US FDA 510k

US FDA 510k is a Premarket Submission made to Food and Drug Administration to demonstrate that the device to be marketed in USA is safe and effective and is substantially equivalent to device which is already in market after FDA clearances. During the FDA 510k approval process, the medical device’s safety, risks benefits and other information are looked upon. A successful 510k submission or 510k clearances means FDA gives permission to sell the product after completing the establishment registration and device listing.

Most Class II (and some Class I and Class III) medical devices are subject to FDA 510k submission and clearance process. This whole concept is based upon substantial equivalence and is unique to the US medical device regulations. So, the objective is to show that your device is substantially equivalent to some other devices already on the US market with 510k number (k number) .
