Detailed 510(k) Process

  • Appoint FDA 510k Consultants: The consultant or consulting team should have extensive knowledge and experience with 510k submissions for medical devices. The consultants should be in charge of your submissions and communications until you receive your K number.
  • Determine whether your product (a) is a medical device or (b) a radiation-emitting product: Once it is identified, proceed with compiling the FDA regulatory requirements required for marketing the product in the US.
  • Classify the Medical Device: This will help us make sure the 510k route can be used to market along with the device code submission procedure and other applicable compliance issues.
  • Implement 21 CFR 820 if Applicable: If the product is not exempted from GMP, you need to implement GMP in the manufacturing location. This is not a requirement for 510(k) submission, but all firms registered should be prepared to face Inspection; if failed FDA will issue a warning letter to the manufacturer, and you will be forced to withdraw products from the market.
  • Test the product/Equipment: For preparing FDA notifications, test reports and datasheets are essential. The applicable standards have to be identified, and testing has to be done from accredited laboratories.
  • Review the Test Report: Review of test reports to be carried out based on the standards and acceptance criteria. Any errors in the report cannot be used in the 510(k) notification.
  • Appoint US Agent: Appoint a US Agent to assist the FDA in communications with the foreign establishment, answering questions concerning the foreign establishment’s devices to be imported into the United States.
  • Prepare 510k Notification and Submit: Prepare 510(k) notification with the help of a 510k consultant, and submit to the FDA directly or through FDA-approved third-party agencies such as UL, Intertek, and BSI with the help of a Consultant and US Agent.
  • Register the establishment: The manufacturer has to register the establishment involved in the production and distribution of medical devices intended for use in the United States are required to register annually with the FDA under section 510(g) of the act.  An owner or operator of an establishment located in any of the states in the US as defined in section 201(a)(1) of the act shall register its name, and places of business and list the devices if interstate trading is done.
  • List the device with the FDA: Once the establishment registration is done, the products intended to be sold in the US have to be listed under registered establishments. If a device requires premarket approval or notification before being marketed in the U.S., then the owner/operator should also submit the FDA premarket submission number.
