US FDA Medical Device and IVD Regulatory Strategy

The US Food and Drug Administration's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) enforces a three-tier regulatory system for medical devices based on risk. Medium-risk devices typically require 510(k) Premarket Notification to be sold in the US, while high-risk devices must go through the Premarket Approval (PMA) process prior to commercialization. Most manufacturers must also meet quality system requirements laid out in 21 CFR Part 820 to market their devices in the US.
