Obtaining a Medical Device CFG (Certificate to Foreign Government) from FDA

A Certificate to Foreign Government (CFG) is required by many medical device market regulators in Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America in order to legally sell your product in their territories. A CFG confirms that your device has been cleared or approved for sale in the US. You can present your CFG to regulators in these markets as part of your medical device registration process. Emergo has obtained CFG documents for many clients seeking new markets and can procure a CFG from the US FDA on your behalf.
