FDA 510k Clearance
FDA 510k is a file containing sufficient information about a device to demonstrate that the medical device is at least as safe and effective, similar to that of the legally marketed device that is not subjected to PMA.
Organizations planning to launch Class I, Class II, and Class III Medical Devices in the United States intended for human use must submit US FDA 510(k) if Pre-market Approval (PMA) is not required.
Most of the class I devices are exempt from 510k requirements. During the review of the 510k file, if the FDA finds the device as Substantially Equivalent (SE), the FDA will give the clearance with a ‘k’ number.

Following are the major criteria of Substantial Equivalence determination.
SE is based on establishing intended use, design, safety, chemical composition, biocompatibility, performance, standards, materials, manufacturing process, effectiveness, labeling, and other characteristics, as applicable.
- same intended use as the predicate
- same technological characteristics
- different technological characteristics and does not raise different questions of safety and effectivenes
Types of FDA 510k's
Good Decision Making reach your goal faster
Special FDA 510k submission is for already 510k cleared device has some changes which don’t require the full review, but only the summary document.
These changes include indications of use, design, and labeling, but also those changes should not affect the safety and the performance of the new modified device and well-established methods to evaluate the changes.
Depending on the three types of FDA 510k i.e., traditional, abbreviated, and special, there are respective ways to prepare the 510 k. Once the legal submitter chooses the type, there are specific FDA guidances available for the type of 510 k.
Among the three, traditional is the basic and can be followed under any circumstances. In all types, the submitter must prove the substantial equivalence of the subject device with the legally marketed FDA cleared device (predicate device).
This includes a comparison of the intended use, technological, performance, biological, mechanical, and electrical characteristics of the devices.
If there are differences in any of the characteristics, it must be proved that those differences will not affect the safety and performance of the device and must propose scientific methods to evaluate the same with the performance data.
The FDA 510k documentation is not a “form” but it shall include all the information required as per the regulation 21 CFR 807.87. It includes the steps as given below:
- Find a predicate device (legally marketing FDA cleared device)

Frequently Asked Questions
What you mean by proposed predicative device? Is it necessary to include in 510(k)?
Proposed predicate device refers to a lawfully marketed, 510(k) cleared product that is used to determine substantial equivalence of the proposed/new device for 510(k) Submission.
Yes, FDA submission is required because the 510(k) clearance is determined by the proposed device's substantial equivalence to a legally marketed device. A comparison table and discussion of the similarities and differences of your device compared to one or more predicate devices to which you are claiming equivalence is an important aspect of the 510(k).

Explain the 510(k) requirement for the Biocompatibility. What is expected by a reviewer?
If the medical device involves components that come into direct or indirect touch with tissue, the FDA requires that the biocompatibility of tissue-contacting materials be evaluated. Biocompatibility testing is carried out in accordance with ISO 10993-1.
Even though the subject device and the predicate device have the same material and construction, biocompatibility studies must be conducted to demonstrate the device's biological safety.
The reviewer will require information on the testing process and reports in detail. The protocol must comprise the study title and standard, preparation of the test article, thorough test method-positive and negative controls, test parameters and acceptance criteria, and analysis of the results. The report must include an analysis of the test results, conclusions drawn from the data, a photograph of the gadget, and so on.
Is Sterilization validation mandatory for 510(k)?
Only sterile medical devices require sterilization validation. Non-sterile medical devices may not fall under the sterility provision.
For Sterility Information in Premarket Notification 510(k) Submissions for Devices Labeled as Sterile and Reprocessed Single-Use Medical Devices, the FDA issued two guidelines.
Is Shelf-Life studies part of FDA 510(k) Documentation?
FDA 510k documentation includes shelf-life studies. If you want to claim a shelf-life span for your device, you'll need to keep the necessary studies and reports on hand.
Even if accelerated studies are acceptable, FDA usually prefers real-time stability studies. To confirm the safety and effectiveness, the FDA required the performance test to be conducted following the real-time/accelerated research.
If the device is supplied sterile, sterilization and packaging validations should be performed after the shelf-life term.
What you mean by Indication of Use? Intended use?
The purpose of your device is defined by its intended use. It specifies what your item is supposed to perform based on the claims mentioned on the packaging.
The reasons or conditions under which the device would be utilized are defined by the indications of use. Under indications for use, the details of the disease or condition that can be diagnosed, avoided, treated, or alleviated by using the device, as well as the patient group for which the device is designed, are listed.
What type of Animal Testing is required to be a part of FDA 510(k) documentation?
Animal studies were used to evaluate the device's early evidence of device safety, potential performance in a live system, and the biological reaction that a live system would mount to the device.
What type of Clinical Information is part of FDA 510(k) submission?
The clinical study is conducted to collect data to establish the safety and effectiveness of investigational devices.
What is the purpose of Financial Certification or Disclosure Statement in 510(k) Documentation?
If the section does not apply, put the statement "This section does not apply" or "N/A" under that heading if it is part of the FDA 510(k).
Any applicant who files a marketing application for a human medication, biological product, or device, as well as covered clinical studies, is subject to the requirements in this section. Where the application either contracted with one or more clinical investigators to perform the research or submitted studies completed by others who were not under contract to the applicant, the applicant is responsible for making the necessary certification or disclosure statement.
What is the difference between Executive Summary and 510(k) summary?
The FDA 510(k) requirements include a mandated executive summary and 510(k) summaries.
