What is 510k?

FDA 510k is a file containing sufficient information about a device to demonstrate that the medical device are 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 510k if Pre-market Approval (PMA) is not required.

 

Most of the class I medical device 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. We provide expert advice, predictive device analysis, product code along with regulation number identification, preparation, Identification of testing requirement and standard, US Agent service, Q-Submission, FDA review response, and update covered in our services.

It generally takes 90 days for the traditional 510k Submission.

Abbreviated 510k

This submission is appropriate when the FDA guidance exists for specific medical devices for the demonstration of compliance and any voluntary FDA recognized Consensus Standards are available.

Special 510k

This submission is for already 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 guidance 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 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)
  • Locate the FDA guidance document to prepare the documents
  • For the Abbreviated clearance, locate the Special Controls and/or voluntary consensus standards, if any
  • Prepare the contents of the selected 510(k) in the specific format
  • Make it to the e-copy for submission
  • Submit the user fee

It is a must to demonstrate Substantial Equivalence (SE) to a legally US marketed device of similar intended use. Meeting Substantial Equivalence to the applied device proves the device is as safe and effective as the predicate device.

 

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 effectiveness

The term “Predicate Device” means a FDA 510k or PMA cleared and legally marketed device in the USA, with the same (a), Intended Use (b) Indications for Use (c) Similar technological characteristics to the device in question.

 

It is important to know Predicate Device must be a single unit preferable and presently available in the USA market without any product recalls in the past years.
