U.S. FDA Medical Device Regulations

Medical Devices

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates medical device products intended for the use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of humans or other animals. Registrar Corp provides Registration, U.S. Agent, and Regulatory Compliance Assistance for U.S. and Non-U.S. Companies in the Medical Device Industry.

U.S. FDA Medical Device Establishment Registration and Listings

Owners or operators of places of business that are involved in the production and distribution of medical devices intended for use in the United States are required to register with FDA annually. Firms involved in manufacturing, packaging, labeling or reprocessing of devices must pay an annual fee. Many establishments that are required to register with FDA also are required to list their devices.
