Product Description

Get Clarity in the Process of Getting Import and Export Documents from the FDA for Medical Devices!

Both import and export of medical devices from and to the US requires complex documentation requirements from the importer-exporter before custom clearance. FDA and US customs work closely to control the incoming and outgoing of medical devices using an intricate distribution of responsibilities and tracking systems. Non-US importers must meet all applicable US medical device regulations in order to import devices into the US even if the product is authorized for marketing in another country. Many devices imported may not be approved for sale in the country of origin.

The regulatory requirements include registration of manufacturing site, listing of devices, compliance with QSR, adverse events reporting requirements, and applicable market approvals such as 510(k) or PMA. One needs to designate a US agent and be subject to FDA audits. Similarly, exporter of medical devices both approved for marketing in the US and unapproved or investigational devices, must provide compliance documents to FDA and customs. An exporter may need to request an export permit letter or export certificate, or it may need to submit a simple notification. Devices exported for research use only require the certificate of exportability. Exporters need to understand FDA electronic tracking system to request export documentations.

Join this audio conference by expert speaker Dr. Mukesh Kumar to have practical insights into the process of getting import and export documents such as certificates and permits from FDA, including description of key terms, concepts, and common issues that importers-exporters of medical devices are likely to encounter.
