SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act 
of 1997 (FDAMA) (Public Law 105-115) amended section 514 of the Federal 
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 360d). Amended 
section 514 allows FDA to recognize consensus standards, developed by 
international and national organizations, for use in satisfying 
portions of device premarket review submissions or other requirements.
    In a notice published in the Federal Register ofFebruary 25, 1998 
(63 FR 9561), FDA announced the availability of guidance entitled 
``Recognition and Use of Consensus Standards.'' This notice described 
how FDA will implement its standards program recognizing the use of 
certain standards and provided the initial list of recognized 
standards.
    In Federal Register notices published on October 16, 1998 (63 FR 
55617); July 12, 1999 (64 FR 37546); November 15, 2000 (65 FR 69022); 
and May 7, 2001 (66 FR 23032), FDA modified its initial list of 
recognized standards. These notices described the addition, withdrawal, 
and revision of certain standards recognized by FDA. When these notices 
were published, the agency maintained ``html'' and ``pdf'' versions of 
the list of ``FDA Recognized Consensus Standards.'' Both versions were 
publicly accessible at the agency's Internet site. The agency maintains 
the current list in a searchable data base accessible to the public. 
See section V of this document for electronic access information.

II. Discussion of Modifications to the List of Recognized 
Standards, Recognition List Number: 006

    FDA is announcing the addition, withdrawal, correction, and 
revision of certain consensus standards the agency will recognize for 
use in satisfying premarket reviews for devices. FDA will incorporate 
these modifications in the list of ``FDA Recognized Consensus 
Standards'' in the agency's searchable data base. FDA will use the term 
``Recognition List Number: 006'' to identify: (1) Supplementary 
information sheets for standards added to the list for the first time, 
(2) standards added to replace withdrawn standards, (3) still 
recognized standards for which minor revisions are made to clarify the 
application of the standards, and (4) standards withdrawn with no 
replacement.
    At the end of this notice, FDA lists modifications the agency is 
making that involve: (1) The initial addition of standards not 
previously recognized by FDA and (2) the addition of standards in 
conjunction with the withdrawal of other standards that are replaced by 
these later, amended, or different standards.
    In this section, FDA describes: (1) Modifications that involve the 
withdrawal of standards and their replacement by others, (2) the 
correction of errors made by FDA in listing previously recognized 
standards, and (3) the addition of certain recognized standards with 
revisions to the supplementary information sheets involving changes in 
significant applications of the standards.

    FDA will announce additional modifications and minor revisions to 
the list of recognized consensus standards, as needed, in the Federal 
Register once a year, or more often, if necessary.

IV. Recommendation of Standards for Recognition by FDA

    Any person may recommend consensus standards as candidates for 
recognition under the new provision of section 514 of the act by 
submitting such recommendations, with reasons for the recommendation, 
to the contact person (address above). To be properly considered, such 
recommendations should contain, at a minimum, the following 
information: (1) Title of the standard, (2) any reference number and 
date, (3) name and address of the national or international standards 
development organization, (4) a proposed list of devices for which a 
declaration of conformity to this standard should routinely apply, and 
(5) a brief identification of the testing or performance or other 
characteristics of the device(s) that would be addressed by a 
declaration of conformity.
