Medical Devices; Reprocessed Single-Use Devices; Termination of 
Exemptions From Premarket Notification; Requirement for Submission of 
Validation Data

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is adding 
noncompression heart stabilizers to the list of critical reprocessed 
single-use devices (SUDs) whose exemption from premarket notification 
requirements has been terminated and for which validation data, as 
specified under the Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act of 
2002 (MDUFMA), are necessary in a premarket notification (510(k)). The 
agency is also adding laparoscopic and endoscopic electrosurgical 
accessories to the list of reprocessed SUDs currently subject to 
premarket notification requirements that will now require submission of 
supplemental validation data. FDA is requiring submission of these data 
to ensure that reprocessed single-use noncompression heart stabilizers 
and laparoscopic and endoscopic electrosurgical accessories are 
substantially equivalent to predicate devices, in accordance with 
MDUFMA.

DATES: These actions are effective September 29, 2005. Manufacturers of 
reprocessed single-use noncompression heart stabilizers must submit 
510(k)s for these devices by December 29, 2006, or their devices may no 
longer be legally marketed. Manufacturers of reprocessed single-use 
laparoscopic and endoscopic electrosurgical accessories who already 
have 510(k) clearance for these devices must submit supplemental 
validation data for the devices by June 29, 2006, or their devices may 
no longer be legally marketed.

ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Division of Dockets 
Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, 
rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Submit electronic comments to http://
www.fda.gov/dockets/ecomments. Comments should be identified with the 
docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    On October 26, 2002, MDUFMA (Public Law 107-250), amended the 
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) by adding section 510(o) 
(21 U.S.C. 360(o)), which provided new regulatory requirements for 
reprocessed SUDs. According to this new provision, in order to ensure 
that reprocessed SUDs are substantially equivalent to predicate 
devices, 510(k)s for certain reprocessed SUDs identified by FDA must 
include validation data. These required validation data include 
cleaning and sterilization data, and functional performance data 
demonstrating that each SUD will remain substantially equivalent to its 
predicate device after the maximum number of times the device is 
reprocessed as intended by the person submitting the premarket 
notification.
    Before enactment of the new law, a manufacturer of a reprocessed 
SUD was required to obtain premarket approval or premarket clearance 
for the device, unless the device was exempt from premarket submission 
requirements. Under MDUFMA, some previously exempt reprocessed SUDs are 
no longer exempt from premarket notification requirements. 
Manufacturers of these identified devices were required to submit 
510(k)s that included validation data specified by FDA. Reprocessors of 
certain SUDs already subject to cleared 510(k)s were also required to 
submit the validation data specified by the agency.
    The reprocessed SUDs subject to these new requirements were listed 
in the Federal Register as required by MDUFMA. In accordance with 
section 510(o) of the act, FDA shall revise the lists as appropriate. 
This notice adds two types of reprocessed SUDs to the lists of devices 
subject to MDUFMA's data submission requirements. Noncompression heart 
stabilizers are being added to the list of previously exempt 
reprocessed SUDs that now require the submission of 510(k)s containing 
validation data. Laparoscopic and endoscopic electrosurgical 
accessories are being added to the list of reprocessed SUDs, already 
subject to premarket notification requirements, for which supplemental 
validation data are required.

A. Definitions

    Under section 302(b) of MDUFMA, a reprocessed SUD is defined as an 
``original device that has previously been used on a patient and has 
been subjected to additional processing and manufacturing for the 
purpose of an additional single use on a patient. The subsequent 
processing and manufacture of a reprocessed single-use device shall 
result in a device that is reprocessed within the meaning of this 
definition.''
    Reprocessed SUDs are divided into three groups: (1) critical, (2) 
semicritical, and (3) noncritical. The first two categories reflect 
definitions set forth in MDUFMA, and all three reflect a classification 
scheme recognized in the industry.\1\ These categories of devices are 
defined as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\Spaulding, E.H., ``The Role of Chemical Disinfection in the 
Prevention of Nonsocomial Infections,'' P.S. Brachman and T.C. 
Eickof (ed), Proceedings of International Conference on Nonsocomial 
Infections, 1970, American Hospital Association, Chicago, 254-274, 
1971.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (1) A critical reprocessed SUD is intended to contact normally 
sterile tissue or body spaces during use.
    (2) A semicritical reprocessed SUD is intended to contact intact 
mucous membranes and not penetrate normally sterile areas of the body.
    (3) A noncritical reprocessed SUD is intended to make topical 
contact and not penetrate intact skin.

B. Critical and Semicritical Reprocessed SUDs Previously Exempt From 
Premarket Notification

    MDUFMA required FDA to review the critical and semicritical 
reprocessed SUDs that were previously exempt from premarket 
notification requirements and determine which of these devices required 
premarket notification to ensure their substantial equivalence to 
predicate devices. By April 26, 2003, FDA was required to identify in a 
Federal Register notice those critical reprocessed SUDs whose exemption 
from premarket notification would be terminated and for which FDA 
determined that validation data, as specified under MDUFMA, was 
necessary in a 510(k). According to the law, manufacturers of the 
devices whose exemptions from premarket notification were terminated 
were required to submit 510(k)s that included validation data regarding 
cleaning, sterilization, and functional performance, in addition to all 
the other required elements of a 510(k) identified in Sec.  807.87 (21 
CFR 807.87), within 15 months of

[[Page 56912]]

publication of the notice or no longer market their devices.
    In accordance with section 510(o) of the act, FDA must revise the 
list of devices subject to this requirement as appropriate. On June 26, 
2003 (68 FR 38071), FDA recategorized nine device types from 
semicritical to critical, and added nonelectric gastroenterology-
urology biopsy forceps to the list of critical devices whose exemption 
from premarket notification requirements was being terminated.
    By April 26, 2004, FDA was required to identify in a Federal 
Register notice those semicritical reprocessed SUDs whose exemption 
from premarket notification would be terminated and for which FDA 
determined that validation data, as specified under MDUFMA, was 
necessary in a 510(k). As discussed above, manufacturers of the devices 
whose exemptions from premarket notification were terminated were 
required to submit 510(k)s that included validation data regarding 
cleaning, sterilization, and functional performance, in addition to all 
the other required elements of a 510(k) identified in Sec.  807.87, 
within 15 months of publication of the notice or no longer market their 
devices. In accordance with section 510(o) of the act, FDA must revise 
the list of devices subject to this requirement as appropriate.

C. Reprocessed SUDs Already Subject to Premarket Notification 
Requirements

    MDUFMA also required FDA to review the types of reprocessed SUDs 
already subject to premarket notification requirements and to identify 
which of these devices required the submission of validation data to 
ensure their substantial equivalence to predicate devices. FDA 
published a list of these devices in the Federal Register on April 30, 
2003 (68 FR 23139). As described above, FDA must revise the list of 
devices subject to this requirement as appropriate.
    For devices identified on this list that had already been cleared 
through the 510(k) process, manufacturers were required to submit 
validation data regarding cleaning, sterilization, and functional 
performance within 9 months of publication of the list or no longer 
market their devices.
    For devices on this list that were not yet cleared through the 
510(k) process, manufacturers were required to submit 510(k)s including 
validation data regarding cleaning, sterilization, and functional 
performance, in addition to all the other required elements identified 
in 21 CFR 807.87, in order to market these devices.

II. FDA's Implementation of New Section 510(o) of the Act

    In the Federal Register of April 30, 2003 (68 FR 23139), FDA 
described the methodology and criteria used to identify the reprocessed 
SUDs that were included in the lists required by MDUFMA. First, FDA 
described how it identified the types of SUDs currently being 
reprocessed and how the Spaulding definitions (see footnote 1) were 
used to categorize these devices as critical, semicritical, or 
noncritical. (See Attachment 1.) Next, the agency described its use of 
the Risk Prioritization Scheme (RPS)\2\ that was used to evaluate the 
potential risk (high, moderate, or low) associated with an SUD based on 
the following factors: (1) Risk of infection and (2) risk of inadequate 
performance following reprocessing. FDA identified its final criterion 
as those reprocessed SUDs intended to come in contact with tissue at 
high risk of being infected with the causative agents of Creutzfeldt-
Jakob Disease (CJD). (These are generally devices intended for use in 
neurosurgery and ophthalmology.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\This scheme is described in the February 2000 draft guidance 
document entitled, ``Reprocessing and Reuse of Single-Use Devices: 
Review Prioritization Scheme.'' http://www.fda.gov/cdrh/reuse/
1156.html.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Using this methodology and these criteria, the devices included on 
List I (Critical and Semicritical Reprocessed SUDs Previously Exempt 
from Premarket Notification Requirements that Now Require 510(k)s with 
Validation Data) of the April 30, 2003, June 26, 2003, and April 13, 
2004, Federal Register notices are those critical and semicritical 
reprocessed SUDs that were either high risk according to the RPS or 
intended to come in contact with tissue at high risk of being infected 
with CJD. The devices included on List II (Reprocessed SUDs Subject to 
Premarket Notification Requirements that Now Require the Submission of 
Validation Data) of the April 30, 2003, Federal Register notice are 
those reprocessed SUDs already subject to premarket notification 
requirements that were either high risk according to the RPS or 
intended to come in contact with tissue at high risk of being infected 
with CJD.

III. Revisions to Attachment 1, List I, and List II

A. Revisions to Attachment 1 (List of SUDs Known To Be Reprocessed or 
Considered for Reprocessing)

    FDA has evaluated the comments received regarding section 510(o) of 
the act. In doing so, the agency has determined that all noncompression 
heart stabilizers and endoscopic and laparoscopic electrosurgical 
accessories should be considered high risk devices when reprocessed.
    Noncompression heart stabilizers are intended to move, lift, and 
position the heart while maintaining hemodynamic stability during 
cardiovascular surgery. The agency has determined that noncompression 
heart stabilizers are high risk devices when reprocessed because they 
include features, such as narrow tubing, interlocking parts, and small 
crevices that could impede cleaning and sterilization and because these 
devices contain materials, coatings, or components that may be damaged 
or altered by reprocessing. Therefore, these devices have the potential 
for a high risk of infection and/or inadequate performance when 
reprocessed. This includes noncompression heart stabilizers (device 21 
in Attachment 1) classified under Sec.  870.4500 (21 CFR 870.4500). In 
determining that noncompression heart stabilizers are high risk devices 
when reprocessed, a new product code has been created to identify these 
devices within regulation Sec.  870.4500. The new product code is NQG. 
This new product code has been added to device 21 in Attachment 1 of 
this document.
    Endoscopic and laparoscopic electrosurgical accessories are 
surgical instruments used during minimally invasive surgery, including 
vein harvesting. The agency has determined that these devices should be 
considered high risk devices when reprocessed because they include 
features, such as narrow lumens, that could impede thorough cleaning 
and sterilization and because these devices contain materials, 
coatings, or components that may be damaged or altered by reprocessing. 
Therefore, these devices have the potential for a high risk of 
infection or inadequate performance when reprocessed. This includes 
endoscopic and laparoscopic electrosurgical accessories (device 162 in 
Attachment 1) classified under Sec.  878.4400 (21 CFR 878.4400). In 
determining that endoscopic and laparoscopic electrosurgical 
accessories are potentially high risk devices when reprocessed, a new 
product code has been created to identify these devices within 
regulation Sec.  878.4400. The new product code is NUJ. This new 
product code has been added to device 162 in Attachment 1.
    These changes are reflected in a revised version of Attachment 1 
included in this Federal Register notice.

[[Page 56913]]

B. Revisions to List I (Critical and Semicritical Reprocessed Single-
Use Devices Previously Exempt from Premarket Notification Requirements 
that Now Require 510(k)s with Validation Data)

    Using the RPS, FDA has recategorized noncompression heart 
stabilizers from moderate risk to high risk when reprocessed, and the 
agency has therefore added noncompression heart stabilizers to List I. 
Manufacturers of noncompression heart stabilizers will be required to 
submit 510(k)s with validation data by December 29, 2006, which is 15 
months following this revision of the list.
    To help reprocessors be able to easily identify those critical and 
semicritical reprocessed SUDs that have been categorized into List I in 
this notice and previous Federal Register notices, FDA is re-issuing a 
complete listing of these devices. Therefore, List 1 now identifies all 
critical and semicritical reprocessed SUDs previously exempt from 
premarket notification requirements that now require 510(k)s with 
validation data.

C. Revisions to List II (Reprocessed Single-Use Devices Subject to 
Premarket Notification Requirements that Now Require the Submission of 
Validation Data)

    Using the RPS, FDA has recategorized endoscopic and laparoscopic 
electrosurgical accessories under regulation Sec.  878.4400 from 
moderate risk to high risk when reprocessed. Therefore, endoscopic and 
laparoscopic electrosurgical accessories have been added to List II. 
Under MDUFMA, manufacturers of these devices who have already obtained 
clearance through the 510(k) process must submit validation data 
regarding cleaning, sterilization, and functional performance by June 
29, 2006, which is 9 months following this revision of the list. Upon 
publication of this notice, manufacturers who have not yet obtained 
clearance through the 510(k) process must submit 510(k)s including 
validation data regarding cleaning, sterilization, and functional 
performance, in addition to all the other required elements of a 510(k) 
identified in 21 CFR 807.87, in order to market these devices.

  Require 510(k)s With Validation Data [Manufacturers of noncompression
heart stabilizers will need to submit 510(k)s with validation data by 15
         months following the publication of this revised list.]

IV. Stakeholder Input

    In the Federal Register of February 4, 2003 (68 FR 5643), FDA 
invited interested persons to provide information and share views on 
the implementation of MDUFMA. Since that time, the agency has received 
comments on various MDUFMA provisions, including several on its 
implementation of section 510(o) of the act. As discussed above, one 
comment recommended that heart stabilizers should be considered high 
risk because of the risk of cross contamination and deterioration of 
the mechanical properties of the device. FDA agrees that noncompression 
heart stabilizers, a subset of all heart stabilizers, should be added 
to the list of critical reprocessed SUDs previously exempt from 
premarket notification requirements that will now require 510(k)s with 
validation data. Therefore, FDA has added noncompression heart 
stabilizers to List I.
    Another comment recommended that FDA recategorize endoscopic vessel 
harvesting devices as high risk to be consistent with the 
categorization of other endoscopic accessories under 21 CFR 876.1500 
(Endoscope and accessories). FDA agrees that endoscopic vessel 
harvesting devices should be considered high risk and subject to the 
submission of validation data. As discussed previously, in reviewing 
this comment, the agency also determined that laparoscopic 
electrosurgical accessories should be similarly categorized. Therefore, 
FDA has added laparoscopic and endoscopic electrosurgical accessories 
to List II.
    Other additional comments requested that specific reprocessed SUDs 
be added to either List I or II. Each of these comments was carefully 
considered. However, FDA does not believe, based on the risk-based 
approach described in the April 30, 2003, Federal Register notice, that 
SUDs other than those identified in this notice should be added to the 
Lists at this time.
    Another comment requested the FDA to call for the immediate 
submission and review of validation data regarding cleaning, 
sterilization, and functional performance for all reprocessed SUDs. The 
comment further stated that this request was based on the significant 
number of reprocessed devices which were withdrawn or were deemed to be 
insufficiently supported by validation data as of February 8, 2005.
    Section 510(o) of the act required FDA to identify those 
reprocessed SUDs for which validation data must be submitted in order 
to ensure that those SUDs remain substantially equivalent to predicate 
devices after reprocessing. Because the agency has found that some 
reprocessed SUDs do not require the submission and review of validation 
data in order to demonstrate substantial equivalence, the agency 
identified the types of devices requiring the submission of validation 
data by implementing a risk-based approach. This risk-based approach, 
described in the April 30, 2003, Federal Register notice, identified a 
significant number of reprocessed SUDs that can no longer be legally 
marketed without agency review and clearance of validation data. The 
failure of some manufacturers to submit this validation data and the 
agency's review of submitted data resulted in a determination that a 
significant number of reprocessed SUDs could no longer be legally 
marketed. However, the process also identified a significant number of 
reprocessed SUDs that could continue to be marketed because: (1) they 
were found not to require the submission of additional validation data 
in order to ensure substantial equivalence to legally marketed 
predicate devices; or (2) after a review of submitted validation data, 
they were found to be substantially equivalent to legally marketed 
predicate devices. Therefore, FDA does not intend to expand the list of 
reprocessed SUDs subject to the submission and review of validation 
data to all reprocessed SUDs as requested in the comment. The agency 
believes it has implemented section 510(o) of the act by identifying 
the types of devices that require the submission of validation data and 
determining which of those devices can no longer be legally marketed.

V. Comments

    You may submit written or electronic comments on the designation of 
reprocessed noncompression heart stabilizers and laparoscopic and 
endoscopic electrosurgical devices requiring the submission of 
premarket notifications with validation data to the Division of Dockets 
Management (see ADDRESSES). Submit electronic comments to http://
www.fda.gov/dockets/ecomments. Submit two copies of mailed comments, 
but individuals may submit one copy. You should identify your comments 
with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this 
document. You may see any comments FDA receives in the Dockets 
Management Branch between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
