Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997: 
Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List 
Number: 030

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a 
publication containing modifications the Agency is making to the list 
of standards FDA recognizes for use in premarket reviews (FDA 
recognized consensus standards). This publication, entitled 
``Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List 
Number: 030'' (Recognition List Number: 030), will assist manufacturers 
who elect to declare conformity with consensus standards to meet 
certain requirements for medical devices.

DATES: Submit written or electronic comments concerning this document 
at any time. See section VII of this document for the effective date of 
the recognition of standards announced in this document.

ADDRESSES: Submit written requests for single copies of ``Modifications 
to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 030'' to 
the Division of Small Manufacturers, International and Consumer 
Assistance, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Food and Drug 
Administration, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 66, Silver Spring, MD 
20993. Send two self-addressed adhesive labels to assist that office in 
processing your requests, or fax your request to 301-847-8149. Submit 
written comments concerning this document, or recommendations for 
additional standards for recognition, to the contact person (see FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). Submit electronic comments by email: 
standards@cdrh.fda.gov. This document may also be accessed on FDA's 
Internet site at http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/Standards/ucm123792.htm. See section VI of 
this document for electronic access to the searchable database for the 
current list of FDA recognized consensus standards, including 
Recognition List Number: 030 modifications and other standards related 
information.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott A. Colburn, Center for Devices 
and Radiological Health, Food and Drug Administration, 10903 New 
Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 66, Rm. 3632, Silver Spring, MD 20993, 301-796-
6287.

I. Background

    Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act 
of 1997 (FDAMA) (Pub. L. 105-115) amended section 514 of the Federal 
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C 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 of February 25, 1998 
(63 FR 9561), FDA announced the availability of a guidance entitled 
``Recognition and Use of Consensus Standards.'' The notice described 
how FDA would implement its standard recognition program and provided 
the initial list of recognized standards.
    Modifications to the initial list of recognized standards, as 
published in the Federal Register, are identified in table 1 of this 
document.

    These notices describe the addition, withdrawal, and revision of 
certain standards recognized by FDA. The Agency maintains ``hypertext 
markup language (HTML)'' and ``portable document format (PDF)'' 
versions of the list of ``FDA Recognized Consensus Standards.'' Both 
versions are publicly accessible at the Agency's Internet site. See 
section VI of this document for electronic access information. 
Interested persons should review the supplementary information sheet 
for the standard to understand fully the extent to which FDA recognizes 
the standard.

II. Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List 
Number: 030

    FDA is announcing the addition, withdrawal, correction, and 
revision of certain consensus standards the Agency will recognize for 
use in satisfying premarket reviews and other requirements for devices. 
FDA will incorporate these modifications in the list of FDA Recognized 
Consensus Standards in the Agency's searchable database. FDA will use 
the term ``Recognition List Number: 030'' to identify these current 
modifications.
    In table 2 of this document, FDA describes the following 
modifications: (1) 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 changes to the supplementary 
information sheets of recognized standards that describe revisions to 
the applicability of the standards.
    In section III of this document, FDA lists modifications the Agency 
is making

that involve the initial addition of standards not previously 
recognized by FDA.

IV. List of Recognized Standards

    FDA maintains the Agency's current list of FDA recognized consensus 
standards in a searchable database that may be accessed directly at 
FDA's Internet site at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/cdrh/cfdocs/cfStandards/search.cfm. FDA will incorporate the modifications 
and minor revisions described in this notice into the database and, 
upon publication in the Federal Register, this recognition of consensus 
standards will be effective. 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.

V. Recommendation of Standards for Recognition by FDA

    Any person may recommend consensus standards as candidates for 
recognition under section 514 of the FD&C Act by submitting such 
recommendations, with reasons for the recommendation, to the contact 
person (See FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). 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.

VI. Electronic Access

    You may obtain a copy of ``Guidance on the Recognition and Use of 
Consensus Standards'' by using the Internet. The Center for Devices and 
Radiological Health (CDRH) maintains a site on the Internet for easy 
access to information including text, graphics, and files that you may 
download to a personal computer with access to the Internet. Updated on 
a regular basis, the CDRH home page includes the guidance as well as 
the current list of recognized standards and other standards-related 
documents. After publication in the Federal Register, this notice 
announcing ``Modification to the List of Recognized Standards, 
Recognition List Number: 030'' will be available on the CDRH home page. 
You may access the CDRH home page at http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices.
    You may access ``Guidance on the Recognition and Use of Consensus 
Standards,'' and the searchable database for ``FDA Recognized Consensus 
Standards'' at http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/Standards.
    This Federal Register document on modifications in FDA's 
recognition of consensus standards is available at http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/Standards/ucm123792.htm.

VII. Submission of Comments and Effective Date

    Interested persons may submit to the contact person (see FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) either electronic or written comments 
regarding this document. It is only necessary to send one set of 
comments. Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in 
brackets in the heading of this document. FDA will consider any 
comments received in determining whether to amend the current listing 
of modifications to the list of recognized standards, Recognition List 
Number: 030. These modifications to the list or recognized standards 
are effective upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
