OVERVIEW:
Any medical device that is legally in the U.S. may be exported anywhere in the world without prior FDA notification or approval. The export provisions under section 802 of the FD&C Act only applies to unapproved devices. Devices that have not been approved or cleared in the U.S. must follow the export provisions of the FD&C Act. Foreign firms that manufacture medical devices and/or products that emit radiation that are imported into the United States must comply with applicable U.S. regulations before, during, and after importing into the U.S. or its territories.

All medical devices that are imported into the U.S. must meet Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirements in addition to FDA. Product that does not meet FDA regulatory requirements may be detained upon entry.

This Webinar will provide a broad overview of the requirements and expectations and an introduction to the regulations, including 21 CFR 1, Subpart E-Imports and Exports. Entry information should identify the product and include appropriate information to demonstrate that the product is in compliance with FDA regulations. Product information should include device name and product code. The affirmation of compliance should include: importer registration number, foreign establishment registration number and name of U.S. agent, medical device listing number, and Premarket Notification 510(k) or Premarket Approval number, if applicable. For exporting, while FDA does not place any restrictions on the export of devices, certain countries may require written certification that a firm or its devices are in compliance with U.S. law. In such instances FDA will accommodate U.S. firms by providing a Certificate for Foreign Government (CFG). Learn the process for unapproved and approved medical devices to be exported and the documentation process involved.
