FDA Finalizes Regulation For Certain Software, Hardware Used With Medical Devices
Date:2/14/2011

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the FDA announced a final rule that provides a less-burdensome path to market for certain hardware and software products used with medical devices. The rule classifies these products, known as Medical Device Data Systems or MDDS, as Class I or low-risk devices, making them exempt from premarket review but still subject to quality standards.

Examples of MDDS products include: devices that collect and store data from a glucose meter for future use or that transfer lab results to be displayed at a nursing station for future use.

By down-classifying these devices into Class I, the FDA is exempting all manufacturers of MDDS from premarket notification and applying the level of regulation reserved for low risk devices. Moreover, these manufacturers must comply with all Class I requirements including registering with the FDA, listing their MD
