    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    I. Background

    Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (Pub. L. 105-115) amended section 514 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (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 the Federal Register of September 14, 2018 (83 FR 46738), FDA announced the availability of a guidance entitled “Appropriate Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards in Premarket Submissions for Medical Devices.” The guidance describes how FDA has implemented its standards recognition program and is available at https://www.fda.gov/​regulatory-information/​search-fda-guidance-documents/​appropriate-use-voluntary-consensus-standards-premarket-submissions-medical-devices. Modifications to the initial list of recognized standards, as published in the Federal Register, can be accessed at https://www.fda.gov/​medical-devices/​standards-and-conformity-assessment-program/​federal-register-documents.

    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. Additional information on the Agency's Standards and Conformity Assessment Program is available at https://www.fda.gov/​medical-devices/​device-advice-comprehensive-regulatory-assistance/​standards-and-conformity-assessment-program.

    II. Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 052

    FDA is announcing the addition, withdrawal, correction, and revision of certain consensus standards the Agency is recognizing for use in premarket submissions and other requirements for devices. FDA is incorporating these modifications to the list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards in the Agency's searchable database. FDA is using the term “Recognition List Number: 052” to identify the current modifications.

    In Table 1, FDA describes the following modifications: (1) The withdrawal of standards and their replacement by others, if applicable; (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, FDA lists modifications the Agency is making that involve new entries and consensus standards added as modifications to the list of recognized standards under Recognition List Number: 052.

    IV. List of Recognized Standards

    FDA maintains the current list of FDA Recognized Consensus Standards in a searchable database that may be accessed at https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/​scripts/​cdrh/​cfdocs/​cfStandards/​search.cfm. Such standards are those that FDA has recognized by notice published in the Federal Register or that FDA has decided to recognize but for which recognition is pending (because a periodic notice has not yet appeared in the Federal Register). FDA will announce additional modifications and 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 CDRHStandardsStaff@fda.hhs.gov. To be considered, such recommendations should contain, at a minimum, the following information available at https://www.fda.gov/​medical-devices/​standards-and-conformity-assessment-program/​recognition-standard.
