Deciding When to Submit a 510(k) for a Change to an Existing Device (FDA)

The device guidance updates FDA requirements for determining when a 510(k) premarket notification is required for device changes. It offers principles and flow charts for assessing label changes, and assessing technology, engineering, performance, and materials changes for in vitro diagnostic and non-IVD devices. Also included are risk assessment considerations, case examples with explanations why a 510(k) is or is not needed, and documentation required if a 510(k) is not needed. The software guidance focuses on how to determine when a software change requires filing a 510(k).
