Cumulative number of technical analyses of postmarket device problems and performance completed

Cumulative FY 2013 Target: 131 by 9/30/2013

Dictionary: Postmarket device problems and performance issues constitute one of CDRH’s primary public health priorities. Typically, the appearance of such problems begins with many ambiguities and gaps in understanding exactly what happened in the reported incident(s) and, more importantly, why. The technical analyses are used to assess the hazards, determine the adequacy of proposed corrective actions, determine appropriate test methods, and develop case strategies for reported problems.
