GMP Exempt? No
    Note: Class II devices the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has also published a list of Class II (special controls) devices subject to certain limitations, that are now exempt from the premarket notification requirements under the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (the Modernization Act). FDA believes that these exemptions will relieve manufacturers from the need to submit premarket notification submissions for these devices and will enable FDA to redirect the resources that would be spent on reviewing such submissions to more significant public health issues. FDA is taking this action in order to meet a requirement of the Modernization Act.
    Note: FDA intends to propose exempting these devices from premarket notification pursuant to the criteria at sections 510(l) and 510(m) of the FD&C Act, subject to limitations on exemption criteria found in .9 of the associated classification regulation. Until the publication of a final rule or order exempting these devices from 510(k), FDA does not intend to enforce compliance with 510(k) requirements for these devices. FDA does not expect manufacturers to submit 510(k)s for these devices during this time period.
