|Processes Affected: |
|510(k), PMA, IDE, PDP, HDE|
|Type of Standard:|
| National, Vertical|
|Extent of Recognition:|
|Complete Standard except as noted below:
- Warning against reuse, no exceptions: inactivation of CJD and other slow viruses has not been demonstrated therefore the notes identified in sections 22.214.171.124(2) and A3.1.1 and A3.1.2 do not apply.
- Pyrogenicity requirements need to be modified to reflect that the device is non-pyrogenic to a level of 0.06 EU/ml is accordance with LAL.
NOTE: The standard includes requirements for minimum labeling, safety, and performance of Intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring devices. The safety and performance requirements specified do not set acceptance criteria and do not include relevant electrical safety and mechanical performance requirements. Presentation of the results may be required.
- Biocompatibility requirements should be expanded to be in accordance with ISO 10993-1.
- Sterilant residues - there is no provision to assure that sterilization by ETO meets the minimum residue levels specified in ISO 10993-7.
- Sterile packaging requirements should include expiration dating and data from testing may be needed to support the specified date.
- Devices incorporating microprocessing may need to meet software requirements identified in the guidance cited below.
