Section 4 (Requirements)
FDA's recognition of this section applies only to condoms whose nominal dimensions fall within the following limits:
- condom lay-flat width is less than 54 mm
- condom length is greater than 160 mm
Condoms whose dimensions fall outside this dimensional envelope will be carefully evaluated with respect to potential impact on clinical performance (i.e., slip and break during actual use), as well as with respect to potential impact on key condom tests, e.g., airburst properties and freedom from holes. FDA will also carefully evaluate any condom whose nominal width exceeds 58 mm.
NOTE: General labeling requirements are given in 21 CFR 801.
NOTE: The labeling requirements for condom expiration date, including accelerated and real-time testing, is given in 21 CFR 801.435.
NOTE: FDA referee testing for water leakage (freedom from holes) is intended to follow the current FDA Compliance Policy Guide, sec. 345.100 Condoms: Defects - Criteria for Direct Reference Seizure (CPG 7124.21) and methodology comparable to the hand-and-roll method described in Annex L of ISO 4074:2002/Cor.2:2008(E) Natural latex rubber condoms - requirements and test methods, Technical Corrigendum 2.
