Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ASTM F2180-02 [Rec# 11-271] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM F2180-17 [Rec# 11-329].
