FR Recognition List Number 057 Date of Entry 12/20/2021 
FR Recognition Number 3-172
Standard
AAMI TIR42:2021
Evaluation of Particulates Associated with Vascular Medical Devices
Scope/Abstract
This document provides information for defining appropriate test methods, determining the source of particulate, assessing the clinical risk of particulate, and establishing product particulate limits. Particulate could arise from many sources including materials, environment, and clinical use. This TIR is intended to offer guidance to the medical device industry when evaluating the tendency for medical devices to release particulate, identifying particulate sources, applying analytical methods for particulate testing, and developing particulate limits based on clinical risk.
Extent of Recognition
Complete standard
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FDA recognition of AAMI TIR42:2010 [Rec# 3-99] will be superseded by recognition of AAMI TIR42:2021 [Rec# 3-172]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 3-99] until December 18, 2022. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 3-99] will not be accepted.
