FR Recognition List Number 057 Date of Entry 12/20/2021 
FR Recognition Number 8-569
Standard
ASTM F648-21
Standard Specification for Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene Powder and Fabricated Form for Surgical Implants
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This specification covers ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene powder (UHMWPE) and fabricated forms intended for use in surgical implants.

1.2 The requirements of this specification apply to UHMWPE in two forms. One is virgin polymer powder (Section 4). The second is any form fabricated from this powder from which a finished product is subsequently produced (Section 5). This specification addresses material characteristics and does not apply to the packaged and sterilized finished implant.

1.3 The requirements of this specification do not apply to UHMWPE virgin powder or fabricated forms intentionally crosslinked or blended with other additives, for example, antioxidants.

1.4 The biological response to polyethylene in soft tissue and bone has been well characterized by a history of clinical use and by laboratory studies.
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FDA recognition of ASTM F648-14 [Rec# 8-385] will be superseded by recognition of ASTM F648-21 [Rec# 8-569]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 8-385] until December 18th, 2022. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 8-385] will not be accepted.
