How do I get this 510(k) out of the way?

We hear this question quite frequently from small medical device companies.

Usually what they’re really asking is: “How do I get the FDA to let me sell my device without using Design Controls?”

Short answer: You don’t.

How do I get this 510(k) out of the way?

In order to get your product to market, achieving and maintaining compliance is absolutely necessary and ideally it starts from the very first product draft.

However, we recognize that many companies:


Fully understand their product and it’s intended use and have spent a ton of time and money developing it but might not have performed all of the testing required by the FDA


Know in detail how it was designed, but perhaps don’t have a formal Design and Development Process


Are well aware of the risks of the device, but very often don’t have a formal Risk Management Program

Now, you need to get clearance for a 510K Premarket Notification, and you’re overwhelmed by the FDA’s “help” documents.

Don’t go it alone.

Trying to get FDA Approval on your own can lead to costly delays, massive frustration, and significant setbacks in getting your product to market and generating revenue.

In fact, fully understanding regulatory and quality compliance requires a level of insight and knowledge few organizations possess.
