IOM Report on FDA’s 510(k) Medical Device Clearance Process to be Released July 29
Released: 7/22/2011

Prompted by concerns that have been raised about whether the 510(k) clearance process is adequately protecting and promoting the public’s health, the FDA asked the IOM to convene a committee to evaluate the process and make recommendations aimed at protecting public health while preserving a mechanism to get new medical devices to market in a timely manner.
