The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced the availability of its publication, “Modifications to the List of Recognized Standards, Recognition List Number: 034,” which outlines modifications the agency is making to the list of standards it recognizes for use in premarket submissions and other requirements for medical devices. FDA says the guide will help manufacturers that choose to declare conformity with consensus standards to meet certain requirements for medical devices and notes that it will incorporate the modifications in its searchable database.
