On July 31, 2012, the FDA published the fee rates and payment procedures for medical device user fees for FY 2013. The fee rates apply from October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013. To avoid delay in the review of an application, the fee should be paid before or at the time the application is submitted to FDA. The standard fee for a premarket application is $248,000 for FY 2013. More information about the FY 2013 fees can be found at the FDA web site.
