Frequently Asked Questions About 510(k) Submission

No, there is no such registration certificate after the 510(k) clearance. Instead, FDA issues a 510(k) clearance letter and post it on their official website which will act as your proof of the 510k clearance.

The FDA’s set time for most 510(k) reviews is 90 days. However, in general it takes around four to nine months and even longer in some cases to get the clearance. This mostly is because of the additional information that the FDA might require. In this case, they put a hold on the 510(k) process and resumes it once they have enough and required information. In most of the cases, you can expect to receive a few questions during the substantial review phase which in turn increases the 510k clearance time. How much time, though, will depend on the number of variables like quality of supporting documentation, predicate device selection, etc.

“FDA cleared” means that medical device has undergone a 510k submission and have received an FDA 510k clearance whereas FDA approval is required for the Class III medical devices and IVDs to be legally marketed. During the FDA approval process they have to undergo the premarket approval (PMA) or a Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) process.
