In Brief: Preamendment Class III device classification
This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet
Preamendment Class III device classification: FDA has received data from approximately 10% of manufacturers required to submit safety and effectiveness information by the Aug. 14 deadline under the agency's August 1995 call for data on pre-1976 Class III devices per section 515(i) of the FD&C Act ("The Gray Sheet" Aug. 21, 1995, p. 6).
