The center will accept participation requests for its Expedited Access Program beginning April 15 now that it has finalized guidance on the program. It is intended for devices that treat or diagnosis life-threatening or irreversibly debilitating conditions that address an unmet need. The program is primarily targeted at PMA devices, but those that use the de novo classification route are also eligible for a watered-down version.
