Select Updates for Recommendations for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 Waiver Applications for Manufacturers of In Vitro Diagnostic Devices; Draft Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff; Availability
Document Number: 2017-25775
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-11-29
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the availability of the draft guidance entitled ``Select Updates for Recommendations for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) Waiver Applications for Manufacturers of In Vitro Diagnostic Devices.'' FDA has developed this draft guidance to implement a section of the 21st Century Cures Act (Cures Act) that requires FDA to revise ``V. Demonstrating Insignificant Risk of an Erroneous Result Accuracy'' of the guidance ``Recommendations for Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) Waiver Applications for Manufacturers of In Vitro Diagnostic Devices'' (``2008 CLIA Waiver Guidance'') that was issued on January 30, 2008. This draft guidance updates FDA's thinking regarding the appropriate use of comparable performance between a waived user and a moderately complex laboratory user to demonstrate accuracy. This draft guidance is not final nor is it in effect at this time.
Recommendations for Dual 510(k) and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments Waiver by Application Studies; Draft Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff; Availability
Document Number: 2017-25774
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-11-29
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the availability of the draft guidance entitled ``Recommendations for Dual 510(k) and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Waiver by Application Studies.'' It describes study designs for generating data that supports both 510(k) clearance and CLIA waived categorization. Use of the Dual 510(k) and CLIA Waiver by Application pathway is optional; however, FDA believes this pathway is in many instances the least burdensome and fastest approach for manufacturers to obtain a CLIA waived categorization in addition to 510(k) clearance for new In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) devices. FDA believes increased use of this pathway will speed up the process of bringing simple and accurate IVD devices to CLIA waived settings, which will better serve patients and providers. This draft guidance is not final nor is it in effect at this time.
