Medical Device Establishment Registration Requirement
Manufacturers (both domestic and foreign) and initial distributors (importers) of medical devices must register their establishments with the FDA on an annual basis. Every importer of medical device products to the United States must provide to the FDA with the medical device facility registration number for the foreign drug manufacturer and importer/distributor. Failure to provide this information will result in a detention or refusal of the medical device products.
U.S. Agent Designation
In addition to registering their medical device facility, foreign manufacturers must also designate a U.S. Agent. The U.S. Agent is a person or entity that maintains an address in the United States who can serve as the facilities representative before the FDA.
