Why should I choose
Smith Associates for my 510(k)?

There may be many factors in your selection process, but listed below are the most important.


The Pre-Submission is becoming an increasingly popular means to approach the FDA for assistance with various questions which a potential 510k, IDE or PMA submitter may have. In this more informal setting, the FDA has greater flexibility in answering your questions.

Most testing performed for the 510(k) submission is based on FDA recognized standards. What do you do if the protocols for your test or study is outside of FDA’s recognized standard? Smith Associates will submit a Pre-Submission to the FDA, for a modest fee, to seek FDA’s input concerning your protocol or other questions you may have concerning your upcoming 510(k)/PMA submission.
