eMDR- Electronic Submission of MDR
(Medical Device Reporting)
As of August 14, 2015, the FDA published a Final Rule: Medical Device Reporting; Electronic Submission Requirements requiring manufacturers and importers to submit their device MDR reports electronically to CDRH. Electronic reporting is also available to user facilities, but the rule permits user facilities to continue to submit written reports to the FDA.
As part of our US Agent service Smith Associates can assist the low-volume MDR submitter by electronically submitting your MDRs through our gateway portal. This service is helpful for the international client with infrequent need to submit a medical device report to the FDA.
