SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
I. Background
For many years, the definition of
‘‘device’’ has been codified at section
201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and
Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). As a result of
the enactment of the Safeguarding
Therapeutics Act (Pub. L. 116–304), the
definition of ‘‘device’’ was redesignated
as paragraph (h)(1) and a new definition
of ‘‘counterfeit device’’ was codified at
paragraph (h)(2) of section 201 of the
FD&C Act.
FDA is issuing this draft guidance to
clarify how the Agency intends to
interpret existing references to section
201(h) of the FD&C Act and how we
intend to reference the definitions of
‘‘device’’ and ‘‘counterfeit device’’ going
forward. This guidance, when finalized,
is intended to provide clarity on
references to the terms ‘‘device’’ and
‘‘counterfeit device’’—as well as
references to section 201(h) of the FD&C
Act—in guidance, regulatory
documents, and other communications
and documents for FDA staff, industry,
and other stakeholders.
This draft guidance is being issued
consistent with FDA’s good guidance
practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115).
The draft guidance, when finalized, will
represent the current thinking of FDA
on ‘‘Referencing the Definition of
‘Device’ in the Federal Food, Drug, and
Cosmetic Act in Guidance, Regulatory
Documents, Communications, and
Other Public Documents.’’ It does not
establish any rights for any person and
is not binding on FDA or the public.
You can use an alternative approach if
it satisfies the requirements of the
applicable statutes and regulations.

of the draft guidance may do so by

document. Please use the document

III. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
FDA tentatively concludes that this
draft guidance contains no collection of
information. Therefore, clearance by the
Office of Management and Budget under
the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 is
not required.
