The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the fee rates and payment procedures for medical device user fees for FY 2010

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act), as amended by the Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act of 2002 (MDUFMA), the Medical Device User Fee Stabilization Act of 2005 (MDUFSA), and the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2007 (title II of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA)),
authorizes FDA to collect user fees for certain medical device submissions, and annual fees both for certain periodic reports and for certain establishments subject to registration. The FY 2010 fee rates are provided in this document. These fees apply from October 1, 2009, through September 30, 2010. To avoid delay in the review of your application, you should pay the fee before or at the time you submit your application to FDA. The fee you must pay is the fee that is in effect on the later of the date that your application is received by FDA or the date your fee payment is received. If you want to pay a reduced small business fee, you must qualify as a small business before you make your submission to FDA; if you do not qualify as a small business before you make your submission to FDA, you will have to pay the higher standard fee. This document provides information on how the fees for FY 2010 were determined, the payment procedures you should follow, and how you may qualify for reduced small business fees.
