Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (“CVM”) is responsible for the regulation of veterinary medical devices intended for use with both family pets and food-producing animals. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA” or “the Act”) does not include separate and distinct definition for the term “veterinary medical device.” Instead, the FDCA contains and FDA relies on a single universal definition for the term “medical device” that covers such products for both humans and animals.

To market and sell a veterinary medical device in interstate commerce, a manufacturer must insure that the item has been safely manufactured and properly labeled. CVM has regulatory jurisdiction over veterinary medical devices and has shown little interest in the market sector based on the existence of historical enforcement action. However, with the growing marketing and promotion of injectable devices for horses and dogs, it is possible that such enforcement discretion may be abandoned for greater regulatory scrutiny and oversight.

This webinar is designed to provide attendees with an overview of FDA’s regulation of veterinary medical devices and to provide insight into how the market may develop in the future.

An instrument, apparatus, implement, machine, contrivance, implant, in- vitro reagent, or other similar or related article, including any component, part, or accessory thereof, which is intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions; in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease in man or other animals; or which is intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of man or other animals does not achieve any of its principal intended purposes through chemical action within or on the body of man or other animals, and is not dependent upon being metabolized for the achievement of any of its principal intended purposes. See FDCA Section 201(h) (emphasis added). Examples of medical devices regulated by FDA include products such as needles, syringes, surgical instruments, prosthetic devices, X-ray equipment, some injectable scaffoldings, diagnostic test kits, and dental appliances.
