NHRIC (National Health Related Items Code) The National Health Related Items Code (NHRIC) is a system for identification and numbering of marketed device packages that is compatible with other numbering systems such as the National Drug Code (NDC) or Universal Product Code (UPC). Those manufacturers who desire to use the NHRIC number for unique product identification may apply to FDA for a labeler code.  This database contains NHRIC data retrieved from records that date back 20 years. Annually
Premarket Approvals (PMA) Premarket approval by FDA is the required process of scientific review to ensure the safety and effectiveness of all devices classified as Class III devices.  An approved Premarket Approval Application (PMA)  is, in effect, a private license granted to the applicant for marketing a particular medical device.  This database may be searched by a variety of fields and is updated on a monthly basis. Monthly
Premarket Notifications (510(k)s) Medical device manufacturers are required to submit a premarket notification or 510(k) if they intend to introduce a device into commercial distribution for the first time or reintroduce a device that will be significantly changed or modified to the extent that its safety or effectiveness could be affected.  This database of releasable 510(k)s can be searched by 510(k) number, applicant, device name or FDA product code.  Summaries of safety and effectiveness information is available via the web interface for more recent records.  The database is updated monthly.

FDA Recognized Consensus Standards This database consists of those national and international standards recognized by FDA which manufacturers can declare conformity to and is part of the information the Center can use to make an appropriate decision regarding the clearance or approval of a submission.  Information submitted on conformance with such standards will have a direct bearing on safety and effectiveness determinations made during the review of IDEs, HDEs, PMAs, and PDPs.  Conformance with recognized consensus standards in and of itself, however, may not always be a sufficient basis for regulatory decisions. Quarterly
