Accelerated Device Approval Services LLC ("ADAS") can review your 510(k) application, on behalf of the FDA, as a Third-Party Reviewer for various low-risk medical devices. We are the most well-established Third-Party Reviewer making clearance decisions on 510(k) applications. For example, according to an independent poll by FDA-Insider.com, we are considered to be the best overall Third-Party Reviewer: http://www.fda-insider.com/top-third-party-reviewers.htm

 

The average 510(k) that we review receives a 510(k) clearance within only 49-days. One of the reasons for the quicker clearance timeline is because all our reviewers have regulatory experience in each medical device sector, such as Radiology and Gastroenterology. In fact, most of our current reviewers had previously worked as reviewers at the FDA.


The 510(k) filing fee is $10,500 to review and decide on whether your device is substantially equivalent to its designated predicate device. The FDA's recommendations on what to include within your 510(k) application are summarized in our “510(k) Format” webpage.


We will provide you with a list of all deficiencies in your 510(k) application within only 5-working days. Thereafter, you would have to resolve all our identified deficiencies - this step normally takes 14-days or less. The FDA then only has 30-days to assess our 510(k) decision memo for accuracy or any mistakes, as per section 21 U.S.C. 360m(a)(2)(B).
