Possibility of reducing FDA registration fees for medical devices
Like ANVISA, FDA allows different medical device registration fee values to be applied according to the company’s annual revenue. This benefit is granted to both American and foreign companies.
Medical device manufacturers whose annual billing is less than $ 100 million are likely to declare themselves a “Small Business” and can benefit from a substantial discount. To apply for it, it is necessary to send a formal request to FDA. Passarini Regulatory Affairs can help you, contact us.
For a 510 (k) process, the fee reduction obtained reaches almost 76% of the standard value as can be seen in the comparative table below, which shows the standard fee and reduced fee values by submission type.

This fee reduction is valid for the current fiscal year, which began on October 1 2018 and will run through September 30 2019.
For registration processes to be submitted after September 30, a new Small Business request must be made.
Note that the benefit of fee reduction for businesses qualified as Small Business is not applicable to the Establishment annual fee, which for fiscal year 2019 is of $ 4,884.
