Agreement for Shipments of Devices for Sterilization

OMB 0910-0131

OMB 0910-0131

Nonsterile medical devices that are labeled as sterile but are in interstate transit to a facility to be sterilized are normally considered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be adulterated and misbranded. FDA regulations established a control mechanism by which firms may manufacture and label medical devices as "sterile" at one establishment and ship the devices in interstate commerce for actual sterilization at another establishment, a practice that facilitates the processing of devices and is economically necessary for some firms. Manufacturers and sterilizers may sign an agreement containing instructions for maintaining accountability of the number of units in each shipment, acknowledgment that the devices are nonsterile and are being shipped for further processing, and specifications for the product's sterilization processing. This agreement allows the manufacturer to ship adulterated or misbranded products to be sterilized without initiating regulatory action and provides FDA with a means to protect consumers from use of nonsterile products. The agreement must include: (a) Instructions for maintaining accountability of the number of units in each shipment; (b) acknowledgment that the devices are nonsterile, being shipped for further processing; and (c) specifications for sterilization processing. These agreements must be retained for two years, as FDA may review them up to two years after final shipment or delivery of devices.
