New Law Could Limit FDA Testing

New Law Could Allow FDA To Approve Medical Devices Without Going Through Approval Process

FDA LawsA new law on the books could allow the “FDA to approve a new medical device if it is similar to an existing, previously approved device, even if that older device has been recalled because of safety problems. This means that fewer than 1% of new devices go through the FDA’s strenuous Pre-Market Approval process,” reports The Consumerist.

A Consumer Reports poll shows that a vast majority of Americans think preventing safety problems is far more important than saving time and money by limiting safety testing.

The new bill is seen by many to lower medical safety standards in order to simply make it easier for medical devices to hit the market quicker, therefore, making money quicker.
