As part of the FDA oversight of the safety and effectiveness of medical devices marketed in the U.S., it inspects certain foreign and domestic establishments where these devices are manufactured. To help FDA address shortcomings in its inspection program, the Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act of 2002 required FDA to accredit third parties to inspect certain establishments. In response, FDA has implemented two voluntary programs for that purpose. This statement assesses: (1) FDAs program for inspecting foreign establishments that manufacture medical devices for the U.S. market; and (2) FDAs programs for third-party inspections of those establishments.
