When is the FDA expected to change from 21 CFR 820 to ISO 13485?

The FDA planned to transition the quality system requirements from 21 CFR 820 to adopting ISO 13485:2016 by reference. The transition was planned for 2020, but the Covid-19 global pandemic delayed the implementation. The FDA published a final rule for the new QMSR on February 2, 2024. The FDA plans to implement amended regulations within 24 months (i.e., February 2, 2026).

What is the QMSR (the future 21 CFR 820)?

The “QMSR” is an acronym for Quality Management System Regulation. This is the FDA’s new final rule published on February 2, 2024. The FDA modernized the current 21 CFR 820 regulation by incorporating ISO 13485:2016 by reference. The final rule is a 30-page PDF document, but the sections of the regulation are now only six sub-sections that comprise two pages at the end of the PDF.

What is QSR (the current 21 CFR 820)?

21 CFR Part 820 is the FDA Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulation, which became effective on December 18, 1978. The regulations ensure that medical devices distributed in the US market are designed and developed with adequate procedures, people are trained, and quality records are maintained. In 1990, the FDA revised of the CGMP regulation to add the requirement for design controls (i.e., 21 CFR 820.30) authorized by the Safe Medical Devices Act. The revised regulation was released in 1996 and referred to as the Quality System Regulations (i.e., QSR). Title 21 is the section of the Code of Federal Regulations (i.e., CFR) reserved for the Food and Drug Administration (i.e., FDA) regulations.
