What is a 510(k)

510(k) is a premarket submission made to FDA to demonstrate that the device to be marketed is at least as safe and effective, substantially equivalent, to a legally marketed device that is not subject to premarket approval. The name comes from the section 510(k) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA).

CE marked and FDA approved medical devices on the Swiss market

At the moment, Switzerland is still recognizing EU CE Marked devices, although with the additional requirement to appoint a Swiss Authorized Representative. However, the Parliament expressed its concerns over potential shortages of high-quality medical devices and has now decided to open up the Swiss market also to US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved medical devices.
