The Coalition submitted comments to the FDA’s General and Plastic Surgery Panel of the Medical Devices Advisory Committee on FDA-2016-N-2147, stating that FRO products in the class II category should require 510(k) clearance and special controls to ensure their safety and effectiveness. The Coalition also advocated for the FDA establishing sub-categories within the FRO classification, outlining what these categories may include. Finally, the Coalition recommended a re-establishment of the safety and efficacy of products in the FRO category.
