Bringing products into the United States or selling without proper notification, registration, or permission is illegal.

It is necessary to obtain clearance/approval and register your facilities and devices with the FDA prior to selling medical devices in the United States. In order to acquire permission from the FDA and register, first we can assist in identifying the classification and product code of the device. After determining the classification, we will move on to the investigation of the product code and preparation of the necessary application if clearance/approval is required. Once clearance/approval for the product is obtained, appropriate registrations will be considered. If clearance/approval is deemed unnecessary for the type of device, then we will proceed to only register the facility and product. In each case, we will consult with you how to navigate the most appropriate path and support you until registration is complete.

The FDA’s Cosmetic Registration Program is a voluntary reporting system for use by manufacturers, packers, and distributors of cosmetic products that are commercially distributed in the United States. Manufacturers are not required to register cosmetics, but cosmetic ingredients are required to be safe for use. In addition to the FDA’s regulations, there are other federal and state regulations, including those from the EPA (Environment Protection Agency), California Proposition 65 and other states regulations concerning cosmetics ingredients. Labeling on cosmetics are not permitted to bear labeling similar to drugs that state a diagnosis, treatment, cure, or prevention, etc. of diseases and conditions. At EGS, we can help you with voluntary registrations for cosmetics with the FDA, check ingredients with all applicable regulations and review your labels to ensure compliance with the relevant regulations.

Our professional consultants have expertise in various fields of clinical research. Since the reliability and consistency of clinical trial data are very important elements when submitting clinical trial results to the FDA, the selection of institutions that perform excellent clinical research is key. International clinical research standards are defined by Good Clinical Practice (GCP).
