Silver Spring – September 6th, 2017 – The final guidance, Deviation Reporting for Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products Regulated Solely Under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act and 21 CFR Part 1271," explains when it is necessary for manufacturers of certain human cells, tissues, and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/Ps), which do not require FDA premarket review and approval, to report to the agency when infectious disease testing or determination of other donor eligibility criteria have not been performed properly. While this is not a new requirement, the final guidance seeks to provide greater clarity to industry on how to properly follow the regulations already in effect. Specifically, the FDA is issuing this guidance to provide establishments that manufacture non-reproductive HCT/Ps with specific recommendations and relevant examples for complying with the applicable requirements to investigate and report HCT/P deviations to the FDA.
