This guidance defines the process for De Novo submissions for devices with no predicate that previously would automatically have been considered Class III; provided there is not current classification rule for this type of device. This guidance clarifies that a 510(k) with an NSE determination is no longer required for De Novo submission. The guidance recommends but does not require a Pre-Sub review with FDA.
