FDA Issues Final Rule on Symbols in Labeling

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or the Agency) issued this final rule revising its medical device and certain biological product labeling regulations to explicitly allow for the optional inclusion of graphical representations of information, or symbols, in labeling (including labels) without adjacent explanatory text (referred to in this document as "stand-alone symbols") if certain requirements are met. FDA back in June 2016 issued a final rule to allow for the use of standalone symbols on medical device and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) labels in an effort to align with international standards. In addition to allowing the use of standalone symbols, the final rule also permits the use of the symbol statements "Rx only" and "Rx only" for prescription devices. FDA says the finale rule is optional, though the agency thinks that it will be a boon to industry and estimates the reduced workload will result in annual savings of up to $25.5 million.
