HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AH65 Publication ID: Spring 2018 
Title: Radiological Health Regulations; Amendments to Records and Reports for Radiation Emitting Electronic Products; Amendments to Performance Standards for Diagnostic X-ray, Laser and Ultrasonic Products  

The rule will update FDA radiological health regulations and withdraw parts of the general provisions, records and reports requirements, and electronic performance standards for radiological devices.  Current regulations contain radiation protection recommendations, reporting requirements for manufacturers and assemblers of electronic products, and performance standards for certain electronic products.  Some of the current regulations apply to electronic products (i.e., not necessarily having a medical application) but not devices (i.e., having a medical application).  The regulation would eliminate radiation protection recommendations, reporting requirements for certain electronic products, and performance standards that have been identified as obsolete and no longer necessary.
