HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AH65 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
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 clarify and update FDA radiological health regulations by repealing and amending parts of the general provisions, records and reports requirements, and electronic performance standards for radiation emitting electronic products and medical 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 revisions will eliminate certain radiation protection recommendations, update reporting requirements for certain electronic products, and repeal or amend certain performance standards that have been identified as outdated or duplicative of other reporting requirements by FDA and State regulators.
