Regulatory Compliance: Laser Product Performance Standards

Manufacturers of lasers and products that contain lasers must submit product reports, supplemental reports and/or abbreviated reports to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) prior to introduction of the reported products into commerce and/or import into the US.


A product report is a report submitted by the manufacturer of a regulated product, i.e. lasers and  products that contain lasers, and describes the product and details how the product complies with the applicable standard. Standards include Federal Laser Product Performance Standards (FLPPS) 21CFR1040.10 and 21CFR1040.11 and/or IEC 60825-1 (International Standard) and explains the quality control program to assure compliance. When product reports are received at CDRH a unique accession number will be assigned for future reference.


Contact LASEResources to support the research, design and development of your laser products, automated processes and robotic cells in compliance with FLPPS and/or IEC 60825-1 and the accurate completion/submission of your laser product reports for issuance of an accession number required for sale and distribution.
