FDA (CDRH) Announces Total Product Life Cycle (TPLC) Database

The Total Product Life Cycle (TPLC) database integrates premarket and postmarket data about medical devices. It includes information pulled from CDRH databases including Premarket Approvals (PMA), Premarket Notifications (510[k]), Adverse Events, and Recalls. The TPLC database is refreshed as each of the individual data sources is updated.

The TPLC database description is at http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/CDRH/CDRHTransparency/ucm199906.htm

From this link, the user can move to the search page where you can search the TPLC database by device name, product code (the 3 letter code for each device), or regulation number. The search provides a full report about a particular product line.
