(b) Patient names or other identifiers may be disclosed to a manufacturer or other person subject to this part or to a physician when the health or safety of the patient requires that such persons have access to the information. Such notification will be pursuant to agreement that the record or information will not be further disclosed except as the health aspects of the patient requires. Such notification does not constitute public disclosure and will not trigger the availability of the same information to the public generally. $821.60 Retention of records.
Persons required to maintain records under this part shall maintain such records for the useful life of each tracked device they manufacture or distribute. The useful life of a device is the time a device is in use or in distribution for use. For example, a record may be retired if the person maintaining the record becomes aware of the fact that the device is no longer in use, has been explanted, returned to the manufacturer, or the patient has died.
PART 860-MEDICAL DEVICE CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURES
Sec. 860.1 Scope. 860.3 Definitions. 860.5 Confidentiality and use of data and in
formation submitted in connection with
classification and reclassification. 860.7 Determination of safety and effective
(a) This part implements sections 513, 514(b), 515(b), and 520(1) of the act with respect to the classification and reclassification of devices intended for human use.
(b) This part prescribes the criteria and procedures to be used by classification panels in making their recommendations and by the Commissioner in making the Commissioner's determinations regarding the class of regulatory control (class I, class II, or class III) appropriate for particular devices. Supplementing the general Food and Drug Administration procedures governing advisory committees (part 14 of this chapter), this part also provides procedures for manufacturers, importers, and other interested persons to participate in proceedings to classify and reclassify devices. This part also describes the kind of data required for determination of the safety and effectiveness of a device, and the circumstances under which information submitted to classification panels or to the Commissioner in connection with classification and reclassification proceedings will be available to the public. $ 860.3 Definitions.
For the purposes of this part:
(a) Act means the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
(b) Commissioner means the Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Food and Drug Administration, United States Department of Health and Human Services, or the Commissioner's designee.
(c) Class means one of the three categories of regulatory control for medical devices, defined below:
Subpart B-Classification 860.84 Classification procedures for “old de

(8) Any known existing standards applicable to the device, device components, or device materials.
(h) Classification panel means one of the several advisory committees established by the Commissioner under section 513 of the act and part 14 of this chapter for the purpose of making recommendations to the Commissioner on the classification and reclassification of devices and for other purposes prescribed by the act or by the Commissioner.
(i) Generic type of device means a grouping of devices that do not differ significantly in purpose, design, materials, energy source, function, or any other feature related to safety and effectiveness, and for which similar regulatory controls are sufficient to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness.
(j) Petition means a submission seeking reclassification of a device in accordance with $ 860.123. [43 FR 32993, July 28, 1978, as amended at 57 FR 58403, Dec. 10, 1992; 65 FR 56480, Sept. 19, 2000]
(b) In general, data and information submitted to classification panels in connection with the classification of devices under $ 860.84 will be available immediately for public disclosure upon request. However, except as provided by the special rules in paragraph (c) of this section, this provision does not apply to data and information exempt from public disclosure in accordance with part 20 of this chapter: Such data and information will be available only in accordance with part 20.
(c)(1) Safety and effectiveness data submitted to classification panels or to the Commissioner in connection with the classification of a device under $ 860.84, which have not been disclosed previously to the public, as described in $20.81 of this chapter, shall be regarded as confidential if the device is classified in to class III. Because the classification of a device under $ 860.84 may be ascertained only upon publication of a final regulation, all safety and effectiveness data that have not been disclosed previously are not available for public disclosure unless and until the device is classified into class I or II, in which case the procedure in paragraph (c)(2) of this section applies.
(2) Thirty days after publication of a final regulation under 8 860.84 classifying a device into class I or class II, safety and effectiveness data submitted for that device that had been regarded as confidential under paragraph (c)(1) of this section will be available for public disclosure and placed on public display in the office of the Dockets Management Branch, Food and Drug Administration unless, within that 30-day period, the person who submitted the data demonstrates that the data still fall within the exemption for trade secrets and confidential commercial information described in $20.61 of this chapter. Safety and effectiveness data submitted for a device that is classified into class III by regulation in accordance with $860.84 will remain confidential and unavailable for public disclosure so long as such data have not been disclosed to the public as described in $ 20.81 of this chapter.
(3) Because device classification affects generic types of devices, in making determinations under $860.84 concerning the initial classification of a
