Market Trends

Launch of medical devices with RFID scanners is expected to propel growth of the global RFID in healthcare market. For instance, in January 2020, Dentsply Sirona launched CEREC Primemill, a grinding and milling machine with 7-inch touch interface, an integrated camera for scanning blocks with compatible data matrix code, and an RFID scanner for reading tool information.

Major players in the global RFID in healthcare market are focused on adopting partnership strategies to enhance their market share. For instance, in September 2020, Kit Check, a provider of automated and intelligent medication management solutions, signed an agreement with SCA Pharmaceuticals that allows SCA to add an embedded RFID tag to all of its products.

Regulations

U.S.

If a study is in compliance with all of the parameters listed above, FDA intends to exercise enforcement discretion by not initiating a regulatory action on the basis that the study fails to comply with any of the following regulatory or statutory requirements (to the extent they apply) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) when those requirements are triggered by the use of RFID in the study. The agency intends to limit its exercise of enforcement discretion to those regulatory issues that are specifically triggered by RFID (that is, triggered by the use of RFID readers, the addition of RFID tags, or the placement of seals):

  • Any RFID-triggered requirements of 21 C.F.R. & 314.70 and section 506A of the Act.
  • Any RFID-triggered submission requirements under 21 C.F.R. part 314 and section 505 of the Act, except for field alert report requirements.
  • Any RFID-triggered requirements of 21 C.F.R. part 11.5
  • Any RFID-triggered requirements of 21 C.F.R. parts 210 and 211 and section 501(a)(2)(B) of the Act (current Good Manufacturing Practices).6
  • Any RFID-triggered requirements of 21 C.F.R. part 207 and section 510 of the Act (Registration and Listing).
  • FDA expects that all of the drugs included in these studies will comply with all applicable provisions of the Act in all other respects, and they will initiate regulatory action if not complied. This policy expires automatically on December 31, *2012*, they may change policy sooner or deviate from it in particular cases in order to protect the public health. The *December 2012* date should provide sufficient time for industry to gain experience with RFID technology. When RFID is used outside of the parameters described above, they expect full compliance with all applicable FDA requirements. If RFID technology is used outside of those parameters and does not comply with applicable requirements, they do not expect to exercise enforcement discretion.
