Representing Foreign Manufacturers from Establishment Registration to distribution.

U.S. Agent and FDA Official Correspondent

As an FDA-registered Official Correspondent and U.S. Agent, QA/RA Consulting Group can assist with your FDA registration. Establishment Registration utilizing the FDA Unified Registration and Listing System (FURLS) is the first step in reaching U.S. markets with your medical device.

U.S. Agent

Foreign manufacturers are required to appoint a U.S. Agent during Establishment Registration. This registration requirement applies to the following categories of foreign establishments:

  • Primary Manufacturers

  • Contract Manufacturers and Remanufacturers

  • Contract Sterilizers

  • Foreign Exporter of devices located in a foreign country

  • Specification Developers/Reprocessors of single use devices

A U.S. Agent must either reside in the U.S. or maintain a place of business in the U.S. The U.S. Agent cannot use a post office box as an address or an answering service. The U.S. Agent must be available to answer the phone or have an employee available to answer the phone during normal business hours.

As your U.S. Agent, we will:

  • assist you with communications with the FDA;

  • respond to FDA questions concerning your devices that are imported or offered for import into the United States;

  • assist you in scheduling FDA inspections; and

  • if the FDA is unable to contact you directly or expeditiously, we will receive the information or documents on your behalf and forward them to you.
