Yesterday, we reported that FDA had announced its intentions of reclassifying sunlamp products and requiring labeling changes to include warnings discouraging young people from using them. In today’s Federal Register, which you can read here, FDA made those intentions official when it released its Proposed Order entitled “General and Plastic Surgery Devices: Reclassification of Ultraviolet Lamps for Tanning, Henceforth to be Known as Sunlamp Products.” The interested public, including the regulated industry, may submit written comments to the FDA regarding this Proposed Order on or before August 7, 2013.
