Foreign Exhibitor Guidance

We want our international community to be successful at Medical World Americas! Since entering the U.S. market requires certain procedures and approval to be obtained from the United States Government, please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with requirements and terminology related to bringing your products into the country, as well and marketing and selling it in the USA.

Specifically, you will need to familiarize yourself with terms such as “Establishment Registration”, “501 (k) Premarket Clearance”, “PMA approval” as well as the required action in accordance with the rules and others.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has guidelines on their website that we suggest as your first source of information:
