The FDA describes the Product Code Classification Database in the following way:
"The Product Classification Database contains medical device names and associated information developed by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) in support of its mission. This database contains device names and their associated product codes. The name and product code identify the generic category of a device for FDA. The Product Code assigned to a device is based upon the medical device product classification designated under 21 CFR Parts 862-892."
The documentation describes the data fields.
The FDA offers many helpful, additional resources such as the following:
The complete FDA Product Classification database is offered here in SAS, Stata, and CSV formats to make the whole database a bit easier to use.
Limited historic files are available in the CCYY/CCYYMMDD folders where CCYY is the year and CCYYMMDD is the day.
