OTC Classification Update
Dec. 14, 2021
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has proposed rules which would add an over the counter (OTC) hearing aid classification and make changes to the existing hearing aid rule. IHS will be releasing guidance to chapters and other stakeholders in early December outlining areas of concern and suggestions for public comment. Comments are due January 18, 2022. The THAA Government Relations Committee will be working closely with IHS and will keep you informed of new information and necessary action.
