FIELD SAFETY NOTICES (FSN)

A ‘field safety notice’ (FSN) is an important communication about the safety of a medical device that is sent to customers by a device manufacturer, or their representative. FSNs tell you what you need to do to reduce the specified risks of using the medical device. The actions are referred to as ‘field safety corrective actions’ (FSCAs). If you receive a field safety notice from a manufacturer, always act on it.
Select any of the options below to go to a dedicated FSN page.
