How often is openFDA 510k database updated? Through the FDA website I see a new batch of 510k clearances from June 2016. However, openFDA has not been updated since May.

1 Answer 1


The dataset was updated on March 6, 2017. The updates occur from time to time without a planned update schedule. The latest updates for the 510K and other datasets are posted here.

  • I'm one of the many folks working on Open FDA (open.fda.gov/about). Unfortunately, I'm unable to answer "how often" at this point. Sorry about the inconvenience. Commented Aug 19, 2016 at 14:26
  • Do you know when the previous update was? That would give at least some indication on the historic update interval.
