Product Change Notification (PCN)

Product changes allow APD to improve quality, performance and manufacturing efficiency. As part of our product change process, APD commits to notification of any change that may affect fit, form, or function of the device. This determination is made by APD and is based on data available at the time of the PCN release. This notice will typically be given 3 months in advance of the change. While APD makes every effort to adhere to these requirements, there may be unavoidable circumstances that may result in shorter notification times.

Product changes are thoroughly tested by APD prior to implementation. In situations where form, function, quality, or reliability are unaffected, APD does reserve the right to make the changes without notification.
