Rx, Medical Oversight & Compliance An AED is classified as a “medical device” regulated by the FDA and a physician’s prescription is required in order to purchase most AEDs. In addition, each state (and some countries) has a set of different regulations and laws governing the on-going placement and use of AEDs in public places including businesses. In most regions, these requirements state that you need a Medical Director (from a licensed physician) to oversee your AED program and provide consultation on protocols, training, maintenance and local compliance issues.
Your minimum requirements include: Authorization of your AED program from your medical director and complying with local AED regulations. This typically involves keeping the physician’s authorization current, registering your AEDs where they are deployed, documenting your training and demonstrating you have a maintenance program in place.
