E:\FR\FM\20MRN1.SGM 20MRN1 14368 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 52 / Monday, March 20, 2017 / Notices Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Medical Devices; Reports of Corrections and Removals—21 CFR Part 806 OMB Control Number 0910–0359— Extension FDA is requesting approval for the collection of information regarding reports of corrections and removals required under part 806 (21 CFR part 806), which implements section 519(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360i(g)), as amended by the Food and Drug Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) (Pub. L. 105–115). A description of the information collection requirements are provided as follows: Under § 806.10 (21 CFR 806.10), within 10 working days of initiating any action to correct or remove a device to reduce a risk to health posed by the device or to remedy a violation of the FD&C Act caused by the device which may present a risk to health, device manufacturers or importers must submit a written report to FDA of the correction or removal. Under § 806.20(a), device manufacturers or importers that initiate a correction or removal that is not required to be reported to FDA must keep a record of the correction or removal. The information collected in the reports of corrections and removals will be used by FDA to identify marketed devices that have serious problems and to ensure that defective devices are removed from the market. This will assure that FDA has current and complete information regarding these corrections and removals to determine whether recall action is adequate. Failure to collect this information would prevent FDA from receiving timely information about devices that may have a serious effect on the health of users of the devices. Reports of corrections and removals may be submitted to FDA via mail or using FDA’s Electronic Submission Gateway (ESG). We estimate that approximately 99 percent of submitters will use the ESG. Our estimate of the reporting and recordkeeping burden is based on Agency records and our experience with this program, as well as similar programs that utilize FDA’s ESG. For respondents for who submit corrections and removals using the electronic process, the operating and maintenance costs associated with this information collection are approximately $30 per year to purchase a digital verification certificate (certificate must be valid for 1 to 3 years). This burden may be minimized if the respondent has already purchased a verification certificate for other electronic submissions to FDA. However, FDA is assuming that all respondents who submit corrections and removals using the electronic process will be establishing a new WebTrader account and purchasing a digital verification certificate. We therefore estimate the total operating and maintenance costs to be $30,660 annually (1,022 respondents × $30). FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of respondents Activity (21 CFR part) Electronic process setup 3 .......................

The actual burden hours for setup of the electronic process listed in the reporting burden table are divided by 3 to avoid double counting in the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Consolidated Information System. However, the one-time Average Burden per Response is 9.25 hours, resulting in a total one-time burden of 9,454 hours for the setup of the electronic process. 2 Totals sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES TABLE 2—ESTIMATED ANNUAL RECORDKEEPING BURDEN 1 Number of recordkeepers Activity (21 CFR part) Records of corrections and removals (part 806) ................. 1 There Number of records per recordkeeper 93 Total annual records 1 Average burden per recordkeeping 93 are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal 
Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. 
``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 
1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a 
third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) 
requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal 
Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including 
each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, 
before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with 
this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection 
of information set forth in this document.
    With respect to the following collection of information, FDA 
invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection 
of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents,

appropriate, and other forms of information technology.

Medical Devices; Reports of Corrections and Removals--21 CFR Part 806

OMB Control Number 0910-0359--Extension

    FDA is requesting approval for the collection of information 
regarding reports of corrections and removals required under part 806 
(21 CFR part 806), which implements section 519(g) of the Federal Food, 
Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360i(g)), as amended 
by the Food and Drug Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) (Pub. L. 105-
115). A description of the information collection requirements are 
provided as follows:
    Under Sec.  806.10 (21 CFR 806.10), within 10 working days of 
initiating any action to correct or remove a device to reduce a risk to 
health posed by the device or to remedy a violation of the FD&C Act 
caused by the device which may present a risk to health, device 
manufacturers or importers must submit a written report to FDA of the 
correction or removal.
    Under Sec.  806.20(a), device manufacturers or importers that 
initiate a correction or removal that is not required to be reported to 
FDA must keep a record of the correction or removal.
    The information collected in the reports of corrections and 
removals will be used by FDA to identify marketed devices that have 
serious problems and to ensure that defective devices are removed from 
the market. This will assure that FDA has current and complete 
information regarding these corrections and removals to determine 
whether recall action is adequate. Failure to collect this information 
would prevent FDA from receiving timely information about devices that 
may have a serious effect on the health of users of the devices.
    Reports of corrections and removals may be submitted to FDA via 
mail or using FDA's Electronic Submission Gateway (ESG). We estimate 
that approximately 99 percent of submitters will use the ESG. Our 
estimate of the reporting and recordkeeping burden is based on Agency 
records and our experience with this program, as well as similar 
programs that utilize FDA's ESG.
    For respondents for who submit corrections and removals using the 
electronic process, the operating and maintenance costs associated with 
this information collection are approximately $30 per year to purchase 
a digital verification certificate (certificate must be valid for 1 to 
3 years). This burden may be minimized if the respondent has already 
purchased a verification certificate for other electronic submissions 
to FDA. However, FDA is assuming that all respondents who submit 
corrections and removals using the electronic process will be 
establishing a new WebTrader account and purchasing a digital 
verification certificate. We therefore estimate the total operating and 
maintenance costs to be $30,660 annually (1,022 respondents x $30).
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:

\2\ Totals may not sum due to rounding.
\3\ We estimate that approximately 99 percent of respondents will submit corrections and removals using the electronic process. The actual burden hours
  for setup of the electronic process listed in the reporting burden table are divided by 3 to avoid double counting in the Office of Information and
  Regulatory Affairs Consolidated Information System. However, the one-time Average Burden per Response is 9.25 hours, resulting in a total one-time
  burden of 9,454 hours for the setup of the electronic process.
