DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Food and Drug Administration [Docket No. 2005D–0490] Guidance for Industry: Questions and Answers Regarding Food Allergens, Including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (Edition 2); Availability AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS. Notice of availability of guidance. ACTION: bjneal on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a revised guidance document entitled ‘‘Guidance for Industry: Questions and Answers Regarding Food Allergens, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (Edition 2).’’ The guidance explains, using a question and answer format, FDA’s current thinking on a number of issues related to the regulation of food allergens, including implementation of the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA). DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on the guidance document at any time. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments on the guidance to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Submit electronic comments to http:// www.fda.gov/dockets/ecomments. See the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for electronic access to the guidance document. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rhonda R. Kane, Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (HFS–820), Food and Drug Administration, 5100 Paint Branch Pkwy., College Park, MD 20740, 301–436–2371, or e-mail: rhonda.kane@fda.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The FALCPA (Public Law 108–282) amends the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and requires that the label of a food product that is or contains an ingredient that bears or contains a ‘‘major food allergen’’ declare the presence of the allergen as specified by FALCPA. FALCPA defines a ‘‘major food allergen’’ as one of eight foods or a food ingredient that contains protein derived from one of those foods. A food ingredient may be exempt from FALCPA’s labeling requirements if it VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:54 Dec 23, 2005 Jkt 208001 II. Discussion FDA has received numerous questions about the application of FALCPA’s requirements to food products. To explain FALCPA’s requirements as well as FDA’s current thinking on several issues relating to the regulation of food allergens, on October 5, 2005, FDA posted the first edition of a guidance entitled ‘‘Guidance for Industry: Questions and Answers Regarding Food Allergens, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004’’ on the agency’s Web site at http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/ alrguid.html. The guidance that is the subject of this notice, ‘‘Guidance for Industry: Questions and Answers Regarding Food Allergens, including the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (Edition 2)’’ is a revision of the guidance posted on October 5, 2005, and responds to additional questions about FALCPA and food allergens. The revised guidance is intended to share with industry FDA’s current thinking on the additional questions presented in the guidance. Given the nature of the revisions to the guidance, FDA is issuing the guidance as a level 1 guidance. Consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (§ 10.115 (21 CFR 10.115)), the agency will accept comments, but it is implementing the guidance document immediately, in accordance with § 10.115(g)(2), because the agency has determined that prior public participation is not feasible or appropriate. As noted, FALPCA’s labeling requirements apply to products labeled on or after January 1, 2006. Clarifying FDA’s current thinking on the additional issues presented by FALCPA’s implementation will help facilitate the food industry’s compliance with FALCPA’s requirements. FDA expects to continue to receive a large number of questions regarding the implementation of FALCPA and the regulation of food allergens generally. The agency intends to respond to these inquires under § 10.115 as promptly as possible, using a question and answer format. The agency believes that, at the present time, it is reasonable to maintain all responses to questions concerning food allergens and FALCPA in a single document that is periodically updated as the agency receives and responds to additional questions. The following four indicators will be PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76463 employed to help users of the guidance identify revisions: (1) The guidance will be identified as a revision of a previously issued document, (2) the revision date of the guidance will appear on its cover, (3) the edition number of the guidance will be included in its title, and (4) questions and answers that have been added to the original guidance will be identified as such in the body of the guidance. This guidance represents the agency’s current thinking on issues related to FALCPA and food allergens generally that are presented in the guidance. The guidance does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. III. Comments Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments regarding this guidance at any time. Submit a single copy of electronic comments or two paper copies of any mailed comments, except that individuals may submit one paper copy. Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. The guidance and received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. V. Electronic Access Persons with access to the Internet may obtain the guidance document at http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/ alrguid2.html.

ACTION: Notice of availability (NOA) of record of decision. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces the availability of the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the West Mine Area, Freedom Mine Coal Lease Application. The EIS analyzed the potential impacts of leasing and mining federal coal on lands in Mercer County, North Dakota.

Alternative C incorporates a preservation component for Native American cultural resources by bypassing approximately 237 acres and an estimated 4 million tons of federal coal which would have been leased under Alternative A (the Proposed Action Alternative). Alternative C also allows for the recovery of federal coal which would be bypassed if not leased under Alternative B (the No Action Alternative). The BLM received 26 written comments on the draft EIS. These comments and BLM’s responses to them were included in the final EIS. All of the comments and the transcript of the formal hearing are on file in the Dickinson, ND and Billings, MT Offices of the BLM. BLM also received 13 written comments on the final EIS. All of the comments received during the process were considered in the preparation of the EIS and/or the Record of Decision. BLM Notices of Availability for the draft EIS and for the final EIS were published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2004 (Volume 69, Number 84), and August 26, 2005 (Volume 70, Number 165).
