FDA will use this data to understand more about its customers and to make improvements to its own Web site. FDA will administer this survey to individuals who use the Internet to look for information about medical devices. The survey will consist of three components: A screening tool of 5,000 to identify appropriate respondents, an online survey of 500 customers, and a telephone followup interview with 50 customers. In the Federal Register of April 20, 2005 (70 FR 20573), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions.
