ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that a proposed collection of information has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and clearance under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Fax written comments on the collection of information by September 28, 2006. ADDRESSES: To ensure that comments on the information collection are received, OMB recommends that written comments be faxed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB, Attn: FDA Desk Officer, FAX: 202–395–6974. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonna Capezzuto, Office of Management Programs (HFA–250), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, 301–827–4659. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. User Fee Cover Sheet; Form FDA 3397—(OMB Control Number 0910– 0297)—Extension Under sections 735 and 736 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 379g and 379h), the Prescription Drug User Fee Act of 1992 (PDUFA) (Public Law 102–571), as amended by the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (Public Law 105–115), and the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, which includes the Prescription Drug User Fee Amendments of 2002 (Public Law 107–188), FDA has the authority to assess and collect user fees for certain drug and biologics license applications and supplements. Under this authority, pharmaceutical companies pay a fee for certain new human drug applications, biologics license applications, or supplements submitted to FDA for review. Because the submission of user fees concurrently with applications and supplements is required, review of an application by FDA cannot begin until the fee is submitted. Form FDA 3397, the user fee cover sheet, is designed to provide the minimum necessary information to determine whether a fee is required for review of an application, to determine the amount of the fee required, and to account for and track user fees. The form provides a crossreference of the fee submitted for an application with the actual application by using a unique number tracking 51195 system. The information collected is used by FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) to initiate the administrative screening of new drug applications, biologics license applications, and supplemental applications. Respondents to this collection of information are new drug and biologics manufacturers. Based on FDA’s database system for fiscal year (FY) 2005, there are an estimated 243 manufacturers of products subject to PDUFA. However, not all manufacturers will have any submissions, and some may have multiple submissions in a given year. The total number of annual responses is based on the number of submissions received by FDA in FY 2005. CDER estimates 3,085 annual responses that include the following submissions: 101 new drug applications; 3 biologics license applications; 1,915 manufacturing supplements; 921 labeling supplements; and 145 efficacy supplements. CBER estimates 676 annual responses that include the following submissions: 6 biologics license applications, 614 manufacturing supplements, 46 labeling supplements, and 10 efficacy supplements. Based on previous estimates, the rate of submissions is not expected to change significantly in the next few years. The estimated hours per response are based on past FDA experience with the various submissions, and range from 5 to 30 minutes. The hours per response are based on the average of these estimates. In the Federal Register of May 25, 2006 (71 FR 30144), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1.—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN1 Form No. of Respondents FDA 3397 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 1There Annual Frequency per Response 243 Total Annual Responses 15.48 Hours per Respondent 3,761 0.30 are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.
