ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Testing of Glycerin for Diethylene Glycol.’’ This guidance provides recommendations on testing that will help pharmaceutical manufacturers, repackers, and other suppliers of glycerin, and pharmacists who engage in drug compounding, avoid the use of glycerin that is contaminated with diethylene glycol (DEG) and prevent incidents of DEG poisoning. DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on the guidance by July 31, 2007. General comments on agency PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 guidance documents are welcome at any time. Submit written requests for single copies of the guidance to the Division of Drug Information (HFD– 240), Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857.

ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Monica Caphart, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (HFD–320), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857,301– 827–9047. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Testing of Glycerin for Diethylene Glycol.’’ This guidance explains that the agency recommends that certain analytical testing procedures be performed on glycerin to avoid the use of DEG-contaminated product. Specifically, the agency is recommending that all lots of glycerin received by a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility undergo identity testing that includes a test for DEG content. DEG contamination of glycerin can be detected by using specific analytical test procedures described in the United States Pharmacopeia monograph for glycerin, which quantifies the amount of DEG present at a detection level of 0.1 percent, as recommended by the interagency Diethylene Glycol Contamination Prevention Workshop of 1997. Repackers, pharmacy compounders, and others who distribute and prepare glycerin for use in drug products should test glycerin that is used, sold for use, or intended for use in drug products. This recommendation also applies to bulk or repackaged glycerin intended as an excipient or other component for a drug. In addition, pharmacies that purchase glycerin for use in compounding drug products should either test the glycerin or ensure that such testing was properly done by a reliable supplier.
