SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In the Federal Register of November 7, 2008 (73 FR 66294), FDA issued the prior notice final rule implementing section 307 of the Bioterrorism Act. The prior notice final rule requires the submission to FDA of prior notice of food, including animal feed, that is imported or offered for import into the United States. FDA examined the economic implication of this final rule as required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) and determined that it would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In compliance with section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (Public Law 104–121), FDA is making available this SECG that explains the requirements of this regulation. FDA is issuing this SECG as a level 2 guidance consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115(c)(2)). This SECG restates, in simplified format and language, FDA’s current requirements for prior notice of imported food. As guidance, this document is not binding on either FDA or the public. FDA notes, however, that the regulation that serves as the basis for this guidance document establishes requirements for all covered activities. For this reason, FDA strongly recommends that affected parties consult the regulations at 21 CFR part 1, subpart I, in addition to reading this SECG. II. Comments Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments regarding this SECG. 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. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1
