SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the rates and payment procedures for fiscal year (FY) 2010 animal drug user fees. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act), as amended by the Animal Drug User Fee Act of 2003 (ADUFA) and the Animal Drug User Fee Amendments of 2008 (ADUFA II), authorizes FDA to collect user fees for certain animal drug applications and supplements, on certain animal drug products, on certain establishments where such products are made, and on certain sponsors of such animal drug applications and/or investigational animal drug submissions. This notice establishes the fee rates for FY 2010.

Please cite OMB Control No. 9000–0094, Debarment and Suspension, in all correspondence. Section 740 of the act (21 U.S.C. 379j12) establishes four different kinds of user fees: (1) Fees for certain types of animal drug applications and supplements, (2) annual fees for certain animal drug products, (3) annual fees for certain establishments where such products are made, and (4) annual fees for certain sponsors of animal drug applications and/or investigational animal drug submissions (21 U.S.C. 379j-12(a)). When certain conditions are met, FDA will waive or reduce fees (21 U.S.C. 379j-12(d)). For FY 2009 through FY 2013, the act establishes aggregate yearly base revenue amounts for each of these fee categories. Base revenue amounts established for years after FY 2009 are subject to adjustment for workload. Fees for applications, establishments, products, and sponsors are to be established each year by FDA so that the revenue for each fee category will approximate the level established in the statute, after the level has been adjusted for workload. For FY 2010, the animal drug user fee rates are: $209,400 for an animal drug application; $145,200 for a supplemental animal drug application for which safety or effectiveness data is required and for an animal drug application subject to the criteria set forth in section 512(d)(4) of the act (21 U.S.C. 360b(d)(4)); $6,185 for an annual ADDRESSES: DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION A.
