SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction FDA is announcing its intention to hold a public meeting on PDUFA. The authority for PDUFA expires in September 2012. Without new legislation, FDA will no longer be able to collect user fees to fund the human drug review process. Section 736B(d)(2) (21 U.S.C. 379h-2(d)(2)) of the FD&C Act requires that before FDA begins negotiations with the regulated industry on PDUFA reauthorization, we do the PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12555 following: (1) Publish a notice in the Federal Register requesting public input on the reauthorization, (2) hold a public meeting at which the public may present its views on the reauthorization, (3) provide a period of 30 days after the public meeting to obtain written comments from the public suggesting changes, and (4) publish the comments on the FDA Web site. This notice, the public meeting, the 30 day comment period after the meeting, and the posting of the comments on the FDA Web site will satisfy these requirements. The purpose of the meeting is to hear stakeholder views on PDUFA as we consider the features to propose in the next PDUFA program. FDA is interested in responses to the following two general questions and welcomes any other pertinent information stakeholders would like to share: 1. What is your assessment of the overall performance of the PDUFA IV program thus far? 2. What aspects of PDUFA should be retained, changed, or discontinued to further strengthen and improve the program? The following information is provided to help potential meeting participants better understand the history and evolution of the PDUFA program and its current status. II. What is PDUFA? What Does It Do? PDUFA is a law that authorizes FDA to collect fees from drug companies that submit marketing applications for certain human drug and biological products. The original PDUFA (PDUFA I) was enacted in 1992 (as the Prescription Drug User Fee Act, Public Law 102–571) and had a 5-year life. In 1997, as PDUFA I expired, Congress passed the FDA Modernization Act (FDAMA, Public Law 105–115) which included an extension of PDUFA (PDUFA II) for an additional 5 years. In 2002, Congress extended PDUFA again through fiscal year 2007 (PDUFA III) through the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act (Public Law 107–188). Most recently, Title I of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA, Public Law 110–85) reauthorized PDUFA through fiscal year 2012 (PDUFA IV). PDUFA’s intent has been to provide additional revenues so that FDA could hire more staff, improve systems, and establish a better managed human drug review process to make important therapies available to patients sooner without compromising review quality or approval standards. In conjunction with PDUFA, FDA agrees to certain performance goals. These goals apply to E:\FR\FM\16MRN1.SGM 16MRN1
