SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In recent years, many important initiatives have been undertaken by regulatory authorities and industry associations to promote the international harmonization of regulatory requirements. FDA has participated in efforts to enhance harmonization and has expressed its commitment to seek scientifically based harmonized technical procedures for the development of pharmaceutical products. One of the goals of harmonization is to identify and then reduce differences in technical requirements for drug development among regulatory agencies in different countries. FDA has actively participated in the International Conference on Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Approval of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use for several years to develop harmonized technical requirements for the approval of human pharmaceutical and biological products among the European Union, Japan, and the United States. The VICH is a parallel initiative for veterinary medicinal products. The VICH is concerned with developing harmonized VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:16 Aug 16, 2010 Jkt 220001 technical requirements for the approval of veterinary medicinal products in the European Union, Japan, and the United States, and includes input from both regulatory and industry representatives. The VICH Steering Committee is composed of member representatives from the European Commission, European Medicines Evaluation Agency, European Federation of Animal Health, Committee on Veterinary Medicinal Products, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Animal Health Institute, the Japanese Veterinary Pharmaceutical Association, the Japanese Association of Veterinary Biologics, and the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries. Four observers are eligible to participate in the VICH Steering Committee: One representative from the government of Australia/New Zealand, one representative from the industry in Australia/New Zealand, one representative from the government of Canada, and one representative from the industry of Canada. The VICH Secretariat, which coordinates the preparation of documentation, is provided by the International Federation for Animal Health (IFAH). An IFAH representative also participates in the VICH Steering Committee meetings. II. Draft Revised Guidance on Residual Solvents in New Veterinary Medicinal Products, Active Substances and Excipients In April 2010, the VICH Steering Committee agreed that a draft revised guidance entitled ‘‘Residual Solvents in New Veterinary Medicinal Products, Active Substances and Excipients (Revision) VICH GL18(R)’’ should be made available for public comment. The draft revised guidance is a revision of the 2001 final guidance on the same topic. The draft revised guidance revises the lower PDE (permissible daily exposure) for N–Methylpyrrolidone being kept in Class 2 (Table 2 of the draft revised guidance) and for Tetrahydrofuran being placed into Class 2 from Class 3 (Table 3 of the draft revised guidance). The draft revised guidance is a product of the Quality Expert Working Group of the VICH. Comments about this draft will be considered by FDA and the VICH Quality Expert Working Group. III. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This draft revised guidance refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). The collections of information in sections II–VI of this document have been approved under OMB Control No. 0910–0032. IV. Significance of Guidance This draft guidance developed under the VICH process, includes mandatory language that does not describe a statutory or regulatory requirement, as permitted by good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115(i)(3)). Mandatory language that does not describe a statutory or regulatory requirement will be revised in the final guidance document. The draft revised VICH guidance (GFI #100) is consistent with the agency’s current thinking on this topic. This guidance does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and will not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative method may be used as long as it satisfies the requirements of applicable statutes and regulations. V. Comments Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) either electronic or written comments regarding this document. It is only necessary to send one set of comments. It is no longer necessary to send two copies of mailed comments. Identify comments with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. VI. Electronic Access Persons with access to the Internet may obtain the draft guidance at either http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/ GuidanceComplianceEnforcement/ GuidanceforIndustry/default.htm or http://www.regulations.gov.

Abstract: Bonds are used to assure that duties, taxes, charges, penalties, and reimbursable expenses owed to the Government are paid; to facilitate the movement of cargo and conveyances through CBP processing; and to provide legal recourse for the Government for noncompliance with laws and regulations. Any person who is required to post a bond to secure a customs transaction usually submits the bond on CBP Form 301, Customs Bond, to CBP. CBP proposes to revise CBP Form 301 in order to accurately reflect the changes that have occurred with regard to CBP bonds. Specifically, the revised Form 301 will capture the new types of bonds which have been authorized by law and regulation, as well as better harmonize this form with current and future automation system requirements. Section II of the CBP Form 301 will be revised to specifically cover continuous activity code bonds for Importer Security Filing, Marine Terminal Operator, and Intellectual Property Rights Samples. Bonds are usually executed by an agent of the surety. The surety company grants authority to the agent via CBP Form 5297, Corporate Surety Power of Attorney. Once this form is filed with CBP, the validity of the authority of the agent executing the bond and the name of the surety can be verified to the surety’s grant. The trade community now has the ability to submit the information on CBP Form 5297 via the internet by using Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) portal technology. ACE surety portal account access allows sureties to add, revoke, and change their surety agent powers of attorney electronically. This ACE portal account access is available to any surety who applies for the functionality at http://www.cbp.gov.
