FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Denver Presley Jr., Office of Information Management, Food and Drug Administration, 1350 Piccard Dr., PI50– 400B, Rockville, MD 20850, 301–796– 3793. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Designated New Animal Drugs for Minor Use and Minor Species; (OMB Control Number 0910–0605)—Extension The Minor Use and Minor Species (MUMS) Animal Health Act of 2004 amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to authorize FDA to establish new regulatory procedures intended to make more medications legally available to veterinarians and animal owners for the treatment of minor animal species as well as uncommon diseases in major animal species. This legislation provides incentives designed to help pharmaceutical companies overcome the financial burdens they face in providing limited-demand animal drugs. These incentives are only available to sponsors whose drugs are ‘‘MUMS-designated’’ by FDA. Minor use drugs are drugs for use in major species (cattle, horses, swine, chickens, turkeys, PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 dogs, and cats) that are needed for diseases that occur in only a small number of animals either because they occur infrequently or in limited geographic areas. Minor species are all animals other than the major species, for example, zoo animals, ornamental fish, parrots, ferrets, and guinea pigs. Some animals of agricultural importance are also minor species. These include animals such as sheep, goats, catfish, and honeybees. Participation in the MUMS program is completely optional for drug sponsors so the associated paperwork only applies to those sponsors who request and are subsequently granted ‘‘MUMS designation.’’ The rule specifies the criteria and procedures for requesting MUMS designation as well as the annual reporting requirements for MUMS designees. Under part 516 ( 21 CFR part 516), § 516.20 provides requirements on the content and format of a request for MUMS-drug designation, § 516.26 provides requirements for amending MUMS-drug designation, § 516.27 provides provisions for change in sponsorship of MUMS-drug designation, § 516.29 provides provisions for termination of MUMS-drug designation, § 516.30 provides requirements for annual reports from sponsor(s) of MUMS-designated drugs, and § 516.36 provides provisions for insufficient quantities of MUMS-designated drugs. Respondents are pharmaceutical companies that sponsor new animal drugs. In the Federal Register of July 20, 2010 (75 FR 42094), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. In response, FDA received E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1
