Laboratories certified through that program were accredited to conduct forensic urine drug testing as required by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. As of that date, the certification of those accredited Canadian laboratories will continue under DOT authority. The responsibility for conducting quarterly performance testing plus periodic on-site inspections of those LAPSA-accredited laboratories was transferred to the U.S. HHS, with the HHS’ NLCP contractor continuing to have an active role in the performance testing and laboratory inspection processes. Other Canadian laboratories wishing to be considered for the NLCP may apply directly to the NLCP contractor just as U.S. laboratories do. Upon finding a Canadian laboratory to be qualified, HHS will recommend that DOT certify the laboratory (Federal Register, July 16, 1996) as meeting the PO 00000 Frm 00089 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62843 minimum standards of the Mandatory Guidelines published in the Federal Register on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809). After receiving DOT certification, the laboratory will be included in the monthly list of HHScertified laboratories and participate in the NLCP certification maintenance program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background CDRH has undertaken an initiative to proactively facilitate medical device innovation to address unmet public health needs. As part of this initiative, CDRH with NIH have focused on the development of the artificial pancreas (or Autonomous System) for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. An artificial pancreas is a medical device that links a glucose monitor to an insulin infusion pump where the pump automatically takes action (using a control algorithm) based upon the glucose monitor reading. As control algorithms can vary significantly, there are a variety of artificial pancreas systems currently under development. These systems can range from low glucose suspend, to control-to-range, to control-to-target, to bihormonal control where each device has different purposes or intended uses for controlling blood sugars. In addition, most research in this area uses existing medical device technology, which might limit the performance and evaluation of these systems. Given these device limitations, preliminary research has focused on evaluating these systems in E:\FR\FM\13OCN1.SGM 13OCN1
