SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with RULES I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance for industry and investigators entitled ‘‘Enforcement of Safety Reporting Requirements for INDs and BA/BE Studies.’’ This guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices (GGPs) regulation (§ 10.115 (21 CFR 10.115)). The guidance provides that the Agency intends to grant a 6-month period of enforcement discretion relating to the new reporting requirements (described in this document) that became effective on March 28, 2011. Accordingly, this guidance is being implemented without prior public comment because the Agency has determined that prior public participation is not feasible or appropriate (§ 10.115(g)(2)). The Agency made this determination because the guidance deals with a short-term and highly time-sensitive issue. Although this guidance document is immediately in effect, it remains subject to comment in accordance with the Agency’s GGPs regulation. On September 29, 2010, FDA published a final rule ‘‘Investigational New Drug Safety Reporting Requirements for Human Drug and Biological Products and Safety Reporting Requirements for Bioavailability and Bioequivalence Studies in Humans’’ (75 FR 59935) and issued related draft guidance ‘‘Safety Reporting Requirements for INDs and BA/BE Studies’’ (75 FR 60129, Docket No. FDA–2010–D–0482). The final rule amended the investigational new drug safety reporting requirements under part 312 (21 CFR part 312) and added safety reporting requirements for persons conducting bioavailability and bioequivalence studies under part 320 (21 CFR part 320). The effective date for the final rule was March 28, 2011. In comments to the docket, and in other communications to the Agency placed in the docket, stakeholders have requested an extension to the effective VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:11 Jun 06, 2011 Jkt 223001 date of the final rule because of the need for significant internal process changes in order to meet the new requirements. Specifically, the comments indicated that sponsors needed additional time to implement changes to their internal procedures to comply with the new reporting requirements. The Agency acknowledges these concerns and intends to exercise enforcement discretion regarding the reporting requirements in the final rule until September 28, 2011. During this period of time, FDA does not intend to take enforcement action if sponsors and investigators report in compliance with the reporting requirements under §§ 312.32, 312.64, and 320.31 that were in effect prior to March 28, 2011. The guidance represents the Agency’s current thinking on enforcement of safety reporting requirements for investigational new drug applications and bioavailability/bioequivalence studies. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. II.
