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. SUMMARY: Data To Support Communications Usability Testing, as Used by the Food and Drug Administration—(OMB Control Number 0910–New) FDA plans to use the data collected under this generic clearance to inform its communications campaigns on a variety of topics related to products that FDA regulates. FDA expects the data to help staff message developers achieve FDA communication objectives. FDA also plans to use the data to help tailor print, broadcast, and electronic media communications in order for them to have powerful and desired impacts on PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 target audiences. The data will not be used for the purposes of making policy or regulatory decisions. The information collected will serve two major purposes. First, as formative research it will provide the critical knowledge needed about target audiences. FDA must explore audiences’ beliefs, perceptions, and decisionmaking processes on specific topics in order to meet the basic objectives of its risk communication campaigns. Such knowledge will provide the needed target audience understanding to design effective communication strategies, messages, and product labels. These communications will aim to improve public understanding of the risks and benefits of using various FDA-regulated products by providing users with a better context in which to place risk information more completely. Second, as pretesting, it will give FDA some information about the potential effectiveness of messages and materials in reaching and successfully communicating with their intended audiences. Testing messages with a sample of the target audience will allow FDA to refine messages while still in the developmental stage. Respondents may be asked to give their reaction to the messages in person or on-line. FDA’s Centers and Offices will use this mechanism to test the usability of messages about FDA-regulated products for consumers, patients, industry representatives, or health care professionals. The data will not be used for the purposes of making policy or regulatory decisions. In the Federal Register of June 10, 2011 (76 FR 34083), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1
