Title XI, Subtitle B, section 1111 of FDASIA added new sections 575, 576, and 577 to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) regarding medical gases. Among other things, these new sections define the terms ‘‘designated medical gas’’ and ‘‘medical gas’’ and establish the process for the certification of a medical gas as a designated medical gas. (See sections 575(1) and (2) of the FD&C Act.) The sections describe the process for filing a request for certification and describe the information that should be included in the request for certification. (See section 576(a) of the FD&C Act.) Under section 576(a)(3) of the FD&C Act, if a certification is granted for a designated medical gas, the designated medical gas will be deemed to have in effect an approved new human drug application under section 505 (21 U.S.C. 355) or an approved new animal drug application under section 512 (21 U.S.C. 360b) of the FD&C Act for certain specified indications and subject to all applicable postapproval requirements. Under section 576(a)(1) of the FD&C Act, requests for certification may be submitted to FDA beginning 180 days after the enactment of FDASIA, or January 5, 2013. FDA is establishing a public docket for information pertaining to FDA’s implementation of these new medical gas provisions. This action is intended to ensure that information submitted to FDA on the implementation of the medical gas provisions of FDASIA is available to all interested persons in a timely fashion.
