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: Guidance on Reagents for Detection of Specific Novel Influenza A Viruses— (OMB Control Number 0910–0584— Extension In accordance with section 513 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360c), FDA evaluated an application for an in vitro diagnostic device for detection of influenza subtype H5 (Asian lineage), commonly known as avian flu. FDA concluded that this device is properly classified into class II in accordance with section 513(a)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act, because it is a device for which the general controls by themselves are E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 49 / Wednesday, March 13, 2013 / Notices insufficient to provide reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of the device, but there is sufficient information to establish special controls to provide such assurance. The statute permits FDA to establish as special controls many different things, including postmarket surveillance, development and dissemination of guidance recommendations, and ‘‘other appropriate actions as the Secretary deems necessary’’ (section 513(a)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act). This information collection is a measure that FDA determined to be necessary to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness of reagents for detection of specific novel influenza A viruses. FDA issued an order classifying the H5 (Asian lineage) diagnostic device into class II on February 3, 2006, establishing the special controls necessary to provide reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of that device and similar future devices. The new classification was codified in 21 CFR 866.3332, a regulation that describes the new classification for reagents for detection of specific novel influenza A viruses and sets forth the special controls that help to provide a reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of devices classified under that regulation. The regulation refers to the special controls guidance document entitled ‘‘Class II Special Controls Guidance Document: Reagents for Detection of Specific Novel Influenza A Viruses,’’ which provides recommendations for measures to help provide a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness for these reagents. The guidance document recommends that sponsors obtain and analyze postmarket data to ensure the continued reliability of their device in detecting the specific novel influenza A virus that it is intended to detect, particularly given the propensity for influenza viruses to mutate and the potential for changes in disease prevalence over time. As updated sequences for novel influenza A viruses become available from the World Health Organization, National Institutes of Health, and other public health entities, sponsors of reagents for detection of specific novel influenza A viruses will collect this information, compare them with the primer/probe sequences in their devices, and incorporate the result of these analyses into their quality management system, as required by 21 CFR 820.100(a)(1). 15953 These analyses will be evaluated against the device design validation and risk analysis required by 21 CFR 820.30(g), to determine if any design changes may be necessary. FDA estimates that 10 respondents will be affected annually. Each respondent will collect this information twice per year; each response is estimated to take 15 hours. This results in a total data collection burden of 300 hours. The guidance also refers to previously approved information collections found in FDA regulations. The collections of information in 21 CFR part 801 have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0485; the collections of information in 21 CFR part 807 subpart E have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0120; and the collections of information in 21 CFR part 820 have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0073. In the Federal Register of September 25, 2012 (77 FR 58997), 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: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL RECORDKEEPING BURDEN 1 FD&C Act section Number of recordkeepers Number of records per recordkeeper Total annual records Average burden per recordkeeping Total hours 513(g) ................................................................................... 10 2 20 15 300 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

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.

Guidance on Reagents for Detection of Specific Novel Influenza A 
Viruses--(OMB Control Number 0910-0584--Extension

    In accordance with section 513 of the Federal Food, Drug, and 
Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360c), FDA evaluated an 
application for an in vitro diagnostic device for detection of 
influenza subtype H5 (Asian lineage), commonly known as avian flu. FDA 
concluded that this device is properly classified into class II in 
accordance with section 513(a)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act, because it is a 
device for which the general controls by themselves are

[[Page 15953]]

insufficient to provide reasonable assurance of the safety and 
effectiveness of the device, but there is sufficient information to 
establish special controls to provide such assurance. The statute 
permits FDA to establish as special controls many different things, 
including postmarket surveillance, development and dissemination of 
guidance recommendations, and ``other appropriate actions as the 
Secretary deems necessary'' (section 513(a)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act). 
This information collection is a measure that FDA determined to be 
necessary to provide reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness 
of reagents for detection of specific novel influenza A viruses.
    FDA issued an order classifying the H5 (Asian lineage) diagnostic 
device into class II on February 3, 2006, establishing the special 
controls necessary to provide reasonable assurance of the safety and 
effectiveness of that device and similar future devices. The new 
classification was codified in 21 CFR 866.3332, a regulation that 
describes the new classification for reagents for detection of specific 
novel influenza A viruses and sets forth the special controls that help 
to provide a reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of 
devices classified under that regulation. The regulation refers to the 
special controls guidance document entitled ``Class II Special Controls 
Guidance Document: Reagents for Detection of Specific Novel Influenza A 
Viruses,'' which provides recommendations for measures to help provide 
a reasonable assurance of safety and effectiveness for these reagents. 
The guidance document recommends that sponsors obtain and analyze 
postmarket data to ensure the continued reliability of their device in 
detecting the specific novel influenza A virus that it is intended to 
detect, particularly given the propensity for influenza viruses to 
mutate and the potential for changes in disease prevalence over time. 
As updated sequences for novel influenza A viruses become available 
from the World Health Organization, National Institutes of Health, and 
other public health entities, sponsors of reagents for detection of 
specific novel influenza A viruses will collect this information, 
compare them with the primer/probe sequences in their devices, and 
incorporate the result of these analyses into their quality management 
system, as required by 21 CFR 820.100(a)(1). These analyses will be 
evaluated against the device design validation and risk analysis 
required by 21 CFR 820.30(g), to determine if any design changes may be 
necessary.
    FDA estimates that 10 respondents will be affected annually. Each 
respondent will collect this information twice per year; each response 
is estimated to take 15 hours. This results in a total data collection 
burden of 300 hours. The guidance also refers to previously approved 
information collections found in FDA regulations. The collections of 
information in 21 CFR part 801 have been approved under OMB control 
number 0910-0485; the collections of information in 21 CFR part 807 
subpart E have been approved under OMB control number 0910-0120; and 
the collections of information in 21 CFR part 820 have been approved 
under OMB control number 0910-0073.
    In the Federal Register of September 25, 2012 (77 FR 58997), 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:
