Background BILLING CODE 4160–01–P In the Federal Register of January 7, 2013 (78 FR 951), FDA published a notice of public workshop with a 90-day comment period to request comments on all aspects of the public workshop, including topics outlined in section II of that document (78 FR 951 at 952). The agency has received a request for an extension of the comment period until May 30, 2013. The request conveyed concern that the current comment period does not allow sufficient time to develop a meaningful or thoughtful response that allows for consideration of presentations by FDA and other stakeholders at the public workshop on April 29 and 30, 2013. FDA has considered the request and is extending the comment period for the notice of public workshop until May 17, 2013. The agency believes that the extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments without significantly delaying consideration of these important issues.
