Thus, a manufacturer who intends to market a device of this generic type must (1) conform to the general controls of the Federal Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), including the premarket notification requirements described in 21 CFR part 807 Subpart E, (2) address the special controls associated with implanted blood access devices for hemodialysis codified in the Code of Federal Regulations § 876.5540(b)(1), and (b)(3) obtain a substantial equivalence determination from FDA prior to marketing the device. II. Significance of Guidance This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115).

compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by specified

300aa-10 et seq., provides that those seeking compensation are to file 
a petition with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to serve a copy of 
the petition on the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who is 
named as the respondent in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated 
her responsibility under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by 
statute to appoint special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings 
as appropriate, and make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and 
amount of, compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in 
the Vaccine Injury Table (the Table) set forth at Section 2114 of the 
PHS Act or as set forth at 42 CFR 100.3, as applicable. This Table 
lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions which may lead 
to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence 
of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant 
aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may also be 
awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for conditions that 
are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but 
only if the petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of 
the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2),

the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list reflects such 
redaction.

afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:
    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance of 
the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or death

administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:
