Background FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Interim Product Reporting for Human Drug Compounding Outsourcing Facilities Under Section 503B of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.’’ The draft guidance is being issued to implement new provisions added to the FD&C Act in the DQSA. In the newly enacted legislation, Congress created a new statutory category of ‘‘outsourcing facilities’’ that compound drugs. New section 503B of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 353b) allows compounders to register with FDA as outsourcing facilities and, among other things, imposes reporting requirements on these entities if they choose to register. The draft guidance is intended to assist registered outsourcing facilities in implementing drug reporting. The draft guidance describes how an outsourcing facility should provide interim electronic reports while FDA modifies its existing electronic drug registration and listing system to accommodate reporting of product information by registered outsourcing facilities under section 503B of the FD&C Act.

ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or the Agency) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Interim Product Reporting for Human Drug Compounding Outsourcing Facilities Under Section 503B of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.’’ The draft guidance addresses new provisions in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as amended by the Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA), and sets forth an interim electronic submission method for human drug compounders that choose to register as outsourcing facilities (outsourcing facilities).

When such guidance is issued in final form, it will specify the form of reporting that outsourcing facilities are to follow from that point forward. The draft guidance does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, the Agency is making available for comment a draft guidance on registration for human drug compounding outsourcing facilities under section 503B of the FD&C Act. II. Paperwork Reduction Act Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (the PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information that they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register for each proposed collection of information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the collection of information associated with this document, FDA invites comments on the following topics: (1) Whether the proposed information collected is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimated burden of the proposed information collected, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1 72898 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 4, 2013 / Notices ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of information collected on the respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Under the draft guidance, registered outsourcing facilities should submit to FDA a report identifying all drugs compounded by the facility during the previous 6-month period. This product report should be submitted upon initial registration as an outsourcing facility and once during the months of June and December of each year. The report should include the following information for all drugs compounded by the outsourcing facility during the previous 6-month period: • The active ingredient and strength of active ingredient per unit; • The source of the active ingredient (bulk or finished drug); • The National Drug Code (NDC) number of the source drug or bulk active ingredient, if available; • The dosage form and route of administration; • The package description; • The number of individual units produced; and • The NDC number of the final product, if assigned. Product reports should be submitted to FDA electronically using an Excel spreadsheet and via an email attachment, as described in the draft guidance. Outsourcing facilities may request a waiver from the electronic submission process by submitting a written request to FDA explaining why the use of electronic means is not reasonable. Because human drug compounders are not required to register and report as outsourcing facilities, it is difficult to anticipate the number of outsourcing facilities that will participate in the process. We estimate that a total of approximately 20 outsourcing facilities (‘‘number of respondents’’ in table 1, row 1) will submit to FDA at the time of initial registration a report identifying all drugs compounded by the facility. We also estimate that these outsourcing facilities will submit a total of approximately 20 reports for compounded drugs containing the information specified in the draft guidance (‘‘total annual responses’’ in table 1, row 1). We estimate that preparing and submitting this information electronically will take approximately 10 hours per report (‘‘average burden per response’’ in table 1, row 1). We expect to receive no more than one waiver request from this electronic submission process (‘‘total annual responses’’ in table 1, row 2), and each request should take approximately 1 hour to prepare and submit to us (‘‘average burden per response’’ in table 1, row 2). We also estimate that a total of approximately 20 outsourcing facilities (‘‘number of respondents’’ in table 2, row 1) will annually submit to FDA a report identifying all drugs compounded by the facility. We estimate that these outsourcing facilities will submit a total of approximately 20 reports in June and 20 reports in December containing the information specified in the draft guidance (‘‘total annual responses’’ in table 2, row 1). We estimate that preparing and submitting this information electronically will take approximately 10 hours per report (‘‘average burden per response’’ in table 2, row 1). We expect to receive no more than one waiver request from the electronic submission process (‘‘total annual responses’’ in table 2, row 2), and each request should take approximately 1 hour to prepare and submit to us (‘‘average burden per response’’ in table 2, row 2).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry 
entitled ``Interim Product Reporting for Human Drug Compounding 
Outsourcing Facilities Under Section 503B of the Federal Food, Drug, 
and Cosmetic Act.'' The draft guidance is being issued to implement new 
provisions added to the FD&C Act in the DQSA. In the newly enacted 
legislation, Congress created a new statutory category of ``outsourcing 
facilities'' that compound drugs. New section 503B of the FD&C Act (21 
U.S.C. 353b) allows compounders to register with FDA as outsourcing 
facilities and, among other things, imposes reporting requirements on 
these entities if they choose to register. The draft guidance is 
intended to assist registered outsourcing facilities in implementing 
drug reporting. The draft guidance describes how an outsourcing 
facility should provide interim electronic reports while FDA modifies 
its existing electronic drug registration and listing system to 
accommodate reporting of product information by registered outsourcing 
facilities under section 503B of the FD&C Act. When the Agency has 
modified its current electronic submission system to allow outsourcing 
facilities to submit information electronically through a Structured 
Product Labeling file, FDA intends to issue a draft guidance describing 
the updated format for long-term use. When such guidance is issued in 
final form, it will specify the form of reporting that outsourcing 
facilities are to follow from that point forward.
    The draft guidance does not create or confer any rights for or on 
any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An 
alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the 
requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations.
    Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, the Agency is 
making available for comment a draft guidance on registration for human 
drug compounding outsourcing facilities under section 503B of the FD&C 
Act.

II. Paperwork Reduction Act

    Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (the PRA) (44 U.S.C. 
3501-3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information that 
they conduct or sponsor. ``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 
U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or 
requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, 
or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the 
PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal agencies to provide a 
60-day notice in the Federal Register for each proposed collection of 
information before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To 
comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed 
collection of information set forth in this document.
    With respect to the collection of information associated with this 
document, FDA invites comments on the following topics: (1) Whether the 
proposed information collected is necessary for the proper performance 
of FDA's functions, including whether the information will have 
practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA's estimated burden of the 
proposed information collected, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3)

[[Page 72898]]

ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of information collected 
on the respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information 
technology.
    Under the draft guidance, registered outsourcing facilities should 
submit to FDA a report identifying all drugs compounded by the facility 
during the previous 6-month period. This product report should be 
submitted upon initial registration as an outsourcing facility and once 
during the months of June and December of each year. The report should 
include the following information for all drugs compounded by the 
outsourcing facility during the previous 6-month period:
     The active ingredient and strength of active ingredient 
per unit;
     The source of the active ingredient (bulk or finished 
drug);
     The National Drug Code (NDC) number of the source drug or 
bulk active ingredient, if available;
     The dosage form and route of administration;
     The package description;
     The number of individual units produced; and
     The NDC number of the final product, if assigned.
    Product reports should be submitted to FDA electronically using an 
Excel spreadsheet and via an email attachment, as described in the 
draft guidance. Outsourcing facilities may request a waiver from the 
electronic submission process by submitting a written request to FDA 
explaining why the use of electronic means is not reasonable.
    Because human drug compounders are not required to register and 
report as outsourcing facilities, it is difficult to anticipate the 
number of outsourcing facilities that will participate in the process. 
We estimate that a total of approximately 20 outsourcing facilities 
(``number of respondents'' in table 1, row 1) will submit to FDA at the 
time of initial registration a report identifying all drugs compounded 
by the facility. We also estimate that these outsourcing facilities 
will submit a total of approximately 20 reports for compounded drugs 
containing the information specified in the draft guidance (``total 
annual responses'' in table 1, row 1). We estimate that preparing and 
submitting this information electronically will take approximately 10 
hours per report (``average burden per response'' in table 1, row 1). 
We expect to receive no more than one waiver request from this 
electronic submission process (``total annual responses'' in table 1, 
row 2), and each request should take approximately 1 hour to prepare 
and submit to us (``average burden per response'' in table 1, row 2).
    We also estimate that a total of approximately 20 outsourcing 
facilities (``number of respondents'' in table 2, row 1) will annually 
submit to FDA a report identifying all drugs compounded by the 
facility. We estimate that these outsourcing facilities will submit a 
total of approximately 20 reports in June and 20 reports in December 
containing the information specified in the draft guidance (``total 
annual responses'' in table 2, row 1). We estimate that preparing and 
submitting this information electronically will take approximately 10 
hours per report (``average burden per response'' in table 2, row 1). 
We expect to receive no more than one waiver request from the 
electronic submission process (``total annual responses'' in table 2, 
row 2), and each request should take approximately 1 hour to prepare 
and submit to us (``average burden per response'' in table 2, row 2).
