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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Biological Products: Reporting of Biological Product Deviations and Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Product Deviations in Manufacturing; Forms FDA 3486 and 3486A—(OMB Control Number 0910– 0458)—Extension Under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) (42 U.S.C. 262), all biological products, including human blood and blood components, offered for sale in interstate commerce must be licensed and meet standards, VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:09 Dec 03, 2013 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72893 including those prescribed in the FDA regulations designed to ensure the continued safety, purity, and potency of such products. In addition, under section 361 of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 264), FDA may issue and enforce regulations necessary to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases between the States or possessions or from foreign countries into the States or possessions. Further, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 351) provides that drugs and devices (including human blood and blood components) are adulterated if they do not conform with current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) assuring that they meet the requirements of the FD&C Act. Establishments manufacturing biological products, including human blood and blood components, must comply with the applicable CGMP regulations (parts 211, 606, and 820 (21 CFR parts 211, 606, and 820)) and current good tissue practice (CGTP) regulations (part 1271 (21 CFR part 1271)) as appropriate. FDA regards biological product deviation (BPD) reporting and human cells, tissues and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/P) deviation reporting to be an essential tool in its directive to protect public health by establishing and maintaining surveillance programs that provide timely and useful information. Section 600.14 (21 CFR 600.14), in brief, requires the manufacturer who holds the biological product license for other than human blood and blood components, and who had control over a distributed product when the deviation occurred, to report to the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) or to the Center for Drugs Evaluation and Research (CDER) as soon as possible, but at a date not to exceed 45 calendar days after acquiring information reasonably suggesting that a reportable event has occurred. Section 606.171, in brief, requires licensed manufacturers of human blood and blood components, including Source Plasma, unlicensed registered blood establishments, and transfusion services, who had control over a distributed product when the deviation occurred, to report to CBER as soon as possible but at a date not to exceed 45 calendar days after acquiring information reasonably suggesting that a reportable event has occurred. Similarly, § 1271.350(b), in brief, requires HCT/P establishments that manufacture non-reproductive HCT/Ps described in § 1271.10 to investigate and report to CBER all HCT/P deviations E:\FR\FM\04DEN1.SGM 04DEN1 72894 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 233 / Wednesday, December 4, 2013 / Notices relating to a distributed HCT/P that relates to the core CGTP requirements, if the deviation occurred in the establishment’s facility or in a facility that performed a manufacturing step for the establishment under contract, agreement or other arrangement, and to report such HCT/P deviations within 45 days of the discovery of the event. Form FDA 3486 is used to submit BPD reports and HCT/P deviation reports. Respondents to this collection of information are (1) Licensed manufacturers of biological products other than human blood and blood components; (2) licensed manufacturers of blood and blood components including Source Plasma; (3) unlicensed registered blood establishments; (4) transfusion services; and (5) establishments that manufacture nonreproductive HCT/Ps regulated solely under section 361 of the PHS Act as described in § 1271.10. The number of respondents and total annual responses are based on the BPD reports and HCT/ P deviation reports FDA received in fiscal year 2012. The number of licensed manufacturers and total annual responses under § 600.14 include the estimates for BPD reports submitted to both CBER and CDER. Based on the information from industry, the estimated average time to complete a deviation report is 2 hours, which includes a minimal one-time burden to create a user account for those reports submitted electronically. The availability of the standardized report form, Form FDA 3486, and the ability to submit this report electronically to CBER (CDER does not currently accept electronic filings) further streamlines the report submission process. CBER developed a Web-based addendum to Form FDA 3486 (Form FDA 3486A) to provide additional information when a BPD report has been reviewed by FDA and evaluated as a possible recall. The additional information requested includes information not contained in the Form FDA 3486 such as: (1) Distribution pattern; (2) method of consignee notification; (3) consignee(s) of products for further manufacture; (4) additional product information; (5) updated product disposition; and (6) industry recall contacts. This information is requested by CBER through email notification to the submitter of the BPD report. This information is used by CBER for recall classification purposes. At this time, Addendum 3486A is being used only for those BPD reports submitted under § 606.171. CBER estimates that 5 percent of the total BPD reports submitted to CBER under § 606.171 would need additional information submitted in the addendum. CBER further estimates that it would take between 10 to 20 minutes to complete the addendum. For calculation purposes, CBER is using 15 minutes. Activities such as investigating, changing standard operating procedures or processes, and followup are currently required under 21 CFR part 211 (approved under OMB control number 0910–0139), part 606 (approved under OMB control number 0910–0116), part 820 (approved under OMB control number 0910–0073), and part 1271 (approved under OMB control number 0910–0543) and, therefore, are not included in the burden calculation for the separate requirement of submitting a deviation report to FDA. In the Federal Register of June 5, 2013 (78 FR 33846), 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 REPORTING BURDEN 1 21 CFR Section Number of respondents Form FDA No. 600.14 ...................................................... 606.171 .................................................... 1271.350(b) .............................................. 1271.350(b) .............................................. 3486 3486 3486 2 3486A Number of responses per respondent 91 1,679 94 84 7.71 32.73 2.66 32.70 Total annual responses 702 54,947 250 2,747 Average burden per response 2.0 2.0 2.0 0.25 Total ..................................................

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.

Biological Products: Reporting of Biological Product Deviations and 
Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Product Deviations 
in Manufacturing; Forms FDA 3486 and 3486A--(OMB Control Number 0910-
0458)--Extension

    Under section 351 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS Act) (42 
U.S.C. 262), all biological products, including human blood and blood 
components, offered for sale in interstate commerce must be licensed 
and meet standards, including those prescribed in the FDA regulations 
designed to ensure the continued safety, purity, and potency of such 
products. In addition, under section 361 of the PHS Act (42 U.S.C. 
264), FDA may issue and enforce regulations necessary to prevent the 
introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases between 
the States or possessions or from foreign countries into the States or 
possessions. Further, the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the 
FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 351) provides that drugs and devices (including 
human blood and blood components) are adulterated if they do not 
conform with current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) assuring that 
they meet the requirements of the FD&C Act. Establishments 
manufacturing biological products, including human blood and blood 
components, must comply with the applicable CGMP regulations (parts 
211, 606, and 820 (21 CFR parts 211, 606, and 820)) and current good 
tissue practice (CGTP) regulations (part 1271 (21 CFR part 1271)) as 
appropriate. FDA regards biological product deviation (BPD) reporting 
and human cells, tissues and cellular and tissue-based products (HCT/P) 
deviation reporting to be an essential tool in its directive to protect 
public health by establishing and maintaining surveillance programs 
that provide timely and useful information.
    Section 600.14 (21 CFR 600.14), in brief, requires the manufacturer 
who holds the biological product license for other than human blood and 
blood components, and who had control over a distributed product when 
the deviation occurred, to report to the Center for Biologics 
Evaluation and Research (CBER) or to the Center for Drugs Evaluation 
and Research (CDER) as soon as possible, but at a date not to exceed 45 
calendar days after acquiring information reasonably suggesting that a 
reportable event has occurred. Section 606.171, in brief, requires 
licensed manufacturers of human blood and blood components, including 
Source Plasma, unlicensed registered blood establishments, and 
transfusion services, who had control over a distributed product when 
the deviation occurred, to report to CBER as soon as possible but at a 
date not to exceed 45 calendar days after acquiring information 
reasonably suggesting that a reportable event has occurred. Similarly, 
Sec.  1271.350(b), in brief, requires HCT/P establishments that 
manufacture non-reproductive HCT/Ps described in Sec.  1271.10 to 
investigate and report to CBER all HCT/P deviations

[[Page 72894]]

relating to a distributed HCT/P that relates to the core CGTP 
requirements, if the deviation occurred in the establishment's facility 
or in a facility that performed a manufacturing step for the 
establishment under contract, agreement or other arrangement, and to 
report such HCT/P deviations within 45 days of the discovery of the 
event. Form FDA 3486 is used to submit BPD reports and HCT/P deviation 
reports.
    Respondents to this collection of information are (1) Licensed 
manufacturers of biological products other than human blood and blood 
components; (2) licensed manufacturers of blood and blood components 
including Source Plasma; (3) unlicensed registered blood 
establishments; (4) transfusion services; and (5) establishments that 
manufacture non-reproductive HCT/Ps regulated solely under section 361 
of the PHS Act as described in Sec.  1271.10. The number of respondents 
and total annual responses are based on the BPD reports and HCT/P 
deviation reports FDA received in fiscal year 2012. The number of 
licensed manufacturers and total annual responses under Sec.  600.14 
include the estimates for BPD reports submitted to both CBER and CDER. 
Based on the information from industry, the estimated average time to 
complete a deviation report is 2 hours, which includes a minimal one-
time burden to create a user account for those reports submitted 
electronically. The availability of the standardized report form, Form 
FDA 3486, and the ability to submit this report electronically to CBER 
(CDER does not currently accept electronic filings) further streamlines 
the report submission process.
    CBER developed a Web-based addendum to Form FDA 3486 (Form FDA 
3486A) to provide additional information when a BPD report has been 
reviewed by FDA and evaluated as a possible recall. The additional 
information requested includes information not contained in the Form 
FDA 3486 such as: (1) Distribution pattern; (2) method of consignee 
notification; (3) consignee(s) of products for further manufacture; (4) 
additional product information; (5) updated product disposition; and 
(6) industry recall contacts. This information is requested by CBER 
through email notification to the submitter of the BPD report. This 
information is used by CBER for recall classification purposes. At this 
time, Addendum 3486A is being used only for those BPD reports submitted 
under Sec.  606.171. CBER estimates that 5 percent of the total BPD 
reports submitted to CBER under Sec.  606.171 would need additional 
information submitted in the addendum. CBER further estimates that it 
would take between 10 to 20 minutes to complete the addendum. For 
calculation purposes, CBER is using 15 minutes.
    Activities such as investigating, changing standard operating 
procedures or processes, and followup are currently required under 21 
CFR part 211 (approved under OMB control number 0910-0139), part 606 
(approved under OMB control number 0910-0116), part 820 (approved under 
OMB control number 0910-0073), and part 1271 (approved under OMB 
control number 0910-0543) and, therefore, are not included in the 
burden calculation for the separate requirement of submitting a 
deviation report to FDA.
    In the Federal Register of June 5, 2013 (78 FR 33846), 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
