ACTION: Notice. AGENCIES: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) (the Agencies) are announcing the extension of the ‘‘Pilot Program for Parallel Review of Medical Products.’’ SUMMARY: In the Federal Register of November 4, 2013 (78 FR 66010), we published a notice entitled ‘‘Draft Risk Profile on Pathogens and Filth in Spices: Availability.’’ The notice provided a 60- PO 00000 day comment period for comments that can help improve (1) the data and information used; (2) the analytical analyses employed; and (3) the clarity and transparency of the draft risk profile. We have received one request for an extension of the comment period for the notice. The request conveyed concern that the current 60-day comment period is not adequate to develop a response to the notice. We have considered the request and are extending the comment period for the notice for 60 days, until March 3, 2014. We believe that a 60-day extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments, scientific data, and information without significantly delaying the risk profile.
