SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is updating its administrative regulations in 21 CFR part 10 to include an electronic method for citizen petition submissions and to remove references only to written documents. The Agency still allows for non-electronic submissions, however, electronic submissions of a citizen petition to a specific electronic docket presents a simpler and straightforward approach. FDA has created a single docket on http://www.regulations.gov, the U.S. Government’s consolidated docket Web site for Federal Agencies, for the initial electronic submission of all citizen petitions. The FDA Electronic Method for Submission of Citizen Petitions Docket, Docket No. FDA 2013–S–0610, allows the petitioner to create an electronic submission through http:// www.regulations.gov and provides an alternative to the current system of submission for citizen petitions. Electronic submissions through http:// www.regulations.gov will provide the submitter with an immediate record of the time of submission. FDA’s Division of Dockets Management (DDM) (http:// www.fda.gov/RegulatoryInformation/ Dockets/default.htm) will continue to inform the submitter of formal filing; however, tracking will be more easily accomplished through electronic submission. DDM will receive the electronically submitted citizen petition through the Federal Dockets Management System, the Agency component of http:// www.regulations.gov. Subsequently, DDM will review the electronic submission and when it accepts the citizen petition for filing, DDM will assign a docket number to that petition, different from the FDA electronic submission docket number. This unique docket number from DDM identifies the docket for that particular citizen petition for all future filings and submissions related only to that citizen petition. Subsequent submissions associated with that citizen petition will refer to the assigned unique docket number. The advantage to this change is that it ensures efficiency and ease in communication, quicker interaction between citizen petitioners and FDA, E:\FR\FM\19DER1.SGM 19DER1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 244 / Thursday, December 19, 2013 / Rules and Regulations and easier access to FDA to seek input through the citizen petition process.

Collins, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202–366–9826. The Union Pacific Railroad requested a temporary deviation for the Clinton Railroad Drawbridge, across the Upper Mississippi River, mile 518.0, at Clinton, Iowa to open on signal if at least 24 hours advance notice is given from 12:01 a.m., December 15, 2013 to 9 a.m., March 15, 2014 to allow the bridge owner time for preventive maintenance. The Clinton Railroad Drawbridge will resume its normal operating schedule at 9 a.m., March 4, 2014 to align with the opening of Locks on the Upper Mississippi River. Winter conditions on the Upper Mississippi River coupled with the closure of Army Corps of Engineer’s Lock No. 16 (Mile 457.2 UMR), Lock No. 17 (Mile 437.1 UMR), and Lock No. 18 (Mile 410.5 UMR) until 11:00 a.m., March 4, 2014 will preclude any significant navigation demands for the drawspan opening. The Clinton Railroad Drawbridge currently operates in accordance with 33 CFR 117.5, which states the general requirement that drawbridge shall open promptly and fully for the passage of vessels when a request to open is given in accordance with the subpart. There are no alternate routes for vessels transiting this section of the Upper Mississippi River. The Clinton Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation position, provides a vertical clearance of 18.7 feet above normal pool. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft. The drawbridge will open if at least 24 hours advance notice is given. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received. In accordance with 33 CFR 117.35(e), the drawbridge must return to its regular operating schedule immediately at the end of the effective period of this temporary deviation. This deviation from the operating regulations is authorized under 33 CFR 117.35. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: December 5, 2013. Eric A. Washburn, Bridge Administrator, Western Rivers.

The deviation is necessary to allow BNSF to perform maintenance and upgrade items to this vertical lift bridge in support of Positive Train Control requirements per the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008. This will require locking the bridge in the closed position and locking out the power to the drive system while the work is conducted. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed position for 45 days during the maintenance and upgrade work.

Citizen Petition Submission; Technical Amendment

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is modernizing its 
administrative regulations regarding submission of citizen petitions to 
explicitly provide for electronic submission. The current regulation 
does not recognize electronic methods for submitting citizen petitions; 
thus, this action will enable efficiency and ease in the filing of 
citizen petitions.

DATES: This final rule is effective December 19, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lisa M. Helmanis, Office of Policy, 
Regulations Policy Management Staff, Food and Drug Administration, 
10903 New Hampshire Ave., Silver Spring, MD 20993, 301-796-9135.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is updating its administrative 
regulations in 21 CFR part 10 to include an electronic method for 
citizen petition submissions and to remove references only to written 
documents. The Agency still allows for non-electronic submissions, 
however, electronic submissions of a citizen petition to a specific 
electronic docket presents a simpler and straightforward approach. FDA 
has created a single docket on http://www.regulations.gov, the U.S. 
Government's consolidated docket Web site for Federal Agencies, for the 
initial electronic submission of all citizen petitions. The FDA 
Electronic Method for Submission of Citizen Petitions Docket, Docket 
No. FDA 2013-S-0610, allows the petitioner to create an electronic 
submission through http://www.regulations.gov and provides an 
alternative to the current system of submission for citizen petitions. 
Electronic submissions through http://www.regulations.gov will provide 
the submitter with an immediate record of the time of submission. FDA's 
Division of Dockets Management (DDM) (http://www.fda.gov/RegulatoryInformation/Dockets/default.htm) will continue to inform the 
submitter of formal filing; however, tracking will be more easily 
accomplished through electronic submission.
    DDM will receive the electronically submitted citizen petition 
through the Federal Dockets Management System, the Agency component of 
http://www.regulations.gov. Subsequently, DDM will review the 
electronic submission and when it accepts the citizen petition for 
filing, DDM will assign a docket number to that petition, different 
from the FDA electronic submission docket number. This unique docket 
number from DDM identifies the docket for that particular citizen 
petition for all future filings and submissions related only to that 
citizen petition. Subsequent submissions associated with that citizen 
petition will refer to the assigned unique docket number. The advantage 
to this change is that it ensures efficiency and ease in communication, 
quicker interaction between citizen petitioners and FDA,

[[Page 76749]]

and easier access to FDA to seek input through the citizen petition 
process.
    Publication of this document constitutes final action under the 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that 
good cause exists to dispense with prior notice and public comment 
under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) since such notice and comment are 
unnecessary because this amendment to the regulation provides only 
technical and grammatical corrections, modernizes the administrative 
process to add a simple and electronic method, ensures clarity in the 
Agency's regulations, and updates obsolete information.
