A Type A medicated article is a feed product containing a concentrated drug diluted with a feed carrier substance. A Type A medicated article is intended solely for use in the manufacture of another Type A medicated article or a Type B or Type C medicated feed. Medicated feeds are administered to animals for the prevention, cure, mitigation, or treatment of disease or for growth promotion and feed efficiency. Statutory requirements for cGMPs for Type A medicated articles have been codified in part 226 (21 CFR part 226). Type A medicated articles which are not manufactured in accordance with these regulations are considered adulterated under section 501(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 351(a)(2)(B). Under part 226, a manufacturer is required to establish, maintain, and retain records for Type A medicated articles, including records to document procedures required under the manufacturing process to assure that proper quality control is maintained. Such records would, for example, contain information concerning receipt and inventory of drug components, batch production, laboratory assay results (i.e., batch and stability testing), and product distribution. This information is needed so that FDA can monitor drug usage and possible misformulation of Type A medicated articles. The information could also prove useful to FDA in investigating product defects when a drug is recalled. In addition, FDA will use the cGMP criteria in part 226 to determine whether or not the systems used by manufacturers of Type A medicated articles are adequate to assure that their medicated articles meet the requirements of the FD&C Act as to safety and also meet the article’s claimed identity, strength, quality, and purity, as required by section 501(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act. The respondents for Type A medicated articles are pharmaceutical firms that manufacture both human and veterinary drugs, those firms that produce only veterinary drugs, and commercial feed mills.

Current Good Manufacturing Practice Regulations for Type A Medicated 
Articles--21 CFR Part 226 (OMB Control Number 0910-0154)--Extension

    Under section 501 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the 
FD&C Act), FDA has the statutory authority to issue current good 
manufacturing practice (cGMP) regulations for drugs, including Type A 
medicated articles. A Type A medicated article is a feed product 
containing a concentrated drug diluted with a feed carrier substance. A 
Type A medicated article is intended solely for use in the manufacture 
of another Type A medicated article or a Type B or Type C medicated 
feed. Medicated feeds are administered to animals for the prevention, 
cure, mitigation, or treatment of disease or for growth promotion and 
feed efficiency.
    Statutory requirements for cGMPs for Type A medicated articles have 
been codified in part 226 (21 CFR part 226). Type A medicated articles 
which are not manufactured in accordance with these regulations are 
considered adulterated under section 501(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act (21 
U.S.C. 351(a)(2)(B). Under part 226, a manufacturer is required to 
establish, maintain, and retain records for Type A medicated articles, 
including records to document procedures required under the 
manufacturing process to assure that proper quality control is 
maintained. Such records would, for example, contain information 
concerning receipt and inventory of drug components, batch production, 
laboratory assay results (i.e., batch and stability testing), and 
product distribution.
    This information is needed so that FDA can monitor drug usage and 
possible misformulation of Type A medicated articles. The information 
could also prove useful to FDA in investigating product defects when a 
drug is recalled. In addition, FDA will use the cGMP criteria in part 
226 to determine whether or not the systems used by manufacturers of 
Type A medicated articles are adequate to assure that their medicated 
articles meet the requirements of the FD&C Act as to safety and also 
meet the article's claimed identity, strength, quality, and purity, as 
required by section 501(a)(2)(B) of the FD&C Act. The respondents for 
Type A medicated articles are pharmaceutical firms that manufacture 
both human and veterinary drugs, those firms that produce only 
veterinary drugs, and commercial feed mills.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:
