Under 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 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 concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing 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 following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information (OMB Control Number 0910–0701)— Extension DATES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Guidance for Industry on Postmarketing Adverse Event Reporting for Medical Products and Dietary Supplements During an Influenza Pandemic; Availability The guidance includes recommendations for planning, notification, and documentation for firms that report postmarketing adverse events. The guidance recommends that each firm’s pandemic influenza continuity of operations plan (COOP) include instructions for reporting adverse events, including a plan for the submission of stored reports that were not submitted within regulatory timeframes. The guidance explains that firms that are unable to fulfill normal adverse event reporting requirements during an influenza pandemic should: (1) Maintain documentation of the conditions that prevent them from meeting normal reporting requirements; (2) notify the appropriate FDA organizational unit responsible for adverse event reporting compliance when the conditions exist and when the reporting process is restored; and (3) maintain records to identify what reports have been stored. E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1 46840 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 154 / Monday, August 11, 2014 / Notices Based on the number of manufacturers that would be covered by the guidance, we estimate that approximately 5,000 firms will add the following to their COOP: (1) Instructions for reporting adverse events; and (2) a plan for submitting stored reports that were not submitted within regulatory timeframes. We estimate that each firm will take approximately 50 hours to prepare the adverse event reporting plan for its COOP. We estimate that approximately 500 firms will be unable to fulfill normal adverse event reporting requirements because of conditions caused by an influenza pandemic and that these firms will notify the appropriate FDA organizational unit responsible for adverse event reporting compliance when the conditions exist. Although we do not anticipate such pandemic influenza conditions to occur every year, for purposes of the PRA, we estimate that each of these firms will notify FDA approximately once each year, and that each notification will take approximately 8 hours to prepare and submit. Concerning the recommendation in the guidance that firms unable to fulfill normal adverse event reporting requirements maintain documentation of the conditions that prevent them from meeting these requirements and also maintain records to identify what adverse event reports have been stored and when the reporting process is restored, we estimate that approximately 500 firms will each need approximately 8 hours to maintain the documentation and that approximately 500 firms will each need approximately 8 hours to maintain the records. Therefore, the total recordkeeping burden that would result from the guidance would be 258,000 hours. The guidance also refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA’s adverse event reporting requirements in 21 CFR 310.305, 314.80, 314.98, 600.80, 606.170, 640.73, 1271.350, and part 803.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under 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 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

Guidance for Industry on Postmarketing Adverse Event Reporting for 
Medical Products and Dietary Supplements During an Influenza Pandemic; 
Availability

(OMB Control Number 0910-0701)--Extension

    The guidance includes recommendations for planning, notification, 
and documentation for firms that report postmarketing adverse events. 
The guidance recommends that each firm's pandemic influenza continuity 
of operations plan (COOP) include instructions for reporting adverse 
events, including a plan for the submission of stored reports that were 
not submitted within regulatory timeframes. The guidance explains that 
firms that are unable to fulfill normal adverse event reporting 
requirements during an influenza pandemic should: (1) Maintain 
documentation of the conditions that prevent them from meeting normal 
reporting requirements; (2) notify the appropriate FDA organizational 
unit responsible for adverse event reporting compliance when the 
conditions exist and when the reporting process is restored; and (3) 
maintain records to identify what reports have been stored.

[[Page 46840]]

    Based on the number of manufacturers that would be covered by the 
guidance, we estimate that approximately 5,000 firms will add the 
following to their COOP: (1) Instructions for reporting adverse events; 
and (2) a plan for submitting stored reports that were not submitted 
within regulatory timeframes. We estimate that each firm will take 
approximately 50 hours to prepare the adverse event reporting plan for 
its COOP.
    We estimate that approximately 500 firms will be unable to fulfill 
normal adverse event reporting requirements because of conditions 
caused by an influenza pandemic and that these firms will notify the 
appropriate FDA organizational unit responsible for adverse event 
reporting compliance when the conditions exist. Although we do not 
anticipate such pandemic influenza conditions to occur every year, for 
purposes of the PRA, we estimate that each of these firms will notify 
FDA approximately once each year, and that each notification will take 
approximately 8 hours to prepare and submit.
    Concerning the recommendation in the guidance that firms unable to 
fulfill normal adverse event reporting requirements maintain 
documentation of the conditions that prevent them from meeting these 
requirements and also maintain records to identify what adverse event 
reports have been stored and when the reporting process is restored, we 
estimate that approximately 500 firms will each need approximately 8 
hours to maintain the documentation and that approximately 500 firms 
will each need approximately 8 hours to maintain the records. 
Therefore, the total recordkeeping burden that would result from the 
guidance would be 258,000 hours.
    The guidance also refers to previously approved collections of 
information found in FDA's adverse event reporting requirements in 21 
CFR 310.305, 314.80, 314.98, 600.80, 606.170, 640.73, 1271.350, and 
part 803. These regulations contain collections of information that are 
subject to review by OMB under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520) and are 
approved under OMB control numbers 0910-0116, 0910-0291, 0910-0230, 
0910-0308, 0910-0437, and 0910-0543. In addition, the guidance also 
refers to adverse event reports for nonprescription human drug products 
marketed without an approved application and dietary supplements 
required under sections 760 and 761 of the Federal Food, Drug, and 
Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 379aa and 379aa-1), which include collections 
of information approved under OMB control numbers 0910-0636 and 0910-
0635.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:
