SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: List of Subjects 21 CFR Part 862 [FR Doc. 2014–20022 Filed 8–22–14; 8:45 am] Medical devices. 21 CFR Part 864 Hemoglobin A1c test system. (a) Identification. A hemoglobin A1c test system is a device used to measure the percentage concentration of hemoglobin A1c in blood. Measurement of hemoglobin A1c is used as an aid in the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and as an aid in the identification of patients at risk for developing diabetes mellitus. (b) Classification. Class II (special controls). The special controls for this device are: (1) The device must have initial and annual standardization verification by a certifying glycohemoglobin standardization organization deemed acceptable by FDA. (2) The premarket notification submission must include performance testing to evaluate precision, accuracy, linearity, and interference, including the following: (i) Performance testing of device precision must, at a minimum, use VerDate Mar<15>2010 blood samples with concentrations near 5.0 percent, 6.5 percent, 8.0 percent, and 12 percent hemoglobin A1c. This testing must evaluate precision over a minimum of 20 days using at least three lots of the device and three instruments, as applicable. (ii) Performance testing of device accuracy must include a minimum of 120 blood samples that span the measuring interval of the device and compare results of the new device to results of a standardized test method. Results must demonstrate little or no bias versus the standardized method. (iii) Total error of the new device must be evaluated using single measurements by the new device compared to results of the standardized test method, and this evaluation must demonstrate a total error less than or equal to 6 percent. (iv) Performance testing must demonstrate that there is little to no interference from common hemoglobin variants, including Hemoglobin C, Hemoglobin D, Hemoglobin E, Hemoglobin A2, and Hemoglobin S. (3) When assay interference from Hemoglobin F or interference with other hemoglobin variants with low frequency in the population is observed, a warning statement must be placed in a black box and must appear in all labeling material for these devices describing the interference and any affected populations. 50551 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Blood, Medical devices, Packaging and containers. 21 CFR Part 866 Food and Drug Administration 21 CFR Parts 862, 864, 866, and 872 Biologics, Laboratories, Medical devices.

ACTION: Notice of deviation from drawbridge regulations. The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs the Southern Railroad Drawbridge across the Tennessee River, mile 304.4, at Decatur, Alabama. The deviation is necessary to allow the bridge owner time to replace and adjust the down haul operating ropes that are essential to the continued safe operation of the drawbridge. This deviation allows the bridge to remain in the closed-to-navigation position and not open to vessel traffic. DATES: This deviation is effective from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., September 17, 2014 and September 24, 2014. ADDRESSES: The docket for this deviation, (USCG–2014–0755) is available at http://www.regulations.gov.

The Southern 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 Tennessee River. The Southern Railroad Drawbridge, in the closed-to-navigation position, provides a vertical clearance of 10.52 feet above normal pool. Navigation on the waterway consists primarily of commercial tows and recreational watercraft and will not be significantly impacted. This temporary deviation has been coordinated with waterway users. No objections were received.
