In the past, commenters have argued that FDA’s burden estimate is too low. FDA carefully considered the issue and believes that burden estimates of greater than 20 hours are likely to include the burden associated with researching and generating safety data for a new dietary ingredient. Under section 413(a)(2) of the FD&C Act, a dietary supplement that contains a new dietary ingredient is deemed to be adulterated unless there is a history of use or other evidence of safety establishing that the new dietary ingredient will reasonably be expected to be safe under the conditions of use recommended or suggested in the labeling of the dietary supplement. This requirement is separate from and additional to the requirement to submit a premarket notification for the new dietary ingredient. FDA’s regulation on new dietary ingredient notifications, § 190.6(a), requires the manufacturer or distributor of the dietary supplement or of the new dietary ingredient to submit to FDA the information that forms the basis for its conclusion that a dietary supplement containing the new dietary ingredient will reasonably be expected to be safe. Thus, § 190.6 only requires the manufacturer or distributor to extract and summarize information that should have already been developed to meet the safety requirement in section 413(a)(2) of the FD&C Act. FDA estimates that extracting and summarizing the relevant information from what exists in the company’s files and presenting it in a format that meets the requirements of § 190.6 will take approximately 20 hours of work per notification. However, FDA seeks comments on this estimate. FDA encourages comments offering alternative burden estimates to include documentation to support the alternative estimate. FDA further estimates that 55 respondents will submit 1 premarket notification each. FDA bases its estimate of the number of respondents on notifications received over the past 3 years, which averaged about 55 notifications per year. Dated: November 10, 2014.

It was designed to ease restrictions on exportation of unapproved pharmaceuticals, biologics, and devices regulated by FDA. Section 801(e)(4) of the FDAERA provides that persons exporting certain FDA regulated products may request FDA to certify that the products meet the requirements of 801(e) and 802 or other requirements of the FD&C Act.

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))

Export of Food and Drug Administration Regulated Products: Export 
Certificates (OMB Control Number 0910-0498)--Extension

    In April 1996, a law entitled ``The FDA Export Reform and 
Enhancement Act of 1996'' (FDAERA) amended sections 801(e) and 802 of 
the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 381(e) and 382). It was designed to ease 
restrictions on exportation of unapproved pharmaceuticals, biologics, 
and devices regulated by FDA. Section 801(e)(4) of the FDAERA provides 
that persons exporting certain FDA regulated products may request FDA 
to certify that the products meet the requirements of 801(e) and 802 or 
other requirements of the FD&C Act. This section of the law requires 
FDA to issue certification within 20 days of receipt of the request and 
to charge firms up to $175 for the certifications.
    This section of the FD&C Act authorizes FDA to issue export 
certificates for regulated pharmaceuticals, biologics, and devices that 
are legally marketed in the United States, as well as for these same 
products that are not legally marketed but are acceptable to the 
importing country, as specified in sections 801(e)

[[Page 68278]]

and 802 of the FD&C Act. FDA has developed five types of certificates 
that satisfy the requirements of section 801(e)(4)(B) of the FD&C Act: 
(1) Certificates to Foreign Governments, (2) Certificates of 
Exportability, (3) Certificates of a Pharmaceutical Product, and (4) 
Non-Clinical Research Use Only Certificates. Table 1 of this document 
lists the different certificates and details their use:

    FDA will continue to rely on self-certification by manufacturers 
for the first three types of certificates listed in table 1 of this 
document. Manufacturers are requested to self-certify that they are in 
compliance with all applicable requirements of the FD&C Act, not only 
at the time that they submit their request to the appropriate center, 
but also at the time that they submit the certification to the foreign 
government.
    The appropriate FDA centers will review product information 
submitted by firms in support of their certificate and any suspected 
case of fraud will be referred to FDA's Office of Criminal 
Investigations for follow up. Making or submitting to FDA false 
statements on any documents may constitute violations of 18 U.S.C. 
1001, with penalties including up to $250,000 in fines and up to 5 
years imprisonment.
