Download as PDF 70876 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 229 / Friday, November 28, 2014 / Notices from 3,000 adult members in online consumer panels maintained by a contractor. The study plans to randomly select 800 panel members in each of three groups: Spanish-dominant Hispanics, English-dominant Hispanics, and English-speaking non-Hispanics. Both English and Spanish questionnaires will be used, as appropriate. The study plans to include topics such as: (1) Food safety knowledge and attitude and (2) food handling and consumption practice. To help us understand the data, the study will also collect information on respondents’ background, including, but not limited to, health status and demographic characteristics, such as age, gender, education, and income, and degree of acculturation among Hispanic respondents using a measure developed by Marin, et al. (Ref. 6). The study is part of our continuing effort to protect the public health. We will not use the results of the study to develop population estimates. We will use the results of the study to develop followup quantitative and qualitative research to gauge the prevalence and extent of differences in food safety knowledge and behaviors between the three mentioned population groups. We will use the results of the followup research to help inform the design of effective education and outreach initiatives aimed at helping reduce the risk of foodborne illness for the general U.S. population as well as Hispanics. We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Activity Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours Cognitive interview screener .............

We base our estimates on prior experience with research that is similar to this proposed study. We will use a cognitive interview screener with 72 individuals to recruit prospective interview participants. We estimate that it will take a screener respondent approximately 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to complete the cognitive interview screener, for a total of 5.976 hours, rounded to 6 hours. We will conduct cognitive interviews with nine participants. We estimate that it will take a participant approximately 30 minutes to complete the interview, for a total of 4.5 hours, rounded to 5 hours. We also plan to conduct a pretest to identify and resolve potential survey administration problems. We will send a pretest invitation to 1,440 prospective pretest participants and estimate that it will take a respondent approximately 2 minutes (0.033 hours) to complete the invitation, for a total of 47.52 hours, rounded to 48 hours. We will administer the pretest with 180 participants and estimate that it will take a participant 15 minutes (0.25 hours) to complete the pretest, for a total of 45 hours. We will send a study invitation to 24,000 prospective participants and estimate that it will take a respondent approximately 2 minutes (0.033 hours) to complete the invitation, for a total of 792 hours. We will administer the study with 3,000 participants and estimate that it will take a participant 15 minutes (0.25 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:31 Nov 26, 2014 Jkt 235001 hours) to complete the study, for a total of 750 hours.

DATES: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Petition to Request an Exemption from 100 Percent Identity Testing of Dietary Ingredients: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements—21 CFR 111.75(a)(1)(ii) (OMB Control Number 0910–0608)— Reinstatement The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) (Pub. L. 103– 417) added section 402(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 342(g)), which provides, in part, that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) may, by regulation, prescribe good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements. Section 402(g)(1) of the FD&C Act states that a dietary supplement is adulterated if ‘‘it has been prepared, packed, or held under conditions that do not meet current good manufacturing practice regulations.’’ Section 701(a) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 371(a)) gives us the authority to issue regulations for the efficient enforcement of the FD&C Act. Part 111 of our regulations (21 CFR part 111) establishes the minimum current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) necessary for activities related to manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding dietary supplements to ensure the quality of the dietary supplement. Section 111.75(a)(1) of our regulations establishes a procedure for a petition to request an exemption from 100 percent identity testing of dietary ingredients. In accordance with § 111.75(a)(1)(ii), manufacturers may request an exemption from the requirements set forth in § 111.75(a)(1)(i) when the dietary ingredient is obtained from one or more suppliers identified in the petition. The regulation clarifies that we are willing to consider, on a case-by-case basis, a manufacturer’s conclusion, supported by appropriate data and information in the petition submission, that it has developed a system that it would implement as a sound, consistent means of establishing, with no material diminution of assurance compared to the assurance provided by 100 percent identity testing, the identity of the dietary ingredient before use. Section 111.75(a)(1) reflects our determination that manufacturers that test or examine 100 percent of the incoming dietary ingredients for identity can be assured of the identity of the ingredient. However, we recognize that it may be possible for a manufacturer to demonstrate, through various methods and processes in use over time for its particular operation, that a system of less than 100 percent identity testing would result in no material diminution of assurance of the identity of the dietary ingredient as compared to the assurance provided by 100 percent identity testing. To provide an opportunity for a manufacturer to make such a showing and reduce the frequency of identity testing of components that are dietary ingredients from 100 percent to some lower frequency, we added to § 111.75(a)(1), an exemption from the requirement of 100 percent identity testing when a manufacturer petitions the Agency for such an exemption to 100 percent identity testing under § 10.30 and the Agency grants such exemption. Such a procedure would be consistent with our stated goal, as described in the CGMP final rule, of providing flexibility in the CGMP requirements. Section 111.75(a)(1)(ii) sets forth the information a manufacturer is required to submit in such a petition. The regulation also contains a requirement to ensure that the manufacturer keeps our response to a petition submitted under § 111.75(a)(1)(ii) as a record under § 111.95. The collection of information in § 111.95 has been approved under OMB control number 0910–0606. Description of Respondents: The respondents to this collection of information are firms in the dietary supplement industry, including dietary supplement manufacturers, packagers and re-packagers, holders, labelers and re-labelers, distributors, warehouses, exporters, importers, large businesses, and small businesses. In the Federal Register of November 14, 2013 (78 FR 68453), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. While three comments were received, none were responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited in the notice and therefore are not discussed in this document. Additionally, although FDA was unable to publish a 30 day notice before the information collection expiration and is therefore requesting its reinstatement, the Agency has not conducted or sponsored any collection of information under OMB control number 0910–0608 in the interim period. We estimate the annual burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 21 CFR Section; CGMP requirements for dietary supplements Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours 111.75(a)(1)(ii) ..................................................................... 1 1 1 8 8 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On November 27, 2013, the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (Title II of Public Law 113–54) was signed into law. Section 202 of the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), which adds new sections 581 and 582 to the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360eee and 360eee–1), sets forth new definitions and requirements related to product tracing. The DSCSA outlines critical steps to build an electronic, interoperable system by November 27, 2023, that will identify and trace certain prescription drugs as they are distributed within the United States. Starting in 2015, certain trading partners (manufacturers, wholesale distributors, dispensers, and repackagers) are required under sections 582(b)(1), (c)(1), (d)(1), and (e)(1) of the FD&C Act to capture, maintain, and provide the subsequent purchaser with transaction information, transaction history, and a transaction statement (product tracing information) for certain prescription drug products. Manufacturers, wholesale distributors, and repackagers must meet these requirements by January 1, 2015; dispensers must meet them by July 1, 2015. In addition, each manufacturer, PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 wholesale distributor, dispenser, and repackager must comply with all applicable requirements in the event they meet the definition of more than one trading partner under section 582(a)(1), but trading partners are not required to duplicate requirements. Section 582(a)(2)(A) of the FD&C Act directs FDA to establish initial standards to facilitate the interoperable exchange of transaction information, transaction history, and transaction statements between trading partners. FDA obtained stakeholder input on the development of the initial standards for the interoperable exchange of product tracing information, in paper and electronic formats, through a public docket established in February 2014, as required under section 582(a)(2)(B), and a public workshop that was held May 8 and 9, 2014. The public workshop provided a forum for FDA to obtain input from stakeholders in the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain on how trading partners can best comply with the requirements for the interoperable exchange of product tracing information beginning in 2015, using currently available standards or practices. Comments to the public dockets and from the workshop were considered in the development of this guidance, and will be considered in developing additional guidance to further elaborate on the standards for the interoperable exchange of product tracing information. This initial draft guidance establishes standards to help trading partners comply with the requirements of sections 582(b)(1), (c)(1), (d)(1), and (e)(1) of the FD&C Act to provide the subsequent trading partners with product tracing information, in paper or electronic format, through the extension and/or use of current systems and processes. Under these provisions, trading partners are also required to capture and maintain the applicable product tracing information for not less than 6 years after the date of the transaction. Implementation of these provisions will help further improve the security of the pharmaceutical distribution supply chain and increase confidence in the safety and authenticity of human prescription drugs. FDA intends to issue additional guidance to facilitate the interoperable exchange of product tracing information through standardization of data and documentation practices. This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). This guidance is marked as a ‘‘draft’’ consistent with its description in section 582(a)(2)(A) of the FD&C Act. E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has 
submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for 
review and clearance.
    Petition to Request an Exemption from 100 Percent Identity Testing 
of Dietary Ingredients:

Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, 
Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements--21 CFR 
111.75(a)(1)(ii) (OMB Control Number 0910-0608)--Reinstatement

    The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) (Pub. L. 
103-417) added section 402(g) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic 
Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 342(g)), which provides, in part, that the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) may, by 
regulation, prescribe good manufacturing practices for dietary 
supplements. Section 402(g)(1) of the FD&C Act states that a dietary 
supplement is adulterated if ``it has been prepared, packed, or held 
under conditions that do not meet current good manufacturing practice 
regulations.'' Section 701(a) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 371(a)) gives 
us the authority to issue regulations for the efficient enforcement of 
the FD&C Act.
    Part 111 of our regulations (21 CFR part 111) establishes the 
minimum current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) necessary for 
activities related to manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding 
dietary supplements to ensure the quality of the dietary supplement. 
Section 111.75(a)(1) of our regulations establishes a procedure for a 
petition to request an exemption from 100 percent identity testing of 
dietary ingredients. In accordance with Sec.  111.75(a)(1)(ii), 
manufacturers may request an exemption from the requirements set forth 
in Sec.  111.75(a)(1)(i) when the dietary ingredient is obtained from 
one or more suppliers identified in the petition. The regulation 
clarifies that we are willing to consider, on a case-by-case basis, a 
manufacturer's conclusion, supported by appropriate data and 
information in the petition submission, that it has developed a system 
that it would implement as a sound, consistent means of establishing, 
with no material diminution of assurance compared to the assurance 
provided by 100 percent identity testing, the identity of the dietary 
ingredient before use.
    Section 111.75(a)(1) reflects our determination that manufacturers 
that test or examine 100 percent of the incoming dietary ingredients 
for identity can be assured of the identity of the ingredient. However, 
we recognize that it may be possible for a manufacturer to demonstrate, 
through various methods and processes in use over time for its 
particular operation, that a system of less than 100 percent identity 
testing would result in no material diminution of assurance of the 
identity of the dietary ingredient as compared to the assurance 
provided by 100 percent identity testing. To provide an opportunity for 
a manufacturer to make such a showing and reduce the frequency of 
identity testing of components that are dietary ingredients from 100 
percent to some lower frequency, we added to Sec.  111.75(a)(1), an 
exemption from the requirement of 100 percent identity testing when a 
manufacturer petitions the Agency for such an exemption to 100 percent 
identity testing under Sec.  10.30 and the Agency grants such 
exemption. Such a procedure would be consistent with our stated goal, 
as described in the CGMP final rule, of providing flexibility in the 
CGMP requirements. Section 111.75(a)(1)(ii) sets forth the information 
a manufacturer is required to submit in such a petition. The regulation 
also contains a requirement to ensure that the manufacturer keeps our 
response to a petition submitted under Sec.  111.75(a)(1)(ii) as a 
record under Sec.  111.95. The collection of information in Sec.  
111.95 has been approved under OMB control number 0910-0606.
    Description of Respondents: The respondents to this collection of 
information are firms in the dietary supplement industry, including 
dietary supplement manufacturers, packagers and re-packagers, holders, 
labelers and re-labelers, distributors, warehouses, exporters, 
importers, large businesses, and small businesses.
    In the Federal Register of November 14, 2013 (78 FR 68453), FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. While three comments were received, none 
were responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited 
in the notice and therefore are not discussed in this document. 
Additionally, although FDA was unable to publish a 30 day notice before 
the information collection expiration and is therefore requesting its 
reinstatement, the Agency has not conducted or sponsored any collection 
of information under OMB control number 0910-0608 in the interim 
period.
    We estimate the annual burden of this collection of information as 
follows:

    In the last 3 years, we have not received any new petitions to 
request an exemption from 100 percent identity testing of dietary 
ingredients; therefore, the Agency estimates that one or fewer 
petitions will be submitted annually. Based on our experience with 
petition processes, we estimate it will take a requestor about 8 hours 
to prepare the factual and legal information necessary to support a 
petition for exemption and to prepare the petition. Although we have 
not received any new petitions to request an exemption from 100 percent 
identity testing of dietary ingredients in

the last 3 years, we believe that OMB approval of these information 
collection provisions should be extended to provide for the potential 
future need of a firm in the dietary supplement industry to petition 
for an exemption from 100 percent identity testing of dietary 
ingredients.
