Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This guidance refers to currently approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520) (the PRA). The collections of information in 21 CFR part 801 are approved under OMB control number 0910–0485 and the collections of information in 21 CFR part 610, subpart G, are approved under OMB control number 0910–0338. The labeling provisions recommended in this guidance are not subject to review by OMB because they do not constitute a ‘‘collection of information’’ under the PRA. Rather, the recommended labeling is a ‘‘public disclosure of information originally supplied by the Federal Government to the recipient for the purpose of disclosure to the public’’ (5 CFR 1320.3(c)(2)).
