SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry 
entitled ``Pediatric Study Plans: Content of and Process for Submitting 
Initial Pediatric Study Plans and Amended Initial Pediatric Study 
Plans.'' The purpose of this draft guidance is to assist sponsors in 
the submission of an iPSP and any amendments to an iPSP. Specifically, 
this guidance addresses FDA's current thinking regarding the 
requirement for sponsors to submit an iPSP under section 505B of the 
FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 355c) as amended by FDASIA.
    This guidance revises the draft guidance entitled ``Pediatric Study 
Plans: Content of and Process for Submitting Initial Pediatric Study 
Plans and Amended Pediatric Study Plans'' issued July 15, 2013 (78 FR 
42085). Changes made in this draft guidance were based largely on 
public comments received by FDA on the 2013 draft guidance.
    The following topics are addressed in this draft guidance: (1) Who 
must submit an iPSP; (2) when an iPSP must be submitted; (3) what 
should be included in an iPSP; (4) what should be included in a 
requested amendment to an iPSP; (5) the relationship of an agreed iPSP 
to the requirement to submit a pediatric study plan with a marketing 
application; (6) what is meant by a non-agreed iPSP; and (7) processes 
for reaching agreement with FDA on a non-agreed iPSP. This draft 
guidance also includes a revised template that should be used for 
submission of an iPSP.
    This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA's good 
guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when 
finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on the content of 
and process for submitting iPSPs and amended iPSPs. It does not 
establish any rights for any person and is not binding on FDA or the 
public. You can use an alternative approach if it satisfies the 
requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations.

pediatric studies under 21 CFR 312.47(b)(1)(iv) and waiver requests
