SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Advisory committees provide independent, expert advice to FDA on a range of issues affecting the public health. To protect the credibility and integrity of advisory committee advice, FDA screens advisory committee members carefully for two categories of potentially disqualifying interests or relationships: (1) Current financial interests that may create a recusal obligation under Federal conflict of interest laws (18 U.S.C. 208) and (2) other interests and relationships that do not create a recusal obligation under financial conflict of interest laws but may create the appearance that the member lacks impartiality (5 CFR 2635.502). This draft guidance addresses FDA’s process for evaluating whether an advisory committee member has potentially disqualifying interests or relationships that fall into the second category of interests, which are known as appearance issues, under 5 CFR 2635.502. It also describes FDA’s process for determining whether to authorize a member with an appearance issue to participate in an advisory committee meeting under 5 CFR 2635.502. In addition, FDA is seeking comment regarding public disclosure of such authorizations. Under Federal laws protecting the confidentiality of information, FDA may not itself disclose confidential information provided by advisory committee members related to appearance issues. FDA is soliciting comment on whether the agency should ask members with appearance issues who are authorized to participate in an PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 advisory committee meeting to voluntarily publicly disclose authorization. The Agency will consider these comments in developing the final guidance document. II. Significance of Guidance This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the Agency’s current thinking on the processes for evaluating appearance issues and granting an authorization. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statute and regulations. III. Electronic Access Persons interested in obtaining a copy of the draft guidance may do so by downloading an electronic copy from the Internet at either http:// www.fda.gov/RegulatoryInformation/ Guidances/ucm122044.htm or http:// www.regulations.gov.
