Animal Drug User Fee Cover Sheet— OMB Control Number 0910–0539— Extension Under section 740 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 379j–12), FDA has the authority to assess and collect application fees from each person who submits certain new animal drug applications or certain supplemental animal drug applications. The Animal Drug User Fee cover sheet (Form FDA 3546) is designed to collect the minimum necessary information to determine whether a fee is required for the review of an application or supplement or whether an application fee waiver was granted, to determine the amount of the fee required, and to assure that each animal drug user fee payment is appropriately linked to the animal drug application for which payment is made. The form, when completed electronically, will result in the generation of a unique payment identification number used by FDA to track the payment. FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine and FDA’s Office of Management will use the information collected to initiate the administrative screening of new animal drug applications and supplements to determine whether the payment has been received. Description of Respondents: Respondents to this collection of information are new animal drug applicants. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 FDA form No. Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours FDA 3546 ........................... 21 1 21 1 21 FD&C Act section; description 740(a)(1); Animal Drug User Fee cover sheet. 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. The estimates in table 1 are based on our experience with new animal drug applications and supplemental animal drug applications and the average number of Animal Drug User Fee cover sheets submitted during fiscal years 2013–2015. We estimate 21 respondents will each submit a cover sheet (Form FDA 3546), for a total of 21 responses. We calculate a reporting burden of 1 hour per response, for a total of 21 hours.
