Specifically, this draft guidance addresses FDA’s current thinking regarding the overall clinical development program, with a focus on phase 3 trial designs, to support an indication for the treatment of these conditions. On October 27, 2014, FDA convened a public patient-focused drug development meeting and heard directly from women suffering from female sexual desire and arousal disorders. The following day, FDA held a public scientific workshop with invited experts in sexual medicine to discuss scientific challenges involved in developing drugs to treat these disorders, including diagnostic criteria, endpoints, and patient-reported outcome instruments. Comments from the public and experts that were communicated during these proceedings, as well as comments submitted to FDA through the public docket, were used to inform this draft guidance. This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on developing drugs for the treatment of low sexual interest, desire, and/or arousal in women. 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. II.

SUMMARY: FDA PRA Staff, Office of Operations, Food and Drug Administration, Three White Flint North, 10A63, 11601 Landsdown St., North Bethesda, MD 20852, PRAStaff@fda.hhs.gov. 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. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Format and Content Requirements for OTC Drug Product Labeling—21 CFR Part 201—OMB Control Number 0910– 0340—Extension In the Federal Register of March 17, 1999 (64 FR 13254) (the 1999 labeling final rule), we amended our regulations governing requirements for human drug PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 products to establish standardized format and content requirements for the labeling of all marketed OTC drug products in part 201 (21 CFR part 201). The regulations in part 201 require OTC drug product labeling to include uniform headings and subheadings, presented in a standardized order, with minimum standards for type size and other graphical features. Specifically, the 1999 labeling final rule added new § 201.66 to part 201. Section 201.66 sets content and format requirements for the Drug Facts portion of labels on OTC drug products. On June 20, 2000 (65 FR 38191), we published a Federal Register final rule that required all OTC drug products marketed under the OTC monograph system to comply with the labeling requirements in § 201.66 by May 16, 2005, or sooner (65 FR 38191 at 38193). Currently marketed OTC drug products are already required to be in compliance with these labeling requirements, and thus will incur no further burden to comply with Drug Facts labeling requirements in § 201.66. Modifications of labeling already required to be in Drug Facts format are usual and customary as part of routine redesign practice, and thus do not create additional burden within the meaning of the PRA. Therefore, the burden to comply with the labeling requirements in § 201.66 is a one-time burden applicable only to new OTC drug products introduced to the marketplace under new drug applications (NDAs), abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs), or an OTC drug monograph, except for products in ‘‘convenience size’’ packages.1 New OTC drug products must comply with the labeling requirements in § 201.66 as they are introduced to the marketplace. Based on a March 1, 2010, estimate provided by the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (75 FR 49495 at 49496, August 13, 2010), we estimated that approximately 900 new OTC drug product stock-keeping units (SKUs) are introduced to the marketplace each 1 In a final rule published in the Federal Register of April 5, 2002, the Agency delayed the compliance dates for the 1999 labeling final rule for all OTC drug products that: (1) Contain no more than two doses of an OTC drug and (2) because of their limited available labeling space, would require more than 60 percent of the total surface area available to bear labeling to meet the requirements set forth in § 201.66(d)(1) and (9) and, therefore, qualify for the labeling modifications currently set forth in § 201.66(d)(10) (67 FR 16304 at 16306). The Agency issued this delay in order to develop additional rulemaking for these ‘‘convenience size’’ products (December 12, 2006; 71 FR 74474). These products are not currently subject to the requirements of § 201.66. PRA approval for any requirements to which they may be subject in the future will be handled in a separate rulemaking. E:\FR\FM\26OCN1.SGM 26OCN1 74453 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 207 / Wednesday, October 26, 2016 / Notices year. We estimated that these SKUs are marketed by 300 manufacturers. We estimated that the preparation of labeling for new OTC drug products would require 12 hours to prepare, complete, and review prior to submitting the new labeling to us. Based on this estimate, the annual reporting burden for this type of labeling is approximately 10,800 hours. All currently marketed sunscreen products are required to be in compliance with the Drug Facts labeling requirements in § 201.66, and thus will incur no further burden under the information collection provisions in the 1999 labeling final rule. However, a new OTC sunscreen drug product, like any new OTC drug product, will be subject to a one-time burden to comply with Drug Facts labeling requirements in § 201.66. We estimate that 60 new SKUs of OTC sunscreen drug products would be marketed each year (77 FR 27230 at 27234). We estimate that these 60 SKUs would be marketed by 20 manufacturers. We estimate that approximately 12 hours would be spent on each label, based on the most recent estimate used for other OTC drug products to comply with the 1999 Drug Facts labeling final rule, including public comments received on this estimate in 2010 that addressed sunscreens. In determining the burden for § 201.66, it is also important to consider exemptions or deferrals of the regulation allowed products under § 201.66(e). Since publication of the 1999 labeling final rule, we have received only one request for exemption or deferral. One response over a 10-year period equates to an annual frequency of response equal to 0.1. In the 1999 labeling final rule, we estimated that a request for deferral or exemption would require 24 hours to complete (64 FR 13254 at 13276). We continue to estimate that this type of response will require approximately 24 hours. Multiplying the annual frequency of response (0.1) by the number of hours per response (24) gives a total response time for requesting exemption of deferral equal to 3 hours. In the Federal Register of April 1, 2016 (81 FR 18861), we published a 60day notice requesting public comment on the proposed extension of this collection of information. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED THIRD-PARTY DISCLOSURE BURDEN 1 Number of respondents 21 CFR section Number of disclosures per respondent Total annual disclosures Average burden per disclosure Total hours 201.66(c) and (d) for new OTC drug products .................... 201.66(c) and (d) for new OTC sunscreen products .......... 201.66(e) .............................................................................. 300 20 1 3 3 0.125 900 60 .125 12 12 24 10,800 720 3 Total .............................................................................. ........................ ........................ ........................ ........................ 11,523 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

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.

Format and Content Requirements for OTC Drug Product Labeling--21 CFR 
Part 201--OMB Control Number 0910-0340--Extension

    In the Federal Register of March 17, 1999 (64 FR 13254) (the 1999 
labeling final rule), we amended our regulations governing requirements 
for human drug products to establish standardized format and content 
requirements for the labeling of all marketed OTC drug products in part 
201 (21 CFR part 201). The regulations in part 201 require OTC drug 
product labeling to include uniform headings and subheadings, presented 
in a standardized order, with minimum standards for type size and other 
graphical features. Specifically, the 1999 labeling final rule added 
new Sec.  201.66 to part 201. Section 201.66 sets content and format 
requirements for the Drug Facts portion of labels on OTC drug products.
    On June 20, 2000 (65 FR 38191), we published a Federal Register 
final rule that required all OTC drug products marketed under the OTC 
monograph system to comply with the labeling requirements in Sec.  
201.66 by May 16, 2005, or sooner (65 FR 38191 at 38193). Currently 
marketed OTC drug products are already required to be in compliance 
with these labeling requirements, and thus will incur no further burden 
to comply with Drug Facts labeling requirements in Sec.  201.66. 
Modifications of labeling already required to be in Drug Facts format 
are usual and customary as part of routine redesign practice, and thus 
do not create additional burden within the meaning of the PRA. 
Therefore, the burden to comply with the labeling requirements in Sec.  
201.66 is a one-time burden applicable only to new OTC drug products 
introduced to the marketplace under new drug applications (NDAs), 
abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs), or an OTC drug monograph, 
except for products in ``convenience size'' packages.\1\ New OTC drug 
products must comply with the labeling requirements in Sec.  201.66 as 
they are introduced to the marketplace.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In a final rule published in the Federal Register of April 
5, 2002, the Agency delayed the compliance dates for the 1999 
labeling final rule for all OTC drug products that: (1) Contain no 
more than two doses of an OTC drug and (2) because of their limited 
available labeling space, would require more than 60 percent of the 
total surface area available to bear labeling to meet the 
requirements set forth in Sec.  201.66(d)(1) and (9) and, therefore, 
qualify for the labeling modifications currently set forth in Sec.  
201.66(d)(10) (67 FR 16304 at 16306). The Agency issued this delay 
in order to develop additional rulemaking for these ``convenience 
size'' products (December 12, 2006; 71 FR 74474). These products are 
not currently subject to the requirements of Sec.  201.66. PRA 
approval for any requirements to which they may be subject in the 
future will be handled in a separate rulemaking.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on a March 1, 2010, estimate provided by the Consumer 
Healthcare Products Association (75 FR 49495 at 49496, August 13, 
2010), we estimated that approximately 900 new OTC drug product stock-
keeping units (SKUs) are introduced to the marketplace each

[[Page 74453]]

year. We estimated that these SKUs are marketed by 300 manufacturers. 
We estimated that the preparation of labeling for new OTC drug products 
would require 12 hours to prepare, complete, and review prior to 
submitting the new labeling to us. Based on this estimate, the annual 
reporting burden for this type of labeling is approximately 10,800 
hours.
    All currently marketed sunscreen products are required to be in 
compliance with the Drug Facts labeling requirements in Sec.  201.66, 
and thus will incur no further burden under the information collection 
provisions in the 1999 labeling final rule. However, a new OTC 
sunscreen drug product, like any new OTC drug product, will be subject 
to a one-time burden to comply with Drug Facts labeling requirements in 
Sec.  201.66. We estimate that 60 new SKUs of OTC sunscreen drug 
products would be marketed each year (77 FR 27230 at 27234). We 
estimate that these 60 SKUs would be marketed by 20 manufacturers. We 
estimate that approximately 12 hours would be spent on each label, 
based on the most recent estimate used for other OTC drug products to 
comply with the 1999 Drug Facts labeling final rule, including public 
comments received on this estimate in 2010 that addressed sunscreens.
    In determining the burden for Sec.  201.66, it is also important to 
consider exemptions or deferrals of the regulation allowed products 
under Sec.  201.66(e). Since publication of the 1999 labeling final 
rule, we have received only one request for exemption or deferral. One 
response over a 10-year period equates to an annual frequency of 
response equal to 0.1. In the 1999 labeling final rule, we estimated 
that a request for deferral or exemption would require 24 hours to 
complete (64 FR 13254 at 13276). We continue to estimate that this type 
of response will require approximately 24 hours. Multiplying the annual 
frequency of response (0.1) by the number of hours per response (24) 
gives a total response time for requesting exemption of deferral equal 
to 3 hours.
    In the Federal Register of April 1, 2016 (81 FR 18861), we 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
extension of this collection of information. No comments were received.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:
