SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75825 validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Patent Term Restoration, Due Diligence Petitions, Filing, Format, and Content of Petitions—21 CFR Part 60—OMB Control Number 0910–0233—Extension FDA’s patent extension activities are conducted under the authority of the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 (21 U.S.C. 355(j)) and the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1988 (35 U.S.C. 156). New human drug, animal drug, human biological, medical device, food additive, or color additive products regulated by the FDA must undergo FDA safety, or safety and effectiveness review before marketing is permitted. Where the product is covered by a patent, part of the patent’s term may be consumed during this review, which diminishes the value of the patent. In enacting the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 and the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1988, Congress sought to encourage development of new, safer, and more effective medical and food additive products. It did so by authorizing the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to extend the patent term by a portion of the time during which FDA’s safety and effectiveness review prevented marketing of the product. The length of the patent term extension is generally limited to a maximum of 5 years, and is calculated by USPTO based on a statutory formula. When a patent holder submits an application for patent term extension to USPTO, USPTO requests information from FDA, including the length of the regulatory review period for the patented product. If USPTO concludes that the product is eligible for patent term extension, FDA publishes a notice that describes the length of the regulatory review period and the dates used to calculate that period. Interested parties may request, under § 60.24 (21 CFR 60.24), revision of the length of the regulatory review period, or may petition under § 60.30 (21 CFR 60.30) to reduce the regulatory review period by any time where marketing approval was not pursued with ‘‘due diligence.’’ The statute defines due diligence as ‘‘that degree of attention, continuous directed effort, and timeliness’’ as may E:\FR\FM\01NON1.SGM 01NON1 75826 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 211 / Tuesday, November 1, 2016 / Notices reasonably be expected from, and are ordinarily exercised by, a person during a regulatory review period. As provided in § 60.30(c), a due diligence petition ‘‘shall set forth sufficient facts, including dates if possible, to merit an investigation by FDA of whether the applicant acted with due diligence.’’ Upon receipt of a due diligence petition, FDA reviews the petition and evaluates whether any change in the regulatory review period if necessary. If so, the corrected regulatory review period is published in the Federal Register. A due diligence petitioner not satisfied with FDA’s decision regarding the petition may, under § 60.40 (21 CFR 60.40), request an informal hearing for reconsideration of the due diligence determination. Petitioners are likely to include persons or organizations having knowledge that FDA’s marketing permission for that product was not actively pursued throughout the regulatory review period. The information collection for which an extension of approval is being sought is the use of the statutorily created due diligence petition. Since 1992, 20 requests for revision of the regulatory review period have been submitted under § 60.24(a). For 2013, 2014 and 2015, a total of 5 requests have been submitted under § 60.24(a). During that same time period, there have been no requests under §§ 60.30 and 60.40; however, for purposes of this information collection approval, we are estimating that we may receive one submission annually.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal 
Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. 
``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 
1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a 
third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) 
requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal 
Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including 
each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, 
before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with 
this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection 
of information set forth in this document.
    With respect to the following collection of information, FDA 
invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection 
of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques, when 
appropriate, and other forms of information technology.

Patent Term Restoration, Due Diligence Petitions, Filing, Format, and 
Content of Petitions--21 CFR Part 60--OMB Control Number 0910-0233--
Extension

    FDA's patent extension activities are conducted under the authority 
of the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 1984 
(21 U.S.C. 355(j)) and the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term 
Restoration Act of 1988 (35 U.S.C. 156). New human drug, animal drug, 
human biological, medical device, food additive, or color additive 
products regulated by the FDA must undergo FDA safety, or safety and 
effectiveness review before marketing is permitted. Where the product 
is covered by a patent, part of the patent's term may be consumed 
during this review, which diminishes the value of the patent. In 
enacting the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act of 
1984 and the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Term Restoration Act of 
1988, Congress sought to encourage development of new, safer, and more 
effective medical and food additive products. It did so by authorizing 
the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to extend the patent term 
by a portion of the time during which FDA's safety and effectiveness 
review prevented marketing of the product. The length of the patent 
term extension is generally limited to a maximum of 5 years, and is 
calculated by USPTO based on a statutory formula. When a patent holder 
submits an application for patent term extension to USPTO, USPTO 
requests information from FDA, including the length of the regulatory 
review period for the patented product. If USPTO concludes that the 
product is eligible for patent term extension, FDA publishes a notice 
that describes the length of the regulatory review period and the dates 
used to calculate that period. Interested parties may request, under 
Sec.  60.24 (21 CFR 60.24), revision of the length of the regulatory 
review period, or may petition under Sec.  60.30 (21 CFR 60.30) to 
reduce the regulatory review period by any time where marketing 
approval was not pursued with ``due diligence.''
    The statute defines due diligence as ``that degree of attention, 
continuous directed effort, and timeliness'' as may

[[Page 75826]]

reasonably be expected from, and are ordinarily exercised by, a person 
during a regulatory review period. As provided in Sec.  60.30(c), a due 
diligence petition ``shall set forth sufficient facts, including dates 
if possible, to merit an investigation by FDA of whether the applicant 
acted with due diligence.'' Upon receipt of a due diligence petition, 
FDA reviews the petition and evaluates whether any change in the 
regulatory review period if necessary. If so, the corrected regulatory 
review period is published in the Federal Register. A due diligence 
petitioner not satisfied with FDA's decision regarding the petition 
may, under Sec.  60.40 (21 CFR 60.40), request an informal hearing for 
reconsideration of the due diligence determination. Petitioners are 
likely to include persons or organizations having knowledge that FDA's 
marketing permission for that product was not actively pursued 
throughout the regulatory review period. The information collection for 
which an extension of approval is being sought is the use of the 
statutorily created due diligence petition.
    Since 1992, 20 requests for revision of the regulatory review 
period have been submitted under Sec.  60.24(a). For 2013, 2014 and 
2015, a total of 5 requests have been submitted under Sec.  60.24(a). 
During that same time period, there have been no requests under 
Sec. Sec.  60.30 and 60.40; however, for purposes of this information 
collection approval, we are estimating that we may receive one 
submission annually.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as
