SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Background In July 2012, Congress passed GDUFA (Title III of the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (Pub. L. 112–144)). GDUFA is designed to enhance public access to safe, high-quality generic drugs and modernize the generic drug program. To support this goal, FDA agreed in the GDUFA commitment letter to work with industry and interested stakeholders on identifying regulatory science research priorities specific to generic drugs for each fiscal year covered by GDUFA. The commitment letter outlines FDA’s performance goals and procedures under the GDUFA program for the years 2012–2017. The commitment letter can be found at http://www.fda.gov/ downloads/ForIndustry/UserFees/ GenericDrugUserFees/UCM282505.pdf. II. Topics for Discussion at the Public Workshop The purpose of the May public workshop is to obtain input from industry and other interested stakeholders on the identification of generic drug regulatory science priorities for FY 2018. FDA is holding this public workshop because the Agency intends to continue its regulatory science initiatives upon reauthorization of GDUFA (i.e., GDUFA II) for FYs 2018–2022 (see Generic Drug User Fees; Public Meeting; Request for Comments, 81 FR 66035, September 26, 2016). To help fulfill its mission, FDA is particularly interested in receiving input on the following topics: • Opportunities for scientific or technical advancements that would help to overcome specific barriers for industry that currently limit the availability of generic drug products. • Innovative approaches to preapproval development of generic drugs, including new methodologies for product design and manufacturing, and design and conduct of in vitro, ex vivo, and clinical studies and identification of scientifically robust strategies for demonstration of bioequivalence for various product classes. • Innovation in scientific approaches to evaluating the therapeutic VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Mar 13, 2017 Jkt 241001 equivalence of generic drug products throughout their life cycle. • Identification of high-impact public health issues involving generic drugs that can be addressed by the prioritized allocation of FY 2018 funding for regulatory science research. • Identification of specific issues related to generic drug products where scientific recommendations and/or clarifications are needed in developing and/or revising FDA’s guidance for industry. • Strategies for enhancing quality and equivalence risk management during generic drug product development, during regulatory review, and/or throughout the drug product’s life cycle. FDA will consider all comments made at this workshop or received through the docket (see ADDRESSES) as it develops its FY 2018 regulatory science priorities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery. Abstract: The proposed information collection activity provides a means to garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The solicitation of feedback will target areas such as: Timeliness, appropriateness, accuracy of information, courtesy, efficiency of service delivery, and resolution of issues with service delivery. Responses will be assessed to plan and inform efforts to improve or maintain the quality of service offered to the public. If this information is not collected, vital feedback from customers and stakeholders on the Agency’s services will be unavailable. The Agency will only submit a collection for approval under this generic clearance if it meets the following conditions: • The collections are voluntary; • The collections are low-burden for respondents (based on considerations of total burden hours, total number of respondents, or burden-hours per E:\FR\FM\14MRN1.SGM 14MRN1
