SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Pediatric Rare Diseases—A Collaborative Approach for Drug Development Using Gaucher Disease as a Model.’’ The emergence of concomitant trials for multiple investigational drug products for the treatment of rare disease can pose significant challenges to effective drug development, given the limited number of patients worldwide with these diagnoses. This guidance discusses, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Dec 06, 2017 Jkt 244001 among other things, a multi-arm, multicompany clinical trial as a novel approach to enhance the efficiency of drug development in pediatric rare diseases using pediatric Gaucher disease as an example. The proposal applies only to systemic (i.e., non-neurological) manifestations of Gaucher disease (i.e., patients with Type I and Type III phenotypes). The purpose of this guidance is to facilitate drug development in pediatric rare diseases, with a focus on Gaucher disease. In this guidance, Gaucher disease is provided as a disease model. However, the principles underlying this proposal may be extended to other areas of drug development in rare diseases. The guidance was originally a document developed as a strategic collaboration between FDA and the European Medicines Agency to enhance the efficiency of drug development in Gaucher disease, which was released in 2014 for public comment. The draft guidance is an updated version of the document and has no fundamental changes to the original intent and content. This draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on ‘‘Pediatric Rare Diseases—A Collaborative Approach for Drug Development Using Gaucher Disease as a Model.’’ 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. This guidance is not subject to Executive Order 12866. II. The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This draft guidance refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). The collections of information in 21 CFR parts 312 and 314 have been approved under OMB control numbers 0910–0014 and 0910– 0001, respectively. The collections of information in 21 CFR 201.57 for the content and format of prescription drug labeling was approved under OMB control number 0910–0572. III.

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. SUMMARY: Food Safety Survey OMB Control Number 0910–0345— Extension Under section 1003(b)(2) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393(b)(2)), we are authorized E:\FR\FM\07DEN1.SGM 07DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 234 / Thursday, December 7, 2017 / Notices to conduct research relating to foods and to conduct educational and public information programs relating to the safety of the nation’s food supply. The Food Safety Survey measures consumers’ knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about food safety. Previous versions of the survey were collected in 1988, 1993, 1998, 2001, 2006, 2010, and 2016. Food Safety Survey data are used to measure trends in consumer food safety habits including hand and cutting board washing, cooking practices, and use of food thermometers. Data are also used to evaluate educational messages and to inform policymakers about consumer attitudes about technologies such as food irradiation and biotechnology. The proposed Food Safety Survey will contain many of the same questions and topics as previous Food Safety Surveys to facilitate measuring trends in food safety knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors over time. The proposed survey will also be updated to explore emerging consumer food safety topics and expand understanding of previously asked topics. The methods for the proposed Food Safety Survey will be largely the same as those used with the previous Food Safety Surveys with the exception of the inclusion of address based sampling (ABS) methods to explore the method as a possible alternative for new survey questions. ABS is sampling from address frames that are usually based, in part, on residential addresses in the U.S. Postal Service Computerized Delivery Sequence File. ABS is a cost effective method of sampling that provides much coverage of U.S. households for inperson, mail, telephone, and multimode surveys (including web-based surveys.) The Food Safety Survey will continue to include cell phones in addition to landlines for the telephone interviews. A nationally representative sample of 4,000 adults will be selected at random 57761 to complete the survey. The survey will also include an oversample of Hispanics and Blacks to ensure a minimum of 400 each. Additionally, methods will be employed to test for the presence of response bias. Participation in the survey will be voluntary. Cognitive interviews and a pre-test will be conducted prior to fielding the survey. In the Federal Register of July 3, 2017 (82 FR 30871), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. We received two comments. One commenter discussed the importance of food safety, for which FDA agrees, and one commenter provided a comment which was unrelated to the information collection. After evaluating these comments, FDA will not revise the information collection. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Activity Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours Cognitive interview screener ...............................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has

to conduct research relating to foods and to conduct educational and 
public information programs relating to the safety of the nation's food 
supply. The Food Safety Survey measures consumers' knowledge, 
attitudes, and beliefs about food safety. Previous versions of the 
survey were collected in 1988, 1993, 1998, 2001, 2006, 2010, and 2016. 
Food Safety Survey data are used to measure trends in consumer food 
safety habits including hand and cutting board washing, cooking 
practices, and use of food thermometers. Data are also used to evaluate 
educational messages and to inform policymakers about consumer 
attitudes about technologies such as food irradiation and 
biotechnology.
    The proposed Food Safety Survey will contain many of the same 
questions and topics as previous Food Safety Surveys to facilitate 
measuring trends in food safety knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors 
over time. The proposed survey will also be updated to explore emerging 
consumer food safety topics and expand understanding of previously 
asked topics.
    The methods for the proposed Food Safety Survey will be largely the 
same as those used with the previous Food Safety Surveys with the 
exception of the inclusion of address based sampling (ABS) methods to 
explore the method as a possible alternative for new survey questions. 
ABS is sampling from address frames that are usually based, in part, on 
residential addresses in the U.S. Postal Service Computerized Delivery 
Sequence File. ABS is a cost effective method of sampling that provides 
much coverage of U.S. households for in-person, mail, telephone, and 
multimode surveys (including web-based surveys.) The Food Safety Survey 
will continue to include cell phones in addition to landlines for the 
telephone interviews. A nationally representative sample of 4,000 
adults will be selected at random to complete the survey. The survey 
will also include an oversample of Hispanics and Blacks to ensure a 
minimum of 400 each. Additionally, methods will be employed to test for 
the presence of response bias. Participation in the survey will be 
voluntary. Cognitive interviews and a pre-test will be conducted prior 
to fielding the survey.
    In the Federal Register of July 3, 2017 (82 FR 30871), FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. We received two comments. One commenter 
discussed the importance of food safety, for which FDA agrees, and one 
commenter provided a comment which was unrelated to the information 
collection. After evaluating these comments, FDA will not revise the 
information collection.
