To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document.

Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing, Form FDA 2830—21 CFR part 607 (OMB Control Number 0910–0052—Extension) Under section 510 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360), any person owning or operating an establishment that manufactures, prepares, propagates, compounds, or processes a drug or device must register with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, on or before December 31 of each year, his or her name, places of business, and all such establishments, among other information, and must submit a list of all drug and all device products manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded, or processed by him or her for commercial distribution, among other information. In 21 CFR part 607, FDA has issued regulations implementing these requirements for manufacturers of human blood and blood products. Section 607.20(a), requires, in part, that owners or operators of certain establishments that engage in the manufacture of blood products register and submit a list of every blood product in commercial distribution. Section 607.21 requires the owner or operator of an establishments entering into the manufacturing of blood products to register the establishment within 5 days after beginning such operation and to submit a list of every blood product in commercial distribution at the time. If the owner or operator of the establishment has not previously entered into such operation for which a license is required, registration must follow within 5 days after the submission of a biologics license application. In addition, owners or operators of all establishments so engaged must register annually between October 1 and December 31 and update their blood product listing every June and December. Section 607.22(a) requires, in part, that initial and subsequent registrations and product listings be submitted electronically through the Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing system or any future superseding electronic system. Section 607.22(b) requires, in part, that requests for a waiver of the requirements of § 607.22 be submitted in writing and include the specific reasons why electronic submission is not reasonable for the registrant. Section 607.22(c) provides that if FDA grants the waiver request, FDA may limit its duration and will specify the terms of the waiver and provide information on how to submit establishment registration, drug listings, other information, and updates, as applicable (e.g., Form FDA 2830). Section 607.25 sets forth the information required for establishment registration and blood product listing. Section 607.26 requires, in part, that certain changes, such as ownership or location changes, be submitted to FDA electronically as an amendment to establishment registration within 5 calendar days of such changes using the FDA Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing system, or any future superseding electronic system.

Section 607.31 requires that certain additional blood product listing information be provided upon request by FDA. Section 607.40 requires, in part, that certain foreign blood product establishments comply with the establishment registration and blood product listing information requirements in part 607, subpart B (§§ 607.20 through 607.39, 607.40(a) and (b)), and provide the name and address of the establishment and the name of the individual responsible for submitting establishment registration and blood product listing information (§ 607.40(c)) as well as the name, address, and phone number of its U.S. agent (§ 607.40(d)).

Respondents to this collection of information are human blood and plasma donor centers, blood banks, certain transfusion services, other blood product manufacturers, and independent laboratories that engage in quality control and testing for registered blood product establishments. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information based upon information obtained from the database of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research and FDA experience with the blood establishment registration and product listing requirements. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of responses per respondent 607.20(a), 607.21, 607.22, 607.25, and 607.40. 607.21, 607.22, 607.25, 607.26, 607.31, and 607.40. 607.21, 607.25, 607.30(a), 607.31, and 607.40. 607.22(b) ...................................................... ethrower on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Activity/Form FDA 2830 Initial Registration ..... 115 1 115 1 ...................................... 115 Annual Registration .. 2,612 1 2,612 0.5 (30 minutes) ............. 1,306 Product Listing Update.

    Section 607.22(c) provides that if FDA grants the waiver request, 
FDA may limit its duration and will specify the terms of the waiver and

establishment registration and blood product listing.
    Section 607.26 requires, in part, that certain changes, such as 
ownership or location changes, be submitted to FDA electronically as an

    The burden for this information collection has changed since the 
last OMB approval. Because of a slight increase in the number of 
initial registrations and product listing updates FDA has received 
during the past 3 years, we have increased our reporting burden 
estimate.
