Electronic User Fee Payment Request Forms--Form FDA 3913 and Form FDA 
3914

OMB Control Number 0910-0805--Extension

    Form FDA 3913, User Fee Payment Refund Request, is designed to 
provide the minimum necessary information for FDA to review and process 
a user fee payment refund. The information collected includes the 
organization, contact, and payment information. The information is used 
to determine the reason for the refund, the refund amount, and who to 
contact if there are any questions regarding the refund request. A 
submission of the User Fee Payment Refund Request form does not 
guarantee that a refund will be issued. FDA estimates an average of 
0.40 hours per response, including the time to review instructions, 
search existing data sources, gather and maintain the data needed, and 
complete and review the collection of information. The estimated hours 
are based on past FDA experience with user fee payment refund requests.

determine the reason for the transfer, how the transfer should be 
performed, and who to contact if there are any questions regarding the 
transfer request. A submission of the User Fee Payment Transfer Request 
form does not guarantee that a transfer will be performed. FDA 
estimates an average of 0.25 hours per response, including the time to 
review instructions, search existing data sources, gather and maintain 
the data needed, and complete and review the collection of information. 
FDA estimated hours are

[[Page 22495]]

based on past FDA experience with user fee payment transfer requests.
    In fiscal year 2017, approximately 871 user fee payment transfers

Drug User Fee Act, 1 for Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act, 1 for 
Biosimilar Drug User Fee Act, 163 for Generic Drug User Fee Amendments, 
692 for Medical Device User Fee Amendments, and 6 for Prescription Drug

submission. Transfer request forms target respondents who submitted 
payment for a user fee cover sheet or invoice and need that payment to

\1\ There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of
  information.

    We have adjusted our burden estimate, which has resulted in a 
decrease to the currently approved burden. New information technology 
applications have more accurately calculated the number of registrants 
of drug facilities/food facilities/medical device facilities/medicated 
feed facilities, and we have therefore revised the number of 
respondents to the information collection.

    Dated: May 10, 2018.
