SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 I. Background FDA is announcing the availability of a revised draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Assessing Adhesion With Transdermal and Topical Delivery Systems for ANDAs.’’ This revised draft guidance supersedes the draft guidance entitled ‘‘Assessing Adhesion with Transdermal Delivery Systems and Topical Patches for ANDAs,’’ which was announced in the Federal Register on June 1, 2016 (81 FR 35025). FDA received six comments on the draft guidance, which were considered before publication of this revised draft guidance. This revised draft guidance provides recommendations for the design and conduct of studies evaluating the adhesive performance of a TDS submitted in support of an ANDA. Depending on the objectives of a TDS product development program, applicants may choose to evaluate TDS adhesion in studies performed to evaluate TDS adhesion only or in studies performed with a combined purpose (e.g., for the simultaneous evaluation of adhesion and BE with PK endpoints). FDA recommends that applicants consult this revised draft guidance in conjunction with any relevant product-specific guidances for industry, when considering the design and conduct of studies that may be appropriate to support the BE of a proposed generic TDS product to its reference listed drug and/or reference standard product. During the product’s labeled wear period, a TDS is reasonably expected to encounter torsional strains arising from VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:20 Oct 09, 2018 Jkt 247001 body movements, changes in environmental temperature or humidity such as the daily exposure to water (e.g., during routine showering), and contact with clothing, bedding, or other surfaces. TDS products that do not maintain consistent and uniform adhesion with the skin during the labeled wear period can experience varying degrees of TDS detachment, including complete detachment, at different times during the product wear. When the adhesion characteristics of a TDS are not sufficiently robust, as evaluated against its labeled conditions of use, the TDS may exhibit variability in the surface area that is in contact with the skin. For example, when a TDS is partially detached, there may be uncertainty about the resulting drug delivery profile and, hence, uncertainty about the rate and extent of drug absorption from the TDS. When the potential for complete detachment of the TDS increases, the risk of unintentional exposure of the drug product to an unintended recipient (e.g., a household member who may be a child) also increases. This revised draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The revised draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on ‘‘Assessing Adhesion With Transdermal and Topical Delivery Systems for ANDAs.’’ 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. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This revised 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 314 have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0001. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    In the Federal Register of June 11, 2010 (75 FR 33311), FDA 
announced the availability of a guidance for industry entitled 
``Bioequivalence Recommendations for Specific Products'' that explained 
the process that would be used to make product-specific guidances 
available to the public on FDA's website at https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/Guidances/default.htm.
    As described in that guidance, FDA adopted this process as a means 
to develop and disseminate product-specific guidances and provide a 
meaningful opportunity for the public to consider and comment on those 
guidances. Under that process, draft guidances are posted on FDA's 
website and announced periodically in the Federal Register. The public 
is encouraged to submit comments on those recommendations within 60 
days of their announcement in the Federal Register. FDA considers any 
comments received and either publishes final guidances or publishes 
revised draft guidances for comment. Guidances were last announced in 
the Federal Register on September 14, 2018.
    This notice announces new or revised draft product-specific 
guidances that are being posted on FDA's website concurrently with 
FDA's new draft guidance for industry entitled ``Assessing the 
Irritation and Sensitization Potential of Transdermal and Topical 
Delivery Systems for ANDAs'' and FDA's revised draft guidance for 
industry entitled ``Assessing Adhesion With Transdermal and Topical 
Delivery Systems for ANDAs.'' FDA recommends that applicants consult 
the relevant product-specific guidance, in conjunction with the 
guidances referenced above, when considering the design and conduct of 
studies that may be appropriate to support a topical delivery system 
product intended for submission in an ANDA.

II. Drug Products for Which New Draft Product-Specific Guidances Are 
Available

    FDA is announcing the availability of new draft product-specific 
guidances for industry for drug products containing the following 
active ingredients:

    For a complete history of previously published Federal Register 
notices related to product-specific guidances, go to https://www.regulations.gov and enter Docket No. FDA-2007-D-0369.
    These draft guidances are being issued consistent with FDA's good 
guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). These draft guidances, 
when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on, among 
other things, the product-specific design of BE studies to support 
ANDAs. They do not establish any rights for any person and are 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.
