OMB Control Number 0910-0393-Extension

    FDA regulations require the distribution of patient labeling, 
called Medication Guides, for certain prescription human drug and 
biological products used primarily on an outpatient basis that pose a 
serious and significant public health concern. Medication Guides 
provide patients the most important information about drug products, 
including the drugs' approved uses, contraindications, adverse drug 
reactions, and cautions for specific populations. These regulations are 
intended to improve the public health by providing information 
necessary for patients to use certain medications safely and 
effectively.
    The regulations contain the following reporting requirements that 
are subject to the PRA:
     21 CFR 208.20--Applicants must submit draft Medication 
Guides for FDA approval according to the prescribed content and format.
     21 CFR 314.70(b)(3)(ii) and 21 CFR 601.12(f)--Application 
holders must submit changes to Medication Guides as supplements to 
their applications to FDA for approval.
     21 CFR 208.24(c)--Each distributor or packer who receives 
Medication Guides, or the means to produce Medication Guides, from a 
manufacturer under paragraph (b) of this section shall provide those 
Medication Guides to each authorized dispenser to whom it ships a drug 
product.
     21 CFR 208.24(e)--Each authorized dispenser of a 
prescription drug product for which a Medication Guide is required must 
provide a Medication Guide directly to each patient when dispensing the 
product to the patient or to the patient's agent, unless an exemption 
applies under 21 CFR 208.26.
     21 CFR 208.26(a)--Requests may be submitted for an 
exemption or a deferral from particular Medication Guide content or 
format requirements.

  information.
* 3 minutes.

    Our estimated annual reporting burden for the information 
collection reflects an increase of 51 respondents and responses and a 
corresponding overall increase of 4,664 total hours. We attribute this 
adjustment to an increase in the number of submissions we received over 
the last few years. Based on a review of the information collection 
since our last request for OMB approval, we have made no adjustments to 
our annual third-party disclosure burden estimate, except for 
correction in calculations.
