Download as PDF 4078 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 31 / Thursday, February 14, 2019 / Notices requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on these topics: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology. Request for Recognition of a Voluntary Consensus Standard OMB Control Number 0910–NEW The draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘CDER’s Program for the Recognition of Voluntary Consensus Standards Related to Pharmaceutical Quality’’ provides guidance to industry about the procedures the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research follows when a request for recognition of a voluntary consensus standard is received. The guidance outlines justifications for why a standard may be recognized wholly, partly, or not at all. The guidance also provides that any interested party may request recognition of a standard. Specifically, this process will allow CDER to: • Receive a candidate consensus standard, with relevant information (e.g., the scope of the standard and the purpose), from internal or external parties for informal recognition. • Determine whether to informally recognize a standard in whole or in part following an internal scientific evaluation. • List the informally recognized standards in a publicly searchable database on CDER’s website, accompanied by an information sheet describing the scope and the extent of CDER’s informal recognition of that standard and any other relevant information about it. Request for Recognition of a Voluntary Consensus Standard We estimate that FDA will receive nine requests annually. We estimate that each request will take less than 1 hour to prepare. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Activity Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours Request for recognition of a voluntary consensus standard 9 1 9 1 9 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.
