To comply with this 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. Postmarket Surveillance of Medical Devices—21 CFR Part 822 OMB Control Number 0910–0449— Extension Section 522 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360l) authorizes FDA to require a manufacturer to conduct postmarket surveillance (PS) of any device that meets the criteria set forth in the statute. The PS regulation establishes procedures that FDA uses to approve and disapprove PS plans. The regulation provides instructions to manufacturers, so they know what information is required in a PS plan submission. FDA reviews PS plan submissions in accordance with 21 CFR 822.15 through 822.19 of the regulation, which describe the grounds for approving or disapproving a PS plan. In addition, the PS regulation provides instructions to manufacturers to submit interim and final reports in accordance with § 822.38 (21 CFR 822.38). Respondents to this collection of information are those manufacturers that require PS of their products. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of respondents Activity/21 CFR section Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours PS submission (822.9 and 822.10) .....................................

Postmarket Surveillance of Medical Devices--21 CFR Part 822

OMB Control Number 0910-0449--Extension

    Section 522 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 
360l) authorizes FDA to require a manufacturer to conduct postmarket 
surveillance (PS) of any device that meets the criteria set forth in 
the statute. The PS regulation establishes procedures that FDA uses to 
approve and disapprove PS plans. The regulation provides instructions 
to manufacturers, so they know what information is required in a PS 
plan submission. FDA reviews PS plan submissions in accordance with 21 
CFR 822.15 through 822.19 of the regulation, which describe the grounds 
for approving or disapproving a PS plan. In addition, the PS regulation 
provides instructions to manufacturers to submit interim and final 
reports in accordance with Sec.  822.38 (21 CFR 822.38). Respondents to 
this collection of information are those manufacturers that require PS 
of their products.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as

    Explanation of Recordkeeping Burden Estimate: FDA expects that at

requirement using information or data they already have. For purposes 
of calculating burden, however, FDA has assumed that each PS order can

the number of submissions we received over the last few years.
