SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:35 Jun 24, 2019 Jkt 247001 OMB Control Number 0910–0032— Extension Under section 512(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360b(b)(1)), any person may file a new animal drug application (NADA) seeking our approval to legally market a new animal drug. Section 512(b)(1) of the FD&C Act sets forth the information required to be submitted in a NADA. Sections 514.1, 514.4, 514.6, 514.8, and 514.11 of our regulations (21 CFR 514.1, 514.4, 514.6, 514.8, and 514.11) further specify the information that the NADA must contain. The application must include safety and effectiveness data, proposed labeling, product manufacturing information, and where necessary, complete information on food safety (including microbial food safety) and any methods used to determine residues of drug chemicals in edible tissue from food producing animals. FDA Guidance for Industry #152 outlines a risk assessment approach for evaluating the microbial food safety of antimicrobial new animal drugs. We request that applicants utilize Form FDA 356V, as appropriate, to ensure efficient and accurate processing of information to support new animal drug approval. Under section 512(b)(3) of the FD&C Act, any person intending to file a NADA or supplemental NADA or a request for an investigational exemption under section 512(j) of the FD&C Act is entitled to one or more conferences with us prior to making a submission. Section 514.5 of our regulations (21 CFR 514.5) describes the procedures for requesting, conducting, and documenting presubmission conferences. We have found that these meetings have increased the efficiency of the drug development and drug review processes. We encourage sponsors to submit data for review at the most appropriate and productive times in the drug development process. Rather than submitting all data for review as part of a complete application, we have found that the submission of data supporting discrete technical sections during the investigational phase of the new animal drug is the most appropriate and productive. This ‘‘phased review’’ of data submissions has created efficiencies for both us and the animal pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, we have found that various uses of veterinary master files have increased the efficiency of the drug PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 development and drug review processes for both us and the animal pharmaceutical industry. A veterinary master file is a repository for submission to FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine of confidential detailed information about facilities, processes, or articles used in the manufacturing, processing, packaging, and storing of one or more veterinary drugs. The benefits of veterinary master files include confidential exchange of information with FDA, a process for reporting information outside of a NADA or an investigational new animal drug (INAD) file, as well as an opportunity for increased communication with FDA during early stages of product development. Respondents may choose to use veterinary master files to provide and organize confidential detailed information to the Agency. A holder of a veterinary master file may also authorize other parties to reference information in the veterinary master file without disclosing information in the file to those parties. Veterinary master files can be used as repositories for information that can be referenced in multiple submissions to the Agency, thus minimizing paperwork burden. Veterinary master files are already used by the animal pharmaceutical industry in support of information being submitted for NADAs, abbreviated new animal drug applications (ANADAs), INAD files, and generic investigational new animal drug (JINAD) files. In previous information collection requests, we have included the time necessary to compile and submit such information to veterinary master files within the burden estimates provided for applications and amended applications (for NADAs and INAD files) and abbreviated applications and amended abbreviated applications (for ANADAs and JINAD files), respectively. We are now combining the time necessary to compile and submit such information to veterinary master files within the burden estimates provided in this collection of information. We are also developing new approaches to permit more complex uses of veterinary master files to facilitate the development of animal drug products. We expect respondents will want to use veterinary master files to submit information to us for review and consultation during all phases of animal drug product development (including product development that precedes the establishment of an INAD file or the submission of a NADA). This information could include information about processes, facilities, or articles used in the manufacturing, processing, E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1 29867 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 122 / Tuesday, June 25, 2019 / Notices packaging, and storing of veterinary drugs and drug substances. Information submitted to FDA through a veterinary master file could also include drug characterization, methods, protocols, or other relevant information. In this request for OMB review, we seek approval of an increased use of veterinary master files by respondents to submit additional information to us for review and consultation during all phases of animal drug product development (including product development that precedes the establishment of an INAD file or the submission of a NADA). To account for an expected increase in reporting burden hours associated with the increased use of veterinary master files by respondents, we are separately estimating in table 1, row 10, the burden of the use of veterinary master files during all phases of product development (including product development that precedes the establishment of an INAD file or the submission of a NADA). Finally, § 558.5(i) of our regulations (21 CFR 558.5(i)) describes the procedure for requesting a waiver of the labeling requirements of § 558.5(h) in the event that there is evidence to indicate that it is unlikely a new animal drug would be used in the manufacture of a liquid medicated feed. The reporting associated with NADAs and related submissions is necessary to ensure that new animal drugs are in compliance with section 512(b)(1) of the FD&C Act. We use the information collected to review the data, labeling, and manufacturing controls and procedures to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the proposed new animal drug. Description of Respondents: Respondents include persons developing, manufacturing, and/or researching new animal drugs. In the Federal Register of February 15, 2019 (84 FR 4479), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.

review and clearance.

Reporting Associated With New Animal Drug Applications (NADA) and 
Veterinary Master Files--21 CFR 514.1, 514.4, 514.5, 514.6, 514.8, 
514.11, and 558.5

OMB Control Number 0910-0032--Extension

    Under section 512(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act 
(FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360b(b)(1)), any person may file a new animal 
drug application (NADA) seeking our approval to legally market a new 
animal drug. Section 512(b)(1) of the FD&C Act sets forth the 
information required to be submitted in a NADA. Sections 514.1, 514.4, 
514.6, 514.8, and 514.11 of our regulations (21 CFR 514.1, 514.4, 
514.6, 514.8, and 514.11) further specify the information that the NADA 
must contain. The application must include safety and effectiveness 
data, proposed labeling, product manufacturing information, and where 
necessary, complete information on food safety (including microbial 
food safety) and any methods used to determine residues of drug 
chemicals in edible tissue from food producing animals. FDA Guidance 
for Industry #152 outlines a risk assessment approach for evaluating 
the microbial food safety of antimicrobial new animal drugs. We request 
that applicants utilize Form FDA 356V, as appropriate, to ensure 
efficient and accurate processing of information to support new animal 
drug approval.
    Under section 512(b)(3) of the FD&C Act, any person intending to 
file a NADA or supplemental NADA or a request for an investigational 
exemption under section 512(j) of the FD&C Act is entitled to one or 
more conferences with us prior to making a submission. Section 514.5 of 
our regulations (21 CFR 514.5) describes the procedures for requesting, 
conducting, and documenting presubmission conferences. We have found 
that these meetings have increased the efficiency of the drug 
development and drug review processes. We encourage sponsors to submit 
data for review at the most appropriate and productive times in the 
drug development process. Rather than submitting all data for review as 
part of a complete application, we have found that the submission of 
data supporting discrete technical sections during the investigational 
phase of the new animal drug is the most appropriate and productive. 
This ``phased review'' of data submissions has created efficiencies for 
both us and the animal pharmaceutical industry.
    Additionally, we have found that various uses of veterinary master 
files have increased the efficiency of the drug development and drug 
review processes for both us and the animal pharmaceutical industry. A 
veterinary master file is a repository for submission to FDA's Center 
for Veterinary Medicine of confidential detailed information about 
facilities, processes, or articles used in the manufacturing, 
processing, packaging, and storing of one or more veterinary drugs. The 
benefits of veterinary master files include confidential exchange of

NADA or an investigational new animal drug (INAD) file, as well as an 
opportunity for increased communication with FDA during early stages of 
product development. Respondents may choose to use veterinary master

parties to reference information in the veterinary master file without 
disclosing information in the file to those parties. Veterinary master

paperwork burden. Veterinary master files are already used by the 
animal pharmaceutical industry in support of information being 
submitted for NADAs, abbreviated new animal drug applications (ANADAs), 
INAD files, and generic investigational new animal drug (JINAD) files. 
In previous information collection requests, we have included the time 
necessary to compile and submit such information to veterinary master 
files within the burden estimates provided for applications and amended 
applications (for NADAs and INAD files) and abbreviated applications 
and amended abbreviated applications (for ANADAs and JINAD files), 
respectively. We are now combining the time necessary to compile and 
submit such information to veterinary master files within the burden 
estimates provided in this collection of information.
    We are also developing new approaches to permit more complex uses 
of veterinary master files to facilitate the development of animal drug 
products. We expect respondents will want to use veterinary master

all phases of animal drug product development (including product 
development that precedes the establishment of an INAD file or the 
submission of a NADA). This information could include information about 
processes, facilities, or articles used in the manufacturing, 
processing,

[[Page 29867]]

packaging, and storing of veterinary drugs and drug substances. 
Information submitted to FDA through a veterinary master file could 
also include drug characterization, methods, protocols, or other 
relevant information. In this request for OMB review, we seek approval 
of an increased use of veterinary master files by respondents to submit 
additional information to us for review and consultation during all 
phases of animal drug product development (including product 
development that precedes the establishment of an INAD file or the 
submission of a NADA). To account for an expected increase in reporting 
burden hours associated with the increased use of veterinary master 
files by respondents, we are separately estimating in table 1, row 10, 
the burden of the use of veterinary master files during all phases of 
product development (including product development that precedes the 
establishment of an INAD file or the submission of a NADA).
    Finally, Sec.  558.5(i) of our regulations (21 CFR 558.5(i)) 
describes the procedure for requesting a waiver of the labeling 
requirements of Sec.  558.5(h) in the event that there is evidence to 
indicate that it is unlikely a new animal drug would be used in the 
manufacture of a liquid medicated feed.
    The reporting associated with NADAs and related submissions is 
necessary to ensure that new animal drugs are in compliance with 
section 512(b)(1) of the FD&C Act. We use the information collected to 
review the data, labeling, and manufacturing controls and procedures to 
evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the proposed new animal drug.
    Description of Respondents: Respondents include persons developing, 
manufacturing, and/or researching new animal drugs.
    In the Federal Register of February 15, 2019 (84 FR 4479), FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. No comments were received.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as

    Based on a review of the information collection since our last

estimates. However, as discussed, we have separately estimated the 
burden of the ``Use of veterinary master files during all phases of 
product development (including product development that precedes the 
establishment of an INAD file or the submission of an NADA)'' in table 
1, line 10. We base our estimate of the total annual responses for the 
use of veterinary master files on such uses initiated during calendar 
year 2018. We base our estimate of the hours per response upon our 
experience with the respondents' use of veterinary master files. We 
estimate that the time it takes to compile information and submit it to 
a veterinary master file will vary from 1 to 50 hours depending on the 
complexity of the information; therefore, we are estimating on average 
the burden per response to be 20 hours. Accordingly, our estimated 
burden for the information collection reflects an overall increase of 
124 hours and a corresponding increase of 14 responses.
