The regulatory review period determinations for BRIVIACT ORAL TABLETS and BRIVIACT INJECTION are published in this issue of the Federal Register. 2. The date the application was initially submitted with respect to the human drug product under section 505(b) of the FD&C Act: November 20, 2014. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that the NDA for BRIVIACT ORAL SOLUTION (NDA 205838) was initially submitted on November 20, 2014. 3. For a drug recommended for controls under the CSA, the later of the date the NDA was approved under section 505 of the FD&C Act or the date of issuance of the interim final rule controlling the drug: May 12, 2016. FDA has verified the applicant’s claim that NDA 205838 was approved on February 18, 2016. FDA has also verified that the date of issuance of the interim final rule controlling the drug, placing BRIVIACT ORAL SOLUTION (brivaracetam) in schedule V of the CSA as revised by the Improving Regulatory Transparency for New Medical Therapies Act, was May 12, 2016.
