Background FDA is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Submission of Plans for Cigarette Packages and Cigarette Advertisements.’’ The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) (Pub. L. 111–31) was enacted on June 22, 2009, and granted FDA important new authority to regulate the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products. The Tobacco Control Act also amended section 4 of the Federal Cigarette Labeling and Advertising Act (FCLAA) to direct FDA to issue regulations requiring each cigarette package and advertisement to bear a new textual warning label statement accompanied by color graphics depicting the negative health consequences of smoking (section 201 of the Tobacco Control Act). In enacting this legislation, Congress also provided that FDA may adjust the required warnings if FDA found that such a change would promote greater public understanding of the risks associated with the use of tobacco products (section 202 of the Tobacco Control Act). The Tobacco Control Act also modified the requirements of the FCLAA regarding the submission of cigarette plans for the random and equal display and distribution of required warnings on cigarette packaging and quarterly rotation of required warnings in cigarette advertising. It also requires that such cigarette plans be submitted to FDA for review and approval, rather than to the Federal Trade Commission. FDA issued a proposed rule entitled ‘‘Tobacco Products; Required Warnings for Cigarette Packages and Advertisements’’ on August 16, 2019 (84 FR 42754). The proposed rule, once finalized, would specify the color graphics that must accompany the new textual warning statements and establish marketing requirements for cigarette packages and advertisements. The marketing requirements would require, among other things, submission of a cigarette plan that provides for the random and equal display and distribution of the required warnings on cigarette packaging and quarterly rotation of the required warnings in cigarette advertising, as described under section 4 of FCLAA. This draft guidance provides recommendations related to preparing and submitting those cigarette plans. II. Significance of Draft Guidance FDA is issuing this draft guidance consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA regarding the submission of cigarette plans for cigarette packages and advertisements. It does not establish any rights for any person and is not binding on FDA or the public. You can use an alternative approach if it satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. III. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This draft guidance refers to proposed collections of information described in FDA’s August 16, 2019, proposed rule on ‘‘Tobacco Products; Required Warnings for Cigarette Packages and Advertisements’’, which this draft guidance is intended to interpret. The proposed collections of information in the proposed rule are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501–3521). As required by the PRA, FDA has published an analysis of the information collection provisions of the proposed rule (84 FR 42754 at 42787) and has submitted them for OMB approval. IV.

Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501–3521), Federal Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. ‘‘Collection of information’’ is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. 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. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Premarket Notification—21 CFR Part 807, Subpart E OMB Control Number 0910–0120—Extension Section 510(k) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360(k)) and the implementing regulation under part 807 (21 CFR part 807, subpart E) require a person who intends to market a medical device to submit a 510(k) submission to FDA at least 90 days before proposing to begin the introduction, or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce, for commercial distribution of a device intended for human use. Based on the information provided in the E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1 71960 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 249 / Monday, December 30, 2019 / Notices notification, FDA must determine whether the new device is substantially equivalent to a legally marketed device, as defined in § 807.92(a)(3) (21 CFR 807.92(a)(3)). If the device is determined to be not substantially equivalent to a legally marketed device, it must have an approved premarket approval application (PMA), product development protocol, humanitarian device exemption (HDE), request for an evaluation of automatic class III designation (De Novo request), or be reclassified into class I or class II before being marketed (see OMB control numbers 0910–0231, 0910–0332, 0910– 0844, and 0910–0138). FDA makes the final decision of whether a device is substantially equivalent or not substantially equivalent. Section 807.81 states when a 510(k) is required. A 510(k) is required to be submitted by a person who is: (1) Introducing a device to the market for the first time; (2) introducing a device into commercial distribution for the first time by a person who is required to register; or (3) introducing or reintroducing a device that is significantly changed or modified in design, components, method of manufacturer, or the intended use that could affect the safety and effectiveness Under § 807.87(h), each 510(k) submitter must include in the 510(k) either a summary of the information in the 510(k) as required by § 807.92 (510(k) summary) or a statement certifying that the submitter will make available upon request the information in the 510(k) with certain exceptions as per § 807.93 (510(k) statement). Section 745A(b) of the FD&C Act, amended by section 207 of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017 (FDARA) (Pub. L. 115–52), requires that submissions for devices under section 510(k), among other submission types, be submitted in electronic format specified by FDA. In addition, in the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2017 (MDUFA IV) Commitment Letter from the Secretary of Health and Human Services to Congress,1 FDA committed to developing ‘‘electronic submission templates that will serve as guided submission preparation tools for industry to improve submission consistency and enhance efficiency in the review process.’’ The Electronic Submission Template and Resource (eSTAR) is such an electronic submission template for 510(k) submissions to facilitate the preparation of submissions in electronic format. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: of the device. Section 807.87 lists the information required in each 510(k). Form FDA 3514, a summary cover sheet form, assists respondents in categorizing administrative 510(k) information for submission to FDA. This form also assists respondents in categorizing information for other FDA medical device programs such as PMAs, investigational device exemptions, De Novo requests, HDEs, etc. Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (FDAMA) (Pub. L. 105–115) amended section 514 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 360d). Amended section 514 of the FD&C Act allows FDA to recognize consensus standards developed by international and national organizations for use in satisfying portions of device premarket review submissions including 510(k) or other requirements. FDA has published and updated regularly the list of recognized standards since enactment of FDAMA and has allowed 510(k) submitters to certify conformance to recognized standards to meet the requirements of § 807.87. Under § 807.90(a)(3), inquiries regarding a 510(k) submission should be in writing and sent to one of the addresses in § 807.90(a).

Section 807.87 was amended to address requirements for 510(k) submissions supported by clinical data. For clinical investigations conducted in the United States, submitters are required to submit a 1 See 163 CONG. REC. S4729–S4736 (daily ed. August 2, 2017) (Food and Drug Administration User Fee Reauthorization), also available at https:// www.fda.gov/media/102699/download.

For clinical investigations conducted outside the United States, submitters are required to submit the information as described in § 807.87(j)(2). Consistent with our estimate in OMB control number 0910–0741, this revision increases our burden estimate for a E:\FR\FM\30DEN1.SGM 30DEN1 khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 249 / Monday, December 30, 2019 / Notices 510(k) submission by 15 minutes per submission. • We corrected the burden table to include a line for the ‘‘510(k) Summary’’ under § 807.92. This section was inadvertently removed from the previous version of the information collection request (ICR). • We are making available Form FDA 3881 ‘‘Indications for Use’’ that respondents include as part of a medical device 510(k). The information provided via the form is already approved under this ICR. The form does not ask for new information and does not bear on the underlying program or on the hour or cost burden associated with the information collection, rather it provides a fillable, 508-compliant format for respondents to use for the ‘‘Indications for Use’’ portion of their 510(k) submission. • We updated the guidance ‘‘Refuse to Accept Policy for 510(k)s’’ to explicitly recommend providing an Acceptance Checklist in the 510(k) submission. The guidance previously provided the checklist as an example of a tool that FDA staff use when reviewing a 510(k) submission. While it was not explicitly recommended, respondents had used the example and had included it with their 510(k) submission. We believe the checklist can be a helpful tool for both reviewers and 510(k) submitters and have therefore updated the guidance to explicitly recommend inclusion of the checklist in the 510(k) submission. Because most submitters included the checklist on their own initiative and because it may simplify preparation of the 510(k), we do not believe adding the checklist to this ICR affects the overall burden for a 510(k) submission. Additionally, we have updated the checklist to include combination products, as appropriate. The estimated number of responses as updated with current data in this submission, reflects the inclusion of combination products. • We revised and reformatted Form FDA 3514, ‘‘CDRH Premarket Review Submission Cover Sheet,’’ to improve usability and to be inclusive of most medical device product submission types. Form FDA 3514, a summary cover sheet form, assists respondents in categorizing 510(k) information for submission to FDA. This form also assists respondents in categorizing information for other FDA medical device programs. The total burden for Form FDA 3514 and for the 510(k) program is estimated in this ICR. The burden for the other medical device programs listed on Form FDA 3514 are approved under the corresponding product submission ICRs as follows: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:00 Dec 27, 2019 Jkt 250001 premarket approval applications (OMB control number 0910–0231), investigational device exemptions (OMB control number 0910–0078), humanitarian device exemptions (control number 0910–0332), CLIA waivers (OMB control number 0910– 0598), Q-Submissions (OMB control number 0910–0756), De Novo requests (OMB control number 0910–0844), Emergency Use Authorizations (OMB control number 0910–0595), 513(g) requests (OMB control number 0910– 0705); and Appeals (OMB control number 0910–0738). • Certain revisions to Form FDA 3514, as previously described, eliminate the need for Form FDA 3654, ‘‘Standards Data Report for 510(k)s.’’ Additionally, the ability for Form FDA 3514 to be expandable for the number of standards cited will increase awareness of actual standards in a submission and how they were used on a single form (compared to including several Form FDA 3654 documents). In the rare occasions where the sponsor elects to not use Form FDA 3514 for standards, this would not have any effect on the review outcome, with regard to standards, as the form serves as a means to identify what standards are cited, how they are used, and where in the submission they are located. • We have removed Form FDA 3541, ‘‘Status Request.’’ In practice, Form FDA 3541 is rarely used. We have adjusted the burden estimate to reflect this removal. Under § 807.90(a)(3), all inquiries regarding a premarket notification submission should be in writing and sent to one of the addresses listed in § 807.90(a). • We have added burden estimates for the eSTAR and eSTAR setup (onetime burden). Under section 745A(b) of FD&C Act, amended by section 207 of FDARA (Pub. L. 115–52), and consistent with the MDUFA IV Commitment Letter, FDA has developed the eSTAR (eSTAR, Form FDA 4062) for 510(k) submissions to facilitate the preparation of submissions in electronic format. We expect to receive approximately 100 510(k) submissions via eSTAR per year. We estimate that eSTAR submissions will take approximately 40 hours per submission. Additionally, we’ve estimated a one-time setup burden of 5 minutes for approximately 80 new eSTAR users annually. The adjustments and revisions previously mentioned have resulted in a 39,473-hour decrease in the total hour burden estimate since the last OMB approval.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3521), Federal 
Agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. 
``Collection of information'' is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 
1320.3(c) and includes Agency requests or requirements that members of 
the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a 
third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) 
requires Federal Agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal 
Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including 
each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, 
before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. 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.
Premarket Notification--21 CFR Part 807, Subpart E OMB Control Number 
0910-0120--Extension
    Section 510(k) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C 
Act) (21 U.S.C. 360(k)) and the implementing regulation under part 807 
(21 CFR part 807, subpart E) require a person who intends to market a 
medical device to submit a 510(k) submission to FDA at least 90 days 
before proposing to begin the introduction, or delivery for 
introduction into interstate commerce, for commercial distribution of a 
device intended for human use. Based on the information provided in the

[[Page 71960]]

notification, FDA must determine whether the new device is 
substantially equivalent to a legally marketed device, as defined in 
Sec.  807.92(a)(3) (21 CFR 807.92(a)(3)). If the device is determined 
to be not substantially equivalent to a legally marketed device, it 
must have an approved premarket approval application (PMA), product 
development protocol, humanitarian device exemption (HDE), request for 
an evaluation of automatic class III designation (De Novo request), or 
be reclassified into class I or class II before being marketed (see OMB 
control numbers 0910-0231, 0910-0332, 0910-0844, and 0910-0138). FDA 
makes the final decision of whether a device is substantially 
equivalent or not substantially equivalent.
    Section 807.81 states when a 510(k) is required. A 510(k) is 
required to be submitted by a person who is: (1) Introducing a device 
to the market for the first time; (2) introducing a device into 
commercial distribution for the first time by a person who is required 
to register; or (3) introducing or reintroducing a device that is 
significantly changed or modified in design, components, method of 
manufacturer, or the intended use that could affect the safety and 
effectiveness of the device. Section 807.87 lists the information 
required in each 510(k).
    Form FDA 3514, a summary cover sheet form, assists respondents in 
categorizing administrative 510(k) information for submission to FDA. 
This form also assists respondents in categorizing information for 
other FDA medical device programs such as PMAs, investigational device 
exemptions, De Novo requests, HDEs, etc.
    Section 204 of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act 
of 1997 (FDAMA) (Pub. L. 105-115) amended section 514 of the FD&C Act 
(21 U.S.C. 360d). Amended section 514 of the FD&C Act allows FDA to 
recognize consensus standards developed by international and national 
organizations for use in satisfying portions of device premarket review 
submissions including 510(k) or other requirements. FDA has published 
and updated regularly the list of recognized standards since enactment 
of FDAMA and has allowed 510(k) submitters to certify conformance to 
recognized standards to meet the requirements of Sec.  807.87.
    Under Sec.  807.90(a)(3), inquiries regarding a 510(k) submission 
should be in writing and sent to one of the addresses in Sec.  
807.90(a).
    Under Sec.  807.87(h), each 510(k) submitter must include in the 
510(k) either a summary of the information in the 510(k) as required by 
Sec.  807.92 (510(k) summary) or a statement certifying that the 
submitter will make available upon request the information in the 
510(k) with certain exceptions as per Sec.  807.93 (510(k) statement).
    Section 745A(b) of the FD&C Act, amended by section 207 of the FDA 
Reauthorization Act of 2017 (FDARA) (Pub. L. 115-52), requires that 
submissions for devices under section 510(k), among other submission 
types, be submitted in electronic format specified by FDA. In addition, 
in the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2017 (MDUFA IV) Commitment 
Letter from the Secretary of Health and Human Services to Congress,\1\ 
FDA committed to developing ``electronic submission templates that will 
serve as guided submission preparation tools for industry to improve 
submission consistency and enhance efficiency in the review process.'' 
The Electronic Submission Template and Resource (eSTAR) is such an 
electronic submission template for 510(k) submissions to facilitate the 
preparation of submissions in electronic format.

\1\ There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.
\2\ Numbers have been rounded.

    Upon review of this information collection, we have made the 
following changes:
     We have updated the burden estimate consistent with new 
provisions in Sec.  807.87(j) regarding ``Human Subject Protection; 
Acceptance of Data from Clinical Investigations for Medical Devices'' 
(83 FR 7366; February 21, 2018) (approved under OMB control number 
0910-0741). Section 807.87 was amended to address requirements for 
510(k) submissions supported by clinical data. For clinical 
investigations conducted in the United States, submitters are required 
to submit a statement as described in Sec.  807.87(j)(1). For clinical 
investigations conducted outside the United States, submitters are 
required to submit the information as described in Sec.  807.87(j)(2). 
Consistent with our estimate in OMB control number 0910-0741, this 
revision increases our burden estimate for a

[[Page 71961]]

510(k) submission by 15 minutes per submission.
     We corrected the burden table to include a line for the 
``510(k) Summary'' under Sec.  807.92. This section was inadvertently 
removed from the previous version of the information collection request 
(ICR).
     We are making available Form FDA 3881 ``Indications for 
Use'' that respondents include as part of a medical device 510(k). The 
information provided via the form is already approved under this ICR. 
The form does not ask for new information and does not bear on the 
underlying program or on the hour or cost burden associated with the 
information collection, rather it provides a fillable, 508-compliant 
format for respondents to use for the ``Indications for Use'' portion 
of their 510(k) submission.
     We updated the guidance ``Refuse to Accept Policy for 
510(k)s'' to explicitly recommend providing an Acceptance Checklist in 
the 510(k) submission. The guidance previously provided the checklist 
as an example of a tool that FDA staff use when reviewing a 510(k) 
submission. While it was not explicitly recommended, respondents had 
used the example and had included it with their 510(k) submission. We 
believe the checklist can be a helpful tool for both reviewers and 
510(k) submitters and have therefore updated the guidance to explicitly 
recommend inclusion of the checklist in the 510(k) submission. Because 
most submitters included the checklist on their own initiative and 
because it may simplify preparation of the 510(k), we do not believe 
adding the checklist to this ICR affects the overall burden for a 
510(k) submission. Additionally, we have updated the checklist to 
include combination products, as appropriate. The estimated number of 
responses as updated with current data in this submission, reflects the 
inclusion of combination products.
     We revised and reformatted Form FDA 3514, ``CDRH Premarket 
Review Submission Cover Sheet,'' to improve usability and to be 
inclusive of most medical device product submission types. Form FDA 
3514, a summary cover sheet form, assists respondents in categorizing 
510(k) information for submission to FDA. This form also assists 
respondents in categorizing information for other FDA medical device 
programs. The total burden for Form FDA 3514 and for the 510(k) program 
is estimated in this ICR. The burden for the other medical device 
programs listed on Form FDA 3514 are approved under the corresponding 
product submission ICRs as follows: premarket approval applications 
(OMB control number 0910-0231), investigational device exemptions (OMB 
control number 0910-0078), humanitarian device exemptions (control 
number 0910-0332), CLIA waivers (OMB control number 0910-0598), Q-
Submissions (OMB control number 0910-0756), De Novo requests (OMB 
control number 0910-0844), Emergency Use Authorizations (OMB control 
number 0910-0595), 513(g) requests (OMB control number 0910-0705); and 
Appeals (OMB control number 0910-0738).
     Certain revisions to Form FDA 3514, as previously 
described, eliminate the need for Form FDA 3654, ``Standards Data 
Report for 510(k)s.'' Additionally, the ability for Form FDA 3514 to be 
expandable for the number of standards cited will increase awareness of 
actual standards in a submission and how they were used on a single 
form (compared to including several Form FDA 3654 documents). In the 
rare occasions where the sponsor elects to not use Form FDA 3514 for 
standards, this would not have any effect on the review outcome, with 
regard to standards, as the form serves as a means to identify what 
standards are cited, how they are used, and where in the submission 
they are located.
     We have removed Form FDA 3541, ``Status Request.'' In 
practice, Form FDA 3541 is rarely used. We have adjusted the burden 
estimate to reflect this removal. Under Sec.  807.90(a)(3), all 
inquiries regarding a premarket notification submission should be in 
writing and sent to one of the addresses listed in Sec.  807.90(a).
     We have added burden estimates for the eSTAR and eSTAR 
setup (one-time burden). Under section 745A(b) of FD&C Act, amended by 
section 207 of FDARA (Pub. L. 115-52), and consistent with the MDUFA IV 
Commitment Letter, FDA has developed the eSTAR (eSTAR, Form FDA 4062) 
for 510(k) submissions to facilitate the preparation of submissions in 
electronic format. We expect to receive approximately 100 510(k) 
submissions via eSTAR per year. We estimate that eSTAR submissions will 
take approximately 40 hours per submission. Additionally, we've 
estimated a one-time setup burden of 5 minutes for approximately 80 new 
eSTAR users annually.
    The adjustments and revisions previously mentioned have resulted in 
a 39,473-hour decrease in the total hour burden estimate since the last 
OMB approval.
