We are now issuing draft guidance for industry on BE recommendations for generic olodaterol hydrochloride; tiotropium bromide inhalation spray (‘‘Draft Guidance for Olodaterol Hydrochloride; Tiotropium Bromide’’). In October 2012, Boehringer Ingelheim, manufacturer of the reference listed drug SPIRIVA HANDIHALER, NDA 21395, submitted a citizen petition requesting, among other things, that FDA adopt and apply certain requirements in its review of any proposed generic and follow-on versions of SPIRIVA HANDIHALER or any other Boehringer Ingelheim oral inhalation product containing the active ingredient tiotropium bromide under section 505(j) and (b)(2), respectively, of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 355(j) and (b)(2)) (Docket No. FDA–2012–P–1072). Boehringer Ingelheim submitted a supplement to the citizen petition in January 2021 further expanding on its initial petition requests. FDA is reviewing the issues raised in the petition and supplement and will consider any comments on the draft guidance entitled ‘‘Draft Guidance for Olodaterol Hydrochloride; Tiotropium Bromide’’ before responding to Boehringer’s citizen petition. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jul 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 The draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on the information and data to demonstrate BE to support ANDAs for tiotropium bromide inhalation spray. 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. II. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 FDA tentatively concludes that this draft guidance contains no collection of information. Therefore, clearance by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 is not required. III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Section 307 of FSMA (Pub. L. 111– 353), Accreditation of Third-Party Auditors, amended the FD&C Act to create a new provision, section 808, under the same name. Section 808 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 384d) directs FDA to establish a program for accreditation of third-party certification bodies 1 conducting food safety audits and issuing food and facility certifications to eligible foreign entities (including registered foreign food facilities) that meet our applicable requirements. Under this provision, we established a system for FDA to recognize accreditation bodies to accredit certification bodies, except for limited circumstances in which we may directly accredit certification bodies to participate in the third-party certification program. Section 808(c)(8) of the FD&C Act directs FDA to establish a reimbursement (user fee) program by which we assess fees and require reimbursement for the work FDA performs to establish and administer the third-party certification program under section 808 of the FD&C Act. The user fee program for the third-party certification program was established by a final rule entitled ‘‘Amendments to Accreditation of Third-Party Certification Bodies To Conduct Food Safety Audits and To Issue Certifications To Provide for the User Fee Program’’ (81 FR 90186, December 14, 2016). The FSMA FY 2022 third-party certification program user fee rate announced in this notice is effective on October 1, 2021 and will remain in effect through September 30, 2022. 1 For the reasons explained in the third-party certification final rule (80 FR 74570 at 74578– 74579, November 27, 2015), and for consistency with the implementing regulations for the thirdparty certification program in 21 CFR parts 1, 11, and 16, this notice uses the term ‘‘third-party certification body’’ rather than the term ‘‘third-party auditor’’ used in section 808(a)(3) of the FD&C Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In the Federal Register of June 11, 2010 (75 FR 33311), FDA 
announced the availability of a guidance for industry entitled 
``Bioequivalence Recommendations for Specific Products,'' which 
explained the process that would be used to make product-specific 
guidances available to the public on FDA's website at https://www.fda.gov/drugs/guidance-compliance-regulatory-information/guidances-drugs.
    As described in that guidance, FDA adopted this process to develop 
and disseminate product-specific guidances and to provide a meaningful 
opportunity for the public to consider and comment on the guidances. 
This notice announces the availability of a draft guidance on a generic 
olodaterol hydrochloride; tiotropium bromide inhalation spray.
    FDA initially approved new drug application (NDA) 206756 for 
STIOLTO RESPIMAT (olodaterol hydrochloride; tiotropium bromide 
inhalation spray) in May 2015. We are now issuing draft guidance for 
industry on BE recommendations for generic olodaterol hydrochloride; 
tiotropium bromide inhalation spray (``Draft Guidance for Olodaterol 
Hydrochloride; Tiotropium Bromide'').
    In October 2012, Boehringer Ingelheim, manufacturer of the 
reference listed drug SPIRIVA HANDIHALER, NDA 21395, submitted a 
citizen petition requesting, among other things, that FDA adopt and 
apply certain requirements in its review of any proposed generic and 
follow-on versions of SPIRIVA HANDIHALER or any other Boehringer 
Ingelheim oral inhalation product containing the active ingredient 
tiotropium bromide under section 505(j) and (b)(2), respectively, of 
the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 355(j) and (b)(2)) 
(Docket No. FDA-2012-P-1072). Boehringer Ingelheim submitted a 
supplement to the citizen petition in January 2021 further expanding on 
its initial petition requests. FDA is reviewing the issues raised in 
the petition and supplement and will consider any comments on the draft 
guidance entitled ``Draft Guidance for Olodaterol Hydrochloride; 
Tiotropium Bromide'' before responding to Boehringer's citizen 
petition.
    The draft guidance is being issued consistent with FDA's good 
guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115). The draft guidance, when 
finalized, will represent the current thinking of FDA on the 
information and data to demonstrate BE to support ANDAs for tiotropium 
bromide inhalation spray. 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.

II. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995

    FDA tentatively concludes that this draft guidance contains no 
collection of information. Therefore, clearance by the Office of 
Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 is not 
required.

III. Electronic Access

    Persons with access to the internet may obtain the draft guidance 
at https://www.fda.gov/drugs/guidance-compliance-regulatory-information/guidances-drugs, https://www.fda.gov/regulatory-information/search-fda-guidance-documents, or https://www.regulations.gov.
