Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 27, 2021 / Notices 10.115(f)(4), CDRH would appreciate suggestions that CDRH revise or withdraw an already existing guidance document. We request that the suggestion clearly explain why the guidance document should be revised or withdrawn and, if applicable, how it should be revised. While we are requesting feedback on the list of previously issued final guidances located in the annual agenda website, feedback on any guidance is appreciated and will be considered. In FY 2021, CDRH received comments regarding guidances issued in 2011, 2001, 1991, and 1981 and has withdrawn 1 guidance document because the guidance document was determined to no longer represent the Agency’s current thinking. The revision of several guidance documents is also being considered as resources permit. III. Website Location of Guidance Lists This notice announces the website location of the document that provides the A- and B- lists of guidance documents, which CDRH is intending to publish during FY 2022. To access these two lists, visit FDA’s website at https:// www.fda.gov/medical-devices/guidancedocuments-medical-devices-andradiation-emitting-products/cdrhproposed-guidance-development. We note that the topics on this and past guidance priority lists may be removed or modified based on current priorities, as well as comments received regarding these lists. Furthermore, FDA and CDRH priorities are subject to change at any time (e.g., newly identified safety issues). The Agency is not required to publish every guidance on either list if the resources needed would be to the detriment of meeting quantitative review timelines and statutory obligations. In addition, the Agency is not precluded from issuing guidance documents that are not on either list. Dated: October 22, 2021. Lauren K. Roth, Associate Commissioner for Policy.
