Generic Drug User Fee Amendments; Public Meeting; Request for Comments
Document Number: 2021-23499
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-10-29
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a virtual public meeting to discuss proposed recommendations for the reauthorization of the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA) for fiscal years (FYs) 2023 through 2027. GDUFA amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) to authorize FDA to assess and collect fees to support human generic drug activities. The current legislative authority for GDUFA expires at the end of September 2022. At that time, new legislation will be required for FDA to continue to assess and collect generic drug user fees for future fiscal years. The FD&C Act directs FDA, following negotiations with the regulated industry and periodic consultations with other stakeholders, to present recommendations for reauthorization of the GDUFA program to the relevant Congressional committees, publish the recommendations in the Federal Register, provide for a period of 30 days for the public to provide written comments on such recommendations, and hold a meeting at which the public may present its views on such recommendations. FDA will then consider such public views and comments and revise such recommendations as necessary.

HHS is now proposing to withdraw or repeal the SUNSET final rule.
