Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests During the Public Health Emergency; Immediately in Effect Guidance for Clinical Laboratories, Commercial Manufacturers, and Food and Drug Administration Staff; Availability
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or Agency) is announcing the availability of a final guidance entitled ``Policy for Coronavirus Disease-2019 Tests During the Public Health Emergency.'' On February 4, 2020, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) determined that there is a public health emergency and that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Rapid detection of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) cases in the United States requires wide availability of SARS-CoV-2 testing. This guidance was revised on March 16, 2020, May 4, 2020, and May 11, 2020. The guidance describes four policies intended to help facilitate the development and use of SARS-CoV-2 tests during the public health emergency: Two policies for accelerating the development of certain laboratory tests for COVID-19one leading to an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) submission to FDA and the other not leading to an EUA submission when the test is developed under the authorities of the State in which the laboratory resides and the State takes responsibility for COVID-19 testing by laboratories in its State; a policy for commercial manufacturers to more rapidly distribute their SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics to laboratories for specimen testing after validation while an EUA submission is being prepared for submission to FDA; and a policy regarding the use of serological testing. In addition, FDA has included a reference to the availability, on FDA's website, of templates for commercial manufacturers and laboratories intended to facilitate EUA submissions for molecular, antigen, and serology tests. The guidance document is immediately in effect, but it remains subject to comment in accordance with the Agency's good guidance practices.

Hazardous Materials: New York City Permit Requirements for Transportation of Certain Hazardous Materials
On July 6, 2017, PHMSA published in the Federal Register an administrative determination that Federal hazardous material transportation law preempts, in part, FDNY's permit, inspection, and fee requirements. FDNY has petitioned for reconsideration of that determination. FDNY's petition for reconsideration is granted in part, and denied in part, as follows: 1. Permit and Inspection RequirementPHMSA affirms its determination that the HMTA preempts FDNY's permit and inspection requirements, FC 2707.4 and 105.6, with respect to vehicles based outside the inspecting jurisdiction, and its determination that the HMTA does not preempt these requirements with respect to vehicles that are based within the inspecting jurisdiction. PHMSA's determination is based on its conclusion that FDNY's permit and inspection requirements create an obstacle to accomplishing and carrying out the HMR's prohibition against unnecessary delays in the transportation of hazardous material on vehicles based outside the inspecting jurisdiction. 2. Permit FeeBased on new information supplied by FDNY, PHMSA reverses its determination that FDNY is not using the revenue it collects from its permit fee for authorized purposes. However, PHMSA affirms its determination that the permit fee is not ``fair,'' as required by 49 U.S.C. 5125(f)(1), and therefore affirms its determination that the permit fee is preempted.
