SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

FDA is amending its regulations in 21 CFR parts 1, 5, 26, 203, 207, and 314 to reflect name and address changes for certain divisions of the Office of Compliance, CDER. The name changes are the result of a reorganization in CDER's Office of Compliance to improve coordination and communication and to enhance the office's capacity to implement risk management approaches to compliance activities. The address changes are due to the relocation of CDER's Office of Compliance.

Under this reorganization, the following organizational changes are reflected in the amendments made by this final rule:

  • The name of the former Division of Labeling and Nonprescription Drug Compliance has been changed to the Division of New Drugs and Labeling Compliance,
  • The name of the former Division of Prescription Drug Compliance and Surveillance has been changed to the Division of Compliance Risk Management and Surveillance, and
  • Information sent to or obtained from the Drug Listing Branch is now maintained and distributed by CDER's Records Repository Team.

The amendments also include:

  • The new mailing address of the Office of Compliance, CDER, and
  • The new mailing addresses of specific divisions within the Office of Compliance (CDER) and for the Records Repository Team.

Publication of this document constitutes final action on these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice and public procedure are unnecessary because these amendments are nonsubstantive.
