Notice of Withdrawal of Certain Unapproved Abbreviated New Drug Applications




The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or the Agency) is announcing its intention to deem to be withdrawn any abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) that have been determined to be incomplete and as to which the ANDA applicant has not communicated with FDA since July 8, 1991. Each of these applications will be deemed to have been withdrawn voluntarily by the applicant unless the applicant informs the Agency in writing that it intends to actively pursue approval of the application(s) (see DATES).

ADDRESSES: Back to Top

Applicants should submit written notifications to the ANDA archival file to the Office of Generic Drugs, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, Food and Drug Administration, Document Control Room, MPN7, 7620 Standish Pl., Rockville, MD 20855. A copy of written notifications should also be submitted to Thomas Hinchliffe, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (HFD-617), Food and Drug Administration, 7500 Standish Pl., rm.

I. Background Back to Top

FDA has identified 364 ANDAs for which FDA has not received any communication from the ANDA applicant since July 8, 1991, or earlier (Inactive ANDAs). (See section IV of this document for the list of Inactive ANDAs). For purposes of this document, the term “applicant” includes any successor in interest. FDA's regulations provide that the Agency will consider withdrawn any application for which the applicant has not contacted the Agency about its intention regarding such application within 1 year after issuance of a complete response letter to the applicant (see 21 CFR 314.110(c)). The Inactive ANDAs, however, predate, and consequently are not subject to this regulation. Therefore, the Inactive ANDAs have not been deemed withdrawn although there has been no communication from the applicants since July 8, 1991, or earlier.

II. Withdrawal of Inactive ANDAs Back to Top

At this time, the Agency is announcing its intention to deem all Inactive ANDAs to have been voluntarily withdrawn by the respective applicants as of August 13, 2012, unless the applicant informs the Agency in writing by the date set forth under DATES in this document of its intent to actively pursue approval of the application. Therefore, in the absence of a written notice with respect to an Inactive ANDA by the date specified in this notice, the ANDA will be considered to have been withdrawn by the applicant. No further notice of the withdrawal of Inactive ANDAs will be provided. Withdrawal of an unapproved application is without prejudice to resubmission of that application (21 CFR 314.65). Because of the length of time that has passed since these applications were submitted, FDA strongly recommends that any applicant intending to actively pursue approval review the application carefully to determine whether it satisfies current ANDA requirements (21 CFR part 314).

III. Action by the Applicant Back to Top

If the applicant wishes to actively pursue approval of an Inactive ANDA and does not wish the application to be deemed by FDA to have been voluntarily withdrawn, the applicant must inform the Agency in writing within the time specified in this document. Written notice should be provided to Thomas Hinchliffe and the Office of Generic Drugs (see ADDRESSES).

FDA also asks any applicant that agrees to consider its application to be voluntarily withdrawn to send a written notice to Thomas Hinchliffe and the Office of Generic Drugs (see ADDRESSES) to confirm that agreement. However, applicants of Inactive ANDAs covered by this notice who wish their applications to be withdrawn are not required to provide written notice to FDA.

IV. Details About Inactive ANDAs Back to Top

Information about the Inactive ANDAs is listed in this section of the document. To protect applicant confidentiality, this notice lists the application number and drug name for each Inactive ANDA and separately lists the name of the applicant as shown in the information on file with FDA, without linking identified applicants with specific applications or drug names. In some cases, the identified applicants may no longer exist as ongoing business entities. If an identified applicant is unsure which application(s) belong to it (if any), it may contact Thomas Hinchliffe (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).
