SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The IOM, at the request of the Commissioner, undertook a study of the use of FDA's advisory committees. In its final report in 1992, one of the IOM's recommendations was for FDA to adopt a policy of publishing an advance yearly schedule of its upcoming public advisory committee meetings in the Start Printed Page 77637 Federal Register and FDA implemented the recommendation. The annual publication of tentatively scheduled advisory committee meetings will provide both advisory committee members and the public with the opportunity, in advance, to schedule attendance at FDA's upcoming advisory committee meetings. Since the schedule is tentative, amendments to this notice will not be published in the Federal Register. However, changes to the schedule will be posted on the FDA Advisory Committees' home page located at www.fda.gov/​oc/​advisory/​default.htm. The FDA will continue to publish a Federal Register notice 15 days in advance of each upcoming advisory committee meeting, to announce the meeting (21 CFR 14.20).
