Under the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), Federal agencies must obtain approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for each collection of information they conduct or sponsor. “Collection of information” is defined in 44 U.S.C. 3502(3) and 5 CFR 1320.3(c) and includes agency requests or requirements that members of the public submit reports, keep records, or provide information to a third party. Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, FDA is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document.
With respect to the following collection of information, FDA invites comments on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of FDA's functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of FDA's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.
Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing, Form FDA 2830—21 CFR Part 607—(OMB Control Number 0910-0052)—Extension
Under section 510 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360), any person owning or operating an establishment that manufactures, prepares, propagates, compounds, or processes a drug or device must register with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, on or before December 31 of each year, his or her name, place of business and all such establishments, and submit, among other information, a listing of all drug or device products manufactured, prepared, propagated, compounded, or processed by him or her for commercial distribution. In part 607 (21 CFR part 607), FDA has issued regulations implementing these requirements for manufacturers of human blood and blood products.
Section 607.20(a) requires certain establishments that engage in the manufacture of blood products to register and to submit a list of blood products in commercial distribution. Section 607.21 requires the establishments entering into the manufacturing of blood products to register within 5 days after beginning such operation and to submit a blood product listing at that time. In addition, establishments are required to register annually between November 15 and December 31 and update their blood product listing every June and December. Section 607.22 requires the use of Form FDA 2830 for registration and blood product listing. Section 607.25 indicates the information required for establishment registration and blood product listing. Section 607.26 requires certain changes to be submitted as an amendment to the establishment registration within 5 days of such changes. Section 607.30 requires establishments to update, as needed, their blood product listing information every June and at the annual registration. Section 607.31 requires that additional blood product listing information be provided upon FDA request. Section 607.40 requires foreign blood product establishments to register and submit the blood product listing information, the name and address of the establishment, and the name of the individual responsible for submitting blood product listing information.
Among other uses, this information assists FDA in its inspections of facilities, and its collection is essential to the overall regulatory scheme designed to ensure the safety of the nation's blood supply. Form FDA 2830, Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing, is used to collect this information. The likely respondents are blood banks, blood collection facilities, and blood component manufacturing facilities.
FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information based upon the database and past experience of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Division of Blood Applications in regulatory blood establishment registration and product listing. Most blood banks are familiar with the regulations and registration requirements to fill out this form.
