In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
New Animal Drug Application, Form 356 V—21 CFR Part 514 (OMB Control Number 0910-0032)—Extension
FDA has the responsibility under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the act), for the approval of new animal drugs that are safe and effective. Section 512(b) of the act (21 U.S.C. 360b(b)) requires that a sponsor submit and receive approval of a new animal drug application (NADA) before interstate marketing is allowed. The regulations implementing statutory requirements for NADA approval have been codified under 21 CFR part 514. NADA applicants generally use a single form, FDA 356 V. The NADA must contain, among other things, safety and effectiveness data for the drug, labeling, a list of components, manufacturing and controls information, and complete information on any methods used to determine residues of drug chemicals in edible tissues. While the NADA is pending, an amended application may be submitted for proposed changes. After an NADA has been approved, a supplemental application must be submitted for certain proposed changes, including changes beyond the variations provided for in the NADA and other labeling changes. An amended application and a supplemental application may omit statements concerning which no change is proposed. This information is reviewed by FDA scientific personnel to ensure that the intended use of an animal drug, whether as a pharmaceutical dosage form, in drinking water, or in medicated feed, is safe and effective. The respondents are pharmaceutical firms that produce veterinary products and commercial feed mills.
In the Federal Register of May 19, 2004 (69 FR 28930), FDA published a 60-day notice soliciting comments on the collection of information requirements. In response to that notice, no comments were received.
FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
|21 CFR Section||No. of Respondents||Annual Frequency per Response||Total Annual Responses||Hours per Response||Total Hours|
|514.1 and 514.6||190||7.39||1,405||211.6||297,298|
|1 There are no capitol costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
The estimate of the burden hours required for reporting are based on FY 2003 data. The burden estimate includes original NADAs, supplemental NADAs and amendments to unapproved applications.
The burden estimate for obtaining a waiver (filing a petition) from labeling requirements for certain drugs intended for use in animal feed or drinking water was derived from data by FDA's Division of Animal Feeds in the Center for Veterinary Medicine.Start Signature
