Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing, Form FDA 2830—(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 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 of each year. Section 607.22 requires the use of Form FDA 2830, Blood Establishment Registration and Product Listing, for initial registration, for annual registration, and for 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 amendments to the establishment registration within 5 days of such changes. Section 607.30 requires establishments to update their blood product listing information every June and December, or at the discretion of the registrant at the time the change occurs. 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 as well as the name, address, and phone number of its U.S. agent.
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 is used to collect this information.
Respondents to this collection of information are human blood and plasma donor centers, blood banks, certain transfusion services, other blood product manufacturers, and independent laboratories that engage in quality control and testing for registered blood product establishments.
In the Federal Register of August 24, 2005 (70 FR 49655), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received.
