In a notice published in the Federal Register of July 11, 2001 (66 FR 36287), FDA announced the availability of a draft guidance entitled “Guidance for Industry: CBER Pilot Licensing Program for Immunization of Source Plasma Donors Using Immunogen Red Blood Cells Obtained from an Outside Supplier.” This draft guidance described a pilot program in which biologics manufacturers could self-certify conformance to licensing criteria prescribed by FDA. This action was intended to reduce unnecessary burdens for industry without diminishing public health protection.
The draft guidance is being withdrawn because FDA has determined that there is a lack of industry interest in pursuing the pilot licensing program outlined in the draft guidance.Start Signature
