The information contained in the reports required by this regulation enables FDA to monitor the use of new animal drugs after approval and to ensure their continued safety and efficacy.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 these topics: (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.

Records and Reports Concerning Experience With Approved New Animal Drugs—21 CFR 514.80—(OMB Control Number 0910-0284)—Extension

Implementation of section 512(l) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b) and 21 CFR 514.80 requires applicants of approved new animal drug applications and abbreviated new animal drug applications (NADAs) to submit product/manufacturing defects, initial and followup reports for adverse drug experiences and lack of effectiveness of new animal drugs, increased frequency 15-day alert reports, periodic drug experience reports (annually or semiannually in a specific format), and other reports (special drug experience reports, advertisement and promotional material submissions, and distributor statements.)

This continuous monitoring of approved NADAs affords the primary means by which FDA obtains information regarding potential problems in safety and effectiveness of marketed animal drugs and potential manufacturing problems. Current data on file with FDA is not adequate because animal drug effects can change over time, and less apparent effects may take years to manifest themselves.

Adverse reaction reports are required to be submitted by the drug manufacturer on FDA Forms 1932 or 1932a (voluntary reporting form), following complaints from animal owners or veterinarians. Also, product defects and lack of effectiveness complaints are submitted to FDA by the drug manufacturer following their own detection of a problem or complaints from product users or their veterinarians using FDA Forms 1932 and 1932a. Form FDA 2301 is used to submit the required transmittal of periodic reports and promotional material for new animal drugs. The reporting and recordkeeping burden estimates are based on the submission of reports to the Division of Surveillance, Center for Veterinary Medicine. The total annual responses are also based on the submission of reports to the Division of Surveillance, Center for Veterinary Medicine. The Start Printed Page 29158annual frequency of response was calculated as the total annual responses divided by the number of respondents.

FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
