Proposed rule; reopening of comment period.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reopening to February 26, 2007, the comment period for the proposed rule published in the Federal Register of August 29, 2006 (71 FR 51276). The proposed rule would amend the agency's current regulations governing establishment registration and drug listing. The initial comment period was extended (71 FR 63726, October 31, 2006) until January 26, 2007. We recently learned that, on January 26, 2007, the last day of the comment period, technical problems prevented some persons from submitting electronic comments. Therefore, FDA is reopening the comment period until February 26, 2007, to allow interested persons to submit comments for this rulemaking.


Submit written or electronic comments on the proposed rule by February 26, 2007.
