SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In the Federal Register of February 12, 2007 (72 FR 6572), FDA published a notice of availability with a 75-day comment period to request comments on a draft compliance policy guide (CPG) on voluntary self inspection of medicated feed manufacturing facilities. The purpose of this CPG is intended to provide guidance to FDA field offices on considering, among other factors, the conduct of self-inspections when prioritizing inspections of medicated feed manufacturing facilities for compliance with Current Good Manufacturing Practices for Medicated Feeds regulations.

The agency has received a request for an extension of the comment period for the draft compliance policy guide. This request conveyed concern that the current 75-day comment period does not allow sufficient time to develop a meaningful or thoughtful response to the compliance policy guide.

FDA has considered the request and is reopening the comment period for the draft compliance policy guide until June 8, 2007. The agency believes this reopening allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments.

II. Request for Comments

Interested persons may submit to the Division of Dockets Management (see ADDRESSES) written or electronic comments on these documents. Submit a single copy of electronic comments or two paper copies of any mailed comments, except that individuals may submit one paper copy. Comments are to be identified with the docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. Received comments may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
