If the owner or operator of the establishment has not previously entered into such operation for which a license is required, registration must follow within 5 days after the submission of a biologics license application.

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.
FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information based upon information obtained from FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research's database and FDA experience with the blood establishment registration and product listing requirements. The time needed for industry to complete the Form FDA 2830 is estimated to be 1 hour for new firms. The blood establishments for the most part are familiar with the regulations and registration requirements to fill out this form for the first time. Approximately 111 new Form FDA 2830s are received annually. With annual re-registration of blood establishments, the time needed for industry to complete the Form FDA 2830 is estimated to be 0.5 hours. The blood establishments need only to refer to their files or written instructions for a small portion of the information required. Approximately 2,621 Form FDA 2830s are received annually for re-registration. Approximately 180 Form FDA 2830s are received annually for the product listing update with an estimated average of 0.25 hours to complete the form.
In the Federal Register of August 12, 2008 (73 FR 46909), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received.
