In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

Implementation of the Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act of 2008; User Fee Cover Sheet Form FDA 3728—21 U.S.C. 379j-21 (OMB Control Number 0910-0632)—Extension

This collection of information is currently approved under the emergency processing provisions of the PRA for 180 days. FDA is now seeking a 3-year clearance.

Section 741 of the act (21 U.S.C. 379j-21), establishes three different kinds of user fees: (1) Fees for certain types of abbreviated applications for generic new animal drugs, (2) annual fees for certain generic new animal drug products, and (3) annual fees for certain sponsors of abbreviated applications for generic new animal drugs and/or investigational submissions for generic new animal drugs. Because the submission of user fees concurrently with applications is required, the review of an application cannot begin until the fee is submitted. Form FDA 3728, the Animal Generic Drug User Fee Cover Sheet, is designed to provide the minimum necessary information in order to do the following: (1) Determine whether a fee is required for review of an application, (2) determine the amount of fee required, and (3) account for and track user fees.

In the Federal Register of March 11, 2009 (74 FR 10596), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received.

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