SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

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 notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed 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.

II. Records and Reports Concerning Experience With Approved New Animal Drugs; Proposed New Data Elements for Adverse Event Reports on Revised Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a; 21 CFR 514.80 (OMB Control No. 0910-0645)—Revision

Section 512(l) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 360b(l)) and § 514.80(b) of FDA regulations (21 CFR 514.80) require applicants of approved new animal drug applications (NADAs) and approved abbreviated new animal drug applications (ANADAs) to report adverse drug experiences and product/manufacturing defects.

This continuous monitoring of approved NADAs and ANADAs affords the primary means by which FDA obtains information regarding potential problems with the safety and efficacy of marketed approved new animal drugs as well as potential product/manufacturing problems. Postapproval marketing surveillance is important because data previously submitted to FDA may no longer be adequate, as animal drug effects can change over time and less apparent effects may take years to manifest.

An applicant must report adverse drug experiences and product/manufacturing defects on Form FDA 1932, “Veterinary Adverse Drug Reaction, Lack of Effectiveness, Product Defect Report.” Periodic drug experience reports and special drug experience reports must be accompanied by a completed Form FDA 2301, “Transmittal of Periodic Reports and Promotional Material for New Animal Drugs” (see § 514.80(d)). Form FDA 1932a, “Veterinary Adverse Drug Reaction, Lack of Effectiveness or Product Defect Report,” allows for voluntary reporting of adverse drug experiences or product/manufacturing defects.

Collection of information using existing paper forms FDA 2301, 1932, and 1932a is currently approved under OMB control number 0910-0284, set to expire on January 31, 2010. FDA currently is seeking renewal of that information collection.

FDA recently proposed to collect information using electronic versions of Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a as part of the agency-wide information collection (MedWatchPlus Portal and Rational Questionnaire) that was announced for public comment in the Federal Register on October 23, 2008 (73 FR 63153). The MedWatchPlus Portal and Rational Questionnaire are components of a new electronic system for collecting, submitting, and processing adverse event reports and other safety information for all FDA-regulated products.

In this 30-day notice, FDA is requesting public comment on data elements associated with revisions to forms FDA 1932 and 1932a (both paper and electronic) under revised OMB control number 0910-0645, described below. We will publish separately in the Federal Register a 30-day notice to complete the renewal of OMB control number 0910-0284, the collection of information using existing paper forms FDA 2301, 1932, and 1932a, to provide time for development of the revised FDA Forms 1932 and 1932a and their incorporation into the MedWatch OMB Start Printed Page 60266control number 0910-0645. After these forms have been incorporated under MedWatch OMB control number 0910-0645, they will cease to exist under OMB control number 0910-0284. FDA Form 2301 will continue without revision under OMB control number 0910-0284.

This 30-day notice lists the data elements associated with revised versions of both paper and electronic forms 1932 and 1932a under a revision to OMB control number 0910-0645. It is estimated that, during the first 3 years that the MedWatchPlus Portal is in use, half of the reports will be submitted in paper format and half will be submitted electronically.

The reporting and recordkeeping burden estimates, including the total number of annual responses, are based on the submission of reports to the Division of Surveillance, Center for Veterinary Medicine. The hours per response for both paper and electronic versions of revised Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a are assumed to be the time it will take to gather the required information and complete each form. The annual frequency of responses was calculated as the total annual responses divided by the number of respondents.

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

1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.
2 FDA received 35,765 mandatory reports (Form FDA 1932) during 2007 from 808 respondents. Based on this experience, and taking into account the data element revisions, we estimate that CVM will receive 35,765 mandatory reports from 808 respondents annually. We estimate that one half of the respondents (404) will use the paper form, while the other half (404) will submit electronically; that is, we will receive 17,882.5 reports in paper form, and 17,882.5 reports electronically. We estimate the reporting burden for mandatory reporting to be: Paper form: 26,824 hours (404 respondents x 44.264 annual frequency of response x 1.5 hours ≉ 26,824 hours). Electronic form: 17,882.5 hours (404 respondents x 44.264 annual frequency of response x 1 hour ≉ 17,882.5 hours).
3 FDA received 163 voluntary reports (Form FDA 1932a) during 2007. Based on this experience, and taking into account the data element revisions, we estimate that CVM will receive 163 voluntary reports from 163 respondents annually. We estimate that one half of the respondents (81.5) will use the paper form, while the other half (81.5) will submit electronically; that is, we will receive 81.5 reports in paper form, and 81.5 reports electronically. We estimate the reporting burden for voluntary reporting to be: Paper form: 81.5 hours (81.5 respondents x 1 annual frequency of response x 1 hour per report = 81.5 hours). Electronic form: 48.9 hours (81.5 respondents x 1 annual frequency of response x 0.6 hours per report = 48.9 hours).

III. Revisions to Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a and Request for Comments

A. Background on Revisions

Section 514.80(d) of FDA's regulations requires applicants of approved NADAs and ANADAs to report adverse drug experiences and product and manufacturing defects associated with their new animal drug products using Form FDA 1932. For voluntary reporting, Form FDA 1932a should be used instead.

As part of FDA's ongoing effort to harmonize the agency's adverse event (AE) regulatory reporting requirements with those of other nations and streamline reporting for product and manufacturing defects, FDA is contemplating changes to the data elements reported on Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a. Furthermore, the contemplated changes to Forms FDA 1932 and 1932a are based on FDA's experience in determining the safety and effectiveness of product(s) and need for efficient data capture and entry.

The contemplated changes to the AE reporting requirements for Form FDA 1932 are the product of discussions undertaken between the United States, Japan, and the European Union as part of the International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Medicinal Products (VICH). FDA is considering revisions to Form FDA 1932 that would bring the AE reporting data elements on the form more in line with the data elements developed as a result of the VICH discussions.1 The agency also is Start Printed Page 60267contemplating the inclusion of additional new data elements that would gather information specific only to FDA. Collecting this FDA-specific information is essential for the processing, review, and regulatory disposition of the electronic and paper reports. Inclusion of some of the new data elements is necessitated by the Rational Questionnaire.

In addition, the agency is considering adding new data elements for product and manufacturing defect reports on Form FDA 1932 and 1932a. These changes are the product of internal FDA discussions and are intended to capture additional pertinent product and manufacturing defect information.

B. Proposed Revisions

1. Form FDA 1932

This section describes data elements on the current Form FDA 1932, proposed new data elements, and data elements we propose to delete from the current form. These AE and product and manufacturing defect data elements will be collected electronically, through the MedWatchPlus Portal and Rational Questionnaire (currently under development), and in the paper form.

Table 3 of this document, entitled “Data Elements for Form FDA 1932,” presents the data elements for the collection of animal drug adverse event reports and manufacturing and product defect reports. The data elements are listed in the column entitled “Data Elements.” The column entitled “Current, New, or Deleted Data Element” indicates whether the data element is currently being collected (Current)2, is a proposed new data element (New), or is a data element FDA proposes to delete (Deleted).

As previously mentioned in this document, the agency has had discussions with VICH regarding the data elements to be collected for animal drug adverse events. As a result, the agency is proposing new data elements that have been negotiated with VICH. The column entitled “VICH-Negotiated or FDA-Proposed Data Element” differentiates between VICH-negotiated and FDA-proposed data elements.

The agency intends to allow the regulated industry to submit this information collection in three different submission/transmission formats. Industry will be able to submit these reports using a paper form, the Web-based Rational Questionnaire, or an electronic file through the FDA electronic Gateway-to-Gateway transmission. The column entitled “Submission/Transmission Format” presents the submission/transmission format(s) that will be used with each particular data element.

2. Form FDA 1932a

This section describes data elements on the current Form FDA 1932a and the proposed new data elements. These AE and product and manufacturing defect data elements will be collected electronically, through the MedWatchPlus Portal Rational Questionnaire, and in the paper form. All the data elements will be captured using the MedWatchPlus Portal Rational Questionnaire or the paper form.

Table 4 of this document, entitled “Data Element Information Collection for Form FDA 1932a,” presents the data elements the agency is proposing for the collection of animal drug adverse events reports and manufacturing and product problem reports for individuals who choose to report information voluntarily to FDA. The current and proposed new data elements are listed in the column entitled “Data Elements.” In general, the information being collected is the same, but the data element has been renamed or restructured to facilitate data collection. As stated previously in this document, the proposed changes are based on FDA's experience in determining the safety and effectiveness of product(s) and need for efficient data capture and entry.
