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

Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards—(OMB Control Number 0910-0601)—Extension

I. Background

In the Federal Register of July 20, 2006 (71 FR 41221), FDA announced the availability of a draft document entitled “Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards.” These draft program standards are the framework that States should use to design and manage its manufactured food program. The implementation of the program standards will be negotiated as an option for payment under the State food contract. States that are awarded this option will receive up to $25,000 over a period of 5 years to fully implement the program standards. In the first year of implementing the program standards, the State program conducts a baseline self-assessment to determine if they meet the elements of each standard. The State program should use the worksheets and forms contained herein; however it can use alternate forms that are equivalent. The State program maintains the documents and verifying records required for each standard. The information contained in the documents must be current and fit-for-use. If the State program fails to meet all program elements and documentation requirements of a standard, it develops a strategic plan to fully implement the program standards in 5 years. The strategic plan includes the following: (1) The individual element or documentation requirement of the standard that was not met, (2) improvements needed to meet the program element or documentation requirement of the standard, and (3) projected completion dates for each task.
