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

Abbreviated New Animal Drug Applications—FD&C Act/Section 512(n)(1)—(OMB Control Number 0910-NEW)

On November 16, 1988, the President signed into law the Generic Animal Drug and Patent Restoration Act (GADPTRA) (Public Law 100-670). Under Section 512(b)(2) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act), as amended by GADPTRA, any person may file an abbreviated new animal drug application (ANADA) seeking approval of a generic copy of an approved new animal drug. The information required to be submitted as part of an abbreviated application is described in section 512(n)(1) of the act. Among other things, an abbreviated application is required to contain information to show that the proposed generic drug is bioequivalent to, and has the same labeling as, the approved drug referenced in the abbreviated application. FDA allows applicants to submit a complete ANADA or to submit information in support of an ANADA for phased review followed by the submission of an administrative ANADA when FDA finds that all the applicable technical sections for an ANADA are complete. FDA requests that an applicant accompany ANADAs and requests for phased review of data to support ANADAs with the Form FDA 356v to ensure efficient and accurate processing of information to support approval of the generic new animal drug.

In the Federal Register of November 2, 2009 (74 FR 56643), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.

FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:Start Printed Page 12760

ANADA Paperwork Burden (Section 512(n)(1) of the Act) (21 U.S.C. 360b(b)(2)): Over the past 5 fiscal years, from October 2003 through September 2008, FDA has received an average of 22 ANADAs per year. FDA estimates that preparing the paperwork required under section 512(n)(1) of the act to be contained in an ANADA, whether all of the information is submitted with the ANADA or the applicant submits information for phased review followed by an Administrative ANADA that references that information, will take approximately 159 hours. FDA is estimating that each ANADA that uses the phased review process will have approximately 5 phased reviews per application. Therefore, assuming that 5 respondents will take advantage of the phased review option per year and an average of 5 phased reviews are submitted per application, times 31.8 hours per phased review, equals 795 total hours per year or 159 hours per application.

FDA believes that with time, more sponsors will take advantage of the phased review option, as it provides greater flexibility. Eventually, phased review will increase to the point of being the majority of ANADAs submitted during the course of the year. FDA also estimates that it takes sponsors of ANADAs approximately 25 percent less time to put together the information to support an ANADA than an NADA because they only need to provide evidence of bioequivalence and not the data required in an NADA to support a full demonstration of safety and effectiveness.

Form FDA 356v: FDA requests that an applicant fill out and send in with an ANADA and requests for phased review of data to support an ANADAs, a Form FDA 356v to ensure efficient and accurate processing of information to support the approval of a generic new animal drug.

This document also refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. The collections of information under 21 CFR 514.80, which describes records and reports that are required post approval, have been approved under OMB control no. 0910-0284.
