I. Background

In the Federal Register of April 12, 2010 (75 FR 18514), FDA issued a notice announcing a public workshop that is intended to assist the agency in developing draft guidance for industry on describing practices for naming, labeling, and packaging drugs and biologics to reduce medication errors. The April 12, 2010, notice invited individuals interested in presenting to the panelists to register by May 25, 2010. Registration to present at the workshop is closed. All others are welcome to attend on a first-come, first-served basis.

Because of a greater than anticipated response for attending the public workshop, FDA is announcing in this notice a new location.

II. New Location for the Public Workshop

The new location will be the Holiday Inn College Park (see ADDRESSES). Directions and information on parking, accommodations, and transportation options can be found at
