SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each proposed extension of an existing 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.

Applications for Food and Drug Administration Approval To Market a New Drug; Postmarketing Reports; Reporting Information About Authorized Generic Drugs—(OMB Control Number 0910-0646)—Extension

In the Federal Register of July 28, 2009 (74 FR 37163), FDA published a final rule that required, under § 314.81(b)(2)(ii)(b) (21 CFR 314.81(b)(2) (ii)(b)), the holder of a new drug application (NDA) to notify the Agency if an authorized generic drug is marketed by clearly including this information in annual reports in an easily accessible place and by sending a copy of the relevant portion of the annual reports to a central contact point. We took this action as part of our implementation of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act (Public Law 110-85), which requires that FDA publish a list of all authorized generic drugs included in an annual report after January 1, 1999, and that the Agency update the list quarterly. We initially published this list on June 27, 2008, on the Internet and notified relevant Federal Agencies that the list was published, and we will continue to update it.

Based on the number of annual reports the Agency currently receives under § 314.81(b)(2) containing authorized generic drug information, we estimate that we will receive approximately 500 annual reports containing the required information on authorized generic drugs. Based on the number of sponsors that currently submit these annual reports, we estimate that approximately 70 sponsors will submit these 500 annual reports. We estimate that each sponsor will need approximately 30 minutes to include the required information on authorized generic drugs in each annual report.

We also estimate that we will receive authorized generic drug information on first marketed generics in approximately 20 annual reports from approximately 20 sponsors, and that each sponsor will need approximately 1 hour to include the required information in each annual report.

We also estimate that we will receive a copy of that portion of each annual report containing the authorized generic drug information for approximately 500 annual reports from approximately 70 sponsors, and that each sponsor will need approximately 3 minutes to submit a copy of that portion of each annual report containing the authorized generic drug information.

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