In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
Animal Drug User Fee Cover Sheet; Form FDA 3546 (OMB Control Number 0910-0539)—Extension
Under Section 740 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 379j-12), as amended by Animal Drug User Fee Act (ADUFA) (Pub. L. 108-130), FDA has the authority to assess and collect for certain animal drug user fees. Because concurrent submission of user fees with applications and supplements is required, review of an application cannot begin until the fee is submitted. The types of fees that require a cover sheet are certain animal drug application fees and certain supplemental animal drug application fees. The ADUFA cover sheet (Form FDA 3546) is designed to provide the minimum necessary information to determine whether a fee is required for the review of an application or supplement, to determine the amount of the fee required, and to assure that each animal drug user fee payment and each animal drug application for which payment is made is appropriately linked to the payment that is made. The form, when completed electronically, will result in the generation of a unique payment identification number used in tracking the payment. FDA will use the information collected to initiate administrative screening of new animal drug applications and supplements to determine if payment has been received.
In the Federal Register of February 3, 2014 (79 FR 6199), 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:
Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1
|FD&C Act section amended by ADUFA||FDA Form No.||Number of respondents||Number of responses per
respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden per
|740(a)(1)||3546 (Cover Sheet)||17||1 time for each application||17||1||17|
|1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
Respondents to this collection of information are new animal drug applicants or manufacturers. Based on FDA's database system, there are an estimated 173 manufacturers of products or sponsors of new animal drugs potentially subject to ADUFA. However, not all manufacturers or sponsors will have any submissions in a given year and some may have multiple submissions. The total number of annual responses is based on the average number of submissions received by FDA in fiscal years 2011-2013. The estimated hours per response are based on past FDA experience with the various submissions. The hours per response are based on the average of these estimates.
