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

Electronic Submission Process for Voluntary Allegations to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health—(OMB Control Number 0910-NEW)

This information collection request collects information voluntarily submitted to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) on actual or potential health risk concerns about a medical device or radiological product or its use. Because there has been no established guidelines or instructions on how to submit an allegation to CDRH, allegations often contain minimal information and are received via phone calls, emails, or conversationally from any CDRH staff. CDRH seeks to establish a consistent format and process for the submission of device allegations that will enhance our timeliness in receiving, assessing and evaluating voluntary allegations. The information provided in the allegations received by CDRH may be used to clarify the recurrence or emergence of significant device-related risks to the general public and the need to initiate educational outreach or regulatory action to minimize or mitigate identified risks.

In the Federal Register of May 6, 2013 (78 FR 26373), 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 29780
