Start Supplemental Information
In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
State Enforcement Notifications—21 CFR 100.2(d)
OMB Control Number 0910-0275—Extension
Section 310(b) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 337(b)) authorizes a State to enforce certain sections of the FD&C Act in their own name and within their own jurisdiction. However, before doing so, a State must provide notice to FDA according to 21 CFR 100.2. The information required in a letter of notification under § 100.2(d) enables us to identify the food against which a State intends to take action and to advise that State whether Federal enforcement action against the food has been taken or is in process. With certain narrow exceptions, Federal enforcement action precludes State action under the FD&C Act.
In the Federal Register of March 13, 2015 (80 FR 13392), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.
We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows:
Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1
|21 CFR section||Number of respondents||Number of responses per
respondents||Total annual responses||Average burden per
|1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
The estimated reporting burden for § 100.2(d) is minimal because enforcement notifications are seldom used by States. During the last 3 years, we have not received any new enforcement notifications; therefore, we estimate that one or fewer notifications will be submitted annually. Although we have not received any new enforcement notifications in the last 3 years, we believe these information collection provisions should be extended to provide for the potential future need of a State government to submit enforcement notifications informing us when it intends to take enforcement action under the FD&C Act against a particular food located in the State.
