SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In the Federal Register of December 30, 2014 (79 FR 78448), FDA published a notice with a 90-day comment period to request comments on the draft guidance for industry and FDA staff entitled “Radiation Biodosimetry Devices”.

The Agency received a request for an extension of the comment period for the draft guidance (Docket No. FDA-2014-D-2065-0005). The request conveyed concern that the current 90-day comment period does not allow sufficient time to respond. FDA has considered the request and is reopening and extending the comment period for the draft guidance for 30 days. The Agency believes that a 30-day extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit comments without significantly delaying further FDA action on this guidance document.
