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.

Electronic Submission of Medical Device Registration and Listing—21 CFR Part 807, Subparts A Through E; OMB Control Number 0910-0625—Extension

Under section 510 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360) and part 807, subparts A through D (21 CFR part 807, subparts A through D), medical device establishment owners and operators are required to electronically submit establishment registration and device listing information.

Complete and accurate registration and listing information is necessary to accomplish a number of statutory and regulatory objectives, such as: (1) Identification of establishments producing marketed medical devices, (2) identification of establishments producing a specific device when that device is in short supply or is needed for national emergency, (3) facilitation of recalls for devices marketed by owners and operators of device establishments, (4) identification and cataloguing of marketed devices, (5) administering postmarketing surveillance programs for devices, (6) identification of devices marketed in violation of the law, (7) identification and control of devices imported into the country from foreign establishments, (8) and scheduling and planning inspections of registered establishments under section 704 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 374)

Respondents to this information collection are owners or operators of establishments that engage in the manufacturing, preparation, propagation, compounding, or processing of a device or devices, who must register their establishments and submit listing information for each of their devices in commercial distribution. Notwithstanding certain exceptions, foreign device establishments that manufacture, prepare, propagate, compound, or process a device that is imported or offered for import into the United States must also comply with the registration and listing requirements. The number of respondents is based on data from the FDA Unified Registration and Listing System.

Burden estimates are based on recent experience with the existing medical device registration and listing program, electronic system operating experience, and the economic analysis for the final Start Printed Page 65781rule entitled “Implementation of Device Registration and Listing Requirements Enacted in the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, the Medical Device User Fee and Modernization Act of 2002, and Title II of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007.”

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