SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In the Federal Register of September 26, 2016, FDA published a request for comments on GDUFA reauthorization draft recommendations. The comment period ends on November 7, 2016.

Because the Agency posted the draft recommendations on October 14, 2016, and the statute requires a period of 30 days be provided for the public to provide comments on the draft recommendations, FDA is extending the comment period for the GDUFA reauthorization draft recommendations until November 16, 2016.

In addition, in FR Doc. 2016-23111, appearing on page 66035 in the Federal Register of Monday, September 26, 2016, the following correction is made:

On page 66038, in the final paragraph of the first column, the second sentence is corrected to read: “Specifically, FDA would issue product-specific guidance identifying the methodology for developing drugs and generating evidence needed to support ANDA approval, for 90 percent of new chemical entity new drug applications that are approved on or after October 1, 2017, at least 2 years prior to the earliest lawful filing date.”
