In the Federal Register of September 9, 2014 (79 FR 53431), CVM announced that it was beginning to explore possible changes to the current review processes for NADAs for the use of multiple new animal drugs in combination drug medicated feeds. In the same Federal Register notice, FDA announced the opening of a docket to receive input from the public on this issue. This effort is consistent with the stated performance goal in the Animal Drug User Fee Amendments of 2013 (ADUFA III) goals letter.

In the Federal Register of April 29, 2016 (81 FR 25677), FDA published a notice of availability of a draft CVM report, giving interested persons until July 29, 2016, to comment. Those comments were considered as the CVM working group report was finalized without substantive changes. This report was developed for the discussions with the regulated industry for reauthorization of ADUFA.
