In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.

Form FDA 3728, Animal Generic User Fee Act Cover Sheet—21 U.S.C. 379j-21—OMB Control Number 0910-0632—Extension

Section 741 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 379j-21) establishes three different kinds of user fees: (1) Fees for certain types of abbreviated applications for generic new animal drugs; (2) annual fees for certain generic new animal drug products; and (3) annual fees for certain sponsors of abbreviated applications for generic new animal drugs and/or investigational submissions for generic new animal drugs (21 U.S.C. 379j-21(a)). Because concurrent submission of user fees with applications is required, the review of an application cannot begin until the fee is submitted. Form FDA 3728 is the Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act (AGDUFA) Cover Sheet, which is designed to collect the minimum necessary information to determine whether a fee is required for review of an application, to determine the amount of the fee required, and to account for and track user fees. The form, when completed electronically, will result in the generation of a unique payment identification number used by FDA to track the payment. It will be used by FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine and FDA's Office of Financial Management to initiate the administrative screening of new generic animal drug applications to determine if payment has been received.

In the Federal Register of September 2, 2016 (81 FR 60707), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.

FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:Start Printed Page 27513
