I. Background

In the Federal Register of June 29, 2018 (83 FR 30751), FDA announced the availability of a notice for industry entitled “Quality Metrics Site Visit Program for Center for Drug Evaluation and Research and Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research Staff.” Interested persons were originally given until August 28, 2018, to submit a proposal to the Quality Metrics Site Visit Program per the notice. The Agency believes that extending the proposal period for an additional 120 days from the date of publication of this notice will allow adequate time for interested persons to submit proposals for FDA's consideration. The Site Visit Program is to provide experiential and firsthand learning opportunities to FDA staff involved in the development of the FDA Quality Metrics Program and to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to explain the advantages and challenges associated with implementing and managing a robust Quality Metrics Program. The program and information to be included in the proposal are explained more fully in the original notice.
