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

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

Under section 510 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (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 Start Printed Page 20139producing 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 previous data estimates.

In the Federal Register of December 4, 2018 (83 FR 62583), 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:

The following adjustments and program changes resulted in a 5,672-hour decrease to the overall total hour burden estimate for this information collection request.

  • We adjusted the number of respondents based on updated registration and listing data.
  • In the reporting burden table, we corrected the table footnotes to accurately indicate whether the information collection (IC) is a one-time or reoccurring burden.
  • We also adjusted some of the IC descriptions in the table for increased clarity.
  • We updated our estimate of Hours per Response for “807.22(a) Initial Registration and Listing” (+ 0.5 hours), “807.22(b)(1) Annual Registration” (− 0.25 hours), and “807.22(b)(3) Annual Update of Listing Information” (− 0.25 hours). Based on our review of the program, we believe these changes to the burden estimate will more accurately reflect the current preparation time for these ICs.
