SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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

Labeling of Nonprescription Human Drug Products Marketed Without an Approved Application as Required by the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act

OMB Control Number 0910-0641—Extension

Section 502(x) of the Federal, Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 352(x)), added by the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act (Pub. L. 109-462), requires the label of a nonprescription drug product marketed without an approved application in the United States to include a domestic address or domestic telephone number through which a manufacturer, packer, and distributor may receive a report of a serious adverse event associated with the product. The guidance document entitled “Labeling of Nonprescription Human Drug Products Marketed Without an Approved Application as Required by the Dietary Supplement and Nonprescription Drug Consumer Protection Act: Questions and Answers” explains how FDA interprets this requirement. The guidance discusses the meaning of “domestic address” for purposes of the labeling requirements of section 502(x) of the FD&C Act, FDA's recommendation for the use of an introductory statement before the domestic address or phone number that is required to appear on the product label under section 502(x) of the FD&C Act, and FDA's intent regarding enforcing the labeling requirements of section 502(x) of the FD&C Act.

In the Federal Register of February 11, 2019 (84 FR 3192), we published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.

Description of Respondents: Respondents to this collection of information are manufacturers, packers, and distributors whose name (under section 502(b)(1) of the FD&C Act) appears on the label of a nonprescription drug product marketed in the United States without an approved application.

As indicated in table 1 of this document, we estimate that 300 manufacturers will revise approximately 900 labels to add a full domestic address or a domestic telephone number, and should they choose to adopt the guidance's recommendation, to add a statement identifying the purpose of the domestic address or telephone number. We believe that designing the label change should not take longer than 4 hours per label. Automated printing of the labels should only require a few seconds per label.

We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows:

Based on a review of the information collection since our last request for OMB approval, we have made no adjustments to our burden estimate.
