The holder of an approved application to market a new drug for human use is required to submit annual reports to FDA concerning its approved application in accordance with § 314.81 (21 CFR 314.81).
In the Federal Register of August 29, 2018 (83 FR 44056), FDA published a notice offering an opportunity for a hearing (NOOH) on a proposal to withdraw approval of NDA 019971 because DHL Laboratories Inc. had failed to submit required annual reports for the NDA. DHL Laboratories Inc. did not respond to the NOOH. Failure to file a written notice of participation and request for hearing as required by § 314.200 (21 CFR 314.200) constitutes an election by the holder of the NDA not to make use of the opportunity for a hearing concerning the proposal to withdraw approval of the NDA and a waiver of any contentions concerning the legal status of the drug product. FDA is withdrawing approval of NDA 019971 for Dextrose 5% Injection in Plastic Container, 5 g/100 mL.
FDA finds that DHL Laboratories Inc. has repeatedly failed to submit reports required by § 314.81. In addition, under § 314.200, FDA finds DHL Laboratories Inc. has waived any contentions concerning the legal status of the drug product. Therefore, under these findings, approval of NDA 019971, and all amendments and supplements thereto, is hereby withdrawn as of July 3, 2019.
