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

Medicated Feed Mill License Application—21 CFR Part 515

OMB Control Number 0910-0337—Extension

Feed manufacturers that seek to manufacture feed using Category II, Type A medicated articles or manufacture certain liquid and free-choice feed, using Category I, Type A medicated articles that must follow proprietary formulas or specifications are required to obtain a facility license under section 512 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360b). Our regulations in part 515 (21 CFR part 515) establish the procedures associated with applying for a facility license. We require that a manufacturer seeking a facility license submit a completed medicated feed mill license application using Form FDA 3448 (§ 515.10(b) (21 CFR 515.10(b))). We use the information submitted to establish that the applicant has made the certifications required by section 512 of the FD&C Act, to register the mill, and to schedule a pre-approval inspection.

We require the submission of a supplemental medicated feed mill license application for a change in facility ownership or a change in facility address (§ 515.11(b) (21 CFR 515.11(b))). If a licensed facility is no longer manufacturing medicated animal feed under § 515.23 (21 CFR 515.23), a manufacturer may request voluntary revocation of a medicated feed mill license. An applicant also has the right to file a request for hearing under § 515.30(c) (21 CFR 515.30(c)) to give reasons why a medicated feed mill license should not be refused or revoked.

In the Federal Register of December 26, 2018 (83 FR 66280), 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:

These estimates are based on our experience with medicated feed mill license applications. We estimate that we will receive 14 medicated feed mill license applications, 54 supplemental applications, 29 requests for voluntary revocation, and that these submissions will take approximately 15 minutes per response, as shown in table 1, rows 1 through 3. We estimate that preparing a request for a hearing under § 515.30(c) takes approximately 4 hours, as shown in table 1, row 4. In table 2, we estimate that 837 licensees will keep the records required by 21 CFR 510.305, expending a total of 25 hours annually.

Our estimated burden for the information collection reflects an overall decrease of 2 hours and a corresponding decrease of 56 responses/records. We attribute this adjustment to a net decrease in the number of submissions we received over the last few years.
