Customer/Partner Service Surveys

OMB Control Number 0910-0360—Extension

Under section 1003 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 393), FDA is authorized to conduct research and public information programs about regulated products and responsibilities of the Agency. Executive Order 12862, entitled “Setting Customer Service Standard,” directs Federal Agencies that “provide significant services directly to the public” to “survey customers to determine the kind and quality of services they want and their level of satisfaction with existing services.” FDA is seeking extension of an existing OMB clearance to conduct a series of surveys to implement Executive Order 12862. Participation in the surveys is voluntary. This request covers customer/partner service surveys of regulated entities, such as food processors; cosmetic, drug, biologic, and medical device manufacturers; consumers; and health professionals. The request also covers “partner” (State and local governments) customer service surveys.

FDA will use the information from these surveys to identify strengths and weaknesses in service to customers/partners and to make improvements. The surveys will measure timeliness, appropriateness and accuracy of information, courtesy, and problem resolution in the context of individual programs.

FDA estimates conducting 15 customer/partner service surveys per year, each requiring an average of 15 minutes for review and completion. We estimate respondents to these surveys to be between 100 and 20,000 customers. Some of these surveys will be repeats of earlier surveys for purposes of monitoring customer/partner service and developing long-term data.

Respondents to this collection of information cover a broad range of stakeholders who have specific characteristics related to certain products or services regulated by FDA.

In the Federal Register of January 21, 2020 (85 FR 3389), we 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:

Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1

Mail, telephone, web-based55,000155,0000.25 (15 minutes)13,750

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