In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
State Petitions for Exemption From Preemption—21 CFR 100.1(d)
OMB Control Number 0910-0277—Extension
Under section 403A(b) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 343-1(b)), States may petition FDA for exemption from Federal preemption of State food labeling and standard-of-identity requirements. Section 100.1(d) (21 CFR 100.1(d)) sets forth the information a State is required to submit in such a petition. The information required under § 100.1(d) enables FDA to determine whether the State food labeling or standard-of-identity requirement satisfies the criteria of section 403A(b) of the FD&C Act for granting exemption from Federal preemption.
Description of Respondents: The respondents to this collection of information are State and local governments who regulate food labeling and standards of identity.
In the Federal Register of May 22, 2020 (85 FR 31190), we published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.
We estimate the burden of this collection of information as follows:
Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1
|21 CFR section||Number of respondents||Number of responses per
respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden per
|1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
The reporting burden for § 100.1(d) is minimal because petitions for exemption from preemption are seldom submitted by States. In the last 3 years, we have received one new petition for exemption from preemption; therefore, we estimate that one or fewer petitions will be submitted annually.
Based on a review of the information collection since our last request for OMB approval, we have made no adjustments to our burden estimate.
