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.

Extralabel Drug Use for Animals—21 CFR 530

OMB Control Number 0910-0325—Extension

The Animal Medicinal Drug Use Clarification Act of 1994 (Pub. L. 103-396) allows a veterinarian to prescribe the extralabel use of approved new animal drugs. Also, it permits FDA, if it finds that there is a reasonable probability that the extralabel use of an animal drug may prevent the risk to the public health, to establish a safe level for a residue from the extralabel use of the drug and to require the development of an analytical method for the detection of residues above that established safe level (21 CFR 530.22(b)). Although to date, we have not established a safe level for a residue from the extralabel use of any new animal drug and, therefore, have not required the development of analytical methodology, we believe that there may be instances when analytical methodology will be required. We are, therefore, estimating the reporting burden based on two methods being required annually. The requirement to establish an analytical method may be fulfilled by any interested person. We believe that the sponsor of the drug will be willing to develop the method in most cases. Alternatively, FDA, the sponsor, and perhaps a third party may cooperatively arrange for method development. The respondents may be sponsors of new animal drugs; State, Federal, and/or State Agencies; academia; or individuals.

In the Federal Register of August 6, 2020 (85 FR 47794), we published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. One comment was received but was not responsive to topics solicited regarding the information collection.

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

Table 1—Estimated Annual Reporting Burden 1

21 CFR partNumber of respondentsNumber of responses per respondentTotal annual responsesAverage burden per responseTotal hours
530.22(b); Submission(s) of Analytical Method2124,1608,320
1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.

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