Start Supplemental Information
In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
Regulations for In Vivo Radiopharmaceuticals Used for Diagnosis and Monitoring—21 CFR part 315
OMB Control Number 0910-0409—Extension
This information collection supports our regulations in part 315 (21 CFR part 315) that require manufacturers of diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals to submit information that demonstrates the safety and effectiveness of: (1) A new diagnostic radiopharmaceutical; or (2) a new indication for use of an approved diagnostic radiopharmaceutical. Information about the safety or effectiveness of a diagnostic radiopharmaceutical enables us to properly evaluate the safety and effectiveness profiles of such radiopharmaceuticals.
The information, which is usually submitted as part of a new drug application (NDA) or biologics license application (BLA) or as a supplement to an approved application typically includes, but is not limited to, nonclinical and clinical data on the pharmacology; toxicology; adverse events; radiation safety assessments; and chemistry, manufacturing, and controls. The content and format of an application for approval of a new drug are set forth in § 314.50 (21 CFR 314.50) and have been approved under OMB control number 0910-0001. This information collection supports part 315, which is currently approved under OMB control number 0910-0409.
In table 1, row 1, we estimate the annual reporting burden for preparing the safety and effectiveness sections of an application. This estimate does not include the time needed to conduct studies and clinical trials or other research from which the reported information is obtained.
Based on past submissions of human drug applications, new indication supplements for diagnostic Start Printed Page 19623radiopharmaceuticals, or both, we estimate that six submissions will be received annually and that 2,000 hours would be spent preparing the portions of the application that would be affected by this information collection. We further estimate the total time needed to prepare complete applications for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals as approximately 12,000 hours. This information collection does not impose any additional reporting burden for safety and effectiveness information on diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals beyond the estimated burden of 2,000 hours, because safety and effectiveness information is already required in § 314.50 and has been approved under OMB control number 0910-0001. In fact, clarification of our criteria for the evaluation of diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals in this information collection is intended to streamline overall information collection burdens, particularly for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals that may have well-established, low-risk safety profiles by enabling manufacturers to tailor information submissions and avoid unnecessary clinical studies.
In table 1, row 2, we estimate the annual reporting burden for preparing the safety and effectiveness sections of a supplement to an approved application. This estimate does not include the time needed to conduct studies and clinical trials or other research from which the reported information is obtained.
Based on past submissions of human drug applications, new indication supplements for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals, or both, we estimate that nine submissions will be received annually. We estimate the total time needed to prepare complete applications for supplements to new applications for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals as approximately between 500 and 1,000 hours. We calculated the median of this estimate to arrive at approximately 750 hours. We further estimate that the total time needed to prepare the portions of the application that would be affected by this information collection as 6,750. As previously stated, this information collection does not impose any additional reporting burden for safety and effectiveness information on diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals beyond the estimated burden of 750 hours, because safety and effectiveness information is already required in § 314.50 and has been approved under OMB control number 0910-0001.
In the Federal Register of November 12, 2020 (85 FR 71923), 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 for NDAs and Supplements to Approved NDAs for Diagnostic Radiopharmaceuticals1
|Manufacturers' activity (21 CFR Section)||Number of respondents||Number of responses per
respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden per
|NDAs (§§ 315.4, 315.5, and 315.6)||6||1||6||2,000||12,000|
|Supplements to Approved NDAs (§§ 315.4, 315.5, and 315.6)||9||1||9||750||6,750|
|1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
Our estimated burden for the information collection reflects an overall increase of 13 responses with a corresponding increase of 14,750 burden hours, including submissions involving NDAs. We attribute this adjustment to an increase in the number of submissions for NDAs for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals we received over the past few years and because we are now capturing supplements to approved NDAs for diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals.
