1. FDA Reopens Comment Period for GDUFA Public Hearing on Policy Development
FDA has posted a Federal Register notice reopening the public docket to solicit comments on certain topics related to Generic Drug User Fee Amendments of 2012 (GDUFA) implementation and the GDUFA Commitment Letter that accompanies the legislation.

FDA will reopen the comment period to the public docket associated with the GDUFA Public Hearing on Policy Development for an additional 30 days. The public hearing was announced in the Aug. 19, 2014 Federal Register and held on Sept. 17, 2014 (FDA-2014-N-1168).

The agency has requested public input on the five draft guidance documents that were issued to facilitate implementation of GDUFA and on future policy priorities including recommendations for additional guidance topics to facilitate GDUFA implementation. FDA also requested feedback on issues that may arise in consideration of 180-day exclusivity provided for by paragraph IV patent certifications (section 505(j)(5)(b)(iv) of the FD&C Act). Finally, FDA requested feedback on the specific criteria FDA that should apply to identify an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) as a first generic eligible for expedited ANDA review.   FDA is no longer seeking comment on the first generic review prioritization category at this time. FDA will take the information presented at the public hearing and in comments to the docket into account when developing the fiscal year 2015 GDUFA priorities. 

The Agency is reopening the docket in response to requests that FDA provide an additional opportunity to submit comments on these topics.
