In the Federal Register of May 19, 2015 (80 FR 28622), FDA published a notice with a 90-day nomination period for the list of bulk drug substances that may be used by a facility registered as an outsourcing facility under section 503B of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 353B) to compound drugs for use in animals in accordance with FDA’s draft GFI #230, ‘‘Compounding Animal Drugs from Bulk Drug Substances.’’ That notice describes the information that should be provided to the FDA in support of each nomination.
FDA has received a request for a 90- day extension of the nomination period as the requestor wanted more time to nominate drugs to the list and to provide supporting data. FDA has considered the request and is extending the nomination period for 90 days, until November 16, 2015. The FDA believes that a 90-day extension allows adequate time for interested persons to submit nominations without significantly delaying consideration of these nominations.
The process for nominations for bulk drug substances that may be used by facilities registered as outsourcing facilities under section 503B of the FD&C Act to compound animal drugs from bulk drug substances is described in the previous notice published May 19, 2015. FDA cannot guarantee that all drugs nominated during the nomination period will be considered for initial inclusion in Appendix A at the time of its initial publication. Nominations submitted during the nomination period (ending on November 16, 2015) that are not evaluated and included in Appendix A at the time of its initial publication will receive consideration for later addition to Appendix A. In addition, individuals and organizations may petition FDA, in accordance with 21 CFR 10.30, to make additional amendments to Appendix A after the nomination period.
