This ICR is for a guidance intended to assist tobacco manufacturers, importers, researchers, and investigators, and their representatives who seek meetings with staff of FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP). This guidance does not pertain to other types of meetings or meeting requests with CTP staff. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) offers several pathways to obtain an order from FDA to authorize the marketing of a new tobacco product before it may be introduced or delivered into interstate commerce. To provide assistance with these pathways to market products, FDA will meet with tobacco product manufacturers, importers, researchers, and investigators (or their representatives) where appropriate. This guidance is intended to assist persons who seek guidance relating to their research to inform the regulation of tobacco products or to support the development or marketing of tobacco products. This guidance describes two collections of information: (1) The submission of a meeting request containing certain information and (2) the submission of a meeting information package in advance of the meeting. The purpose of the meeting information package is to provide Agency staff the opportunity to adequately prepare for the meeting, including the review of relevant data concerning the product. In the Agency’s experience, reviewing such information is critical to achieving a productive meeting. For information that was previously submitted in a meeting request, the information package should provide updated information that reflects the most current and accurate information available.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 65 83 0 0 -18 0
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 1,820 2,324 0 0 -504 0
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 0 0 0 0 0 0
Our estimated burden for the information collection reflects an overall decrease of 504 hours and 18 respondents. Additionally based on new authority for NTN products twe added 5 respondents. We attribute this adjustment to the number of meeting requests received the last few years and the number of requests projected for the next few years.
