Information to Accompany Humanitarian Device Exemption Applications and Annual Distribution Number Reporting Requirements

OMB 0910-0661

OMB 0910-0661

Under section 520(m) (21 U.S.C. 360j(m)) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), the FDA is authorized to exempt a humanitarian use device (HUD) from the effectiveness requirements in sections 514 and 515 of the FD&C Act. HUDs are subject to the general restriction that no profit may be made on their use. For HUDs labeled for use in certain populations, FDA exempts a certain number of these devices each year from the prohibition on profit. This number is known as the ADN. The information gathered by this collection enables FDA to set this number. Failure to collect this information would prevent FDA from assigning an ADN. Section 520(m)(6)(A)(ii), as amended by FDASIA, provides that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (the Secretary) will assign an annual distribution number (ADN) for devices that meet the eligibility criteria to be permitted to be sold for profit.. The ADN is defined as the number of devices "reasonably needed to treat, diagnose, or cure a population of 4,000 individuals in the United States," and therefore shall be based on the following information in a humanitarian device exemption (HDE) application: the number of devices reasonably necessary to treat such individuals. FDA is requesting OMB approval for the collection of information required under the statutory mandate of sections 515A and 520(m) of the FD&C Act as amended. Reporting Requirements: Pediatric Subpopulation and Patient Information--Section 515A(a)(2) Requires that an HDE application include a description of any pediatric subpopulations that suffer from the disease or condition that the device is intended to treat, diagnose, or cure and the number of affected pediatric patients.
