In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance.
Dispute Resolution Procedures for Science-Based Decisions on Products by the Center for Veterinary Medicine-21 CFR 10.75
OMB Control Number 0910-0566-Extension
The Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) Guidance for Industry (GFI) #79, "Dispute Resolution Procedures for Science-Based Decisions on Products Regulated by the Center for Veterinary Medicine" ( https://www.fda.gov/media/70279/download), describes the process by which CVM formally resolves disputes relating to scientific controversies. A scientific controversy involves issues concerning a specific product regulated by CVM related to matters of technical expertise and requires specialized education, training, or experience to be understood and resolved. The guidance details information on how CVM intends to apply provisions of existing regulations regarding internal review of Agency decisions. In addition, the guidance outlines the established procedures for persons who are sponsors, applicants, or manufacturers of animal drugs or other products regulated by CVM who wish to submit a request for review of a scientific dispute. When a sponsor, applicant, or manufacturer has a scientific disagreement with a written decision by CVM, they may submit a request for a review of that decision by following the established procedures discussed in the guidance.
CVM encourages applicants to begin the resolution of science-based disputes with discussions with the review team/group, including the Team Leader or Division Director. The Center prefers that differences of opinion regarding science or science-based policy be resolved between the review team/group and the applicant. If the matter is not resolved by this preferred method, then CVM recommends that the applicant follow the procedures found in GFI #79.
In the Federal Register of August 18, 2020 (85 FR 50827), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received.
FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows:
|21 CFR part; activity||Number of respondents||Number of responses per respondent||Total annual responses||Average burden per response||Total hours|
|10.75, Request for review of a scientific dispute||1||4||4||10||40|
|1 ?There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.|
We note that the 60-day notice included an inadvertent error in the estimated burden, which has been corrected in table 1. Based on a review of the information collection since our last request for OMB approval, we have made no adjustments to our burden estimate.
Dated: February 11, 2021.

Acting Principal Associate Commissioner for Policy.
