The Food and Drug Administration announced rates and payment procedures for fiscal year (FY) 2012 animal drug user fees in a notice published in the August 1, 2011, Federal Register. The Animal Drug User Fee Amendments of 2008 (ADUFA II) reauthorizes FDA to collect user fees for certain animal drug applications, products, establishments, sponsors and investigational animal drug submissions.
For FY 2012, the fee is $372,100 per application for an animal drug application and $186,050 for a supplemental animal drug application which requires safety or effectiveness data. The annual product fee is $7,935, the annual establishment fee is $93,050, and the annual sponsor fee is $67,200. FDA will issue invoices for FY 2012 product, establishment, and sponsor fees by December 31, 2011, and will be due 30 days from the issuance of the invoice. FDA will not accept an application for filing unless the sponsor has paid all the fees it owes.
The notice also provides procedures animal drug sponsors should use to pay the FY 2012 fees. The application fee rates are effective for applications received by FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine from October 1, 2011, until September 30, 2012.
