Advisory Committee Information Hotline

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing that we
have revised the Advisory Committee Information Hotline (the hotline).
The hotline provides the public with access to the most current
information available on FDA advisory committee meetings. This notice
supersedes all previously published announcements of FDA's Advisory
Committee Information Hotline.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theresa L. Green, Committee Management
Officer (HF-4), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane,
Rockville, MD 20857, 301-827-1220.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee Information Hotline
can be accessed by dialing 1-800-741-8138 or 301-443-0572. The advisory
committee meeting information and information updates can also be
accessed via FDA's Advisory Committee calendar at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.fda.gov/oc/advisory/accalendar/accalendar.html
.

    Each advisory committee is assigned a 10-digit number. This 10-
digit number will appear in each individual notice of meeting. The
public can obtain information about a particular advisory committee
meeting by using the committee's 10-digit number. Information on the
hotline is preliminary and may change before a meeting is actually
held. The hotline will be updated when such changes are made. The
following is a list of each advisory committee's 10-digit number to be
used when accessing the hotline.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The hotline will provide the most recent information available on
upcoming advisory committee meetings, guidance for making an oral
presentation during the open public hearing portion of a meeting, and
procedures on obtaining copies of transcripts of advisory committee
meetings. Because the hotline will communicate the most current
information available about any particular advisory committee meeting,
this system will provide interested parties with timely and equal
access to such information. The hotline should also conserve agency
resources by reducing the current volume of inquiries individual FDA
offices and employees must handle concerning advisory committee
schedules and procedures.
    This notice is issued under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5
U.S.C. app. 2) and 21 CFR part 14, relating to advisory committees.

    Dated: December 10, 2003.
Peter J. Pitts,
Associate Commissioner for External Relations.
