and effectiveness data to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), 
Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville,

I. Background

    In the Federal Register of January 30, 1998 (63 FR 4571), FDA 
published a final rule that revised 21 CFR 814.44(d) and 814.45(d) to 
discontinue individual publication of PMA approvals and denials in the 
Federal Register. Instead, the agency now posts this information on the 
Internet on FDA's home page at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/leaving.cgi?from=leavingFR.html&log=linklog&to=http://www.fda.gov. FDA believes that 
this procedure expedites public notification of these actions because 
announcements can be placed on the Internet more quickly than they can 
be published in the Federal Register, and FDA believes that the 
Internet is accessible to more people than the Federal Register.
    In accordance with section 515(d)(4) and (e)(2) of the Federal 
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 360e(d)(4) and 
(e)(2)), notification of an order approving, denying, or withdrawing 
approval of a PMA will continue to include a notice of opportunity to 
request review of the order under section 515(g) of the act. The 30 day 
period for requesting reconsideration of an FDA action under Sec.  
10.33(b) (21 CFR 10.33(b)) for notices announcing approval of a PMA 
begins on the day the notice is placed on the Internet. Section 
10.33(b) provides that FDA may, for good cause, extend this 30 day 
period. Reconsideration of a denial or withdrawal of approval of a PMA 
may be sought only by the applicant; in these cases, the 30 day period 
will begin when the applicant is notified by FDA in writing of its 
    The regulations provide that FDA publish a quarterly list of 
available safety and effectiveness summaries of PMA approvals and 
denials that were announced during that quarter. The following is a 
list of approved PMAs for which summaries of safety and effectiveness 
were placed on the Internet from October 1, 2008, through December 31, 
2008. There were no denial actions during this period. The list 
provides the manufacturer's name, the product's generic name or the 
trade name, and the approval date.
