FDA-TRACK: BsUFA Performance

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as amended by the Biosimilar User Fee Amendments of 2017 (BsUFA II), authorizes FDA to assess and collect fees for biosimilar biological products from October 2017 through September 2022. FDA dedicates these fees to expediting the review process for biosimilar biological products, facilitating the development of safe and effective biosimilar products for the American public. The Biosimilar User Fee Performance Dashboards (BsUFA Dashboards) provide a concise, interactive, and visual presentation of data that is presented in the legislatively mandated FY 2018 BsUFA Performance Report to Congress for the Biosimilar User Fee Act (the Report). The BsUFA Dashboards are not intended to replace the Report and are to be used as a supplemental tool for viewing the data. The BsUFA Dashboards reflect performance on submissions received and actions taken as of September 30, 2018. The BsUFA Dashboards present final performance in meeting BsUFA goals for FY 2017 and preliminary performance for FY 2018. Final BsUFA performance data for FY 2018 will be presented in the FY 2019 BsUFA Report and referenced in updated versions of the BsUFA Dashboards.
