Update: On October 19, 2022, the FDA announced it would extend the comment period announced in the notice of public meeting and request for comments published September 30, 2022. Either electronic or written comments on the notice must be submitted by November 14, 2022, to ensure that the Agency considers your comments regarding this public meeting and request for comments.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will hold a public meeting on October 26, 2022, to offer opportunity for discussion on the proposed recommendations for reauthorization of the Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act (AGDUFA). Interested parties can share their comments at the meeting or by submitting them to the public docket electronically or by mail as described below.
AGDUFA gives the FDA the authority to collect user fees that provide funding to support the generic new animal drug review process. These resources support the FDA’s responsibility to ensure these drugs are safe and effective and to enhance the timeliness and predictability of application review for generic animal drugs needed by various animal populations. Reauthorization of this program includes an annual revenue of at least $25 million in user fees, supplementing budget authority funding, for the generic new animal drug program. The program expires on September 30, 2023.
