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. 


Section 742(d)(4) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act)(21 U.S.C. 379j-13(d)(4)) requires that, after holding negotiations with regulated industry and periodic consultations with stakeholders, and before transmitting the Agency’s final recommendation to Congress for the reauthorized program (AGDUFA IV), we do the following:  (1) present the recommendation to the relevant congressional committees, (2) publish such recommendations in the Federal Register, (3) provide for a period of 30 days for the public to provide written comments on such recommendations, (4) hold a meeting at which the public may present its views on such recommendations, and (5) consider such public views and comments and revise such recommendations as necessary. This notice, the 30-day comment period, and the public meeting will satisfy certain of these requirements.  After the public meeting, we will revise the draft recommendations as necessary.  In addition, the Agency will present the draft recommendations to the congressional committees.

The FDA considers the timely review of abbreviated new animal drug applications (ANADAs) to be central to the Agency’s mission to protect and promote human and animal health. For more information about the AGDUFA authorizations and enhancements towards supporting that mission, please see the Federal Register notice announcing the public meeting. The FDA has published a number of reports that provide useful background on AGDUFA I, AGDUFA II, and AGDUFA III.  AGDUFA-related Federal Register notices, guidances, legislation, performance reports, and financial reports can be found at:  Animal Generic Drug User Fee Act (AGDUFA).

Public Meeting Information

The proposed enhancements in AGDUFA IV will address priorities identified by stakeholders, regulated industry, and the FDA.  The full description of these proposed recommendations can be found in the proposed AGDUFA IV Performance Goals and Procedures Letter
