Public Meeting: Over-the-Counter Monograph User Fees

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public meeting to gather stakeholder input on the potential development of a user fee program for nonprescription (over-the-counter or OTC) monograph drugs. A user fee program would provide funding to supplement congressional non user-fee appropriations, and would support timely and efficient FDA review of the efficacy and safety of ingredients included in or proposed for inclusion in a monograph. FDA invites public comment on a potential OTC monograph user fee program and also invites suggestions regarding the features such a user fee program should include.

Date: June 10, 2016
