HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AF18 Publication ID: Spring 2005 
Title: Use of Ozone-Depleting Substances: Removal of Essential Use Designation; Albuterol 
Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, is required to determine whether an FDA-regulated product that releases an ozone-depleting substance (ODS) is essential. The two agencies have tentatively determined that the two currently marketed non-ODS metered-dose inhalers (MDIs) will be satisfactory alternatives to albuterol MDIs that contain ODS, and have proposed to remove the essential use designations for albuterol MDIs. If the essential use designation is removed, albuterol MDIs that contain an ODS could not be marketed after a suitable transition period. The proposed rule specifically asked for comments on which phase-out period length will best ensure a smooth transition and minimize any adverse affects on the public health.
