HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AG13 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Premarketing Safety Reporting Requirements for Human Drug and Biological Products 
Abstract: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has undertaken revisions to 21 CFR 312.32, 312.64, and 320.31 to better protect public health and improve safety reporting by increasing the quality of safety reports, expediting FDA’s review of critical safety information, advancing worldwide consistency in the collection and submission of safety information, and strengthening the agency’s ability to monitor the safety of certain human drugs and biological products. The final rule amends the premarketing safety reporting requirements for human drugs and biological products to codify the Agency's expectations for timely acquisition, evaluation, and submission of relevant and useful safety information, to improve the overall quality of safety reporting, to implement internationally consistent definitions, to subject bioavailability and bioequivalence studies to safety reporting requirements, and to make other minor revisions. These revisions were proposed as part of a single rulemaking (68 FR 12406) to clarify and revise both premarketing and postmarketing safety reporting requirements for human drug and biological products. FDA plans to finalize the premarket and postmarket safety reporting requirements in separate final rules.
