and effectiveness data to the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305),

I. Background

    In the Federal Register of January 30, 1998 (63 FR 4571), FDA 
published a final rule that revised 21 CFR 814.44(d) and 814.45(d) to 
discontinue individual publication of PMA approvals and denials in the 
Federal Register, providing instead to post this information on the 
Internet at http://www.fda.gov. In addition, the regulations provide 
that FDA publish a quarterly list of available safety and effectiveness 
summaries of PMA approvals and denials that were announced during the 
quarter. FDA believes that this procedure expedites public notification 
of these actions because announcements can be placed on the Internet 
more quickly than they can be published in the Federal Register, and 
FDA believes that the Internet is accessible to more people than the 
Federal Register.
    In accordance with section 515(d)(4) and (e)(2) of the Federal 
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 360e(d)(4) and 
(e)(2)), notification of an order approving, denying, or withdrawing 
approval of a PMA will continue to include a notice of opportunity to 
request review of the order under section 515(g) of the act.

The 30-day period for requesting administrative reconsideration of an 
FDA action under Sec.  10.33(b) (21 CFR 10.33(b)) for notices 
announcing approval of a PMA begins on the day the notice is placed on 
the Internet. Section 10.33(b) provides that FDA may, for good cause, 
extend this 30-day period. Reconsideration of a denial or withdrawal of 
approval of a PMA may be sought only by the applicant; in these cases, 
the 30-day period will begin when the applicant is notified by FDA in 
writing of its decision.
    The following is a list of PMAs approved by CBER for which 
summaries of safety and effectiveness data were placed on the Internet 
from July 1, 2007, through September 30, 2007. There were no denial 
actions during this period. The list provides the manufacturer's name, 
the product's generic name or the trade name, and the approval date.
