SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has 
submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for 
review and clearance.

Electronic Submission Process for Voluntary Allegations to the Center 
for Devices and Radiological Health--(OMB Control Number 0910-NEW)

    This information collection request collects information 
voluntarily submitted to the Center for Devices and Radiological Health 
(CDRH) on actual or potential health risk concerns about a medical 
device or radiological product or its use. Because there has been no 
established guidelines or instructions on how to submit an allegation 
to CDRH, allegations often contain minimal information and are received 
via phone calls, emails, or conversationally from any CDRH staff. CDRH 
seeks to establish a consistent format and process for the submission 
of device allegations that will enhance our timeliness in receiving, 
assessing and evaluating voluntary allegations. The information 
provided in the allegations received by CDRH may be used to clarify the 
recurrence or emergence of significant device-related risks to the 
general public and the need to initiate educational outreach or 
regulatory action to minimize or mitigate identified risks.
    In the Federal Register of May 6, 2013 (78 FR 26373), FDA published 
a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of 
information. No comments were received.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as
