Medical Device User Fee Rates for Fiscal Year 2013

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the fee 
rates and payment procedures for medical device user fees for fiscal 
year (FY) 2013. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C 
Act), as amended by the Medical Device User Fee Amendments of 2012 
(Title 2 of the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act, 
Public Law 112-144, which was signed by the President on July 9, 2012) 
(MDUFA III), authorizes FDA to collect user fees for certain medical 
device submissions, and annual fees both for certain periodic reports 
and for establishments subject to registration. The FY 2013 fee rates 
are provided in this document. These fees apply from October 1, 2012, 
through September 30, 2013. To avoid delay in the review of your 
application, you should pay the fee before or at the time you submit 
your application to FDA. The fee you must pay is the fee that is in 
effect on the later of the date that your application is received by 
FDA or the date your fee payment is recognized by the U.S. Treasury. If 
you want to pay a reduced small business fee, you must qualify as a 
small business before you make your submission to FDA; if you do not 
qualify as a small business before you make your submission to FDA, you 
will have to pay the higher standard fee. This document provides 
information on how the fees for FY 2013 were determined, the payment 
procedures you should follow, and how you may qualify for reduced small 
business fees.

Fees: Visit FDA's Web site, http://www.fda.gov/mdufa.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Section 738 of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C 379j) establishes fees for 
certain medical device applications, submissions, supplements, and 
notices (for simplicity, this document refers to these collectively as 
``submissions'' or ``applications''); for periodic reporting on class 
III devices; and for the registration of certain establishments. Under 
statutorily-defined conditions, a qualified applicant may receive a fee 
waiver or may pay a lower small business fee. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(d) 
and (e).) Additionally, the Secretary may, at the Secretary's sole 
discretion, grant a fee waiver or reduction if the Secretary finds that 
such waiver or reduction is in the interest of public health. (See 21 
U.S.C. 379j(f).)
    Under the FD&C Act, the fee rate for each type of submission is set 
at a specified percentage of the standard fee for a premarket 
application (a premarket application is a premarket approval 
application (PMA), a product development protocol (PDP), or a biologics 
license application (BLA)). The FD&C Act specifies the base fee for a 
premarket application for each year from FY 2013 through FY 2017; the 
base fee for a premarket application received by FDA during FY 2013 is 
$248,000. From this starting point, this document establishes FY 2013 
fee rates for other types of submissions, and for periodic reporting, 
by applying criteria specified in the FD&C Act.
    The FD&C Act specifies the base fee for establishment registration 
for each year from FY 2013 through FY 2017; the registration fee for FY 
2013 is $2,575. There is no reduction in the registration fee for small 
businesses. Each establishment that is registered (or is required to 
register) with the Secretary under section 510 of the FD&C Act (21 
U.S.C. 360) because such establishment is engaged in the manufacture, 
preparation, propagation, compounding, or processing of a device is 
required to pay the annual fee for establishment registration.

II. Fees for FY 2013

    Under the FD&C Act, all submission fees and the periodic reporting 
fee are set as a percent of the standard (full) fee for a premarket 
application. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(a)(2)(A).) For FY 2013, the standard 
fee is the base fee; for FY 2014 through FY 2017, the base fee will be 
adjusted as specified in the FD&C Act so for these fiscal years, the 
standard fee will be the adjusted base fee. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(b) and 
(c).) The standard fee for a premarket application, including a BLA, 
and for a premarket report and a BLA efficacy supplement, is $248,000 
for FY 2013. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(b).) The fees set by reference to the 
standard fee for a premarket application are:
     For a panel-track supplement, 75 percent of the standard 
fee;
     For a 180-day supplement, 15 percent of the standard fee;
     For a real-time supplement, 7 percent of the standard fee;
     For a 30-day notice, 1.6 percent of the standard fee;
     For a 510(k) premarket notification, 2 percent of the 
standard fee;
     For a 513(g) request for classification information, 1.35 
percent of the standard fee; and
     For an annual fee for periodic reporting concerning a 
class III device, 3.5 percent of the standard fee.
    For all submissions other than a 510(k) premarket notification, a 
30-day notice, and a 513(g) request for classification information, the 
small business fee is 25 percent of the standard (full) fee for the 
submission. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(d)(2)(C).) For a 510(k) premarket 
notification submission, a 30-day notice, and a 513(g) request for 
classification information, the small business fee is 50 percent of the 
standard (full) fee for the submission. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(d)(2)(C) 
and (e)(2)(C).)
    The statute sets the annual fee for establishment registration at 
$2,575 in FY 2013. There is no small business rate for the annual 
establishment registration fee; all establishments pay the same fee.
    Table 1 of this document set out the FY2013 rates for all medical 
device fees.

III. How To Qualify as a Small Business for Purposes of Medical Device 
Fees

    If your business has gross receipts or sales of no more than $100 
million for the most recent tax year, you may qualify for reduced small 
business fees. If your business has gross sales or receipts of no more 
than $30 million, you may also qualify for a waiver of the fee for your 
first premarket application (PMA, PDP, or BLA) or premarket report. You 
must include the gross receipts or sales of all of your affiliates 
along with your own gross receipts or sales when determining whether 
you meet the $100 million or $30 million threshold. If you want to pay 
the small business fee rate for a submission, or you want to receive a 
waiver of the fee for your first premarket application or premarket 
report, you should submit the materials showing you qualify as a small 
business 60 days before you send your submission to FDA. If you make a 
submission before FDA finds that you qualify as a small business, you 
must pay the standard (full) fee for that submission.
    If your business qualified as a small business for FY 2012, your 
status as a small business will expire at the close of business on 
September 30, 2012. You must re-qualify for FY 2013 in order to pay 
small business fees during FY 2013.
    If you are a domestic (U.S.) business, and wish to qualify as a 
small business for FY 2013, you must submit the following to FDA:
    1. A completed FY 2013 MDUFA Small Business Qualification 
Certification (Form FDA 3602). This form is provided in FDA's guidance 
document, ``FY 2013 Medical Device User Fee Small Business 
Qualification and Certification,'' available on FDA's Web site at 
http://www.fda.gov/mdufa. This form is not available separate from the 
guidance document.
    2. A certified copy of your Federal (U.S.) Income Tax Return for 
the most recent tax year. The most recent tax year will be 2012, 
except:
     If you submit your FY 2013 MDUFA Small Business 
Qualification before April 15, 2013, and you have not yet filed your 
return for 2012, you may use tax year 2011.
     If you submit your FY 2013 MDUFA Small Business 
Qualification on or after April 15, 2013, and have not yet filed your 
2012 return because you obtained an extension, you may submit your most 
recent return filed prior to the extension.
    3. For each of your affiliates, either:
     If the affiliate is a domestic (U.S.) business, a 
certified copy of the affiliate's Federal (U.S.) Income Tax Return for 
the most recent tax year, or
     If the affiliate is a foreign business and cannot submit a 
Federal (U.S.) Income Tax Return, a National Taxing Authority 
Certification completed by, and bearing the official seal of, the 
National Taxing Authority of the country in which the firm is 
headquartered. The National Taxing Authority is the foreign equivalent 
of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. This certification must show the 
amount of gross receipts or sales for the most recent tax year, in both 
U.S. dollars and the local currency of the country, the exchange rate 
used in converting the local currency to U.S. dollars, and the dates of 
the gross receipts or sales collected. The applicant must also submit a 
statement signed by the head of the applicant's firm or by its chief 
financial officer that the applicant has submitted certifications for 
all of its affiliates, identifying the name of each affiliate, or that 
the applicant has no affiliates.
    If you are a foreign business, and wish to qualify as a small 
business for FY 2013, you must submit the following:
    1. A completed FY 2013 MDUFA Foreign Small Business Qualification 
Certification (Form FDA 3602A). This form is provided in FDA's guidance 
document, ``FY 2013 Medical Device User Fee Small Business 
Qualification and Certification,'' available on FDA's Internet site at 
http://www.fda.gov/mdufa. This form is not available separate from the 
guidance document.
    2. A National Taxing Authority Certification, completed by, and 
bearing the official seal of, the National Taxing Authority of the 
country in which the firm is headquartered. This Certification must 
show the amount of gross receipts or sales for the most recent tax 
year, in both U.S. dollars and the local currency of the country, the 
exchange rate used in converting the local currency to U.S. dollars, 
and the dates of the gross receipts or sales collected.
    3. For each of your affiliates, either:
     If the affiliate is a domestic (U.S.) business, a 
certified copy of the affiliate's Federal (U.S.) Income Tax Return for 
the most recent tax year (2011 or later), or
     If the affiliate is a foreign business and cannot submit a 
Federal (U.S.) Income Tax Return, a National Taxing

[[Page 45361]]

Authority Certification completed by, and bearing the official seal of, 
the National Taxing Authority of the country in which the firm is 
headquartered. The National Taxing Authority is the foreign equivalent 
of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. This certification must show the 
amount of gross receipts or sales for the most recent tax year, in both 
U.S. dollars and the local currency of the country, the exchange rate 
used in converting the local currency to U.S. dollars, and the dates 
for the gross receipts or sales collected. The applicant must also 
submit a statement signed by the head of the applicant's firm or by its 
chief financial officer that the applicant has submitted certifications 
for all of its affiliates, identifying the name of each affiliate, or 
that the applicant has no affiliates.

IV. Procedures for Paying Application Fees

    If your application or submission is subject to a fee and your 
payment is received by FDA from October 1, 2012, through September 30, 
2013, you must pay the fee in effect for FY 2013. The later of the date 
that the application is received in the reviewing center's document 
room or the date the U.S. Treasury recognizes the payment determines 
whether the fee rates for FY 2012 or FY 2013 apply. FDA must receive 
the correct fee at the time that an application is submitted, or the 
application will not be accepted for filing or review.
    FDA requests that you follow the steps below before submitting a 
medical device application subject to a fee to ensure that FDA links 
the fee with the correct application. (Note: In no case should the 
check for the fee be submitted to FDA with the application.)

A. Step One--Secure a Payment Identification Number (PIN) and Medical 
Device User Fee Cover Sheet From FDA Before Submitting Either the 
Application or the Payment

    Log on to the MDUFA Web site at: http://www.fda.gov/mdufa, click on 
``MDUFA FORMS'' at the left side of the page, and then under the MDUFA 
Forms heading, click on the link ``Create MDUFA User Fee Cover Sheet.'' 
Complete the Medical Device User Fee cover sheet. Be sure you choose 
the correct application submission date range. (Two choices will be 
offered until October 1, 2012. One choice is for applications that will 
be received on or before September 30, 2012, which will be subject to 
FY 2012 fee rates. A second choice is for applications that will be 
received on or after October 1, 2012, which will be subject to FY 2013 
fee rates.) After completing data entry, print a copy of the Medical 
Device User Fee cover sheet and note the unique PIN located in the 
upper right-hand corner of the printed cover sheet.

B. Step Two--Electronically Transmit a Copy of the Printed Cover Sheet 
With the PIN to FDA's Office of Financial Management

    Once you are satisfied that the data on the cover sheet is 
accurate, electronically transmit that data to FDA according to 
instructions on the screen. Because electronic transmission is 
possible, applicants are required to set up a user account and use 
passwords to assure data security in the creation and electronic 
submission of cover sheets.

C. Step Three--Submit Payment for the Completed Medical Device User Fee 
Cover Sheet as Described in This Section, Depending on the Method You 
Will Use to Make Payment

    1. If paying with a paper check:
     All paper checks must be in U.S. currency from a U.S. bank 
and made payable to the Food and Drug Administration. (FDA's tax 
identification number is 53-0196965, should your accounting department 
need this information.)
     Please write your application's unique PIN, from the upper 
right-hand corner of your completed Medical Device User Fee cover 
sheet, on your check.
     Mail the paper check and a copy of the completed cover 
sheet to: Food and Drug Administration, P.O. Box 956733, St. Louis, MO 
63195-6733. (Please note that this address is for payments of 
application and annual report fees only and is not to be used for 
payment of annual establishment registration fees.)
    If you prefer to send a check by a courier (such as Federal Express 
(FedEx), DHL, United Parcel Service (UPS), etc.), the courier may 
deliver the check to: U.S. Bank, Attn: Government Lockbox 956733, 1005 
Convention Plaza, St. Louis, MO 63101. (Note: This address is for 
courier delivery only. Contact the U.S. Bank at 314-418-4013 if you 
have any questions concerning courier delivery.)
    FDA records the official application receipt date as the later of 
the following: (1) The date the application was received by FDA or (2) 
the date the U.S. Treasury recognizes the payment. It is helpful if the 
fee payment arrives at the bank at least 1 day before the application 
arrives at FDA.
    2. If Paying With Credit Card or Electronic Check (Automated 
Clearing House (ACH)):
    FDA has partnered with the U.S. Department of the Treasury to 
utilize www.Pay.gov, a Web-based payment system, for online electronic 
payment. You may make a payment via electronic check or credit card 
after submitting your cover sheet. To pay online, select the ``Pay 
Now'' button. Credit card transactions for cover sheets are limited to 
$5,000.00.
    3. If paying with a wire transfer:
     Please include your application's unique PIN, from the 
upper right-hand corner of your completed Medical Device User Fee cover 
sheet, in your wire transfer. Without the PIN your payment may not be 
applied to your cover sheet and review of your application will be 
delayed.
     The originating financial institution may charge a wire 
transfer fee between $15 and $35. Please ask your financial institution 
about the fee and include it with your payment to ensure that your 
cover sheet is fully paid.
    Use the following account information when sending a wire transfer: 
New York Federal Reserve Bank, U.S. Department of the Treasury, TREAS 
NYC, 33 Liberty St., New York, NY 10045, Acct. No. 75060099, Routing 
No. 021030004, SWIFT: FRNYUS33, Beneficiary: FDA, 1350 Piccard Drive, 
Rockville, MD 20850.

D. Step Four--Submit Your Application to FDA With a Copy of the 
Completed Medical Device User Fee Cover Sheet

    Please submit your application and a copy of the completed Medical 
Device User Fee cover sheet to one of the following addresses:
    1. Medical device applications should be submitted to: Food and

V. Procedures for Paying the Annual Fee for Periodic Reporting

    As of FY 2011, you are no longer able to create a cover sheet and 
obtain a PIN to pay the MDUFA Annual Fee for Periodic Reporting. 
Instead, you will be invoiced at the end of the quarter in which your 
PMA Periodic Report is due. Invoices will be sent based on the details 
included on your PMA file; you are responsible to ensure your billing 
information are kept up-to-date (you can

[[Page 45362]]

update your contact for the PMA by submitting an amendment).
    1. If paying with a paper check:
    All paper checks must be in U.S. currency from a U.S. bank and made 
payable to the Food and Drug Administration. (FDA's tax identification 
number is 53-0196965, should your accounting department need this 
information.)
     Please write your invoice number.
     Mail the paper check and a copy of invoice to: Food and 
Drug Administration, P.O. Box 956733, St. Louis, MO 63195-6733. (Please 
note that this address is for payments of application and annual report 
fees only and is not to be used for payment of annual establishment 
registration fees.)
    If you prefer to send a check by a courier (such as FedEx, DHL, 
UPS, etc.), the courier may deliver the check to: U.S. Bank, Attn: 
Government Lockbox 956733, 1005 Convention Plaza, St. Louis, MO 63101. 
(Note: This address is for courier delivery only. Contact the U.S. Bank 
at 314-418-4013 if you have any questions concerning courier delivery.)
    2. If paying with a wire transfer:
     Please include your invoice number in your wire transfer. 
Without the invoice number, your payment may not be applied and you may 
be referred to collections.
     The originating financial institution may charge a wire 
transfer fee between $15 and $35. Please ask your financial institution 
about the fee and include it with your payment to ensure that your 
invoice is fully paid.
    Use the following account information when sending a wire transfer: 
New York Federal Reserve Bank, U.S. Department of the Treasury, TREAS 
NYC, 33 Liberty St., New York, NY 10045, Acct. No. 75060099, Routing 
No. 021030004, SWIFT: FRNYUS33, Beneficiary: FDA, 1350 Piccard Dr., 
Rockville, MD 20850.

VI. Procedures for Paying Annual Establishment Fees

    In order to pay the annual establishment fee, firms must access the 
Device Facility User Fee (DFUF) Web site at https://fdasfinapp8.fda.gov/OA_HTML/fdaCAcdLogin.jsp. (FDA has verified the 
Web site address, but FDA is not responsible for any subsequent changes 
to the Web site after this document publishes in the Federal Register.) 
You will create a DFUF order and you will be issued a PIN once you 
place your order. After payment has been processed, you will be issued 
a payment confirmation number (PCN). You will not be able to register 
your establishment if you do not have a PIN and a PCN. An establishment 
required to pay an annual establishment registration fee is not legally 
registered in FY 2013 until it has completed the steps below to 
register and pay any applicable fee. (See 21 U.S.C. 379j(g)(2).)
    Companies that do not manufacture any product other than a licensed 
biologic are required to register in the Blood Establishment 
Registration (BER) system. FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and 
Research (CBER) will send establishment registration fee invoices 
annually to these companies.

A. Step One--Submit a DFUF Order With a PIN From FDA Before Registering 
or Submitting Payment

    To submit a DFUF Order, you must create or have previously created 
a user account and password for the User Fee Web site listed previously 
in this section. After creating a user name and password, log into the 
Establishment Registration User Fee FY 2013 store. Complete the DFUF 
order by entering the number of establishments you are registering that 
require payment. Once you are satisfied that the data on the order is 
accurate, electronically transmit that data to FDA according to 
instructions on the screen. Print a copy of the final DFUF order and 
note the unique PIN located in the upper right-hand corner of the 
printed order.

B. Step Two--Pay for Your DFUF Order

    Unless paying by credit card, all payments must be in U. S. 
currency and drawn on a U.S. bank.
    1. If paying by credit card or electronic check (ACH):
    The DFUF order will include payment information, including details 
on how you can pay online using a credit card or electronic check. 
Follow the instructions provided to make an electronic payment.
    2. If paying with a paper check:
    If you prefer not to pay online, you may pay by a check, in U.S. 
dollars and drawn on a U.S. bank, mailed to: Food and Drug 
Administration, P.O. Box 979108, St. Louis, MO 63197-9000. (Note: This 
address is different from the address for payments of application and 
annual report fees and is to be used only for payment of annual 
establishment registration fees.)
    If a check is sent by a courier that requests a street address, the 
courier can deliver the check to: U.S. Bank, Attn: Government Lockbox 
979108, 1005 Convention Plaza, St. Louis, MO 63101. (Note: This U.S. 
Bank address is for courier delivery only; do not send mail to this 
address.)
    Please make sure that both of the following are written on your 
check: (1) The FDA post office box number (P.O. Box 979108) and (2) the 
PIN that is printed on your order. A copy of your printed order should 
also be mailed along with your check. FDA's tax identification number 
is 53-0196965.
    3. If paying with a wire transfer:
    Wire transfers may also be used to pay annual establishment fees. 
To send a wire transfer, please read and comply with the following 
information:

processing of licensed biologic devices. CBER will send invoices for 
payment of the establishment registration fee to such establishments.
