``(c) Adjustments.--
``(1) [NOTE: Federal Register, publication.] Inflation
adjustment.--The revenues established in subsection (b) shall be
adjusted by the Secretary by notice, published in the Federal
Register, for a fiscal year to reflect the greater of--
``(A) the total percentage change that occurred in
the Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers (all
items; United States city average) for the 12-month
period ending June 30 preceding the fiscal year for
which fees are being established; or
``(B) the total percentage change for the previous
fiscal year in basic pay under the General Schedule in
accordance with section 5332 of title 5, United States
Code, as adjusted by any locality-based comparability
payment pursuant to section 5304 of such title for
Federal employees stationed in the District of Columbia.
The adjustment made each fiscal year by this subsection will be
added on a compounded basis to the sum of all adjustments made
each fiscal year after fiscal year 2004 under this subsection.
``(2) Workload adjustment.--After the fee revenues are
adjusted for inflation in accordance with paragraph (1), the fee
revenues shall be further adjusted each fiscal year after fiscal
year 2004 to reflect changes in review workload. With respect to
such adjustment:
``(A) This adjustment shall be determined by the
Secretary based on a weighted average of the change in
the total number of animal drug applications,
supplemental animal drug applications for which data
with respect to safety or effectiveness are required,
manufacturing supplemental animal drug applications,
investigational animal drug study submissions, and
investigational animal drug protocol submissions
submitted to the Secretary. [NOTE: Federal Register,
publication.] The Secretary shall publish in the
Federal Register the fees resulting from this adjustment
and the supporting methodologies.
``(B) Under no circumstances shall this workload
adjustment result in fee revenues for a fiscal year that
are less than the fee revenues for that fiscal year
established in subsection (b), as adjusted for inflation
under paragraph (1).
``(3) Final year adjustment.--For fiscal year 2008, the
Secretary may further increase the fees to provide for up to 3
months of operating reserves of carryover user fees for the
process for the review of animal drug applications for the first
3 months of fiscal year 2009. If the Food and Drug
Administration has carryover balances for the process for the

[[Page 1367]]
117 STAT. 1367

review of animal drug applications in excess of 3 months of such
operating reserves, then this adjustment will not be made. If
this adjustment is necessary, then the rationale for the amount
of the increase shall be contained in the annual notice setting
fees for fiscal year 2008.
``(4) [NOTE: Deadline.] Annual fee setting.--The Secretary
shall establish, 60 days before the start of each fiscal year
beginning after September 30, 2003, for that fiscal year, animal
drug application fees, supplemental animal drug application
fees, animal drug sponsor fees, animal drug establishment fees,
and animal drug product fees based on the revenue amounts
established under subsection (b) and the adjustments provided
under this subsection.
``(5) Limit.--The total amount of fees charged, as adjusted
under this subsection, for a fiscal year may not exceed the
total costs for such fiscal year for the resources allocated for
the process for the review of animal drug applications.

``(d) Fee Waiver or Reduction.--
``(1) In general.--The Secretary shall grant a waiver from
or a reduction of 1 or more fees assessed under subsection (a)
where the Secretary finds that--
``(A) the assessment of the fee would present a
significant barrier to innovation because of limited
resources available to such person or other
circumstances,
``(B) the fees to be paid by such person will exceed
the anticipated present and future costs incurred by the
Secretary in conducting the process for the review of
animal drug applications for such person,
``(C) the animal drug application or supplemental
animal drug application is intended solely to provide
for use of the animal drug in--
``(i) a Type B medicated feed (as defined in
section 558.3(b)(3) of title 21, Code of Federal
Regulations (or any successor regulation))
intended for use in the manufacture of Type C
free-choice medicated feeds, or
``(ii) a Type C free-choice medicated feed (as
defined in section 558.3(b)(4) of title 21, Code
of Federal Regulations (or any successor
regulation)),
``(D) the animal drug application or supplemental
animal drug application is intended solely to provide
for a minor use or minor species indication, or
``(E) the sponsor involved is a small business
submitting its first animal drug application to the
Secretary for review.
``(2) Use of standard costs.--In making the finding in
paragraph (1)(B), the Secretary may use standard costs.
``(3) Rules for small businesses.--
``(A) Definition.--In paragraph (1)(E), the term
`small business' means an entity that has fewer than 500
employees, including employees of affiliates.
``(B) Waiver of application fee.--The Secretary
shall waive under paragraph (1)(E) the application fee
for the first animal drug application that a small
business or its affiliate submits to the Secretary for
review. After a small business or its affiliate is
granted such a waiver, the small business or its
affiliate shall pay application fees for all

[[Page 1368]]
117 STAT. 1368

subsequent animal drug applications and supplemental
animal drug applications for which safety or
effectiveness data are required in the same manner as an
entity that does not qualify as a small business.
``(C) Certification.--The Secretary shall require
any person who applies for a waiver under paragraph
(1)(E) to certify their qualification for the
waiver. [NOTE: Federal Register, publication.] The
Secretary shall periodically publish in the Federal
Register a list of persons making such certifications.

``(e) Effect of Failure To Pay Fees.--An animal drug application or
supplemental animal drug application submitted by a person subject to
fees under subsection (a) shall be considered incomplete and shall not
be accepted for filing by the Secretary until all fees owed by such
person have been paid. An investigational animal drug submission under
section 739(5)(B) that is submitted by a person subject to fees under
subsection (a) shall be considered incomplete and shall not be accepted
for review by the Secretary until all fees owed by such person have been
paid. The Secretary may discontinue review of any animal drug
application, supplemental animal drug application or investigational
animal drug submission from a person if such person has not submitted
for payment all fees owed under this section by 30 days after the date
upon which they are due.
``(f) Assessment of Fees.--
``(1) Limitation.--Fees may not be assessed under subsection
(a) for a fiscal year beginning after fiscal year 2003 unless
appropriations for salaries and expenses of the Food and Drug
Administration for such fiscal year (excluding the amount of
fees appropriated for such fiscal year) are equal to or greater
than the amount of appropriations for the salaries and expenses
of the Food and Drug Administration for the fiscal year 2003
(excluding the amount of fees appropriated for such fiscal year)
multiplied by the adjustment factor applicable to the fiscal
year involved.
``(2) Authority.--If the Secretary does not assess fees
under subsection (a) during any portion of a fiscal year because
of paragraph (1) and if at a later date in such fiscal year the
Secretary may assess such fees, the Secretary may assess and
collect such fees, without any modification in the rate, for
animal drug applications, supplemental animal drug applications,
investigational animal drug submissions, animal drug sponsors,
animal drug establishments and animal drug products at any time
in such fiscal year notwithstanding the provisions of subsection
(a) relating to the date fees are to be paid.

``(g) Crediting and Availability of Fees.--
``(1) In general.--Fees authorized under subsection (a)
shall be collected and available for obligation only to the
extent and in the amount provided in advance in appropriations
Acts. Such fees are authorized to be appropriated to remain
available until expended. Such sums as may be necessary may be
transferred from the Food and Drug Administration salaries and
expenses appropriation account without fiscal year limitation to
such appropriation account for salary and expenses with such
fiscal year limitation. The sums transferred shall be available
solely for the process for the review of animal drug
applications.

[[Page 1369]]
117 STAT. 1369

``(2) Collections and appropriation acts.--
``(A) In general.--The fees authorized by this
section--
``(i) shall be retained in each fiscal year in
an amount not to exceed the amount specified in
appropriation Acts, or otherwise made available
for obligation for such fiscal year, and
``(ii) shall only be collected and available
to defray increases in the costs of the resources
allocated for the process for the review of animal
drug applications (including increases in such
costs for an additional number of full-time
equivalent positions in the Department of Health
and Human Services to be engaged in such process)
over such costs, excluding costs paid from fees
collected under this section, for fiscal year 2003
multiplied by the adjustment factor.
``(B) Compliance.--The Secretary shall be considered
to have met the requirements of subparagraph (A)(ii) in
any fiscal year if the costs funded by appropriations
and allocated for the process for the review of animal
drug applications--
``(i) are not more than 3 percent below the
level specified in subparagraph (A)(ii); or
``(ii)(I) are more than 3 percent below the
level specified in subparagraph (A)(ii), and fees
assessed for the fiscal year following the
subsequent fiscal year are decreased by the amount
in excess of 3 percent by which such costs fell
below the level specified in subparagraph (A)(ii);
and
``(II) such costs are not more than 5 percent
below the level specified in subparagraph (A)(ii).
``(3) Authorization of appropriations.--There are authorized
to be appropriated for fees under this section--
``(A) $5,000,000 for fiscal year 2004;
``(B) $8,000,000 for fiscal year 2005;
``(C) $10,000,000 for fiscal year 2006;
``(D) $10,000,000 for fiscal year 2007; and

as adjusted to reflect adjustments in the total fee revenues
made under this section and changes in the total amounts
collected by animal drug application fees, supplemental animal
drug application fees, animal drug sponsor fees, animal drug
establishment fees, and animal drug product fees.
``(4) Offset.--Any amount of fees collected for a fiscal
year under this section that exceeds the amount of fees
specified in appropriations Acts for such fiscal year shall be
credited to the appropriation account of the Food and Drug
Administration as provided in paragraph (1), and shall be
subtracted from the amount of fees that would otherwise be
authorized to be collected under this section pursuant to
appropriation Acts for a subsequent fiscal year.

``(h) Collection of Unpaid Fees.--In any case where the Secretary
does not receive payment of a fee assessed under subsection (a) within
30 days after it is due, such fee shall be treated as a claim of the
United States Government subject to subchapter II of chapter 37 of title
31, United States Code.

[[Page 1370]]
117 STAT. 1370

``(i) [NOTE: Deadline.] Written Requests for Waivers, Reductions,
and Refunds.--To qualify for consideration for a waiver or reduction
under subsection (d), or for a refund of any fee collected in accordance
with subsection (a), a person shall submit to the Secretary a written
request for such waiver, reduction, or refund not later than 180 days
after such fee is due.

``(j) Construction.--This section may not be construed to require
that the number of full-time equivalent positions in the Department of
Health and Human Services, for officers, employees, and advisory
committees not engaged in the process of the review of animal drug
applications, be reduced to offset the number of officers, employees,
and advisory committees so engaged.
``(k) Abbreviated New Animal Drug Applications.--The Secretary
shall--
``(1) to the extent practicable, segregate the review of
abbreviated new animal drug applications from the process for
the review of animal drug applications, and
``(2) adopt other administrative procedures to ensure that
review times of abbreviated new animal drug applications do not
increase from their current level due to activities under the
user fee program.''.
