FDA Grants 60-Day Extension to Comment on NDI Guidance

September 8, 2011

On September 9, 2011, FDA will publish in the Federal Register a notice granting a 60-day extension, until December 2, 2011, to file comments on the draft guidance on New Dietary Ingredient (“NDI”) notifications that the Agency issued on July 5, 2011 (see our previous post on the draft guidance here).  In late July, Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C. filed a request for a one-year comment period to allow affected businesses adequate time to respond to the lengthy and controversial draft guidance (see our previous post here).
