Revisions to the Requirements Applicable to Blood, Blood Components and Source Plasma

  • Industry: Laboratory Compliance

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the biologics regulations by removing, revising, or updating specific regulations applicable to blood, blood components and Source Plasma to be more consistent with current practices in the blood industry and to remove unnecessary or outdated requirements. We are taking this action as part of our continuing effort to reduce the burden of unnecessary regulations on industry and to revise outdated regulations without diminishing public health protection. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, we are publishing a companion proposed rule under our usual procedures for notice and comment in the event that we receive any significant adverse comments on the direct final rule. If we receive any significant adverse comments that warrant terminating the direct final rule, we will consider such comments on the proposed rule in developing the final rule

 

Effective Date:This rule is effective February 19, 2008

Current Good Manufacturing Practice for Blood and Blood Components; Notification of Consignees ....

  • Industry: Laboratory Compliance

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring establishments collecting Whole Blood or blood components, including Source Plasma and Source Leukocytes, to establish, maintain, and follow an appropriate system for identifying blood and blood components previously donated by a donor who tests reactive for evidence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection on a subsequent donation identified either by current testing or after a review of historical testing records, or when the collecting establishment is made aware of other reliable test results or information indicating evidence of HCV infection. Such collections may be at increased risk of transmitting HCV infection. FDA is requiring collecting establishments to quarantine prior in-date blood and blood components from such a donor, to notify consignees of prior in-date blood and blood components from such a donor for quarantine purposes, and to perform further testing on the donor. FDA is also requiring consignees to notify transfusion recipients of blood and blood components from such a donor, as appropriate. In addition, FDA is revising the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) ‘‘lookback’’ requirements for greater consistency with the HCV ‘‘lookback’’ requirements, and extending the record retention period to 10 years. FDA is taking this action to help ensure the continued safety of the blood supply and to help ensure that information is provided to recipients of blood and blood components that may have been at increased risk of transmitting HIV or HCV infection. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA is announcing the availability of a guidance document entitled ‘‘Guidance for Industry: ‘Lookback’ for Hepatitis C Virus (HCV): Product Quarantine, Consignee Notification, Further Testing, Product Disposition, and Notification of Transfusion Recipients Based on Donor Test Results Indicating Infection with HCV’’ (the ‘‘lookback’’ guidance). We are also issuing this final rule in conjunction with a companion interim final rule published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register.

Effective Date:This rule is effective February 20, 2008

  • Industry: Laboratory Compliance

The Food and Drug Administration is correcting a direct final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of August 16, 2007 (72 FR 45883). That document amended the biologics regulations by removing, revising, or updating specific regulations applicable to blood, blood components and Source Plasma to be more consistent with current practices in the blood industry and to remove unnecessary or outdated requirements. A proposal was published as a companion document to the direct final rule in the same issue of the Federal Register (August 16, 2007, 72 FR 45993). Both documents published with a typographical error in the codified section. This document corrects the error in the direct final rule. Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register we are correcting the error in the proposed rule
