During the second public meeting to discuss the proposed rule entitled, âRequirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods,â the FDA expressed their intent to extend the comment period for the information collection provisions that is set to close on November 23rd. FDA also is considering whether to provide any extension of the comment period for the proposed rule.
The Food Traceability Proposed Rule which published on September 23, 2020 included a 120-day comment period for the proposal and a 60-day comment period for the information collection provisions. After hearing concerns from several stakeholders that more time is needed to adequately review and analyze the information collection provisions with consideration to the entire proposed rule, the agency intends to formally announce an extension to the comment period for these provisions in a forthcoming notice in the Federal Register.
