The trade group says Oct. 7 a draft of a Federal Register notice the agency posted and withdrew the same day included cost estimates for compliance with FDA's December 2007 AER draft guidances. The guidances recommend that labels for supplements and OTC drugs include complete mailing addresses and statements informing consumers the information should be used for reporting AEs (1"The Tan Sheet" July 28, 2008, p. 12). NPA and other trade groups say neither requirement was in the law that made AERs mandatory and they should not be included in FDA's guidance
