Food and Drug Administration, HHS.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is revising the authority citations for several of its regulations because one of the citations was repealed by Public Law 104-128, Sec. 2, 110 Stat., 1198. This action is being taken to make the regulations accurate. It does not represent a change in agency policy and does not increase any burdens on the public.
This rule is effective May 2, 2000.Start Further Info

FDA has determined that repeal of 21 U.S.C. 41-50 did not remove needed statutory authority for any current FDA regulation. Because the changes that the agency is making are not substantive and are merely ministerial changes to the Code of Federal Regulations, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs finds that there is good cause not to engage in notice and public comment procedures, which are unnecessary, or to delay the effective date of these amendments.
The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.30(i) that this action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.
Therefore, under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and under authority delegated to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs, 21 CFR parts 10, 13, 14, and 15 are amended as follows:Start Part
