SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Hoechst Roussel Vet, Perryville Corporate Park III, PO Box 4010, Clinton, NJ 08809-4010, filed supplemental NADA 140-897 that provides for Revalor®-IS ear implants containing 80 milligrams (mg) trenbolone acetate (TBA) and 16 mg estradiol for steers fed in confinement for slaughter for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency. Hoechst Roussel Vet also filed supplemental NADA 140-992 that provides for Revalor®-IH ear implants containing 80 mg TBA and 8 mg estradiol for heifers fed in confinement for slaughter for increased rate of weight gain.

The supplemental NADA's are approved as of June 19, 2000, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.2477 to reflect the approvals. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summaries.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 514.11(e)(2)(ii)), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of these applications may be seen in the Dockets Management Branch (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Under section 512(c)(2)(F)(iii) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(c)(2)(F)(iii)), these approvals for food-producing animals qualify for 3 years of marketing exclusivity beginning June 19, 2000, because the applications contain substantial evidence of the effectiveness of the drugs involved, any studies of animal safety or, in the case of food-producing animals, human food safety studies (other than bioequivalence or residue studies) required for approval of the applications and conducted or sponsored by the applicant. The 3 years of marketing exclusivity applies only to the implants approved in these supplemental NADA's.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(2) 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.

This rule does not meet the definition of “rule” in 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(A) because it is a rule of “particular applicability.” Therefore, it is not subject to the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
