FDA has discovered that errors have inadvertently become incorporated into the agency's regulations for biologics. In the Federal Register of October 20, 1999 (64 FR 56441), a final rule incorrectly revised § 56.102 (21 CFR 56.102) in paragraph (b)(11) instead of correctly revising paragraph (b)(10). Section 56.102 (b)(10) and (b)(11) were affected by this inadvertent error. This document corrects those errors.
