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.Start List of Subjects
