Agri Laboratories, Ltd., P.O. Box 3103, St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed ANADA 200-271 for LEVAMISOLE PHOSPHATE Injectable Solution, 13.65%. The ANADA provides for use of levamisole phosphate solution by subcutaneous injection for the treatment of various species of gastrointestinal parasites in cattle. The ANADA is approved as a generic copy of Schering-Plough Animal Health's NADA 126-742 for LEVASOLE® Injection. ANADA 200-271 is approved as of September 7, 2000, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1244 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

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 this application 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.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(1) 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.
