SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Alpharma Inc., One Executive Dr., P.O. Box 1399, Fort Lee, NJ 07024, filed NADA 141-147 that provides for use of Deccox® (27.2 grams per pound g/lb) and ChlorMaxTM (50, 65, or 70 g/lb CTC) Type A medicated articles to make combination drug Type B and Type C medicated feeds for calves, beef and nonlactating dairy cattle. The combination Type C feeds are for prevention of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii, for treatment of bacterial enteritis caused by Escherichia coli, and for treatment of bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multocida organisms susceptible to CTC. The NADA is approved as of September 29, 2000, and the regulations are amended in the table in 21 CFR 558.195(d) 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)(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.
