SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pfizer, Inc., 235 East 42d St., New York, NY 10017-5755, has informed FDA that it has transferred to Phoenix Scientific, Inc., 3915 South 48th St. Terrace, P.O. Box 6457, St. Joseph, MO 64506-0457, ownership of, and all rights and interests in NADA 065-110 for Pro-Pen G (penicillin G procaine) in Aqueous Suspension and NADA 065-498 for Pen BP-48 (penicillin G benzathine/procaine). Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in 21 CFR 522.1696a and 522.1696b to reflect the transfer of ownership. The agency is also taking the opportunity to restructure the regulation to reflect current format.

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.
