SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Phoenix Scientific, Inc., 3915 South 48th St. Terrace, P.O. Box 6457, St. Joseph, MO 64506-0457, filed ANADA 200-228 that provides for use of PhoenectinTM (ivermectin) Injection for cattle and swine. The ANADA provides for use of a 1 percent solution of ivermectin, by subcutaneous injection, in cattle for the treatment and control of various species of gastrointestinal nematodes, lungworms, grubs, lice, and mites; in swine for the treatment and control of various species of gastrointestinal nematodes, lungworms, lice, and mites; in reindeer for the treatment and control of warbles; and in American bison for the treatment and control of grubs. The ANADA is approved as a generic copy of Merial Ltd.'s NADA 128-409 for Ivomec® (ivermectin) Injection.

ANADA 200-228 is approved as of December 27, 2000, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1192 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.
