Pennfield Oil Co., 14040 Industrial Rd., Omaha, NE 68137, filed ANADA 200-295 for PennchlorTM 64 (chlortetracycline) Soluble Powder. The application provides for oral use of chlortetracycline soluble powder administered in drinking water or in solutions dosed by mouth in cattle, swine, chickens, and turkeys for the control and treatment of various diseases caused by bacteria susceptible to chlortetracycline. Pennfield Oil Co.'s PennchlorTM 64 is approved as a generic copy of American Cyanamid’s Aureomycin® (chlortetracycline) Soluble Powder Concentrate, approved under NADA 65-440. The ANADA is approved as of April 27, 2001, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.445b to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

Section 520.445b is further amended in paragraph (d)(4)(iii)(C) by removing the Pennfield Oil Co. drug labeler code (DLC #053389) which was added in error (59 FR 39438, August 3, 1994) and by correcting the drug labeler code for ADM Animal Health & Nutrition Division (DLC #017519) which in error was not changed in this paragraph when the drug labeler code was changed elsewhere in this section (62 FR 27691, May 21, 1997). Publication of this document constitutes final action on these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). Notice and public procedure are unnecessary because FDA is merely correcting nonsubstantive errors.

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.
