End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


Agri Laboratories, Ltd., P.O. Box 3103, St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-066 that provides for use of AGRIMYCIN 343 (oxytetracycline HCl) Soluble Powder for making medicated drinking water for the treatment of various bacterial diseases of livestock. The supplemental ANADA provides for a zero-day withdrawal time after the use of the product in the drinking water of turkeys and swine. The supplemental application is approved as of October 4, 2001, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.1660d to reflect the approval.

Section 520.1660d is also being amended to reflect approval of a 5-pound pail size, which was approved under ANADA 200-066 on June 15, 1994.

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.
