SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., 2621 North Belt Highway, St. Joseph, MO 64506-2002, filed a supplement to approved NADA 139-472 that provides for use of DENAGARD (5, 10, or 113.4 grams (g) per pound of tiamulin) Type A medicated articles to make Type B and Type C medicated feeds for use in growing and finishing swine. The Type C medicated feeds contain 35 g per ton tiamulin and are used for the control of porcine proliferative enteropathies (ileitis) associated with Lawsonia intracellularis. The NADA is approved as of November 26, 2001, and § 558.600 (21 CFR 558.600) is amended to reflect the approval. Section 558.600 is also being revised to a tabular format. The basis for 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.

Under section 512(c)(2)(F)(iii) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(c)(2)(F)(iii)), this approval for food-producing animals qualifies for 3 years of marketing exclusivity beginning on November 26, 2001, because the application contains substantial evidence of the effectiveness of the drug involved, any studies of animal safety, or in the case of food-producing animals, human food safety studies (other than bioequivalence or residue studies) required for the approval of the application and conducted or sponsored by the applicant. The 3 years of marketing exclusivity applies only to the new claim for which the supplemental application was approved.

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.
