Box 1399, Fort Lee, NJ 07024, filed ANADA 200-274 that provides for the use of Lincomycin (lincomycin HCl) Injectable 30% by intramuscular injection for the treatment of infectious arthritis and mycoplasma pneumonia in swine. Alpharma's Lincomycin Injectable 30% Start Printed Page 34388is approved as a generic copy of Pharmacia & Upjohn Co.'s LINCOMIX 300, approved under NADA 34-025. The application is approved as of February 1, 2002, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1260 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary. Section 522.1260 is also being amended to reflect a current format.

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.
