SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Schering-Plough Animal Health Corp., 1095 Morris Ave., P.O. Box 3182, Union, NJ 07083, filed NADA 141-194 that provides for use of CLINACOX (0.2 percent diclazuril) and BMD (10, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, or 75 grams per pound (g/lb) bacitracin methylene disalicylate) Type A medicated articles to make two-way combination drug Type C medicated feeds for growing turkeys. The Type C feeds contain 0.91 g/ton diclazuril and 4 to 50 g/ton bacitracin methylene disalicylate, and they are used for the prevention of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria adenoeides, E. gallopavonis, and E. meleagrimitis, and for increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency. The NADA is approved as of April 2, 2002, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.198 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 each 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)(2) 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.
