SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

RMS Laboratories, Inc., 1903 East First St., Vidalia, GA 30474, filed NADA 141-210 that provides for use of GENESIS (triamcinolone acetonide) Topical Spray in dogs for the control of pruritus associated with allergic dermatitis. The NADA is approved as of November 4, 2002, and the regulations are amended in part 524 (21 CFR part 524) by adding new § 524.2482 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

In addition, RMS Laboratories, Inc., has not been previously listed in the animal drug regulations as a sponsor of an approved application. At this time, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to add entries for the firm.

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)(ii) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 360b(c)(2)(F)(ii)), this approval qualifies for 3 years of marketing exclusivity beginning November 4, 2002.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(d)(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.
