FDA has discovered certain errors that were inadvertently included in the agency's codified regulations for part 601 (21 CFR part 601). In the Federal Register of December 11, 1992 (57 FR 58942), we published a final rule that, among other things, established subpart E of part 601, which encompasses §§ 601.40 through 601.46. Currently, § 601.43(a) refers to § 601.40, instead of the correct § 601.41; § 601.43(b) refers to § 601.40, instead of the correct § 601.42. Accordingly, we are amending § 601.43(a) by replacing the incorrect reference to § 601.40 with a reference to § 601.41, and we are amending § 601.43(b) by replacing the incorrect reference to § 601.40 with a reference to § 601.42. Publication of this document constitutes final action under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that notice and public comment are unnecessary because this amendment is nonsubstantive.
