Pennfield Oil Co., 14040 Industrial Rd., Omaha, NE 68144, filed ANADA 200-355 for use of PENNCHLOR (chlortetracycline), salinomycin, and roxarsone Type A medicated articles to make three-way combination drug Type C medicated feeds for broiler chickens. Pennfield Oil Co.'s ANADA 200-355 is approved as a generic copy of Alpharma, Inc.'s NADA 140-867. The ANADA is approved as of March 31, 2003, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.550 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 21 CFR 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 Start Printed Page 41067a.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.
