SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Delmarva Laboratories, Inc., 1500 Huguenot Rd., suite 106, Midlothian, VA 23113, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, the following two approved NADAs and three approved ANADAs to Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Ft. Worth, TX 76137:

Application No.21 CFR SectionTrade Name
NADA 065-492520.88fROBAMOX V (amoxicillin trihydrate) Tablets
NADA 065-495520.88bROBAMOX V (amoxicillin trihydrate)

ANADA 200-316520.446CLINTABS (clindamycin hydrochloride) Tablets
Start Printed Page 55824

Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in §§ 520.88b, 520.88f, 520.446, 520.447, and 522.900 to reflect the transfer of ownership.

Following these changes of sponsorship, Delmarva Laboratories, Inc., is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for Delmarva Laboratories, Inc.

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.
