Following these changes of sponsorship, Anthony Products Co. is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, § 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for Anthony Products Co.

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.
