SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Phoenix Scientific, Inc., 3915 South 48th St. Terrace, St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-247 that provides for use of Oxytetracycline HCl Soluble Powder-343 for making medicated drinking water for the treatment of various bacterial diseases of livestock. The supplemental ANADA provides for use of oxytetracycline hydrochloride soluble powder in honeybees for the control and treatment of foulbrood, and in swine drinking water with a reduction in preslaughter withdrawal time to zero days. A new container size, a 4.78-ounce packet, is also being approved. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of November 12, 2003, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.1660d to reflect the approval.

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 Division of Dockets Management (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.

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