Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., 2621 North Belt Hwy., St. Joseph, MO 64506-2002, filed ANADA 200-361 that provides for the veterinary prescription use of Acepromazine Maleate (acepromazine maleate) Injection in dogs, cats, and horses as a tranquilizer. Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica's Acepromazine Maleate Injection is approved as a generic copy of Fort Dodge Animal Health's PROMACE Injectable approved under NADA 15-030. The ANADA is approved as of April 14, 2004, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.23 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 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.
