SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Intervet, Inc., 29160 Intervet Lane, P.O. Box 318, Millsboro, DE 19966, filed a supplement to NADA 138-612 for FINAPLIX-H (trenbolone acetate). Ivy Laboratories, Division of Ivy Animal Health, Inc., 8857 Bond St., Overland Park, KS 66214, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-224 for COMPONENT T-H and COMPONENT T-S (trenbolone acetate), COMPONENT T-H with TYLAN and COMPONENT T-S with TYLAN (trenbolone acetate with tylosin tartrate). The supplemental NADA and ANADA provide for the addition of statements to labeling warning against the use of these products in calves to be processed for veal. The supplemental applications are approved as of October 22, 2004, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.2476 to reflect the approval and a current format. 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), summaries of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of these applications Start Printed Page 70056may 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 these actions are of a type that do 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.
