The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect a change of sponsor for a new animal drug application (NADA) from Akzo Nobel Surface Chemistry AB (Azko Nobel) to Virbac AH, Inc.

Akzo Nobel, Box 851, S-44485 Stenungsund, Sweden, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 10-886 for Purina Liquid Wormer to Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Ft. Worth, TX 76137.
Following this change of sponsorship, Akzo Nobel is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for Akzo Nobel.
Purina Liquid Wormer (NADA 10-886) is labeled for use in chickens, turkeys, and swine. The drug was the subject of a National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council evaluation of effectiveness under FDA's drug efficacy study implementation (DESI) program (DESI 10-005V). The findings of the evaluation were published in the Federal Register of February 14, 1969 (34 FR 2213). A separate entry in part 520 (21 CFR part 520) (§ 520.1807) was created (64 FR 23017, April 29, 1999) to accommodate oral piperazine products approved for use in chickens, turkeys, and swine consistent with DESI findings and human food safety requirements (DESI finalization). However to date, NADA 10-886 has not been DESI finalized. Accordingly, § 520.1807 will not be amended to reflect the approval of NADA 10-886 until the current sponsor of that NADA submits a supplemental NADA adequate for DESI finalization.
In addition, § 520.1806 has been found to inaccurately list Akzo Nobel as the sponsor of an oral piperazine product approved for use in dogs. This error occurred during the codification of a previous change of sponsor for NADA 10-886 (59 FR 28763, June 3, 1994). Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in § 520.1806 to remove Akzo Nobel's drug labeler code and to reflect the current format.
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.Start List of Subjects
