SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Fort Dodge Animal Health, A Division of Wyeth Holdings Corp., P.O. Box 1339, Fort Dodge, IA 50501, filed a supplement to NADA 34-705 that provides for veterinary prescription use of EQUIPOISE (boldenone undecylenate) by injection in horses. The supplemental NADA provides for a revised indication and food safety warning on labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of October 7, 2005, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.204 to reflect the approval and a current format.

Approval of this supplemental NADA did not require review of additional safety or effectiveness data. Therefore, a freedom of information summary is not required.

FDA 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.
