First Priority, Inc., 1585 Todd Farm Dr., Elgin, IL 60123, filed ANADA 200-362 for PRICONAZOLE (miconazole nitrate) Lotion 1% and PRICONAZOLE (miconazole nitrate) Spray 1% for topical use on dogs and cats for the treatment of certain fungal infections. First Priority's PRICONAZOLE Lotion 1% and PRICONAZOLE Spray 1% are approved as generic copies of Schering-Plough Animal Health Corp.'s CONOFITE Lotion 1% and Spray 1%, approved under NADA 95-184. The ANADA is approved as of November 14, 2005, and 21 CFR 524.1443 is amended 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.

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.
