SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pfizer, Inc., 235 East 42d St., New York, NY 10017-5755, filed a supplement to NADA 8-622 that provides for use of TERRAMYCIN-343 (oxytetracycline HCl) Soluble Powder for treatment of various bacterial diseases of livestock. The supplemental NADA revises labeling with the current genus for the causative bacteria for American foul brood of honeybees. The supplemental NADA is approved as of May 9, 2006, and the regulations in 21 CFR 520.1660d are amended to reflect the approval.

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

FDA has determined under § 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.
