Farnam Companies, Inc., 301 West Osborn, Phoenix, AZ 85013-3928, filed a supplement to NADA 100-616 for THRUSH-XX (copper naphthenate), a solution approved for topical use on horse and pony hooves as an aid in treating thrush. The supplemental NADA provides for a revised food safety warning on the labeling. The supplemental NADA is approved as of May 30, 2006, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 524.463 to reflect the approval and a current format.
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.
The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(d)(3) 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.Start List of Subjects
