SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Ft. Worth, TX 76137, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-291 for CLINSOL (clindamycin hydrochloride) Liquid. The supplement provides for an expanded dose range and revised wording of indications for the oral use of clindamycin hydrochloride liquid in dogs and cats for the treatment of certain bacterial diseases. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of June 12, 2006, and the regulations are amended in § 520.447 (21 CFR 520.447) to reflect the approval and a current format.

In addition, FDA has found that a 2003 change of sponsorship for CLINSOL Liquid (68 FR 55823, September 29, 2003) is not reflected in the Code of Federal Regulations. Accordingly, § 520.447 is being revised to reflect the correct sponsor drug labeler code. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

Approval of this supplemental ANADA 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 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 congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
