SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

IMPAX Laboratories, Inc., 30831 Huntwood Ave., Hayward, CA 94544, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-366 for NOVOX (carprofen) caplets which are approved for veterinary prescription use in dogs for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis (70 FR 30625, May 27, 2005). The supplement provides for use of NOVOX caplets for the control of postoperative pain associated with soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of July 27, 2006, and 21 CFR 520.309 is amended to reflect the approval.

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.

The agency 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.
