IVX Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed ANADA 200-365 that provides for veterinary prescription use of Glycopyrrolate Injectable as a preanesthetic agent in dogs and cats. IVX Animal Health, Inc.'s Glycopyrrolate Injectable is approved as a generic copy of Fort Dodge Animal Health's, Division of Wyeth's ROBINUL-V (glycopyrrolate), approved under NADA 101-777. The ANADA is approved as of October 2, 2006, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1066 to reflect the approval and a current format. 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.
