End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


IVX Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, MO 64503, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-247 that provides for the use of Oxytetracycline HCl Soluble Powder-343 in several species. The supplement revises labeling of generic oxytetracycline soluble powder with the current scientific names of the causative bacteria of foulbrood of honeybees. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of November 9, 2006, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.1660d to reflect the approval and a current format.

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 the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
