Norbrook Laboratories, Ltd., Station Works, Newry BT35 6JP, Northern Ireland, filed ANADA 200-452 that provides for use of OXYTET 10 (oxytetracycline hydrochloride) Injection in beef cattle, beef calves, nonlactating dairy cattle, and dairy calves for the treatment of various bacterial diseases. Norbrook Laboratories, Ltd.'s OXYTET 10 Injection is approved as a generic copy of Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc.'s, MEDAMYCIN Injectable approved under NADA 108-963. The ANADA is approved as of June 27, 2007, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1662a 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.

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.
