SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Norbrook Laboratories, Ltd., Station Works, Newry BT35 6JP, Northern Ireland, filed a supplement to ANADA 200-437 that provides for use of NOROMECTIN (ivermectin) Injection for Cattle and Swine. The supplemental ANADA adds claims for persistent effectiveness against various species of external and internal parasites of cattle. The supplemental ANADA is approved as of October 5, 2007, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1192 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.
