Food and Drug Administration, HHS.
Final rule; technical amendment.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of June 25, 2007 (72 FR 34752). The final rule established current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements in manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding operations for dietary supplements. The final rule was published with an inadvertent error in the codified section. This document corrects that error. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the agency's regulations.
This rule is effective March 12, 2008.Start Further Info

In the Federal Register of June 25, 2007 (72 FR 34752), FDA established CGMP requirements in manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding operations for dietary supplements. The preamble of that final rule discusses the requirements of § 111.27(b) (21 CFR 111.27(b)) for a person subject to the rule to calibrate instruments and controls used in manufacturing or testing a component or dietary supplement both before and after first use (72 FR 34752 at 34824).
The provisions regarding calibration of such instruments and controls, both before and after first use, also appeared in both the preamble and codified sections of the proposed rule (proposed 21 CFR 111.25(b)) (68 FR 12157 at 12191 and 12255, March 13, 2003). Due to an inadvertent error, the codified section of the final rule omitted the word “and” between § 111.27(b)(1) and (b)(2) (72 FR 34752 at 34947). Consequently, it is less clear that calibration must be carried out both before and after first use, as intended. This document corrects that error, by inserting the word “and” at the end of § 111.27(b)(1) so that § 111.27(b)(1) and (b)(2) are read together as one requirement.Start List of Subjects
