The supplemental NADA is approved as of February 8, 2008, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 522.1660b to reflect the approval.

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.
