SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending its regulations in part 1 (21 CFR part 1). Several sections in part 1 cite a fax number to which food facility registration forms under the Bioterrorism Act (Public Law 107-188) can be sent. This rule replaces the obsolete information with correct information.

The final rule contains no collection of information. Therefore, clearance by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 is not required.

Publication of this document constitutes final action on these changes under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). These amendments remove obsolete information and are not substantive. FDA therefore, for good cause, finds under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and (d)(3) that notice and comment are unnecessary.
