SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Fort Dodge Animal Health, Division of Wyeth, 800 Fifth St. NW., Fort Dodge, IA 50501, filed a supplement to NADA 140-854 for SYNANTHIC (oxfendazole) Bovine Dewormer Suspension, approved for oral use in cattle for the removal of various internal parasites. The supplemental NADA provides for revised scientific nomenclature for a parasite. The supplemental application is approved as of July 7, 2008, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.1630 to reflect the approval.

Approval of this supplemental NADA did not require review of additional safety or effectiveness data or information. Therefore, a freedom of information summary is not required.

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.
