SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Phibro Animal Health, 65 Challenger Rd., 3d floor, Ridgefield Park, NJ 07660, filed a supplement to NADA 13-663 that provides for the use of COCCIPROL (amprolium) 9.6% Oral Solution to make medicated drinking water for chickens and turkeys for the treatment of coccidiosis. The supplemental NADA provides for label revisions associated with a previous change of sponsorship and other minor changes. The supplemental NADA is approved as of July 8, 2008, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 520.100 to reflect the approval. The product approval is being codified for the first time. Also, § 520.100 is revised to reflect current pathogen spelling.

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.
