FDA has discovered that an error appeared in the agency's codified regulations for part 601 (21 CFR part 601). In the Federal Register of December 28, 2007 (72 FR 73589), FDA published an interim final rule that inadvertently revised § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(D) (21 CFR 601.12(f)(3)(i)(D)) instead of adding a new paragraph, § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(E). Accordingly, § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(D), which was added in the Federal Register of January 24, 2006 (71 FR 3922), is being reincorporated into the regulations to replace current § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(D); current § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(D) is being redesignated as § 601.12(f)(3)(i)(E). This document corrects the errors described previously. Publication of this document constitutes final action under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that notice and public comment are unnecessary because this amendment is nonsubstantive.
