American Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, Inc., 1401 Joel East Rd., Fort Worth, TX 76140, filed ANADA 200-388 that provides for veterinary prescription use of GB (gentamicin sulfate and betamethasone valerate) Topical Spray in dogs. American Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, Inc.'s GB Topical Spray is Start Printed Page 22822approved as a generic copy of Schering-Plough Animal Health Corp.'s GENTOCIN Topical Spray, approved under NADA 132-338. The ANADA is approved as of April 7, 2009, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 524.1044f to reflect the approval.

In addition, American Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics, Inc., is not currently listed in the animal drug regulations as a sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to add entries for this sponsor.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

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.
