SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

FDA is issuing this final rule to amend its regulations by updating the organizational information in part 5 (21 CFR part 5).

The agency has updated the references to part 5, subpart M.

The portion of this final rule updating the organizational information in part 5, subpart M is a rule of agency organization, procedure, or practice. FDA is issuing these provisions as a final rule without publishing a general notice of proposed rulemaking because such notice is not required for rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(A). For the conforming changes to the other regulations, the agency finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) to dispense with prior notice and comment, and good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3) to make these conforming changes effective less than 30 days after publication because such notice and comment and delayed effective date are unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. These conforming changes merely update the footnotes in part 5, subpart M. These changes do not result Start Printed Page 16354in any substantive change in the regulations.
