SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

G. C. Hanford Manufacturing Co., P.O. Box 1017, Syracuse, NY 13201, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 65-493 for Penicillin G Procaine Aqueous Suspension and NADA 65-500 for Penicillin G Benzathine and Penicillin G Procaine Suspension, to Norbrook Laboratories, Ltd., Station Works, Newry BT35 6JP, Northern Ireland. Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in 21 CFR 522.1696a and 522.1696b to reflect the transfer of ownership.

In addition, FDA has noticed that “G. C. Hanford” and “GTC Biotherapeutics, Inc.” are not spelled correctly in the listing of sponsors of approved NADAs. At this time, the table in 21 CFR 510.600(c)(1) is amended. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

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.
