SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Taro Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc., 3 Skyline Dr., Hawthorne, NY 10532, filed ANADA 200-457 that provides for veterinary prescription use of Mupirocin Ointment USP, 2% for the treatment of bacterial skin infections in dogs. Taro Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.'s Mupirocin Ointment USP, 2% is approved as a generic copy of Pfizer, Inc.'s BACTODERM Ointment approved under NADA 140-839. The ANADA is approved as of November 29, 2010, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 524.1465 to reflect the approval.

In addition, Taro Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc., has not been previously listed in the animal drug regulations as a sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, the tables in 21 CFR 510.600(c) are being amended to add entries for this firm.

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 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.
