SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Cross Vetpharm Group Ltd., Broomhill Rd., Tallaght, Dublin 24, Ireland, filed ANADA 200-488 for the use of AMPROMED-P (amprolium) for poultry, a water-soluble powder used for the treatment of coccidiosis in chickens and turkeys. Cross Vetpharm Group Ltd.'s AMPROMED-P for Poultry is approved as a generic copy of Huvepharma AD's AMPROL 128 (amprolium) 20% Soluble Powder, approved under NADA 33-165. The ANADA is approved as of May 23, 2011, and the regulations in 21 CFR 520.100 are amended to reflect the approval.

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.

FDA 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.
