In a notice published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADAs 014-485, 032-322, 044-655, 045-288, 049-890, 055-034, 055-052, 065-158, 065-259, 065-488, 095-953, 100-689, 100-690, 107-957, 111-069, 131-956, 131-957, 133-490, 140-842, and 140-958, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective February 13, 2012. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these withdrawals of approval and a current format.

Following these withdrawals of approval, Evsco Pharmaceuticals, an Affiliate of IGI, Inc.; Medical Developments International, Ltd.; and Norco Mills of Norfolk, Inc., are no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for these firms.

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.
