Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADAs 030-525, 035-825, 046-822, and 103-090, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective September 20, 2012. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these voluntary withdrawals of approval.

Following these withdrawals of approval, Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. and United Vaccines, A Harlan Sprague Dawley, Inc., Co., will no longer be 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.
