SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Phibro Animal Health Corp., 65 Challenger Rd., 3d Floor, Ridgefield Park, NJ 07660 has requested that FDA withdraw approval of NADA 098-371 for use of nicarbazin, penicillin, and roxarsone in 3-way, combination drug Type C medicated feeds for broiler chickens and NADA 098-374 for use of nicarbazin and penicillin in 2-way, combination drug Type C medicated feeds for broiler chickens because the products are no longer manufactured or marketed. Accordingly, 21 CFR 558.366 and 558.460 are being amended to reflect the withdrawal of approval.

R. P. Scherer North America, P.O. Box 5600, Clearwater, FL 33518 has requested that FDA withdraw approval of NADA 123-116 for Diethylcarbamazine Citrate Capsules used in dogs for the prevention of heartworm disease because the product is no longer manufactured or marketed. Accordingly, 21 CFR 520.622d is being amended to reflect the withdrawal of approval.

Following this withdrawal of approval, R. P. Scherer North America is no longer the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for these firms.

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADA 098-371, NADA 098-374, and NADA 123-116, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these voluntary withdrawals of approval.

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.
