SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during October 2013, as listed in table 1. In addition, FDA is informing the public of the availability, where applicable, of documentation of environmental review required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and, for actions requiring review of safety or effectiveness data, summaries of the basis of approval (FOI Summaries) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). These public documents 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. Persons with access to the Internet may obtain these documents at the CVM FOIA Electronic Reading Room: http://www.fda.gov/​AboutFDA/​CentersOffices/​OfficeofFoods/​CVM/​CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/​default.htm.

In addition, Eka Chemicals, Inc., 1850 Parkway Pl. SE., suite 1200, Marietta, GA 30067 has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 141-255 for PEROX-AID (hydrogen peroxide) 35% Solution to Western Chemical, Inc., 1269 Lattimore Rd., Ferndale, WA 98248. Following this change of sponsorship, Eka Chemicals, Inc., is no longer a sponsor of an approved NADA. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the regulations to reflect this change of sponsorship and change of sponsor status.

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.
