Section 806.1(a) (21 CFR 806.1(a)) refers to a subsection of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act that was redesignated as a result of FDAAA (Pub. L. 110-85). FDA is amending § 806.1(a) to update the obsolete reference.

FDA is publishing the document as a final rule under the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 551, et seq.). FDA has determined that good cause exists to dispense with prior notice and public comment under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B) and 21 CFR 10.40(e)(1) since such notice and comment are unnecessary because this amendment to the regulation provides only a technical change to update an obsolete citation. In addition, FDA finds good cause to provide for this regulation to be effective immediately upon publication under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).

FDA has determined under 21 CFR 25.30(i) that this final rule 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 final rule contains information collection provisions that are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). The collections of information in 21 CFR part 806 have been approved under OMB control number 0910-0359, which expires May 31, 2014.
