SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during January and February 2014, 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 Center for Veterinary Medicine FOIA Electronic Reading Room: http://www.fda.gov/​AboutFDA/​CentersOffices/​OfficeofFoods/​CVM/​CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/​default.htm. Marketing exclusivity and patent information may be accessed in FDA's publication, Approved Animal Drug Products Online (Green Book) at: http://www.fda.gov/​AnimalVeterinary/​Products/​ApprovedAnimalDrugProducts/​default.htm.

In addition, the regulations are being amended to reflect the previous approval of revised food safety warnings for florfenicol injectable solutions, florfenicol and flunixin combination drug injectable solution, ceftiofur hydrochloride intramammary infusions, and salinomycin medicated feeds. These amendments are being done to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

The regulations are also being amended to reflect two changes of sponsorship. Dechra, Ltd., Dechra House, Jamage Industrial Estate, Talke Pits, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, ST7 1XW, United Kingdom, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 141-044 for OVUPLANT (deslorelin acetate implant) to Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76137. Also, West-Ward Pharmaceutical Corp., 465 Industrial Way West, Eatontown, NJ 07724, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, ANADA 200-323 for Phenylbutazone Tablets to Hikma Pharmaceuticals LLC, P.O. Box 182400, Bayader Wadi Seer, Amman, Jordan 11118. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the regulations to reflect these changes of sponsorship.Start Printed Page 18157

2 The Agency has determined that this action is categorically excluded (CE) from the requirement to submit an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement because it is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment.

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.
