Direct final rule; confirmation of effective date.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is confirming the effective date of July 30, 2014, for the final rule that appeared in the Federal Register of March 17, 2014. The direct final rule amends the regulation regarding the confidentiality of data and information in and about new animal drug application files to change when certain approval-related information will be disclosed by the Agency. This change ensures that the Agency is able to update its list of approved new animal drug products within the statutory timeframe. It also permits more timely public disclosure of approval-related information, increasing the transparency of FDA decisionmaking in the approval of new animal drugs. This document confirms the effective date of the direct final rule.
Effective date of final rule published in the Federal Register of March 17, 2014 (79 FR 14609) confirmed: July 30, 2014.
