SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during July 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 (CVM) 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.

Also, the animal drug regulations are being amended in 21 CFR 522.955 to add a cross reference to a tolerance for an inactive vehicle in an injectable dosage form product. This amendment is being made to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

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.Start Printed Page 53135
