SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during September and October 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.

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, Lloyd, Inc., 604 W. Thomas Ave., Shenandoah, IA 51601, has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, the following approved applications to Akorn Animal Health, Inc., 1925 West Field Ct., Suite 300, Lake Forest, IL 60045.

In addition, Veterinary Service, Inc. 4100 Bangs Ave., Modesto, CA 95356, has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 065-252 for STREP-SOL (streptomycin sulfate) Oral Solution to Huvepharma AD, 5th Floor, 3A Nikolay Haitov Str., 1113 Sofia, Bulgaria.

Also, Elanco Animal Health, Inc., A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, NADA 141-272 for RECONCILE (fluoxetine hydrochloride) Chewable Tablets to Nexcyon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 644 West Washington Ave., Madison, WI 53703.

At this time, the regulations are being amended to reflect these changes of sponsorship. Following these changes of sponsorship, Akorn Animal Health, Inc., Nexcyon Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Vétoquinol USA, Inc. will now be the sponsors of an approved application while Bioniche Animal Health USA, Inc. and Veterinary Service, Inc. will no longer be the sponsors of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is being amended to reflect these changes.

FDA is also amending the regulations at 21 CFR 558.76 to remove a limitation on the concentrations of bacitracin methylene disalicyclate Type A medicated articles that can be used to manufacture medicated feed for quail. In addition, FDA is removing reserved 21 CFR 558.105 for which there is no entry. These actions are being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

Also, Vétoquinol N.-A., Inc., 2000 chemin Georges, Lavaltrie (PQ), Canada, J5T 3S5, has requested that FDA withdraw approval of ANADA 200-305 for Oxytetracycline Hydrochloride Soluble Powder because the product is no longer manufactured or marketed. Note this ANADA was identified as being affected by guidance for industry (GFI) #213, “New Animal Drugs and New Animal Drug Combination Products Administered in or on Medicated Feed or Drinking Water of Food-Producing Animals: Recommendations for Drug Sponsors for Voluntarily Aligning Product Use Conditions with GFI #209,” December 2013.

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of ANADA 200-305, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective December 26, 2014. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect this voluntary withdrawal of approval.

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.
