At this time, the regulations are being amended to reflect these changes of sponsorship.

Following these changes of sponsorship, LFB USA, Inc., is now the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, § 510.600 (21 CFR 510.600) is being amended to add this Start Printed Page 34278firm to the list of sponsors of approved applications.

The animal drug regulations are also being amended to reflect several non-substantive changes. These technical amendments are 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.
