1 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 have a significant effect on the human environment.
2 CE granted under 21 CFR 25.33(d)(1).
3 CE granted under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(1).
4 The regulation does not require amendment.

Also, the animal drug regulations are being amended to reflect approved labeling for hand feeding bambermycins medicated cattle feed. This technical 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.
