II. Changes of Sponsorship

Bayer HealthCare LLC, Animal Health Division, P.O. Box 390, Shawnee, Mission, KS 66201 has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, the following approved applications to Huvepharma EOOD, 5th Floor, 3A Nikolay Haitov Str., 1113 Sofia, Bulgaria:

As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these changes of sponsorship.

III. Withdrawals of Approval

In addition, during May and June 2016, Elanco US, Inc., 2500 Innovation Way, Greenfield, IN 46140 requested that FDA withdraw approval of the NADAs listed in the following table because the products are no longer manufactured or marketed:

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADAs 012-548, 013-162, 013-388, 015-166, 127-507, 141-640, 141-170, and 141-198, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective September 8, 2016. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these voluntary withdrawals of approval.Start Printed Page 59133

IV. Technical Amendments

FDA has noticed that a drug labeler code in 21 CFR 520.2325a does not accurately reflect the sponsorship of a new animal drug application. At this time, we are amending this section. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

Also, ConAgra Pet Products Co., 3902 Leavenworth St., Omaha, NE 68105 has informed FDA that it is changing its name and address to Sergeant's Pet Care Products, Inc., 10077 S. 134th St., Omaha, NE 68138.

Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., 33 Hayden Ave., Lexington, MA 02421 has informed FDA that it has changed its address to 100 College St., New Haven, CT 06510. At this time, this firm is being added to the list of sponsors of approved application in 21 CFR 510.600(c) which we had not done previously.

FDA has noticed that the maximum concentration of sulfadimethoxine with ormetoprim in 2-way, fixed-ratio combination drug Type B medicated feeds in 21 CFR 558.4 was amended in error. At this time, we are revising this section to provide for appropriate concentrations in Type B medicated feeds for salmonids and catfish. This action is being taken 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.
