Following the conditional approval of NADA 141-175, VetDC, Inc. will now be included in the list of sponsors of approved applications in § 510.600(c) (21 CFR 510.600(c)).

II. Change of Sponsorship

The regulations will be amended to reflect this change of sponsorship.

III. Withdrawals of Approval

During November and December 2016, the following sponsors requested that FDA withdraw approval of the NADAs listed in the following table because the products are no longer manufactured or marketed:

File No.SponsorProduct name21 CFR section
135-773Baxter Healthcare Corp., One Baxter Pkwy., Deerfield, IL 60015AERRANE (isoflurane USP)529.1186
200-421Hospira, Inc., 275 North Field Dr., Lake Forest, IL 60045Ceftiofur (ceftiofur sodium) for Injection522.313c

Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice that approval of NADA 135-773 and ANADA 200-524, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective March 13, 2017. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect this voluntary withdrawal of approval. Following this withdrawal of approval, neither Baxter Healthcare Corp. nor Hospira, Inc. is the sponsor of an approved application.

IV. Technical Amendments

iVaoes Animal Health, 4300 SW 73rd Ave., Suite 110, Miami, FL 33155 has informed FDA that it has changed its name to Ivaoes Animal Health. Accordingly, we are amending § 510.600 (c) to reflect this change of sponsor name. We are also making several technical amendments 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.
