SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

FDA is amending our regulations in part 1140 (21 CFR part 1140) to reflect the change of an office name and the mailing address in the regulation. The office name was the Office of Compliance and the new office name is Office of Compliance and Enforcement. The mailing address for notices submitted under § 1140.30(a)(2) is updated to CTP's Document Control Center, 10903 New Hampshire Ave., Bldg. 71, Rm. G335, Silver Spring, MD 20993.

Publication of this document constitutes final action under the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that notice and public comment are unnecessary because the amendments to the regulations provide only technical changes to correct an office name and address, and are nonsubstantive. To the extent that 5 U.S.C. 553(d) applies, FDA has determined that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.
