I. Approval Actions

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during April, May, and June 2018, as listed in table 1. In addition, FDA is informing the public of the availability, where applicable, of documentation of environmental review required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and, for actions requiring review of safety or effectiveness data, summaries of the basis of approval (FOI Summaries) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). These public documents may be seen in the office of the Dockets Management Staff (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

1 The Agency has carefully considered an environmental assessment (EA) of the potential environmental impact of this action and has made a finding of no significant impact (FONSI).

II. Technical Amendments

With the approval of NADA 141-481, Kindred Biosciences, Inc. is now the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, we are amending § 510.600(c) to add the name, address, and drug labeler code of this sponsor.

Piramal Healthcare Ltd., Piramal Tower, Ganpatrao Kadam Marg, Lower Parel, Mumbai-400 013, India, has informed FDA that it has changed its name and address to Piramal Enterprises Ltd., Ananta, Agastya Corporate Park, Opp Fire Brigade, Kamani Junction, LBS Mag Kurla (West), Mumbai, 400070, India. We are amending § 510.600(c) to reflect this change.

We are also making technical amendments to update the scientific name of a pathogenic bacterium and to accurately list the concentrations of active ingredients in an otic dosage form new animal drug. We are also making a technical amendment to correct the sponsor of epsiprantel tablets. These actions are being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

In addition, we are reformatting the regulations to create a tabular display of Start Printed Page 64739the approved uses of narasin and a separate section for uses of a fixed-ratio, combination drug Type A medicated article containing narasin and nicarbazin. These actions are being taken to improve the readability, consistency, and accuracy of the regulations.

III. Legal Authority

This final rule is issued under section 512(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 360b(i)), which requires Federal Register publication of “notice[s] . . . effective as a regulation,” of the conditions of use of approved new animal drugs. This rule sets forth technical amendments to the regulations to codify recent actions on approved new animal drug applications and corrections to improve the accuracy of the regulations, and as such does not impose any burden on regulated entities.

Although denominated a rule pursuant to the FD&C Act, this document 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. Likewise, this is not a rule subject to Executive Order 12866, which defines a rule as “an agency statement of general applicability and future effect, which the agency intends to have the force and effect of law, that is designed to implement, interpret, or prescribe law or policy or to describe the procedure or practice requirements of an agency.”
