SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

FDA is amending the food additive regulations for a required labeling statement in 21 CFR 573.480Formic acid for use of formic acid in complete feed for swine and poultry. In error, we did not revise all parts of the regulation necessary to reflect the approval of BASF Corp.'s FAP 2301 (83 FR 20, January 2, 2018). These revisions are entirely within the approved conditions of use of formic acid under FAP 2301. This action is being taken to improve the accuracy and clarity of the regulations.

Publication of this document constitutes final action under the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that notice and public comment are unnecessary because this amendment to the regulations provides only technical changes to correct an inaccurate statement and is nonsubstantive.
