I. Approval Actions

FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during April, May, and June 2019, 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.

II. Change of Sponsor's Names and Addresses

Medicis Dermatologics, Inc., 8125 North Hayden Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85258 has informed FDA that it has changed its name and address to Bausch Health US, LLC, 400 Somerset Corporate Blvd., Bridgewater, NJ 08807. Accordingly, we are amending § 510.600(c) to reflect these changes.

III. Technical Amendments

A section describing tolerances of hetacillin residues (21 CFR 556.316) has been added to subpart B of part 556. This section cross-references the sole hetacillin product approved for use in food-producing animals, an intramammary infusion for use in lactating dairy cows (21 CFR 526.1130). This new section codifies FDA's finding at the time of product approval that, because hetacillin is rapidly hydrolyzed to ampicillin, existing ampicillin tolerances provide appropriate tolerances for hetacillin in edible tissues of cattle (38 FR 31172, November 12, 1973). This amendment is being made to make the regulations more comprehensive.

FDA is also revising the regulations to reflect the approved conditions of use of sulfaquinoxaline soluble powder as a veterinary prescription product for oral administration to cattle as a drench. Finally, we are also revising the regulations for use of monensin in medicated goat feed to reflect the approved incorporation level. These actions are being taken to improve the accuracy of the regulations.

IV. Legal Authority

This final rule is issued under section 512(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the 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.”

Feeding undiluted or mixing errors resulting in high concentrations of monensin has been fatal to cattle and could be fatal to goats. Must be thoroughly mixed in feeds before use. Do not exceed the levels of monensin recommended in the feeding directions, as reduced average daily gains may result. If feed refusals containing monensin are fed to other groups of cattle, the concentration of monensin in the refusals and amount of refusals fed should be taken into consideration to prevent monensin overdosing.

A decrease in dry matter intake may be noticed in some animals receiving lubabegron.
