As provided in the regulatory text, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these approval actions. As they are now the sponsor of an approved application, QBiotics Group Ltd. and Revivicor, Inc. will be added to the list of sponsors of approved applications in 21 CFR 510.600(c).

II. Technical Amendments

FDA is making the following amendments to improve the accuracy, consistency, and readability of the animal drug regulations:

  • 21 CFR 558.128 is amended to reflect the sponsors of approved conditions of use for chlortetracycline in beef cattle.
  • 21 CFR 558.342 is amended to reformat special considerations for labeling and manufacture of melengestrol medicated feeds.
  • Typographical errors are being corrected wherever they have been found.Start Printed Page 17063

III. Legal Authority

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. This 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 the conditions of use of an approved or conditionally approved new animal drug and the name and address of the drug′s sponsor in a “notice, which upon publication shall be effective as a regulation.” A notice published pursuant to section 512(i) is not subject to the notice-and-comment rulemaking requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 551 et seq. See section 512(i) of the FD&C Act; 21 CFR 10.40(e)(3); S. Rep. 90-1308, at 5 (1968).

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.”
