[Docket No. FDA-2012-N-0002]


New Animal Drugs; Ceftiofur Sodium; Lincomycin Powder; Naracin; 
Tylosin

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal 
drug regulations to reflect approval actions for new animal drug 
applications (NADAs) and abbreviated new animal drug applications 
(ANADAs) during March 2012. FDA is also informing the public of the 
availability of summaries of the basis of approval and of environmental 
review documents, where applicable.

DATES: This rule is effective May 17, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: George K. Haibel, Center for 
Veterinary Medicine (HFV-6), Food and Drug Administration, 7519 
Standish Pl., Rockville, MD 20855, 240-276-9019, 
email:george.haibel@fda.hhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) 
is adopting use of a monthly Federal Register document to codify 
approval actions for NADAs and abbreviated ANADAs. CVM will no longer 
publish a separate rule for each action. This approach will allow a 
more efficient use of available resources.
    In this document, FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to 
reflect the original and supplemental approval actions during March 
2012, as listed in table 1 of this document. FDA is also informing the 
public of the availability of environmental review documents required 
under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), where applicable. 
For actions requiring review of safety or effectiveness data, summaries 
of the basis of approval (FOI Summaries) under the Freedom of 
Information Act (FOIA) may be seen in the Division of Dockets 
Management (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 determined under 21 CFR 25.33 that this action is CE from the requirement to submit an EA or
  an environmental impact statement (EIS) because it is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively
  have a significant effect on the human environment.

    This rule 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.
