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

    Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice 
that approval of NADAs 030-525, 035-825, 046-822, and 103-090, and all 
supplements and amendments thereto, is withdrawn, effective September 
20, 2012. As provided in the regulatory text of this document, the 
animal drug regulations are amended to reflect these voluntary 
withdrawals of approval.
    Following these withdrawals of approval, Endo Pharmaceuticals Inc. 
and United Vaccines, A Harlan Sprague Dawley, Inc., Co., will no longer 
be the sponsor of an approved application. Accordingly, 21 CFR 
510.600(c) is being amended to remove the entries for these firms.

[[Page 55414]]

    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.

List of Subjects

21 CFR Part 510

    Administrative practice and procedure, Animal drugs, Labeling, 
Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

21 CFR Part 522
