\1\ The Agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33 that this action is categorically excluded (CE) from the requirement to submit an environmental
  assessment or an environmental impact statement 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.

Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.
