\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.
