FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: George K. Haibel, Center for 
Veterinary Medicine (HFV-6), Food and Drug Administration, 7519

as listed in table 1. In addition, FDA is informing the public of the 
availability, where applicable, of documentation of environmental 
review required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and, 
for actions requiring review of safety or effectiveness data, summaries 
of the basis of approval (FOI Summaries) under the Freedom of 
Information Act (FOIA). These public documents may be seen in the 
Division of Dockets Management (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration,

Monday through Friday. Persons with access to the Internet may obtain 
these documents through the Center for Veterinary Medicine's (CVM's) 
FOIA Electronic Reading Room at http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/OfficeofFoods/CVM/CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/default.htm.
    In addition, FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect 
changes of sponsorship for an NADA and ANADA, and a change of a 
sponsor's drug labeler code.
    RMS Laboratories, Inc., 1903 East First St., Vidalia, GA 30474, has 
informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and 
interest in, NADA 141-210 for GENESIS (triamcinolone acetonide) Topical 
Spray to Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Ft. Worth, TX 76137. 
Following this change of sponsorship, RMS Laboratories, Inc., will no 
longer be the sponsor of an approved application.
    Teva Animal Health, Inc., 3915 South 48th Street Ter., St. Joseph, 
MO 64503, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and 
all rights and interest in, ANADA 200-176 for PRAZITECH (praziquantel) 
Injectable Solution to Cross Vetpharm Group Ltd., Broomhill Rd., 
Tallaght, Dublin 24, Ireland.
    Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, IL 60064, has informed FDA of a 
change in drug labeler code. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the 
regulations in 21 CFR 510.600 to reflect this change of drug labeler 
code and to remove entries for RMS Laboratories, Inc., and in 21 CFR 
parts 522 and 529 to make conforming changes to Abbott Laboratories' 
product listings.
    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.

\1\ Supplemental approval under section 512(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
\2\ The Agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33 that this action is categorically excluded (CE) from the requirement to submit an environmental
  assessment (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.
\3\ Based on its review of an EA submitted by the sponsor, the Agency has concluded that this action will not have a significant impact on the human
  environment and that an EIS is not required. A finding of no significant impact (FONSI) has been prepared.
