Zilpaterol

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 May 2013. FDA is also informing the public of the 
availability of summaries the basis of approval and of environmental 
review documents, where applicable.

DATES: This rule is effective July 15, 2013.

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, ghaibel@fda.hhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is amending the animal drug regulations 
to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during May 2013, 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, 
5630 Fishers Lane, Rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 
p.m., Monday through Friday. Persons with access to the Internet may 
obtain these documents at the CVM FOIA Electronic Reading Room: http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/OfficeofFoods/CVM/CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/default.htm.
    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.
