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 July 2013. FDA is also informing the public of the 
availability of summaries of the basis of approval and of environmental 
review documents, where applicable. The animal drug regulations are 
also being amended to reflect a change of sponsorship for an ANADA.

DATES: This rule is effective October 25, 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; 
george.haibel@fda.hhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is amending the animal drug regulations 
to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during July 2013, as 
listed in table 1. In addition, FDA is informing the public of the 
availability, where

[[Page 63871]]

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.
    In addition, ECO LLC, 344 Nassau St., Princeton, NJ 08540 has 
informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and 
interest in, ANADA 200-348 for ECOMECTIN (ivermectin) Topical Solution 
to SmartVet USA, Inc., 22201 West Innovation Dr., Suite 170A, Olathe, 
KS 66061-1304. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the regulations to 
reflect this change of sponsorship.
    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.
