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 December 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 of an NADA and a 
change to a sponsor's address.

DATES: This rule is effective February 27, 2014.

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 December 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 Center for Veterinary Medicine FOIA 
Electronic Reading Room: http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/OfficeofFoods/CVM/CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/default.htm.
    In addition, West Agro, Inc., 11100 North Congress Ave., Kansas 
City, MO 64153 has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, 
and all rights and interest in, NADA 055-028 for QUARTERMASTER 
(penicillin G procaine and dihydrostreptomycin sulfate) Dry Cow 
Treatment to HQ Specialty Pharma Corp., 120 Rte. 17 North, Suite 130, 
Paramus, NJ 07652. Following this change of sponsorship, West Agro, 
Inc., is no longer a sponsor of an approved NADA, and HQ Specialty 
Pharma Corp. is now the sponsor of an approved NADA. Also, Putney, 
Inc., 400 Congress St., Suite 200, Portland, ME 04101 has informed FDA 
of a change of address to One Monument Sq., Suite 400, Portland, ME 
04101. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the regulations to reflect 
this change of sponsorship and change of sponsor's address.

\1\ The Agency has determined under Sec.   25.33 (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 because it is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a
  significant effect on the human environment.
\2\ CE granted under Sec.   25.33(a)(2).
\3\ CE granted under Sec.   25.33(a)(1).
\4\ 21 CFR 520.1192 already contains a drug labeler code entry for this sponsor.
\5\ The Agency has carefully considered an EA of the potential environmental impact of this action and has made a finding of no significant impact
  (FONSI).
\6\ CE granted under Sec.   25.33(d)(1).

    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.
