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 January and February 2014. 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 previous approval of 
revised food safety warnings. This is being done to improve the 
accuracy of the regulations. 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 April 1, 2014.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA is amending the animal drug regulations 
to reflect approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs during January and 
February 2014, 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. Marketing exclusivity and patent information may be 
accessed in FDA's publication, Approved Animal Drug Products Online 
(Green Book) at: http://www.fda.gov/AnimalVeterinary/Products/ApprovedAnimalDrugProducts/default.htm.
    In addition, the regulations are being amended to reflect the 
previous approval of revised food safety warnings for florfenicol 
injectable solutions, florfenicol and flunixin combination drug 
injectable solution, ceftiofur hydrochloride intramammary infusions, 
and salinomycin medicated feeds. These amendments are being done to 
improve the accuracy of the regulations.
    The regulations are also being amended to reflect two changes of 
sponsorship. Dechra, Ltd., Dechra House, Jamage Industrial Estate, 
Talke Pits, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, ST7 1XW, United Kingdom, has 
informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and 
interest in, NADA 141-044 for OVUPLANT (deslorelin acetate implant) to 
Virbac AH, Inc., 3200 Meacham Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76137. Also, West-
Ward Pharmaceutical Corp., 465 Industrial Way West, Eatontown, NJ 
07724, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all 
rights and interest in, ANADA 200-323 for Phenylbutazone Tablets to 
Hikma Pharmaceuticals LLC, P.O. Box 182400, Bayader Wadi Seer, Amman, 
Jordan 11118. Accordingly, the Agency is amending the regulations to 
reflect these changes of sponsorship.

\1\ The Agency has carefully considered an environmental assessment (EA) of the potential environmental impact
  of this action and has made a finding of no significant impact (FONSI).
\2\ The Agency has determined 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.
\3\ CE granted under 21 CFR 25.33(d)(1).
\4\ The regulation in 21 CFR 558.55 has been amended in a separate rule (79 FR 10980, February 27, 2014).
\5\ CE granted under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(2).
\6\ CE granted under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(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.
