21 CFR Part 522

[Docket No. FDA-2014-N-0002]


New Animal Drugs; Ceftiofur Sodium; Gentamicin; Xylazine

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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 March 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 a change of sponsorship for an ANADA.

DATES: This rule is effective April 15, 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 March 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.
    Also, the regulations are being amended to reflect the previous 
approval of revised food safety warnings for ceftiofur sodium powder 
for injection. This amendment is being made to improve the accuracy of 
the regulations.
    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.
