21 CFR Parts 520, 522, 529, and 558

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


New Animal Drugs; Bacitracin Methylene Disalicylate; Dinoprost 
Solution; Gonadorelin Hydrochloride; Progesterone Intravaginal Inserts; 
Salinomycin; Ractopamine; Tylosin

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 June 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 remove a cross-reference to a combination drug 
medicated feed that is no longer codified.

DATES: This rule is effective July 31, 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 June 2014 as 
listed in table 1. In addition, FDA is informing the public of the 
availability, where applicable, of documentation of environmental 
review 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 (CVM) 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 in 21 CFR 558.76 to remove 
a cross-reference to a combination drug medicated feed which was 
removed in earlier corrections to part 558 (79 FR 10976, February 27, 
2014). 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.
