21 CFR Parts 522 and 556

[Docket No. FDA-2012-N-0002]


Implantation or Injectable Dosage Form New Animal Drugs; 
Maropitant; Tildipirosin

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 May 2012. FDA is also informing the public of the 
availability of summaries of the basis of approval and of environmental 
review documents, where applicable.

DATES: This rule is effective July 3, 2012.

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, 
email:[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) 
is adopting use of a monthly Federal Register document to codify 
approval actions for NADAs and ANADAs. CVM will no longer publish a 
separate rule for each action. This approach will allow a more 
efficient use of available resources.

    In this document, FDA is amending the animal drug regulations to 
reflect the original and supplemental approval actions during May 2012, 
as listed in table 1 of this document. 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 (freedom of information 
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 at http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/CentersOffices/OfficeofFoods/CVM/CVMFOIAElectronicReadingRoom/default.htm.
    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.
