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 of a supplemental new animal drug application (NADA) filedby MoorMan's, Inc. The supplemental NADA provides for use of approved monensin Type A medicated articles to make free-choice, medicated feed blocks used for prevention and control of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii in pasture cattle.
DATES: This rule is effective December 7, 2001.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daniel A. Benz, Center for Veterinary Medicine (HFV-126), Food and Drug Administration, 7500 Standish Pl., Rockville, MD 20855, 301-827-0223.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: MoorMan's, Inc., 1000 North 30th St., Quincy, IL 62305-3115, fileda supplement to NADA 115-581 that provides for use of monensin Type A medicated articles to make free-choice, medicated protein/mineral blocks (MoorMan's Mintrate Blonde Block RU and MoorMan's Mintrate Red Block RU) used for increased rate of weight gain in cattle on pasture (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers) which may require supplemental feed. The supplemental NADA provides for use of these medicated feed blocks for the prevention and control of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii in pasture cattle. The supplemental NADA is approved as of September 27, 2001, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.355 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.
In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Dockets Management Branch (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.
The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(1) that these actions are of a type that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.
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.
