21 CFR Parts 510 and 558

New Animal Drugs; Change of Sponsor

AGENCY: Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal drug regulations to reflect a change of sponsor for six approved new animal drug applications (NADAs) from Koffolk, Inc., to Phibro Animal Health.

DATES: This rule is effective December 7, 2001.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lonnie W. Luther, Center for Veterinary Medicine (HFV-102), Food and Drug Administration, 7500 Standish Pl., Rockville, MD 20855, 301-827-0209, e-mail: lluther@cvm.fda.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Koffolk, Inc., P.O. Box 675935, 14735 Las Quintas, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067, has informed FDA that it has transferred ownership of, and all rights and interest in, the following NADAs to Phibro Animal Health, 710 Rte. 46 East, suite 401, Fairfield, NJ 07004.

NADA Number

Established Names of Ingredients

9-476............................. Nicarbazin 98-378............................ Nicarbazin/Bacitracin Methylene Disalicylate 107-997........................... Nicarbazin/Lincomycin/Roxarsone 108-115........................... Nicarbazin/Roxarsone 108-116........................... Nicarbazin/Lincomycin 141-146........................... Nicarbazin/Bacitracin Zinc

Accordingly, the agency is amending the regulations in 21 CFR 558.366 to reflect the transfer of ownership.

Following the change of sponsor of these NADAs, Koffolk, Inc., is no longer the sponsor of any approved applications. Therefore, 21 CFR 510.600(c) is amended to remove the entries for this sponsor.

[[Page 63500]]

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.

List of Subjects

21 CFR Part 510

Administrative practice and procedure, Animal drugs, Labeling, Reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

21 CFR Part 558
