Food and Drug Administration

21 CFR Part 558

New Animal Drugs For Use In Animal Feeds; Bambermycins; Technical 

AGENCY:  Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.


SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the animal 
drug regulation for bambermycins to correct several cross-references in 
that regulation. In approving a new animal drug application (NADA) 
filed by Hoechst Roussel Vet, FDA failed to amend certain cross-
references to conform to amendments in the approval document and to 
provide certain other cross-references. This document provides for 
those conforming amendments and cross-references.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 25, 1998.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David L. Gordon, Center for Veterinary 
Medicine (HFV-6), Food and Drug Administration, 7500 Standish Pl., 
Rockville, MD 20855, 301-594-1739.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  In amending the bambermycins regulation to 
reflect approval of Hoechst Roussel Vet's NADA 141-034 (use of 
bambermycins Type A medicated articles to make Type C medicated cattle 
feeds), FDA amended Sec. 558.95 (21 CFR 558.95) by redesignating 
paragraph (b) as paragraph (d) (see 62 FR 8373, February 25, 1997), but 
failed to amend the cross-references in paragraph (a). Furthermore, in 
approving NADA 141-034 to establish several added uses in 
Sec. 558.95(b)(4) (currently Sec. 558.95(d)(4)) (see 59 FR 15624, April 
4, 1994 and 61 FR 43654, August 26, 1996), FDA failed to provide 
reference in paragraph (a)(5) to uses in paragraphs (b)(4)(ii) and 
(b)(4)(iii) (current paragraphs (d)(4)(ii) and (d)(4)(iii)). Section 
558.95 is amended by revising paragraph (a), by revising the cross-
references to paragraphs (d)(1), (d)(2), (d)(3), and (d)(4), as 
appropriate, and by expanding those references in paragraph (a)(5) to 
reflect all uses in paragraph (d)(4).
