SW 73rd Ave., suite 110, Miami, FL 33155. As provided in the regulatory

III. Withdrawals of Approval

    In addition, during March and April 2016, the following two 
sponsors have requested that FDA withdraw approval of the NADAs and 
ANADAs listed in the following table because the products are no longer 
manufactured or marketed:

\1\ These NADAs were identified as being affected by guidance for industry #213, ``New Animal Drugs and New
  Animal Drug Combination Products Administered in or on Medicated Feed or Drinking Water of Food-Producing
  Animals: Recommendations for Drug Sponsors for Voluntarily Aligning Product Use Conditions with GFI #209,''
  December 2013.

    Elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA gave notice 
that approval of NADAs 007-076, 008-244, 041-955, 049-729, 100-128, and 
ANADA 200-307, and all supplements and amendments thereto, is 
withdrawn, effective June 20, 2016. As provided in the regulatory text 
of this document, the animal drug regulations are amended to reflect 
these voluntary withdrawals of approval.

IV. Technical Amendments

    FDA has noticed that the section heading for 21 CFR 520.1430 does 
not accurately reflect the new animal drug for which approved 
conditions of use are codified. At this time, we are amending the 
section heading to read ``Mibolerone'' rather than ``Megestrol acetate 
tablets.'' This action is being taken 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.
