CVM Proposes Rules for Liquid Medicated Feed

FDA is proposing to change the regu-lations for liquid medicated feed
and free-choice medicated feed. By changing the regulations for liquid
medicated feed, FDA intends to clarify: what data are required to
demonstrate chemical and physical stability of a drug in liquid feed,
how such data may be submitted for use in the new animal drug approval
process, and which liquid medicated feeds may be manufactured in a feed
manufacturing facility that has not obtained a medicated feed mill
license from FDA. By changing the regulations for free-choice medicated
feed, FDA wants to ensure that they are consistent with the requirements
for liquid medicated feed, and that provisions for free-choice medicated
feed and liquid medicated feed comply with the terms of the Animal Drug
Availability Act (ADAA) of 1996
(http://www.fda.gov/cvm/index/adaa/adaatoc.html).

This proposed rule was published in the May 28, 2003, Federal Register
(http://www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/ 98fr/03-12974.html
) Single copies of
the proposed rule may be obtained by writing to the Communications
Staff, FDA/Center for Veterinary Medicine, 7519 Standish Place, HFV-12,
Rockville, MD 20855. Please send a self-addressed adhesive label to
assist in processing your request.

Submit written comments on the proposed rule to the Dockets Management
Branch (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, Room
1061, Rockville, MD 20852. Submit electronic comments to
http://www.fda.gov/dockets/ecomments. FDA will consider all comments
received by August 26, 2003. Comments on the proposed rule must be
identified with Docket Number 93P-0174.

Additional information is available in the May 28, 2003, Federal
Register and from Dr. Dragan Momcilovic, Center for Veterinary Medicine
(HFV-226), Food and Drug Administration, 7500 Standish Place, Rockville,
MD 20855, 301-827-0169, e-mail: dmomcilo@ cvm.fda.gov
