The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Wednesday announced it is extending the comment period for the advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) that appeared in the Federal Register of July 27, 2012. The July Federal Register notice is available here.

In the ANPR, FDA requested comments regarding potential changes to its regulations relating to records and reports for approved antimicrobial new animal drugs. The agency is taking this action in response to requests for an extension to allow interested persons additional time to submit comments.  Comments are now due by November 26, 2012.  NCC’s Poultry Health and Growout Committee will be developing comments in response to this ANPR.
