The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a proposal today to amend its 2012 proposed rule for New Animal Drugs; Updating Tolerances for Residues of New Animal Drugs in Food.
The 2012 proposed rule included revisions to the animal drug regulations regarding tolerances for residues of approved and conditionally-approved new animal drugs in food. In addition to proposing to standardize, simplify, and clarify the standards of determination and codification style for tolerances, FDA proposed a new definition section. In direct response to comments received, the document issued today revises or removes some of the previously proposed definitions.
