Remove the definition of ‘‘Acceptable single-dose intake’’; ■ b. Add, in alphabetical order, a definition for ‘‘Acute reference dose’’; ■ c.

The revisions and additions read as follows: withdrawal period, and any other use restrictions necessary to ensure that the proposed use of the drug will be safe. § 556.3 22 CFR Part 96 ■ Definitions. * * * * * Acute reference dose (ARfD) means an estimate of the amount of residues expressed on a body weight basis that can be ingested in a period of 24 hours or less without adverse effects or harm to the health of the human consumer. * * * * * Marker residue means the residue whose concentration is in a known relationship to the concentration of total residue in an edible tissue. * * * * * Not required, in reference to tolerances in this part, means that at the time of approval: (1) No withdrawal period was necessary for residues of the drug to deplete to or below the concentrations considered to be safe, or an adequate withdrawal period was inherent in the proposed drug use, and there was a rapid depletion of residues, so there was no concern about residues resulting from misuse or overdosing; or (2) No withdrawal period was necessary because the drug was poorly absorbed or metabolized rapidly so as to make selection of an analyte impractical or impossible. * * * * * Tolerance means the maximum concentration of a marker residue, or other residue indicated for monitoring, that can legally remain in a specific edible tissue of a treated animal. * * * * * Zero, in reference to tolerances in this part, means any residues detected in the tissue renders it unsafe. ■ 5. Amend § 556.5, as proposed to be added on December 5, 2012 (77 FR 72254), by revising paragraph (d) to read as follows: § 556.5 General considerations. * * * * * (d) FDA requires that a drug sponsor submit a practicable method as part of their new animal drug application. FDA uses the practicable method to determine the quantity of the drug residues that can safely remain in edible tissues (i.e., the tolerance), the PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 Dated: October 21, 2016.

Building to the proposed standards will, consistent with the Executive orders, increase resiliency to flooding, reduce the risk of flood loss, minimize the impact of floods on human safety, health, and welfare, and promote sound, sustainable, long-term planning informed by a more accurate evaluation of flood risk that takes into account possible sea level rise and increased development associated with population growth. This document also proposes to revise a categorical exclusion available when HUD performs the environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and related Federal laws by making it consistent with changes to a similar categorical exclusion that is available to HUD grantees or other responsible entities when they perform these environmental reviews. This change will make the review standard identical regardless of whether HUD or a grantee is performing the review. Comment Due Date: December 27, 2016.
