Title: Import Tolerances for Residues of Unapproved New Animal Drugs in Food 

This rule would institute procedures by which a person may request FDA establish or amend tolerances for unapproved new animal drugs where edible portions of animals imported into the United States may contain residues of such drugs (import tolerances), or to revoke an existing import tolerance. Such import tolerances provide a basis for legally marketing food of animal origin that is imported into the United States and contains residues of unapproved new animal drugs.
