HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI65 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Revocation of Methods of Analysis Regulation 

The final rule revokes 2.19 (21 CFR 2.19), which states that it is FDA policy to use the methods of analysis of the AOAC International as published in the 1980 edition of Official Methods of Analysis of the Association of Analytical Chemists for FDA enforcement programs when the method of analysis is not prescribed in a regulation. Repeal of this regulation would eliminate an unnecessary policy.
