FDA is making technical amendments in the Agency's regulations under 21 CFR parts 5, 10, 14, 19, 20, 21, 314, 350, 516, and 814 as a result of a recent office move.

The Division of Freedom of Information Public Reading Room number is 1050.

Publication of this document constitutes final action of these changes under the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. 553). FDA has determined that notice and public comment are unnecessary because these amendments are merely correcting nonsubstantive errors.
