Lesson 6 — Coding Animal Use Products

Glossary

The following terms are used when coding products under Industry Codes 67 and 69.

Drug Categories (these are the Class Categories for Ind. Code 67 and 69)

Category I: drugs require no withdrawal period at the lowest use level in each species for which they are approved.

Category II: drugs require a withdrawal period at the lowest use level for at least one species for which they are approved or are regulated on a "no-residue" basis or with a "zero" tolerance because of a carcinogenic concern regardless of whether a withdrawal period is required.

Combo Category I & II: Products containing both category I & II animal drugs.

Types of Medicated Products

Type A medicated article: (previously called Premix) is intended solely for use in the manufacture of another Type A medicated article or a Type B or Type C medicated feed. It consists of a new animal drug (s) with or without a carrier (e.g., calcium carbonate, rice hull, corn, gluten) with or without inactive ingredients.

Type B medicated feed: (previously called Concentrate) is intended solely for the manufacture of other medicated feeds (Type B or Type C). It contains a substantial quantity of nutrients including vitamins and/or minerals and/or other nutritional ingredients in an amount not less than 25 percent of the weight. It is manufactured by diluting a Type A medicated article or another Type medicated feed.

Type C medicated feed: is intended as the complete feed for the animal or may be fed "top dressed" (added on top of usual ration) on or offered "free-choice" (e.g., supplement) in conjunction with other animal feed. It contains a substantial quantity of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and/or other nutritional ingredients. It is manufactured by diluting a Type A medicated article or a Type B medicated feed. A Type C medicated feed may be further diluted to produce another Type C medicated feed.

Retorted: Process of distilling, sublimating or decomposing by heat. This term is used with the Process Indicator Codes for Industry Codes 71, By Products for Animals and 72, Pet and Laboratory Animal Foods.

Animal Use Products — Industry Codes 54, 56, 67-72

Animal Use Products cover several industries. Animal uses of Vitamins — Industry Code 54 and Antibiotics — Industry Code 56 are included in the Lessons on those products. Click on the hyperlinks to go to Vitamins or Antibiotics.

The remaining Animal Use Products are under Industry Codes 67-72. These include:

67 — Type A Medicated Articles

68 — Animal Devices and Diagnostic Products

69 — Medicated Animal Feeds

70 — Animal Food (Non-Medicated Feed and Feed Ingreds)

71 — Byproducts for Animal Foods

72 — Pet and Laboratory Animal Foods

Class Codes, Subclasses and PICs depend on the Industry Code selected.
