(b) This part does not apply to drug products subject to licensing by FDA under the Public Health Service Act (58 Stat. 632 as amended (42 U.S.C. 201 et seq.)) and subchapter F of chapter I of title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(c) References in this part to regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations are to chapter I of title 21, unless otherwise noted.
