31Jan2007

Proposed rules:
1) To add the Mexican State of Nayarit to the list of regions
considered free of classical swine fever (CSF)
2) To amend the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act regulations concerning testing for avian lymphoid leukosis in veterinary biologics to specify that the test is for the detection of extraneous replicating avian leukosis virus; require such testing to be conducted using a procedure that will detect extraneous replicating avian leukosis virus and that is acceptable to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service; require firms to develop a procedure to test for lymphoid leukosis virus contamination in the case of vaccine virus cytopathic to chick embryo cell cultures; and specify the equivalent inoculum dose of vaccine to be used when testing certain specified chicken vaccines for lymphoid leukosis virus. These proposed changes would update the testing for lymphoid leukosis virus contamination by prescribing a test procedure that increases the probability of detecting atypical lymphoid leukosis viruses such as those recently found in a contaminated vaccine.
3) To amend the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act regulations for certain live bacterial and viral vaccines by removing the requirement to retest the Master Seeds for immunogenicity 3 years after the initial qualifying immunogenicity test. In addition, we are proposing to amend the requirement concerning mouse safety tests prescribed for a biological product recommended for animals other than poultry. These proposed changes would update the standard requirements by eliminating unnecessary testing of Master Seed bacteria and viruses and other forms of bulk or completed biological product.

SUMMARY: This notice announces a public meeting on the subject of tuberculosis detection in imported nonhuman primates. The purpose of the meeting is to review current Institute of Laboratory Animal Research recommendations and compare newer diagnostic tests available for tuberculosis testing in nonhuman primates. DATES: The public meeting will be held February 16, 2007, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Atlanta, Georgia. Registration will begin at 11 a.m.

PROPOSED RULES Exportation and importation of animals and animal products: Cattle export; pre-export tuberculosis and brucellosis testing requirement; elimination, 1192-1195 [E7-111]

SUMMARY: We are proposing to amend the livestock exportation regulations to eliminate the requirement for pre-export tuberculosis and brucellosis testing of certain cattle being exported to countries that do not require such testing. This action would facilitate the exportation of certain cattle by eliminating the need to conduct pre- export tuberculosis and brucellosis testing when the receiving country does not require such testing. DATES: We will consider all comments that we receive on or before March 12, 2007.

5Jan07
1) We are proposing to amend the regulations to add that portion of the Patagonia region of Argentina located south of latitude 42[deg] south (Patagonia South) to the list of regions considered free of rinderpest and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD). We are taking this
 action because we have determined that Patagonia South is free of rinderpest and FMD. We are also proposing to add that region to the list of regions that are subject to certain import restrictions on meat and meat products because of their proximity to or trading relationships with rinderpest-or FMD-affected countries. These actions would update the disease status of Patagonia South with regard to rinderpest and FMD while continuing to protect the United States from an introduction of those diseases by providing additional requirements for any meat and meat products imported into the United States from Patagonia South. DATES: We will consider all comments that we receive on or before March 6, 2007.
2) We are proposing to amend the regulations for importing animal products to allow the importation of uncooked pork and pork products from regions where classical swine fever (CSF) is considered to exist if the uncooked pork and pork products originate in a region free of CSF and meet certain other conditions with respect to processing and shipping. This action would remove some restrictions on the importation of uncooked pork and pork products from regions where CSF is considered to exist while continuing to protect against an incursion of CSF into the United States. DATES: We will consider all comments that we receive on or before March 6, 2007.
NB - not sure whether this last applies to semen, etc, as well.

4Jan2007

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA. ACTION:
Affirmation of interim rule as final rule.
SUMMARY: We are adopting as a final rule, without change, an
interim rule that amended the bovine tuberculosis regulations
regarding State and zone classifications by raising the designation
of Texas from modified accredited advanced to accredited-free. The
interim rule was based on our determination that Texas met the
criteria for designation as an accredited-free State.
