LSA #18-123: Meat & Poultry Products Inspection

Rulemaking Docket


Date (“E”) for estimated future date


LSA document number LSA Document #18-123
Description of rule

Amends Board of Animal Health (BOAH) rules governing meat and poultry products inspection

to conform with the United States Department of Agriculture - Food Safety Inspection Service (USDA-FSIS)

regulatory requirements under the federal Meat Inspection Act and Poultry Products Inspection Act (9 CFR Parts

300 - 500). State law requires the BOAH to enforce requirements with respect to intrastate operations that are at

least equal to those imposed and enforced under the federal Meat Inspection Act (21 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) and the

federal Poultry Products Inspection Act (21 U.S.C. 451 et seq.) (IC 15-17-5-1(4)). In order to comply with this

statutory mandate, BOAH must periodically update the meat and poultry rules to ensure they are at least equal to

9 CFR Subchapter E, which contains the requirements for federally-inspected facilities. This is accomplished by

updating the incorporation by reference of certain federal regulations every two years. BOAH is proposing to

update the incorporation by reference at 345 IAC 9-2.1-1 and 345 IAC 10-2.1-1 from January 1, 2016, to January

1, 2018. The rule also clarifies references to certain federal regulations and updates the incorporation by

reference of the federal regulations for the voluntary inspection of rabbits.
