CVM Update <FDA Announces Confirmation of the Effective Date of the BSE Final Rule

The Food and Drug Administration today announced that the final rule
entitled ''Substances Prohibited From Use in Animal Food or Feed,'' will
become effective on April 27, 2009. However, to allow renderers additional
time to comply with the new requirements, the Agency has established a
compliance date of October 26, 2009. The additional 6 months will provide
time for those affected to identify appropriate methods for disposing of
material prohibited from use in animal feed by this rule. FDA is
encouraging affected parties who are able to begin complying with the rule
to do so as soon as possible.

In the April 9, 2009, Federal Register FDA proposed to delay the effective
date of the final rule for 60 days and provided a period of 7 days for
public comment. The agency received over 400 comments from state and
national cattle producer organizations, individual cattle producers,
renderers, meat processors, dairy organizations, State agriculture agencies,
and consumers.

Many of the comments indicated that certain entities were not adequately
prepared to comply with the final rule and that adequate alternative carcass
disposal methods had not been developed. However, a significant number of
comments received opposed delaying the effective date of the final rule due
to public and animal health concerns.

In consideration of all comments received, FDA believes the most appropriate
action is to confirm the April 27, 2009, effective date, and establish a
compliance date of October 26, 2009, for those who need additional time to
address compliance and implementation concerns.

FDA will conduct outreach to affected stakeholders to help them comply with
the rule. The Agency will hold a 50-state call to discuss the disposal
issues in various states or regions and will engage others affected by the
rule to assist as much as possible with meeting challenging carcass disposal
issues by the October 26, 2009 compliance date. FDA also plans on
finalizing the Small Entities Compliance Guide #195 for Renderers to provide
additional information specific to the concerns of the rendering industry.
