SUBJECT: BSE: Minimal-Risk Regions and Importation of Commodities

TO: Importers, Brokers and Other Interested Parties

On January 4, 2005, USDA published a final rule which amends the
regulations to
provide for the importation of certain ruminants, ruminant products and
byproducts from
regions that pose a minimal risk of introducing bovine spongiform
encephalopathy (BSE)
into the United States, and designates Canada as the first minimal-risk
region (70 FR
460-553, Docket No. 03-080-3). These actions will continue to protect
against the
introduction of BSE into the United States while removing unnecessary
prohibitions on
the importation of certain commodities from minimal-risk regions for
BSE. The rule
finalizes, with changes, the proposed rule that USDA published in the
Federal Register
on November 4, 2003 (68 FR 62386-62405, Docket No. 03-080-1).

The effective date of the final rule is March 7,2005. Until the
effective date, only those
commodities that were listed in the August 15, 2003 notice (republished
May 6, 2004)
will be eligible for importation from Canada, under the risk-mitigation
measures
specified in that notice.
