DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

9 CFR Ch. III

[Docket No. 04-040N]


Regulatory Flexibility Act; Amended Plan for Reviewing
Regulations Under Section 610 Requirements

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), USDA.

ACTION: Schedule of regulations to be reviewed under section 610
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act; amended.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is publishing an
amended scheduling plan for reviewing regulations under Section 610 of
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended. These provisions require
that all Federal agencies review existing regulations that have a
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities
to determine whether the associated impact can be minimized.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information contact Dr.
Quita Bowman Blackwell, Director, Directives and Economic Analysis
Staff, FSIS, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 300 12th Street, SW, Room
112, Washington, DC 20250-3700, (202) 720-5627.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended (5
U.S.C. 601-612), requires that all Federal agencies review any
regulations that have been identified as having a significant economic
impact upon a substantial number of small entities as a means to
determine whether the associated impact can be minimized by considering
the following factors: (1) The continued need for the rule; (2) the
nature of the complaints or comments received concerning the rule from
the public; (3) the complexity of the rule; (4) the extent to which the
rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules; and
(5) the length of time since the rule has been initially evaluated or
the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors
have changed in the area affected by the rule.
On April 2, 2002, FSIS published in the Federal Register (67 FR
15501) a scheduling plan for reviewing regulations under the 610
provisions. At that point, the Agency had determined to review all
rules deemed economically significant, regardless of whether the Agency
had stated that the rule would impose a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities or not. After further
consideration, FSIS now believes that it would be more effective and
beneficial if the Agency concentrated its reviews under Section 610 of
the RFA on those final and interim final rules that the Agency has
identified as having a significant economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities.
Accordingly, FSIS has amended its plan for reviewing the Agency
rules that it has identified as having a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
