Notice of Intent to Adopt a Rule
LSA Document #18-197

Under IC 4-22-2-23, the Indiana State Board of Animal Health intends to adopt a rule concerning the following:

OVERVIEW: Repeals the Board of Animal Health (BOAH) rule governing swine enteric coronavirus diseases (SECD) to conform with the March 6, 2018, notice issued by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) stating that, effective immediately, the SECD Federal Order was being rescinded. This effect of this action by the USDA is that producers, veterinarians, and laboratories are no longer required to report positive cases to federal animal health officials. To align BOAH rules with this recent federal action, the proposed rule amends 345 IAC 1-6-3 to remove the requirement for a diagnostic laboratory or veterinarian to report a diagnosis of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) or porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) in an animal or article from Indiana or whose owner is from Indiana to the state veterinarian within two business days of the diagnosis. The proposed rule repeals 345 IAC 3-6 requiring a herd owner, veterinarian, caretaker, custodian, or laboratory personnel that receives information of a presumptive positive case, confirmed positive case, or negative case of PEDv, PDCoV, or other emerging swine enteric coronavirus disease, in a herd located in Indiana to report that information to the state veterinarian within two business days of receiving the information. Questions and comments concerning the proposed rule may be sent to the Small Business Regulatory Coordinator for this rule. Statutory authority: IC 15-17-3; IC 15-17-10.

For purposes of IC 4-22-2-28.1, the Small Business Regulatory Coordinator for this rule is:
Sarah Simpson
Director of Legal Affairs, Licensing, and Enforcement
Indiana State Board of Animal Health
Discovery Hall, Suite 100
1202 East 38th Street
