TITLE 345 INDIANA STATE BOARD OF ANIMAL HEALTH

Notice of Public Hearing
LSA Document #19-430


Notice of Public Hearing

Under IC 4-22-2-24, notice is hereby given that on January 14, 2020, at 9:40 a.m., at the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH), 1202 East 38th Street, Discovery Hall Suite 100, Indianapolis, Indiana, the BOAH will hold a public hearing that amends rules governing poultry health. The proposed rule amends 345 IAC 4-4-1 to update the incorporation by reference of the federal National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) regulations from January 1, 2015, to January 1, 2019. The NPIP is a voluntary state–federal cooperative testing and certification program for poultry breeding flocks, baby chicks, poults, hatching eggs, hatcheries, and dealers. Every two years, the NPIP delegates from all the states convene at the NPIP National Biennial Conference to vote on changes to the NPIP provisions found in 9 CFR Parts 145, 146, and 147. Following the NPIP National Biennial Conference, it takes approximately two years for the changes to the NPIP provisions to be published and become effective. Therefore, this rule change will incorporate the 2016 NPIP National Biennial Conference changes that became effective on July 19, 2018.
The proposed rule does not impose costs beyond what is expressly required by state and federal law. Therefore, the proposed rule does not impose costs on a regulated entity that would require a justification statement under IC 4-22-2-24(d)(3).
Copies of these rules are now on file at the Indiana State Board of Animal Health, 1202 East 38th Street, Discovery Hall Suite 100, Indianapolis, Indiana and are open for public inspection and copying.
