Background

In a final rule that was published in the Federal Register on December 9, 2009 (74 FR 64998-65013, Docket No. APHIS-2006-0093), and effective on February 1, 2010, we amended the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) regulations, adding new provisions and reorganizing others.

As part of the reorganization, we redesignated what had been § 161.3, “Standards for performing accredited duties,” as § 161.4. However, we neglected to update two references to § 161.3 elsewhere in the NVAP regulations, specifically in § 162.11 and paragraph (a) of § 162.12. In addition, paragraph (a) of 9 CFR 91.3, which discusses general export requirements for livestock, refers to certification of test results in accordance with paragraph (k) of § 161.3. This document corrects those citations to refer instead to § 161.4.
