On March 8, 2012, a proposed rule was published in the Federal Register establishing new reporting requirements for pork (fresh, chilled, and frozen box/primal cuts) and distillers dried grain (DDG) to the Export Sales Reporting Requirements (77 FR 13990). Subsequent to publication, FAS ascertained that OMB clearance was not yet received, so the proposed rule needs to be withdrawn until such clearance is conveyed.
