Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.
In a final rule that was published in the Federal Register on March 25, 2019, and effective on April 24, 2019, we amended the regulations by changing the requirements for records needed to trace animals and by adding provisions to link official individual animal identification applied by persons other than the flock owner to the flock of origin in the National Scrapie Database rather than just the person who applied the official identification. This document corrects an error in that final rule.
Effective June 18, 2019.

On March 25, 2019, we published in the Federal Register (84 FR 11170-11196, Docket No. APHIS-2007-0127) a final rule that amended the regulations in parts 54 and 79 by changing the requirements for records needed to trace animals, and by adding provisions to link official individual animal identification applied by persons other than the flock owner to the flock of origin in the National Scrapie Database rather than just the person who applied the official identification. As part of this change, we added some paragraphs to § 79.6(a) and redesignated others. Specifically, § 79.6(a)(10)(i) was redesignated as § 79.6(a)(12). However, in § 79.2(a)(1), footnote 4 refers to the identification requirements in § 79.6(a)(10)(i), and we did not update the reference in the footnote to reflect that change. This document corrects that error.
