In a final rule that was published in the Federal Register on February 25, 2020, and effective on March 26, 2020, we amended the regulations governing the National Veterinary Accreditation Program by, among other things, replacing all instances of the term “Veterinarian-in-Charge” with the term “Veterinary Official.” However, we inadvertently left two instances of the term “Veterinarian-in-Charge” in the regulations. This document corrects that oversight in the final rule.
Effective July 13, 2020.

On February 25, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 10562-10565, Docket No. APHIS-2017-0065) a final rule that amended the National Veterinary Accreditation Program regulations in 9 CFR parts 160, 161, and 162. Among other changes to these regulations, we replaced the term “Veterinarian-in-Charge” with the term “Veterinary Official” throughout. However, in § 161.1(e)(4), we inadvertently left two instances of “Veterinarian-in-Charge” unchanged. This document corrects that error.
