USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AB99 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Low Pathogenic Avian Influenza; Voluntary Control Program and Payment of Indemnity 
Abstract: This action amended the regulations to establish a voluntary program for the control of the H5/H7 subtypes of low pathogenic avian influenza in commercial poultry under the auspices of the National Poultry Improvement Plan (the Plan). The control program was voted on and approved by the voting delegates at the Plan's 2004 National Plan Conference. This action also provided for the payment of indemnity for costs associated with eradication of the H5/H7 subtypes of low pathogenic avian influenza in both breeding and commercial poultry. The H5/H7 subtypes of low pathogenic avian influenza can mutate into highly pathogenic avian influenza, a disease that can have serious economic and public health consequences. This combination of a control program and indemnity provisions is necessary to help ensure that the H5/H7 subtypes of low pathogenic avian influenza are detected and eradicated when they occur within U.S. commercial poultry production.
