USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AD09 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: ●Agricultural Bioterrorism Protection Act of 2002; Biennial Review and Republication of the Select Agent and Toxin List; Reorganization of the Select Agent and Toxin List 
Abstract: In accordance with the Agricultural Bioterrorism Protection Act of 2002, we are soliciting public comment regarding the list of select agents and toxins that have the potential to pose a severe threat to animal or plant health, or to animal or plant products. The Act requires the biennial review and republication of the list of select agents and toxins and the revision of the list as necessary. Accordingly, we are soliciting public comment on the current list of select agents and toxins in our regulations and suggestions regarding any additional animal or plant pathogens not currently listed that might be considered for inclusion on the lists of select agents and toxins. In addition, we are soliciting public comment on the potential reorganization of the list of select agents and toxins based on the relative potential of each select agent or toxin to be used as a biological weapon. Such tiering of the list would allow for the application of different physical security measures for those select agents or toxins which pose a higher risk to animal or plant health if stolen or otherwise misused.
