USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AD10 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy and Scrapie; Importation of Small Ruminants and Their Germplasm, Products, and Byproducts 
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and scrapie regulations regarding the importation of live sheep, goats, and wild ruminants and their embryos, semen, products, and byproducts. Some countries from which such imports would be allowed under this rule are currently those from which the importation of live sheep, goats, wild ruminants, their embryos, and ruminant products and byproducts are prohibited under existing BSE regulations. Some products would be allowed importation without restriction due to the inherent lack of BSE risk regarding the product. Certain other products and live animals would be allowed importation if it can be certified that the live animals or the animals from which the products were derived were born after implementation of an effective feed ban. The proposed scrapie revisions regarding the importation of sheep, goats, and susceptible wild ruminants for other than immediate slaughter are similar to those recommended by the World Organization for Animal Health in restricting the importation of such animals to those from scrapie-free regions or certified scrapie-free flocks.
