USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD39 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Electronic Imported Product Inspection Application and Certification of Imported Product and Foreign Establishments; Amendments to Facilitate the Public Health Information System (PHIS) 
Abstract: FSIS is developing final regulations to amend the meat, poultry, and egg products import regulations to provide for the Agency's Public Health Information system (PHIS) Import Component. The PHIS Import Component, launched in May 2012, provides an electronic alternative to the paper-based import inspection application and imported product foreign inspection and foreign establishment certificate processes. In addition, the Agency proposed to delete the discontinued "streamlined" import inspection procedures for Canadian product (9 CFR 327.5(d) and 381.198(b)) and to require sanitation standard operating procedures (SOPs) at official import establishments.
