USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE43 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Establishment of Regulations for the Evaluation and Recognition of the Animal Health Status of Compartments 

This rulemaking will establish standards that will allow APHIS to recognize compartments for animal disease status consistent with World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) international standards. APHIS’ compartment recognition process will be similar to its recognition process for regions, contained in 9 CFR part 92, which includes information requirements for evaluating the animal health status of a region for which a market access request has been submitted. Under this rule, APHIS will perform a risk assessment to evaluate the animal health status of a compartment. If after conducting the evaluation, APHIS deems the risk of importing animals or animal products from the compartment to be acceptable, APHIS will publish a Federal Register notice with risk documentation for public review and comment.
