Title: Changes to Accreditation of Non-Federal Laboratories for Analytical Testing of Meat, Poultry, and Processed Egg Products 
Abstract:

FSIS is proposing to revise the regulations prescribing the statistical methods to be used in measuring the performance of chemistry laboratories in its voluntary Accredited Laboratory Program (ALP) and to expand the program to include pathogen testing. Additionally, the Agency is proposing to make various minor edits and changes to the regulation for the sake of clarity, to incorporate all sample types under the jurisdiction of FSIS as appropriate for the associated analyses, and to improve program flexibility.
