USDA/FSIS RIN: 0583-AD85 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: ●Maximum Line Speed under the New Poultry Inspection System 

The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is proposing to amend the poultry products inspection regulations to permit young chicken slaughter establishments operating under the NPIS to operate at line speeds up to 175 bpm if certain criteria are met. Young chicken NPIS establishments approved to operate at a maximum line speed of 175 bpm would need to continue to meet these criteria to continue to operate at line speeds faster than 140 bpm and up to 175 bpm. The proposed amendments would allow certain young chicken establishments to slaughter birds more efficiently while continuing to ensure food safety and effective online carcass inspection.
