Title: Amendments to the Pale Cyst Nematode Regulations 

This rulemaking will revise the procedures for regulating and deregulating domestic quarantined areas for pale cyst nematode (PCN) by making the protocol for regulating and deregulating fields available for public review and comment. The regulations would specify that fields will be designated as PCN-infested or associated with PCN-infested fields and removed from quarantine in accordance with the protocol document, indicate where on the internet the protocol document may be found, and specify that APHIS will publish notices in the Federal Register, with an opportunity for public comment, whenever APHIS proposes to change the protocol document.
