USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE59 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Removal of the Voluntary Trichinae Certification Program Regulations  

We are proposing to eliminate the APHIS Trichinae Voluntary Certification Program and remove its associated regulations from the regulations. This action would also notify the public that APHIS will no longer maintain the Trichinae Voluntary Certification Program, nor any activity associated with the program, such as training for Qualified Accredited Veterinarian, on-farm audits, or any other administrative process associated with program maintenance and support. The program generates little producer participation, and by eliminating it, we would be able to direct APHIS resources to areas of greater need.
