USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE65 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: Amendments to APHIS Indemnity Regulations  

We are soliciting public comment on a possible new approach to indemnity value determination and a new framework for the indemnity regulations currently found at title 9, Code of Federal Regulations (9 CFR) parts 50-56. These parts address payment of indemnity to remove animals the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) classifies as affected, suspect, or exposed to diseases of concern, to eradicate and control foreign animal diseases, emerging diseases, and program diseases. These sections specify values for animals removed for these diseases or the process to determine values if a flat rate was not established, methods of identification, confirmation of destruction, and other aspects of removal. The regulations can cover multiple species in each section based on the disease covered.
