USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE67 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
Title: ●User Fees; Establishment of Notice-Based Processes 

We are proposing to amend our regulations governing user fees assessed for the costs of providing veterinary diagnostic and import/export related services for live animals and animal products. We are proposing to remove specific user fee tables from the regulations, and establish a notice-based process to update our user fees using a standardized formula to calculate the fees that would be codified in the CFR. Under the proposed notice-based process, APHIS would annually issue a notice for public comment proposing all the fees for the upcoming year as calculated using the formula. This notice would request public comment.
