Title: Agricultural Bioterrorism Protection Act of 2002; Biennial Review and Republication of the Select Agent and Toxin List 
Abstract:

In accordance with the Agricultural Bioterrorism Protection Act of 2002, we are proposing to amend and republish the select agent and toxin lists that have the potential to pose a severe threat to animal or plant health, or to animal or plant products. The Act requires the biennial review and republication of the list of select agents and toxins and the revision of the list as necessary. This action would implement findings of biennial review of the lists. In addition, we are proposing to codify operational procedures and policies necessary to enforce the regulations. These proposed changes would economically benefit producers, research and reference laboratories, and State and Federal oversight agencies, while also maintaining adequate program oversight of select agents and toxins.
