USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE39 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: National List of Reportable Animal Diseases 

This rulemaking amends our disease regulations to provide for a National List of Reportable Animal Diseases, along with reporting responsibilities for animal health professionals that encounter or suspect cases of communicable animal diseases and disease agents. The changes are necessary to streamline Federal cooperative animal disease detection, response, and control efforts. This action will consolidate and enhance current disease reporting mechanisms, and it will complement and supplement existing animal disease tracking and reporting at the State level. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is evaluating the comments received during the revised proposed rule in fall 2023 and the reopening of the comment period.
