USDA/APHIS RIN: 0579-AE74 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Miscellaneous Amendments to the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) Regulations and Related Provisions  

This document proposes amendments to the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) regulations at title 9, Code of Federal Regulations (9 CFR) parts 145, 146, and 147. The NPIP is a long-standing, voluntary industry-State-Federal cooperative program governed by a Federal Advisory Committee. Part 145 contains the regulations for breeding poultry NPIP participation and part 146 contains the regulations for commercial poultry NPIP participation. These parts address classification programs for certain diseases which allow APHIS to provide certification for poultry and poultry products being shipped interstate as well as internationally. Part 147, the auxiliary provisions, contains the procedures to make changes to the NPIP program. We are also proposing changes to the indemnity regulations governing low pathogenicity avian influenza (LPAI) in 9 CFR part 56.

On a biennial basis, the Committee votes on recommended changes to the NPIP regulations and related provisions (in this case, LPAI indemnity). We propose to amend the regulations based on the recommendations approved by voting delegates at the NPIP 2022 Biennial Conference.
