Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 211 / Monday, November 2, 2015 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES fsis/topics/international-affairs/ exporting-products/export-libraryrequirements-by-country. AMS Testing Program AMS and FSIS have developed a collaborative testing program to verify pathogen control for closed-face sandwiches produced under FSIS voluntary inspection and intended for export to Canada. This program, which AMS will administer, may eventually include other RTE products. The program will include two types of testing, routine and intensified, to ensure that participating establishments are controlling Lm and Salmonella. For routine testing, AMS will randomly select dates once per year when product samples will be collected. FSIS will collect the product samples and pack them for shipment to the USDA National Science Laboratories in Gastonia, North Carolina. FSIS will collect six samples regardless of plant size, production volume, or process design. If an establishment produces both post-lethality-exposed and nonpost-lethality-exposed products, six product samples will be taken from the former and two from the latter. AMS will analyze the samples for Lm and Salmonella and will require that establishments hold or maintain control of the product until acceptable results become available. If the product is positive, the establishment will have to properly dispose of the affected product in accordance with FDA regulations. At least once per year, AMS also will select dates for intensified testing at a participating establishment. AMS will also conduct this testing if it finds a positive Lm or Salmonella result or in response to continuing sanitation noncompliances at the establishment. The samples will vary in number depending on whether product is being tested for Lm or Salmonella but will always include environmental, product, and food-contact-surface samples. AMS will collect the samples. For both types of testing, the establishment will pay all costs for sample collection, shipping, shipping materials, and analysis. See http:// www.ams.usda.gov/services/importexports/rte-canada for a full description of the program, including sample collection and laboratory testing methods. HACCP Verification In order for the establishments to meet Canada’s requirements for import of closed-face sandwiches, FSIS will offer voluntary inspection services and will verify that the establishments are producing these products under HACCP VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:55 Oct 30, 2015 Jkt 238001 and Sanitation SOPs. Therefore, to ship this product to Canada, establishments will need to comply with the requirements in 9 CFR part 417 and 9 CFR 416.11–.17. By participating in the EV program and receiving voluntary inspection from FSIS (including verification of HACCP plans and Sanitation SOPs), establishments that produce closed-face sandwiches and that meet all FSIS and AMS EV program requirements will be able to meet Canada’s stated import requirements for closed-faced sandwiches. To receive these services, establishments should contact FSIS at (202) 720–0082, or by email at importexport@fsis.usda.gov. Comments are invited on: (a) The timetable for implementation of this program, including readiness to participate in the program’s pathogen testing and HACCP verification, and business and trade interests affected by compliance or non-compliance with the program; (b) how the proposed programs can be implemented operationally to avoid disruption of trade or business activities; and (c) any other operational issues that commenters need clarified. FSIS will clarify any issues or make adjustments to the implementation date of the program in a Constituent Update.
