SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: nlaroche on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES I. Background In the Federal Register of November 27, 2015 (80 FR 74353), we issued a final rule entitled ‘‘Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption’’ (the final rule) that establishes science-based minimum standards for the safe growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce, meaning fruits and vegetables grown for human consumption. The final rule, which is codified at 21 CFR part 112, became effective January 26, 2016, but has staggered compliance dates starting January 26, 2017. We examined the economic implications of the final rule as required by the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612) and determined that the final rule will have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. In compliance with section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (Pub. L. 104–121, as amended by Pub. L. 110–28), we are making available the SECG to reduce the burden of determining how to comply by further explaining and clarifying the actions that a small entity must take to comply with the rule. We are issuing the SECG consistent with our good guidance practices VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:36 Sep 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 regulation (21 CFR 10.115(c)(2)). The SECG represents the current thinking of FDA on this topic. It does not establish any rights for any person and is not binding on FDA or the public. You can use an alternative approach if it satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. This is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 12866 and does not impose any additional burden on regulated entities. II. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This guidance refers to previously approved collections of information found in FDA regulations. These collections of information are subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). The collections of information in part 112 have been approved under OMB control number 0910–0816. III. Electronic Access Persons with access to the Internet may obtain the SECG at either https:// www.fda.gov/FoodGuidances, or https:// www.regulations.gov.

Abram, Deputy Commissioner for Policy, Planning, Legislation, and Analysis.
