Need and Use of the Information: Information is used by the private sector to make economic decisions to establish market values for application in contracts or settlement value, and to address specific concerns or issues related to trade agreements and disputes as well as being used by educational institutions, specifically, agricultural colleges and universities. Government agencies such as the Foreign Agricultural Service, Economic Research Service and the National Agricultural Statistics Service use market news data in the performance of their missions. LPGMN reports provide interested segments of the market chain and the general public with unbiased comprehensive livestock, poultry, meat, eggs, wool, grain market data which helps equalize the competitive position of all market participants. The absence of these data would deny primary and secondary users information that otherwise would be available to aid them in their production and marketing decisions, analyses, research and knowledge of current market conditions. The omission of these data could adversely affect prices, supply, and demand. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; Farms. Number of Respondents: 2,939.

ACTION: Notice of determination. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We are updating the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) Program Standards. In a previous notice, we made available to the public for review and comment proposed changes to the NPIP Program Standards. These changes will be added to the NPIP Program Standards. DATES: Applicable December 10, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP), also referred to below as ‘‘the Plan,’’ is a cooperative Federal-StateIndustry mechanism for controlling certain poultry diseases. The Plan consists of a variety of programs intended to prevent and control poultry PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 diseases. Participation in all Plan programs is voluntary, but breeding flocks, hatcheries, and dealers must first qualify as ‘‘U.S. Pullorum-Typhoid Clean’’ as a condition for participating in the other Plan programs. The regulations in 9 CFR parts 56, 145, 146, and 147 (referred to below as the regulations) contain the provisions of the Plan. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) amends these provisions from time to time to incorporate new scientific information and technologies within the Plan. Because changes in diagnostic science, testing technology, and best practices for maintaining sanitation are continual, and the rulemaking process can be lengthy, certain provisions of the Plan are contained in an NPIP Program Standards document 1 rather than in the regulations. The NPIP Program Standards may be updated or revised via a notice-based process rather than by rulemaking. On April 11, 2019, we published a notice 2 in the Federal Register (84 FR 14642–14643, Docket No. APHIS–2018– 0061) advising the public that we had prepared updates to the NPIP Program Standards. We proposed updating the standards by: • Adding and amending definitions of H5/H7 low pathogenicity avian influenza (LPAI) (exposed) and H5/H7 LPAI (infected); • Clarifying and amending the testing protocol for Mycoplasma by allowing use of molecular-based examination procedures; • Removing specific agar gel immunodiffusion Avian Influenza testing procedures with directions to use the current National Veterinary Services Laboratories protocol; • Amending and clarifying salmonella isolation procedures; • Updating and clarifying bacteriological examination procedures for cull chicks and poults for salmonella; • Adding a new salmonella diagnostic test kit; • Removing outdated testing procedures for the sanitation monitored program; • Updating and clarifying hatching egg and hatchery sanitation 1 This document may be viewed on the NPIP website at https://www.poultryimprovement.org/ documents/ProgramStandardsAugust2014.pdf, or by writing to the Service at National Poultry Improvement Plan, APHIS, USDA, 1506 Klondike Road, Suite 101, Conyers, GA 30094. 2 To view the notice and comments we received, go to https://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail; D=APHIS-2018-0061.
