9 CFR Part 94

[Docket No. APHIS-2006-0104]


Classical Swine Fever Status of the Mexican State of Nayarit; 
Correction

AGENCY: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Proposed rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are correcting an error in our proposed rule to amend the 
regulations for importing animals and animal products by adding the 
Mexican State of Nayarit to the list of regions considered free of 
classical swine fever (CSF). We would also add Nayarit to the list of 
CSF-free regions whose exports of live swine, pork, and pork products 
to the United States must meet certain certification requirements to 
ensure their freedom from CSF. The proposed rule was published in the 
Federal Register on January 31, 2007 (72 FR 4463-4467, Docket No. APHIS 
2006-0104).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Chip Wells, Senior Staff 
Veterinarian, Regionalization Evaluation Services-Import, National 
Center for Import and Export, VS, APHIS, 4700 River Road Unit 38, 
Riverdale, MD 20737-1231; (301) 734-4356.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 31, 2007, we published in the 
Federal Register (72 FR 4463-4467, Docket No. APHIS-2006-0104) a 
proposed rule to amend the regulations for importing animals and animal 
products by adding the Mexican State of Nayarit to the list of regions 
considered free of classical swine fever (CSF). We would also add 
Nayarit to the list of CSF-free regions whose exports of live swine, 
pork, and pork products to the United States must meet certain 
certification requirements to ensure their freedom from CSF.
    In the summary of the proposed rule, and in the supplementary 
information under the heading ``Executive Order 12866 and Regulatory 
Flexibility Act,'' we stated that we would add Nayarit to the list of 
CSF-affected regions whose exports of live swine, pork, and pork 
products to the United States must meet certain certification 
requirements to ensure their freedom from CSF. This information was 
incorrect. We are proposing to recognize the State of Nayarit as free 
of this disease, so it should have read that we would add the State to 
the list of CSF-free regions to which those requirements apply. This 
document corrects these errors.

Correction

    In FR Doc. E7-1530, published on January 31, 2007 (72 FR 4463-4467) 
make the following corrections: On page 4463, under Summary, third 
sentence, and on page 4466, first column, first full sentence, correct 
``CSF-affected'' to read ``CSF-free''.

    Done in Washington, DC, this 15th day of February 2007.

Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
