SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Animal and Plant Health Inspection 
Service (APHIS) has established an electronic stakeholder registry for 
individuals and organizations interested in receiving updates regarding 
APHIS announcements, activities, policies, regulations and services. 
Subscribers can choose from an array of topics covering all of APHIS' 
program areas and once registered will receive information via email or 
text tailored to their specific interests. In addition to choosing 
topics of interest, subscribers may select how often they want to 
receive messages.
    APHIS' Plant Protection and Quarantine and Veterinary Services 
programs are already using this subscription service to share 
information with stakeholders. By expanding the registry to include 
APHIS' Animal Care, Biotechnology Regulatory Services, International 
Services, and Wildlife Services programs, we are adopting an agency-
wide approach toward increasing transparency and communication with our 
many and diverse stakeholders.
    To join the registry and receive messages, stakeholders must 
subscribe and provide an email address or telephone number. 
Stakeholders can update their profiles at any time using this same 
    Persons interested in becoming subscribers or updating their 
subscriptions may access the expanded registry at: https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/USDAAPHIS/subscriber/topics?qsp=USDAAPHIS_1. Subscribers can also register or update their 
profiles by clicking on the red envelope on the APHIS home page at 
www.aphis.usda.gov. Questions concerning the APHIS stakeholder registry 
may be directed to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION
