USDA’s APHIS considering privatizing inspections

Leave a comment

Note:  Things were done this way up until about the 1940’s, and it was a disaster.  That’s why they passed federal inspections.  Now, the USDA is thinking about trying this again.

And if USDA APHIS privatizes inspections, what will the USDA inspectors do?  Sit at the office and play checkers?  The USDA should just be hiring more USDA APHIS inspectors.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is holding four in-person listening sessions to solicit public comment to aid in the development of criteria for recognizing the use of third-party inspection and certification programs as a positive factor when determining APHIS inspection frequencies at facilities licensed or registered under the Animal Welfare Act.  If you are interested in attending one of the listening sessions, please click on the link below to register for a specific location. Please indicate in the comments box if you would like to speak at the listening session.  A virtual listening session will be held by telephone on March 14 for those unable to attend the in-person session.  Details will be sent at a later date for those that registered for that session. See recent publication of the public meeting notice in the Federal Register.
