(North American Meat Institute)

USDA is soliciting public comment as part of its ongoing review to maximize the cost effectiveness and minimize the administrative burdens of its regulatory programs to determine whether changes to its existing significant regulations are necessary. The review aims to identify areas where savings can be achieved through increased use of advanced information technology to transition from paper to electronic reporting, and seeks ways to streamline and redesign existing information collections to reduce the reporting burden on the public for participating in and complying with USDA programs. Opportunities will also be identified to provide increased regulatory flexibility to individuals, business and communities in an effort to achieve desired program outcomes and save costs. Public comments are invited through May 18, 2015.
