The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) published a proposed rule that would amend the Beef Promotion and Research Order and increase assessment levels for imported veal and veal products. The proposed increase is based on revised determinations of live animal equivalencies—which would use average dressed veal weight in the U.S. over the past five years—for veal and veal products. The rule also would update and expand the Harmonized Tariff Schedule codes and categories for imported veal and veal products to reflect recent updates by the International Trade Commission. Public comments regarding the proposed rule may be submitted via fax to 202/720-1125, online or by mail to Michael Dinkel, Agricultural Marketing Specialist, Research and Promotion Division, Livestock, Poultry and Seed Program, AMS, USDA, Room 2610-S, STOP 0249, 1400 Independence Avenue S.W., Washington, DC 20249-0251.
