The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) will begin relocating four divisions of the Office of Policy and Program Development from the South Building in Washington, D.C., to Beltsville, Maryland, beginning July 10. These units include: Labeling and Program Delivery Division (LPDD); Policy Operations Division (POD); Risk and Innovation Management Division (RIMD); Policy Analysis Division (PAD); and the FSIS Docket Room.

 As these offices prepare to relocate, FSIS says to expect some delay in services.

Effective July 13, all correspondence, including comments and label applications sent via the U.S. Postal Service (including U.S. Priority Mail and U.S. Overnight Mail), or via premium couriers (e.g., Federal Express) should be sent to these new addresses:
