Background

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through Oct. 22 on an information collection associated with the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act and corresponding regulations designed to prevent the importation, preparation, sale, or shipment of harmful veterinary biological products. A veterinary biological product is defined as all viruses, serums, toxins, and analogous products of natural or synthetic origin, such as vaccines, antitoxins, or the immunizing components of microorganisms intended for the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of diseases in domestic animals.

To effectively implement the licensing, production, labeling, importation, and other requirements, APHIS employs a number of information gathering tools, including establishment license applications, product license applications, product permit applications, product and test report forms and field study summaries, stop distribution and sale notifications, and recordkeeping.
