On September 9, the US Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) website released the final rules of "Egg Products Inspection Regulations" (Regulation No. FSIS-2005-0015). Some of the amendments include:

1. To require official plants that process egg products (herein also referred to as “egg products plants” or “plants”) to develop and implement Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Systems and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (Sanitation SOPs) and to meet other sanitation requirements consistent with FSIS’s meat and poultry regulations.

2. FSIS is eliminating the current, prescriptive regulations that are inconsistent with HACCP, Sanitation SOPs, and the proposed sanitation requirements.

3. FSIS is also specifying in the regulations that official plants that produce pasteurized egg products are required to process them to be edible without additional preparation to achieve food safety.

4. With reference to the meat and poultry inspection regulations, the inspection requirements for imported egg products have been revised, and the egg product supervision requirements of exporting countries are required to be equivalent to US regulations.

The amendment will take effect 60 days after its publication in the Federal Register.
