The Federal Select Agent Program (FSAP) has finalized a user manual for the electronic Federal Select Agent Program (eFSAP) information system. The manual is intended to assist entities in using eFSAP and is now available on the FSAP website here pdf icon[PDF – 917 KB].
The Federal Select Agent Program (FSAP) is pleased to announce two updates to the APHIS/CDC Form 2, Request to Transfer Select Agents and Toxins, in the electronic Federal Select Agent Program (eFSAP) information system.
- The update removes question 4 regarding the PPQ permit number. The U.S. Department of Agriculture/Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service/Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) has determined that a PPQ 526 permit (Permit to Move Live Plant Pests, Noxious Weeds, Soil, and Prohibited Plants) is no longer required for the importation or interstate/intrastate movement of the PPQ select agents listed in 7 CFR 331.3.
- The update also removes the block for the transfer extension from the APHIS/CDC Form 2, as the regulations do not support transfer extension.
