FSIS requires that establishments operating under the New Swine Slaughter Inspection System (NSIS) monitor their systems through microbial testing and recordkeeping. For each sample on which a microbiological test is conducted, there are two “responses” for the establishment: one response for the actual collecting of the sample and sending it to the laboratory for analysis, and the other for recording the sample result. Under the final rule, large establishments test and record microbiological results for enteric pathogens, at both pre-evisceration and post-chill, 13 times a day; small high-volume establishments, one-time a day; and small low-volume and very small establishments, 13 times a year. FSIS estimates that large establishments would test and record microbial results for the pre-operational environment weekly; small establishments, biweekly; small low-volume and very small establishments, monthly. Furthermore, all swine slaughter establishments operating would have to maintain records that document that the products resulting from its slaughter operations meet the definition of RTC pork products. FSIS also requires that each establishment operating under the NSIS submit on an annual basis an attestation to the management member of the local FSIS circuit safety committee stating that it maintains a program to monitor and document any work-related conditions of establishment workers.

Changing Regulations
There is a reduction in the burden estimate for this information collection from 610 respondents to 84 respondents, 452,207 responses to 91,078 responses, and 57,077 hours to 4,348 hours. The reduction is due to the procedures for sampling and analysis for microbial organisms being removed because it is already covered in an approved information collection for HACCP systems (0583-0103).
