Proposed for Amendment: 10A NCAC 46 .0201 - Local Standards; Proposed for Repeal: 10A NCAC .0212 – Grade A Milk Sanitation

The Commission for Public Health intends to amend the rules cited as 10A NCAC 46 .0201 and to repeal the rule cited as 10A NCAC 46 .0212 with a proposed effective date of July 1, 2015.

Per SESSION LAW 2011-145, the Commission for Public Health no longer has statutory authority to regulate milk sanitation. The rule making authority has been transferred to the Board of Agriculture and the Department of Agriculture is responsible for the milk sanitation program. Therefore, the Commission for Public Health can no longer require local health departments to provide milk sanitation as a mandated public health service.

A public hearing was held on March 6, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. in the Cardinal Room, located at: 5605 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609 External link.
