FSIS is proposing to modernize poultry slaughter inspection as a result of its 2011 regulatory review efforts conducted under E.O. 13563. The Agency is taking this action to improve food safety and the effectiveness of poultry slaughter inspection systems, remove unnecessary regulatory obstacles to innovation, and make better use of the Agency’s resources. FSIS is proposing a new inspection system for young chicken and turkey slaughter establishments. The new inspection system would replace the current Streamlined Inspection System(SIS), the New Line Speed Inspection System (NELS), and the New Turkey Inspection System (NTIS).
