FSIS Review of State Application

There are a number of key steps that a State needs to take in order to be eligible to participate in CIS beyond operating their own MPI. For instance, States must demonstrate that they have authority under their own laws to provide the same inspection services as FSIS provides in official Federal establishments.

The necessary legal authority may come in the form of documentation that demonstrates the State incorporated the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA), the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) and the implementing regulations by reference. An example of such documentation is a copy of the law that authorized the incorporation.

Alternatively, a State that has not incorporated all provisions of the FMIA, PPIA and implementing regulations by reference could submit a copy of a State law that gives State personnel the authority to enforce Federal food safety standards for purposes of a CIS Program. Another route would be to submit a legal opinion from the State Attorney General that confirms that State personnel have such authority.
