USDA seeks comments for revising MAP regulations

25
May '07
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) announced that it is seeking public comments on whether to amend and revise regulations for the Market Access Program (MAP).

The Market Access Program, administered by USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service, helps U.S. trade organizations and small businesses create, expand and maintain foreign markets for U.S. agricultural commodities and products.

The program forms partnerships between non-profit U.S. agricultural trade associations, cooperatives, state regional trade groups and the Commodity Credit Corporation to share the costs of international marketing and promotional activities.

The amended and revised regulations would aim to improve the program's effectiveness. Comments are being solicited regarding application requirements, participant eligibility, the review, allocation and compliance processes, reimbursement rules, contracting and risk management procedures, and any other aspect of the program which a commenter believes should be addressed in any future amendment of the regulation. Written comments must be received on or before Monday, Aug. 13, 2007.
