Rules Amended: 603-025-0190

Subject: The proposed amendment updates the Code of Federal Regulations reference from the 2005 version to the 2010 version. This will ensure that Oregon maintains regulations that are current and consistent with neighboring states. The parts of the CFR that were previously adopted are substantially similar in the 2010 version. The amendment will adopt 21 CFR parts 7 (Enforcement Policy), 111 (Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements, and 118 (Production, Storage, and Transportation of Shell Eggs) for the first time in Oregon.

   21 CFR 7 governs the practices and procedures of enforcement actions initiated by the government and provides guidance for manufacturers and distributors to follow with respect to their voluntary removal or correction of marketed violative products (recall of products). 21 CFR 111 regulates the manufacture, packaging, labeling, and storage of dietary supplements. The regulations in 21 CFR 111 do not apply to a person that is holding dietary supplements at a retail establishment for the sole purpose of direct sale to individual customers. 21 CFR 118 regulates the production, storage and transportation of shell eggs, and applies to: (1) shell egg producers with 3,000 or more laying hens at a particular farm that do not sell all of their eggs directly to consumers and produces shell eggs for the table market, and (2) person that transport or hold shell eggs for shell egg processing or egg products facilities from farms with 3,000 or more laying hens.
