Final Regulatory Flexibility Analyses
Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection
Ch. ATCP 88 - Egg grading, handling and labeling.
Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Analysis:
This rule repeals and recreates rules under ch. ATCP 88, Wis. Adm. Code, related to egg grade and quality standards. Many of the requirements contained in the current rule are reorganized and updated. This rule also modifies and incorporates, into ch. ATCP 88, rules related to unfair trade practices in the egg industry currently under ch. ATCP 89.
New requirements for labeling egg cartons or containers by egg producers or packers with a “keep refrigerated” statement are expected to impose minimal one-time costs associated with plate changes. Many in the industry have already incorporated this statement on their packaging on a voluntary basis. Changes in equipment to print expiration dates or “use by” dates on individual cartons or containers may also be accomplished at minimal cost. Many in the industry are also including this information on their packaging at the current time.
The rule may impose some significant costs for small businesses such as egg producers, packers, and distributors to comply with the new temperature standards for the storage and transport of eggs. A used 8 ft. by 10 ft. insulated cooler/storage room with a cooling unit may start at approximately $3,500. Mechanical refrigeration is recommended for eggs that are in transport for more than 4 hours. If implemented, used cooling units for vehicles may start at approximately $1,100 for vans and $4,000 for small (15ft.) delivery trucks. Costs will be higher for the purchase of new or larger cooler/storage rooms and trucks.
The rule increases the retention time for copies of receipts by dealers, but does not require any additional reporting or record keeping by small businesses.
No additional knowledge or professional skills are needed to meet the requirements of this rule.
Summary of Comments from Legislative Committees:
The rule was referred to the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Transportation, Utilities and Financial Institutions on August 7, 1996 and to the Assembly Committee on Agriculture on August 7, 1996. The department received no comments or request for hearing from either committee.
