Final Rule: WIC Food Delivery Systems - Delay of Implementation Date

Final Rule

This final rule delays from Feb. 27, 2002 until Oct. 1, 2002 the implementation date of the final rule entitled Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC): Food Delivery Systems, which was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 29, 2000, 65 FR 83248, and became effective on April 28, 2001.

The rule strengthens vendor management in retail food delivery systems by establishing mandatory selection criteria, training requirements, criteria to be used to identify high-risk vendors, and monitoring requirements, including compliance investigations. The new implementation date of Oct. 1, 2002 provides State agencies additional time to implement the rule, promotes more effective and efficient implementation of the new requirements, and corresponds with the beginning of the federal fiscal year.
