The USDA announced an interim final rule for the establishment of a domestic hemp program on Tuesday. The program was required by the 2018 Farm Bill to create consistency and regulation around domestic hemp production in the US.

The interim final rule: “includes provisions for maintaining information on the land where hemp is produced, testing the levels of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, disposing of plants not meeting necessary requirements, licensing requirements, and ensuring compliance with the requirements of the new part.” It is open for comment until December 30, 2019.
