Rules of Engagement

Sorry, this blog is not about the popular television series. I borrowed the phrase from my experiences in the US Army. For military personnel, rules of engagement define the circumstances, conditions, degree, and manner in which force may be applied. The same concept applies to FSIS personnel. There are statutes, regulations, legal principles, and directives that define the circumstances, conditions, degree, and manner in which a regulatory control action, withholding action, or suspension may be taken. This blog is about those statutes, regulations, legal principles, and directives.
