Major rule (as determined by Office of Risk Assessment and Cost-Benefit Analysis) Any regulation that the Secretary of Agriculture estimates is likely to have an annual impact on the economy of the United States of at least $100 million in 1994 dollars. Major rules whose primary purpose is to regulate issues of human health, human safety, or the environment require special risk and cost-benefit analyses and must be reviewed by USDA's Office of Risk Assessment and Cost-Benefit Analysis.
