SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) operates a voluntary fee-forservice seafood inspection program (Program) under the authorities of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946, as amended, the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956, and the Reorganization Plan No. 4 of 1970. The regulations for the Program are contained in 50 CFR Part 260. The Program offers inspection grading and certification services, including the use of official quality grade marks which indicate that specific products have been Federally inspected. Qualified participants are permitted to use the Program’s official quality grade marks on their products to facilitate trade of fishery products. The participants in the inspection program are requested to submit specific information pertaining to the type of inspection services requested [Sec. 260.15]. In all cases, applicants provide information regarding the type of products to be inspected, the quantity, and location of the product. There are also application requirements if there is an appeal of previous inspection results [Sec. 260.36]. Participants requesting regular inspection services on a contractual basis also submit a contract [Sec. 260.96]. The participants interested in using official grade marks are required to submit product labels and specifications for review and approval to ensure compliance with mandatory labeling regulations established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as well as proper use of the Program’s marks [Sec. 260.97 (12) and (13)]. PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Current regulations state requirements for approval of drawings and specifications prior to approval of facilities [Sec. 260.96 (b) and (c)]. There are no respondents under this section. The Program will amend this part of the regulations in a future action. In July 1992, NMFS announced new inspection services, which were fully based on guidelines recommended by the National Academy of Sciences, known as Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP). The information collection requirements fall under Sec. 260.15 of the regulations. These guidelines required that a facility’s quality control system have a written plan of the operation, identification of control points with acceptance criteria and a corrective action plan, as well as identified personnel responsible for oversight of the system. The HACCP requires continuing monitoring and recordkeeping by the facility’s personnel. Although HACCP involves substantial self-monitoring by the industry, the HACCP-based program is not a selfcertification program. It relies on unannounced system audits by NMFS. The frequency of audits is determined by the ability of the firm to monitor its operation. By means of these audits, NMFS reviews the records produced through the Program participant’s selfmonitoring. The audits determine whether the participant’s HACCP-based system is in compliance by checking for overall sanitation, accordance with good manufacturing practices, labeling, and other requirements. In addition, inprocess reviews, end-product sampling, and laboratory analyses are performed by NMFS at frequencies based on the potential consumer risk associated with the product and/or the firm’s history of compliance with the Program’s criteria. The information collected is used to determine a participant’s compliance with the program. The reported information, a HACCP plan, is needed only once. Other information is collected and kept by the participant as part of its routine monitoring activities. NMFS audits the participant’s records on unannounced frequencies to further determine compliance. II. Method of Collection Information will be obtained via telephone, fax, hard-copy submission, or audit conducted by NMFS personnel. III. Data OMB Number: 0648–0266.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Coastal Impact Assistance Program (CIAP) recognizes that 
impacts from Outer Continental Shelf oil and gas activities fall 
disproportionately on coastal states and localities nearest to where 
the activities occur. The program provides funds to seven states and 
147 local governments to conduct a variety of related projects, 
including construction and land acquisition. NOAA must review the 
projects in accordance with the CIAP legislation before disbursing 
funds. To expedite review, NOAA developed the CIAP Project Checklist 
for the construction and land acquisition projects. The Checklist, 
whose use is voluntary, requests applicants to provide project 
information to allow NOAA to determine their eligibility under the CIAP 
as well as eligibility under other relevant statutes (NEPA, etc.).
