Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or individuals that import or export fish, wildlife, or wildlife products; scientific institutions that import or export fish or wildlife scientific specimens; government agencies that import or export fish or wildlife specimens for various purposes. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,600. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 170,000. Estimated Time Per Response: 15 minutes for hard copy; 10 minutes for electronic completion. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 34,000. Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) makes it unlawful to import or export fish, wildlife, or plants without filing a declaration or report deemed necessary for enforcing the Act or upholding the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(e)). With a few exceptions, businesses or individuals importing into or exporting from the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife product must complete and submit to the Service an FWS Form 3–177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife). This form as well as FWS Form 3–177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions for completion are available for electronic submission at https:// edecs.fws.gov. These forms are also available in hard copy at http:// www.fws.gov/forms/. The information that we collect is unique to each wildlife shipment and enables us to (1) Accurately inspect the contents of the shipment; (2) enforce any regulations that pertain to the fish, wildlife, or wildlife products contained PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 in the shipment; and (3) maintain records of the importation and exportation of these commodities. Additionally, since the United States is a member of CITES, we compile much of the collected information in an annual report that we provide to the CITES Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland. This annual report on the number and types of imports and exports of fish, wildlife, and wildlife products is one of our treaty obligations under CITES. We also use the information obtained from FWS Form 3–177 as an enforcement tool and management aid to monitor the international wildlife market and detect trends and changes in the commercial trade of fish, wildlife, and wildlife products. Our Division of Scientific Authority and Division of Management Authority use this information to assess the need for additional protection for native species. Businesses or individuals must file FWS Forms 3–177/3–177a with us at the time and port where they request clearance of the import or export of wildlife or wildlife products. In certain instances, they may file the forms with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The information we collect includes: (1) Name of the importer or exporter and broker. (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife. (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required). (4) Description, quantity, and value of the fish or wildlife. (5) Natural country of origin of the fish or wildlife. In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill of lading number, the location of the fish or wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical examination of the shipment is necessary. This information collection is part of a system of records covered by the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552(a)). Comments: On June 20, 2006, we published in the Federal Register (71 FR 35444) a notice that we planned to ask OMB to renew approval for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited public comments for 60 days, ending August 21, 2006. We received one comment, which did not address the information collection requirements. We did not make any changes as a result of this comment. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; E:\FR\FM\21DEN1.SGM 21DEN1
