Title: Timber Export Reporting and Substitution Determination (43 CFR part 5420) OMB Control Number: 1004–0058. Abstract: The BLM manages and sells timber located on the revested Oregon and California Railroad and the reconveyed Coos Bay Wagon Road Grant Lands under the authority of the Act of August 28, 1937 (50 Stat. 875, 43 U.S.C. 1181e). Under the Act of July 31, 1947, as amended (61 Stat. 681, 30 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), BLM also manages and sells timber located on other lands under our jurisdiction. The Department of the Interior and Related Agencies Appropriation Acts of 1975 and 1976 contained a requirement for the inclusion of provisions in timber sale contracts that will ensure that unprocessed timber sold from public lands under the jurisdiction of the BLM will not be exported or used by the purchasers as a substitute for timber they export or sell for export. The regulations at 43 CFR part 5400, Sales of Forest Products, General, cover these provisions. Timber purchasers or their afiliates must submit the information listed at 43 CFR 5424.1(a) using Form 5460–17, Substitution Determination. We collect the purchaser’s name, timber contract number, processing facility lcoation, total volume of Federal timber purchased on an annual basis, total volume of private timber exported on an annual basis, and method of measuring the volume. The regulation at 43 CFR 5424.1(b) requires that the purchasers or affiliates retain a record of Federal timber acquisitions and private timber exports for three years from the date the activity occurred. BLM uses this PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2305 information to determine if there was a substitution of Federal timber for exported private timber in violation of 43 CFR 5400.0–3(c). Burden Estimate Per Form: We estimate it takes 1 hour to complete Form 5460–17 and is submitted on occasion to the BLM by the private sector. Annual Responses: 1. Application Fee Per Response: 0.
