Service Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Extension of currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses that produce and/or market approved nontoxic shot types or nontoxic shot coatings. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Total Annual Number of Responses: 1. Completion Time per Response: 3,200 hours. Total Annual Burden Hours: 3,200 hours. Total Annual Nonhour Cost Burden: $25,000. Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.) prohibits the unauthorized take of migratory birds and authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to regulate take of migratory birds in the United States. Under this authority, we control the hunting of migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the United States. The regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. Additionally, for law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an application for approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the application to decide whether or not to approve a material as nontoxic. Comments: On August 15, 2008, we published in the Federal Register (73 FR 47963) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew this ICR. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on October 14, 2008. We did not receive any comments in response to that notice. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including E:\FR\FM\10FEN1.SGM 10FEN1
