SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Shelled Garden Peas from Kenya. OMB Number: 0579–0302. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. Regulations authorized by the PPA concerning the importation of fruits and vegetables into the United States from certain parts of the world are contained in ‘‘Subpart— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–48). Under these regulations, shelled garden peas from Kenya may be VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:38 Mar 13, 2009 Jkt 217001 imported into the United States only under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. The regulations in § 319.56–45 require that shipments of peas be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the national plant protection organization of Kenya with an additional declaration stating that the peas have been shelled and washed in accordance with § 319.56–45 and have been inspected and found free of pests. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of this information collection activity for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.15 hours per response. Respondents: Importers and Kenyan national plant protection organizations and producers. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 2. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 20. Estimated Annual Number of Responses: 40. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 6 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.
