All comments should be identified with the OMB control number 0910–0578. Also include the FDA docket number found in brackets in the heading of this document. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jonna Capezzuto, Office of Information Management (HFA–710), Food and Drug Administration, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, 301–796–3794. In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:07 Mar 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 Voluntary Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Manuals for Operators and Regulators of Retail and Food Service Establishments—(OMB Control Number 0910–0578—Extension) The Operator’s Manual contains information and recommendations for operators of retail and foodservice establishments who wish to develop and implement a voluntary food safety management system based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles. Operators may decide to incorporate some or all of the principles presented in the manual into their existing food safety management systems. The recordkeeping practices discussed in the manual are voluntary and may include documenting certain activities, such as monitoring and verification, which the operator may or may not deem necessary to ensure food safety. The manual includes optional worksheets to assist operators in developing and validating a voluntary food safety management system. The Regulator’s Manual contains recommendations for State, local, and tribal regulators on conducting riskbased inspections of retail and foodservice establishments, including recommendations about recordkeeping practices that can assist operators in preventing foodborne illness. These recommendations may lead to voluntary actions by operators based on consultation with regulators. For example, an operator may develop a risk control plan as an intervention strategy for controlling specific out-of-control foodborne illness risk factors identified during an inspection. Further, the manual contains recommendations to assist regulators when evaluating voluntary food safety management systems in retail and foodservice establishments. Such evaluations typically consist of the following two components: (1) Validation (assessing whether the establishment’s voluntary food safety management system is adequate to control food safety hazards) and (2) verification (assessing whether the establishment is following its voluntary food safety management system). The manual includes a sample entitled ‘‘Verification Inspection Checklist’’ to assist regulators when conducting verification inspections of establishments with voluntary food safety management systems. Types of operator records discussed in the manuals and listed in the PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11961 following burden estimates include: (1) Food safety management systems (plans that delineate the formal procedures to follow to control all food safety hazards in an operation); (2) risk control plans (HACCP-based, goal-oriented plans for achieving active managerial control over specific out-of-control foodborne illness risk factors); (3) hazard analysis (written assessment of the significant food safety hazards associated with foods prepared in the establishment); (4) prerequisite programs (written policies or procedures, including but not limited to, standard operating procedures, training protocols, and buyer specifications that address maintenance of basic operational and sanitation conditions); (5) monitoring (records showing the observations or measurements that are made to help determine if critical limits are being met and maintained); (6) corrective action (records indicating the activities that are completed whenever a critical limit is not met); (7) ongoing verification (records showing the procedures that are followed to ensure that monitoring and other functions of the food safety management system are being implemented properly); and (8) validation (records indicating that scientific and technical information is collected and evaluated to determine if the food safety management system, when properly implemented, effectively controls the hazards). All recommendations in both manuals are voluntary. For simplicity and to avoid duplicate estimates for operator recordkeeping practices that are discussed in both manuals, the burden for all collection of information recommendations for retail and foodservice operators are estimated together in table 1 of this document, regardless of the manual in which they appear. Collection of information recommendations for regulators in the Regulator’s Manual are listed separately in table 2 of this document. Description of Respondents: The likely respondents to this collection of information are operators and regulators of retail and foodservice establishments. In the Federal Register of December 19, 2008 (73 FR 77721), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the information collection provisions. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: E:\FR\FM\20MRN1.SGM 20MRN1
