The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Veterinary Services (VS) maintains information regarding the import health requirements of other countries for animals and animal products exported from the United States, as most countries require a certification that our animals are free from specific diseases and show no clinical evidence of disease.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Live Swine, Pork, and 
Pork Products from Certain Regions Free of Classical Swine Fever in 
Chile and Mexico.
    OMB Number: 0579-0230.
    Type of Request: Revision and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et 
seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the 
United States Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other 
things, to prohibit or restrict the importation and interstate movement 
of animals and animal products to prevent the introduction into and 
dissemination within the United States of livestock diseases and pests. 
To carry out this mission, APHIS regulates the importation of animals 
and animal products into the United States. The regulations are 
contained in title 9, parts 92 through 98, of the Code of Federal 
Regulations.
    Part 94 allows the importation, subject to certain conditions, of 
live swine, pork, and pork products from certain regions that are free 
of classical swine fever (CSF) in Chile and Mexico to prevent the 
introduction of CSF into the United States. These conditions involve 
information collection activities, including certificates, cooperative 
agreements, and cooperative service agreements.
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 
years.
    This information collection includes information collection 
requirements approved under OMB control numbers 0579-0230, Importation 
of Live Swine, Pork, and Pork Products From Eight Mexican States; 0579-
0235, Classical Swine Fever Status of Chile; and 0579-0333, Importation 
of Pork and Pork Products. After OMB approves and combines the burden 
for the three collections under a single collection, Importation of 
Live Swine, Pork, and Pork Products from Certain Regions Free of 
Classical Swine Fever in Chile and Mexico (0579-0230), the Department 
will retire numbers 0579-0235 and 0579-0333.
    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 1 hour per response.
    Respondents: Federal animal health officials of the Governments of 
Chile and Mexico.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 11
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 7.82
