SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: National Veterinary Services Laboratories; Bovine Spongiform 
Encephalopathy Surveillance Program Documents.
    OMB Number: 0579-xxxx.
    Type of Request: 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 
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is authorized, among other 
things, to carry out activities to detect, control, and eradicate pests 
and diseases of livestock within the United States. APHIS' National 
Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) safeguard U.S. animal health 
and contribute to public health by ensuring that timely and accurate 
laboratory support is provided by their nationwide animal health 
diagnostic system.
    NVSL conducts an ongoing surveillance program to monitor and assess 
changes to the BSE status of U.S cattle and to provide mechanisms for 
early detection of BSE. NVSL collects samples from a variety of sites 
and from the cattle populations where the disease is most likely to be 
detected. These diagnostic services involve information collection 
activities, including the BSE Surveillance Submission Form/Continuation 
Sheet (VS Forms 17-146/17-146A) and the BSE Surveillance Data 
Collection Form (VS Form 17-131).
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities for 3 years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as 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 
information collection, 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 information collection 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 0.1000068 hours per response.
    Respondents: Slaughter establishments, offsite collection 
facilities for condemned slaughter, 3D/4D facilities, veterinary 
diagnostic laboratories, and State animal health personnel.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 60.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 732.95.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 43,977.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 4,398 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
