With a few exceptions, businesses, individuals, or government agencies importing into or exporting from the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife product must complete and submit to the Service an FWS Form 3–177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife). This form as well as FWS Form 3–177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions for completion are available for electronic submission at https:// edecs.fws.gov.

Businesses or individuals must file FWS Forms 3–177 and 3–177a with us at the time and port where they request clearance of the import or export of wildlife or wildlife products. Our regulations allow for certain species of wildlife to be imported or exported between the United States and Canada or Mexico at U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports, even though our wildlife inspectors may not be present. In these instances, importers and exporters may file the forms with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. We collect the following information: (1) Name of the importer or exporter and broker. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Feb 12, 2013 Jkt 229001 (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife. (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required).

In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill of lading number, the location of the shipment containing the fish or wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical examination of the shipment is necessary. In October 2012, we requested that OMB approve, on an emergency basis, our request to collect information associated with a user fee exemption program for low-risk importations and exportations. OMB approved our request and assigned OMB Control No. 1018–0152, which expires April 30, 2013. Businesses that possess a valid Service import/export license may request to participate in this fee exemption program through our electronic filing system (eDecs). Qualified licensees must create an eDecs filer account as an importer or exporter if they do not already have one and file their required documents electronically. To be an approved participating business in the program and receive an exemption from the designated port base inspection fee, the licensed business must certify that it will exclusively import or export nonliving wildlife that is not listed as injurious under 50 CFR part 16 and does not require a permit or certificate under 50 CFR parts 15 (Wild Bird Conservation Act), 17 (Endangered Species Act), 18 (Marine Mammal Protection Act), 20 (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), 21 (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), 22 (Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act), or 23 PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). The requesting business also must certify that it will exclusively import or export the above type of wildlife shipments where the quantity in each shipment of wildlife parts or products is 25 or fewer and the total value of each wildlife shipment is $5,000 or less. Any licensed business that has more than two wildlife shipments that were refused clearance in the 5 years prior to its request is not eligible for the program. In addition, any licensees that have been assessed a civil penalty, issued a Notice of Violation, or convicted of a misdemeanor or felony violation involving wildlife import or export will not be eligible to participate in the program. We are incorporating the certification statement for the user fee exemption program into our renewal of OMB Control No. 1018–0012. If OMB approves this renewal, we will discontinue OMB Control No. 1018– 0152. Comments: On October 3, 2012, we published in the Federal Register (77 FR 60454) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for OMB Control No. 1018–0012. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on December 3, 2012. No comments were received in response to that notice. On October 26, 2012, we published an interim rule (77 FR 65321) announcing the user fee exemption program. In that rule, we solicited comments for 60 days on the information collection requirements, ending on December 26, 2012. We received two comments.

Abstract The Captive Wildlife Safety Act (CWSA) amends the Lacey Act by making it illegal to import, export, buy, sell, transport, receive, or acquire, in interstate or foreign commerce, live lions, tigers, leopards, snow leopards, clouded leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, or cougars, or any hybrid combination of any of these species, unless certain exceptions are met. There are several exemptions to the prohibitions of the CWSA, including accredited wildlife sanctuaries. There is no requirement for wildlife sanctuaries to submit applications to qualify for the accredited wildlife sanctuary exemption. Wildlife sanctuaries themselves will determine if they qualify. To qualify, they must meet all of the following criteria: • Approval by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, which is described in sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of that code. • Do not engage in commercial trade in the prohibited wildlife species, including offspring, parts, and products. • Do not propagate the prohibited wildlife species. • Have no direct contact between the public and the prohibited wildlife species. The basis for this information collection is the recordkeeping requirement that we place on accredited wildlife sanctuaries. We require accredited wildlife sanctuaries to maintain complete and accurate records of any possession, transportation, acquisition, disposition, importation, or exportation of the prohibited wildlife species as defined in the CWSA (50 CFR part 14, subpart K). Records must be up to date and include: (1) the names and addresses of persons to or from whom any prohibited wildlife species has been PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 acquired, imported, exported, purchased, sold, or otherwise transferred; and (2) the dates of these transactions. Accredited wildlife sanctuaries must: • Maintain these records for 5 years. • Make these records accessible to Service officials for inspection at reasonable hours. • Copy these records for Service officials, if requested. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1018–0129. Title: Captive Wildlife Safety Act, 50 CFR 14.250–14.255. Service Form Number: None. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Description of Respondents: Accredited wildlife sanctuaries. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: Ongoing. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 750. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 750. Estimated Time Per Response: 1 hour. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 750. III. Comments We invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request to OMB to approve this IC. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time.

    Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) makes 
it unlawful to import or export fish, wildlife, or plants without 
filing a declaration or report deemed necessary for enforcing the Act 
or upholding the Convention on International Trade in Endangered 
Species (CITES) (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(e)). With a few exceptions, 
businesses, individuals, or government agencies importing into or 
exporting from the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife 
product must complete and submit to the Service an FWS Form 3-177 
(Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife). This 
form as well as FWS Form 3-177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions 
for completion are available for electronic submission at https://edecs.fws.gov. These forms are also available in fillable format at 
http://www.fws.gov/forms/.
    The information that we collect is unique to each wildlife shipment 
and enables us to:
     Accurately inspect the contents of the shipment;
     Enforce any regulations that pertain to the fish, 
wildlife, or wildlife products contained in the shipment; and
     Maintain records of the importation and exportation of 
these commodities.
    Businesses or individuals must file FWS Forms 3-177 and 3-177a with 
us at the time and port where they request clearance of the import or 
export of wildlife or wildlife products. Our regulations allow for 
certain species of wildlife to be imported or exported between the 
United States and Canada or Mexico at U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection ports, even though our wildlife inspectors may not be 
present. In these instances, importers and exporters may file the forms 
with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. We collect the following 
information:
    (1) Name of the importer or exporter and broker.
    (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife.
    (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required).
    (4) Description, quantity, and value of the fish or wildlife.
    (5) Natural country of origin of the fish or wildlife.
    In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill 
of lading number, the location of the shipment containing the fish or 
wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or 
wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical examination of 
the shipment is necessary.
    In October 2012, we requested that OMB approve, on an emergency 
basis, our request to collect information associated with a user fee 
exemption program for low-risk importations and exportations. OMB 
approved our request and assigned OMB Control No. 1018-0152, which 
expires April 30, 2013.
    Businesses that possess a valid Service import/export license may 
request to participate in this fee exemption program through our 
electronic filing system (eDecs). Qualified licensees must create an 
eDecs filer account as an importer or exporter if they do not already 
have one and file their required documents electronically. To be an 
approved participating business in the program and receive an exemption 
from the designated port base inspection fee, the licensed business 
must certify that it will exclusively import or export nonliving 
wildlife that is not listed as injurious under 50 CFR part 16 and does 
not require a permit or certificate under 50 CFR parts 15 (Wild Bird 
Conservation Act), 17 (Endangered Species Act), 18 (Marine Mammal 
Protection Act), 20 (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), 21 (Migratory Bird 
Treaty Act), 22 (Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act), or 23 (the 
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna 
and Flora). The requesting business also must certify that it will 
exclusively import or export the above type of wildlife shipments where 
the quantity in each shipment of wildlife parts or products is 25 or 
fewer and the total value of each wildlife shipment is $5,000 or less. 
Any licensed business that has more than two wildlife shipments that 
were refused clearance in the 5 years prior to its request is not 
eligible for the program. In addition, any licensees that have been 
assessed a civil penalty, issued a Notice of Violation, or convicted of 
a misdemeanor or felony violation involving wildlife import or export 
will not be eligible to participate in the program.
    We are incorporating the certification statement for the user fee 
exemption program into our renewal of OMB Control No. 1018-0012. If OMB 
approves this renewal, we will discontinue OMB Control No. 1018-0152.
    Comments: On October 3, 2012, we published in the Federal Register 
(77 FR 60454) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval 
for OMB Control No. 1018-0012. In that notice, we solicited comments 
for 60 days, ending on December 3, 2012. No comments were received in 
response to that notice. On October 26, 2012, we published an interim 
rule (77 FR 65321) announcing the user fee exemption program. In that 
rule, we solicited comments for 60 days on the information collection 
requirements, ending on December 26, 2012. We received two comments. 
One commenter recommended changes in the criteria for the fee exemption 
program. The other commenter objected to the fee waiver. The commenters 
did not address the information collection requirements, and we did not 
make any changes to the information collection.

[[Page 10200]]

    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this

     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
