OMB Control Number: 0579–0141. Summary of Collection: The Animal Health protection Act (AHPA) of 2002 is the primary Federal law governing the protection of the health of animals under the Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulatory authority. The law gives the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to detect, control, or eradicate pests or diseases of livestock or poultry. The AHPA is contained in Title X, Subtitle E, and Sections 10401–18 of Public Law 107– 171, dated may 13, 2002, and the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002. The regulations under which disease prevention activities are contained are in Title 9, Chapter 1, Subchapter D, and Parts 91 through 99 of the Code of Federal Regulations. The purpose of these regulations is to allow poultry meat that originates in the United States to be shipped, for processing purposes, to a region where exotic Newcastle disease exists, and then returned to the United States. The process entails the use of four information collection activities in the form of a certificate of origin that must be issued, including serial numbers that must be recorded, records that must be maintained, and cooperative service agreements that must be signed and an a certificates for shipment back to the United States. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS will collect information to ensure that imported poultry carcasses pose a negligible risk of introducing END into the United States. If the information is not collected, it would significantly cripple APHIS’ ability to ensure that poultry carcasses imported from regions affected with END pose a negligible risk of introducing this disease into the United States. This would make a disease incursion event much more likely, with potentially devastating effects on the U.S. poultry industry.
