SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for review and clearance. Establishing and Maintaining a List of U.S. Dairy Product Manufacturers/ Processors With Interest in Exporting to Chile (OMB Control Number 0910– 0509)—Extension As a direct result of discussions that have been adjunct to the U.S./Chile Free Trade Agreement, Chile has recognized FDA as the competent U.S. food safety authority and has accepted the U.S. regulatory system for dairy inspections. Chile has concluded that it will not require individual inspections of U.S. firms by Chile as a prerequisite for trade, but will accept firms identified by FDA as eligible to export to Chile. Therefore, in the Federal Register of June 22, 2005 (70 FR 36190), FDA announced the availability of a revised guidance document entitled ‘‘Establishing and Maintaining a List of U.S. Dairy Product Manufacturers/ Processors With Interest in Exporting to Chile.’’ The guidance can be found at http://www.fda.gov/Food/Guidance ComplianceRegulatoryInformation/ GuidanceDocuments/ImportsExports/ ucm078936.htm. The guidance document explains that FDA has established a list that is provided to the government of Chile and posted on http://www.fda.gov/Food/International Activities/Exports/ucm120245.htm, which identifies U.S. dairy product manufacturers/processors that have expressed interest to FDA in exporting dairy products to Chile, are subject to FDA jurisdiction, and are not the subject of a pending judicial enforcement action (i.e., an injunction or seizure) or a pending warning letter. The term ‘‘dairy products,’’ for purposes of this list, is not intended to cover the raw agricultural commodity raw milk. Application for inclusion on the list is voluntary. However, Chile has advised that dairy products from firms not on E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 16512 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 51 / Friday, March 15, 2013 / Notices this list could be delayed or prevented by Chilean authorities from entering commerce in Chile. The guidance explains what information firms should submit to FDA in order to be considered for inclusion on the list and what criteria FDA intends to use to determine eligibility for placement on the list. The document also explains how FDA intends to update the list and how FDA intends to communicate any new information to Chile. Finally, the guidance notes that FDA considers the information on this list, which is provided voluntarily with the understanding that it will be posted on FDA’s Web site and communicated to, and possibly further disseminated by, Chile, to be information that is not protected from disclosure under 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). Under the guidance, FDA recommends that U.S. firms that want to be placed on the list send the following information to FDA: Name and address of the firm and the manufacturing plant; name, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the contact person; a list of products presently shipped and expected to be shipped in the next 3 years; identities of Agencies that inspect the plant and the date of last inspection; plant number and copy of last inspection notice; and, if other than an FDA inspection, copy of last inspection report. FDA requests that this information be updated every 2 years. In the Federal Register of November 15, 2012 (77 FR 68128), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. No comments were received. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Number of respondents Activity Number of responses per respondent Average burden per response Total annual responses Total hours New written requests to be placed on the list .....................

The estimate of the number of firms that will submit new written requests to be placed on the list, biannual updates and occasional updates is based on the FDA’s experience maintaining the list over the past 7 years. The estimate of the number of hours that it will take a firm to gather the information needed to be placed on the list or update its information is based on FDA’s experience with firms submitting similar requests. FDA believes that the information to be submitted will be readily available to the firms. On average, over the last 3 years, the list contained approximately 176 firms. FDA estimates that, each year, approximately 25 new firms will apply to be added to the list. In any given year, some firms choose not to resubmit their information. These firms are removed from the list quarterly. This occurrence results in the number of firms to remain at approximately 176. We estimate that a firm will require 1.5 hours to read the guidance, gather the information needed, and to prepare a communication to FDA that contains the information and requests that the firm be placed on the list for a total of 37.5 hours, rounded to 38. Under the guidance, every 2 years each producer on the list must provide updated information in order to remain on the list. FDA estimates that each year approximately half of the firms on the list, 88 firms (176 × 0.5 = 88), will resubmit the information to remain on the list. We estimate that a firm already VerDate Mar<14>2013 17:37 Mar 14, 2013 Jkt 229001 on the list will require 1.0 hours to biannually update and resubmit the information to FDA, including time reviewing the information and corresponding with FDA, for a total of 88 hours. In addition, FDA expects that, each year, approximately 25 firms will need to submit an occasional update and each firm will require 0.5 hours to prepare a communication to FDA reporting the change, for a total of 12.5 hours, rounded to 13.

competent U.S. food safety authority and has accepted the U.S. 
regulatory system for dairy inspections. Chile has concluded that it

firms should submit to FDA in order to be considered for inclusion on 
the list and what criteria FDA intends to use to determine eligibility 
for placement on the list. The document also explains how FDA intends

address (if available) of the contact person; a list of products

    The estimate of the number of firms that will submit new written 
requests to be placed on the list, biannual updates and occasional 
updates is based on the FDA's experience maintaining the list over the 
past 7 years. The estimate of the number of hours that it will take a 
firm to gather the information needed to be placed on the list or 
update its information is based on FDA's experience with firms 
submitting similar requests. FDA believes that the information to be 
submitted will be readily available to the firms.
    On average, over the last 3 years, the list contained approximately 
176 firms. FDA estimates that, each year, approximately 25 new firms 
will apply to be added to the list. In any given year, some firms 
choose not to resubmit their information. These firms are removed from 
the list quarterly. This occurrence results in the number of firms to 
remain at approximately 176. We estimate that a firm will require 1.5 
hours to read the guidance, gather the information needed, and to 
prepare a communication to FDA that contains the information and 
requests that the firm be placed on the list for a total of 37.5 hours, 
rounded to 38. Under the guidance, every 2 years each producer on the 
list must provide updated information in order to remain on the list. 
FDA estimates that each year approximately half of the firms on the 
list, 88 firms (176 x 0.5 = 88), will resubmit the information to 
remain on the list. We estimate that a firm already on the list will 
require 1.0 hours to biannually update and resubmit the information to 
FDA, including time reviewing the information and corresponding with 
FDA, for a total of 88 hours. In addition, FDA expects that, each year, 
approximately 25 firms will need to submit an occasional update and 
each firm will require 0.5 hours to prepare a communication to FDA 
reporting the change, for a total of 12.5 hours, rounded to 13.
