Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. As authorized by the PPA, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates the importation of citrus fruit from certain parts of the world as provided in ‘‘Subpart—Citrus Fruit’’ (7 CFR 319.28). In accordance with these regulations, APHIS allows the importation of Unshu oranges from Kyushu Island, Honshu Island, and Shikoku Island, Japan, into the United States under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. These conditions involve the use of information collection activities, including box labeling, a USDA–APHIS Application to Import Plants and Plant Products (Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) Form 587), and a USDA–APHIS Foreign Site Certificate of Inspection and/or Treatment (PPQ Form 203). We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. 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.
