SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Untreated Oranges, Tangerines, and Grapefruit from Mexico Transiting the United States to Foreign Countries. OMB Number: 0579–0303. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (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 or their dissemination within the United States. This authority has been delegated to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The plant quarantine safeguard regulations in title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, part 352 allow certain products or articles that are classified as prohibited or restricted under other regulations in title 7 to be moved into or through the United States under certain conditions. Such articles include fruits and vegetables that are moved into the United States for: (1) A temporary stay where unloading or landing is not intended; (2) unloading or landing for transshipment and exportation; (3) unloading or landing for transportation and exportation; or (4) unloading and entry at a port other than the port of first arrival. Fruits and vegetables that are moved into the United States under these circumstances are subject to inspection and must be handled in accordance with conditions assigned under the safeguard regulations to prevent the introduction and dissemination of plant pests. In accordance with § 352.30, untreated oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit from Mexico may be moved into or through the United States in transit to foreign countries under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. These conditions involve the use of an information collection that includes an Application for Permit to Transit Plants and/or Plant Products, Plant Pests, and/ or Associated Soil Through the United States (Plant Protection and Quarantine Form 586). We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of this information collection activity for an additional 3 years.
