Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Title: Animal Disease Traceability Information Systems, Agreements, and Reports (formerly: National Animal Identification System). OMB Control Number: 0579–0259. Summary of Collection: The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has the authority to issue orders and promulgate regulations to prevent the introduction into the United States and the dissemination within the United States of any pest or disease of livestock. APHIS’ regulations govern cooperative programs to control and eradicate communicable diseases of livestock. The regulations also establish requirements for the interstate movement of livestock to prevent the dissemination of diseases of livestock within the United States. Knowing where diseased and at-risk animals are, where they have been, and when, is indispensable in emergency response and in ongoing disease control and eradication programs. To provide a system that could provide for animal traceability, APHIS developed the Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) framework and ADT information systems. The basic data APHIS acquires through the ADT information systems will help APHIS obtain timely information on animal movement tracebacks and trace forwards when responding to an animal disease of concern. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS’ goal is to create an effective, consistent, and efficient system which will allow traces of animals to be completed in a timely manner, detection of disease, and ensure rapid containment of disease. The ADT information systems involve reporting and recordkeeping activities, including animal identification; premises registration; nonproducer participant registration; updates submitted by animal identification number manufacturers and managers; cooperative agreements; cooperative agreement applications; cooperator (State/Tribe) quarterly accomplishment reports; an identification number PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 management system; and records associated with animal movement activities. Failing to collect the needed information would make it impossible for APHIS to conduct a timely traceback or trace forward of animals potentially exposed to disease. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; State, Local, or Tribal Government. Number of Respondents: 60,315. Frequency of Responses: Recordkeeping; Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 47,054. Ruth Brown, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.
