Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 171 / Wednesday, September 4, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES importation, entry or movement of plants and plant pests, to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. The Plant Protection and Quarantine, a program within USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), enforce these regulations. APHIS requires artificially dwarfed plants that are imported into the United States to have been grown under certain conditions in greenhouses or screen houses within nurseries registered with the government of the country where the plants were grown. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS will collect information from the phytosanitary certificate to state that the plants were: (1) Grown for at least 2 years in a nursery that is registered with the government of the country of export; (2) grown in pots containing only sterile growing media; (3) grown on benches at least 50 cm above the ground; and (4) inspected (along with the nursery itself) at least once each year by the plant protection service of the country of export. The collected information will enable PPQ to verify that the imported plants were grown under conditions that helped keep the plants free from infestation by certain longhorned beetles and other pests. APHIS also uses the information on this certificate to determine the pest condition of the shipment at the time of inspection in the foreign country. Without the information, all shipment would need to be inspected very thoroughly, thereby requiring considerably more time. This would slow the clearance of international shipments. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; Federal Government Number of Respondents: 30 Frequency of Responses: Reporting; On occasion Total Burden Hours: 38 Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Title: Importation of Plants for Planting OMB Control Number: 0579–0279 Summary of Collection: Under the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to prohibit or restrict the importation, entry, exportation, or movement in interstate commerce of plant pests and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulations contained in ‘‘Subpart-Plants for Planting,’’ §§ 319.37 through 319.37–14 (referred to as the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:51 Sep 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 54445 regulations), restricts among other things, the importation of living plants, plant parts, and seeds for propagation. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS requires that some plants or plant products be accompanied by either a phytosanitary inspection certificates with additional declaration statements, grower registration and agreements, and production site registration for the export program. APHIS uses the information on these certificates to determine the pest condition of the shipment at the time of inspection in the foreign country. This information is used as a guide to the intensity of the inspection that APHIS must conduct when the shipment arrives. Without this information, APHIS could not verify that the imported plants for planting do not present a significant risk of introducing plant pests into the United States. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit; Federal government Number of Respondents: 60 Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion Total Burden Hours: 559 On August 9, 2013, we published a notice in the Federal Register (79 FR 48642–48644, Docket No. APHIS–2012–0104) of a proposed new system of records to be added to our inventory of records systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.
