(b) To minimize deterioration or loss. (c) To relieve economic hardship. To request an import or export of wildlife or wildlife products at nondesignated ports, applicants must complete FWS Form 3–200–2. Designated port exception permits are valid for 2 years. We may require a permittee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of the permit. (2) FWS Form 3–200–3 (Import/ Export License). It is unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products for commercial purposes without first obtaining an import/export license (50 CFR 14.91). Applicants must complete FWS Form 3–200–3 to request this license. We use the information that we collect on the application as an enforcement tool and management aid to: (a) Monitor the international wildlife market and (b) detect trends and changes in the commercial trade of wildlife and wildlife products. Import/ export licenses are valid for 1 year. We may require a licensee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of the import/export license. Permittees and licensees must maintain records that accurately describe each importation or exportation of wildlife or wildlife products made under the license, and any additional sale or transfer of the wildlife or wildlife products. In addition, licensees must make these records and the corresponding inventory of wildlife or wildlife products available for our inspection at reasonable times, subject to applicable limitations of law. We believe the burden associated with these recordkeeping requirements is minimal because the records already exist. Importers and exporters must complete FWS Form 3–177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife) for all imports or exports of wildlife or wildlife products. This form provides an accurate description of the imports and exports. OMB has approved the information collection for FWS Form 3–177 and assigned OMB Control Number 1018–0012. Normal business practices should produce records (e.g., invoices or bills of sale) needed to document additional sales or transfers of the wildlife or wildlife products.

    Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) 
makes it unlawful to import or export fish, wildlife, or plants without 
obtaining prior permission as deemed necessary for enforcing the ESA or 
upholding the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species 
(CITES) (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(e)). This information collection includes 
the following permit/license application forms:
    (1) FWS Form 3-200-2 (Designated Port Exception Permit). Under 50 
CFR 14.11, it is unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife 
products at ports other than those designated in 50 CFR 14.12 unless 
you qualify for an exception. These exceptions allow

[[Page 66762]]

qualified individuals, businesses, or scientific organizations to 
import or export wildlife or wildlife products at a nondesignated port:
    (a) When the wildlife or wildlife products will be used as 
scientific specimens.
    (b) To minimize deterioration or loss.
    (c) To relieve economic hardship.
    To request an import or export of wildlife or wildlife products at 
nondesignated ports, applicants must complete FWS Form 3-200-2. 
Designated port exception permits are valid for 2 years. We may require 
a permittee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of 
the permit.
    (2) FWS Form 3-200-3 (Import/Export License). It is unlawful to 
import or export wildlife or wildlife products for commercial purposes 
without first obtaining an import/export license (50 CFR 14.91). 
Applicants must complete FWS Form 3-200-3 to request this license. We 
use the information that we collect on the application as an 
enforcement tool and management aid to: (a) Monitor the international 
wildlife market and (b) detect trends and changes in the commercial 
trade of wildlife and wildlife products. Import/export licenses are 
valid for 1 year. We may require a licensee to file a report on 
activities conducted under authority of the import/export license.
    Permittees and licensees must maintain records that accurately 
describe each importation or exportation of wildlife or wildlife 
products made under the license, and any additional sale or transfer of 
the wildlife or wildlife products. In addition, licensees must make 
these records and the corresponding inventory of wildlife or wildlife 
products available for our inspection at reasonable times, subject to 
applicable limitations of law. We believe the burden associated with 
these recordkeeping requirements is minimal because the records already 
exist. Importers and exporters must complete FWS Form 3-177 
(Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife) for 
all imports or exports of wildlife or wildlife products. This form 
provides an accurate description of the imports and exports. OMB has 
approved the information collection for FWS Form 3-177 and assigned OMB 
Control Number 1018-0012. Normal business practices should produce 
records (e.g., invoices or bills of sale) needed to document additional 
sales or transfers of the wildlife or wildlife products.
    Comments: On June 17, 2013, we published in the Federal Register 
(78 FR 36236) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval 
for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments 
for 60 days, ending on August 16. We received no comments in response 
to that notice.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal 
identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
