Agricultural Research Service Title: Food Safety Education and Training Materials Sharing Form. OMB Control Number: 0518–0046. Summary of Collection: The USDA National Agricultural Library (NAL) has a Food Safety Education and Training Materials Database. The Database is a centralized gateway to access consumercentric materials for educators and others interested in food safety education. The collection of information is necessary to (1) Ensure resources are not duplicated (i.e., extension agents creating previously available education materials), (2) provide a central gateway to access the education materials, (3) create a systematic and efficient method of collecting data from USDA grantees, and (4) promote awareness of food safety education materials available for a variety of audiences. Materials that will be collected using the ‘‘Food Safety Education and Training Materials Sharing Form’’ will help the Food Safety Information Center (FSIC) staff identify food safety education and training resources for review and inclusion into the Education and Training Materials Database much faster and more efficiently. The authority for NAL to collect this information is contained in CFR, Title 7, Volume 1, Part 2, Subpart K, Sec. 2.65(92). Need and Use of the Information: FSIS staff members will use information collected by the Sharing Form to build and constantly enhance the Food Safety Education and Training Materials Database. Food safety educators access and use this database to identify and obtain curricula, lesson plans, training tools and participant materials. Vital information about these resources, such as a description of the resources, its creator, publishing and ordering information can be collected in a more standardized and efficient manner using the Sharing Form. Failure to collect this information would significantly inhibit the ability to provide up-to-date information on existing food safety education and training materials that are appropriate for food safety educators, consumers and other interested in food safety education.
