To implement the statutory requirements of FSRIA, USDA will gather relevant product information on biobased products for which manufacturers and vendors seek certification to use the label. The information collected will enable USDA to evaluate the qualifications of biobased products to carry the USDA label and to ensure that the label is used properly and in accordance with the requirements specified in 7 CFR part 3202.

Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 3,600 hours, one time only. Manufacturers and vendors are only required to respond once for each product they wish to label. Therefore, there is no ongoing annual paperwork burden on respondents unless they wish to apply to label additional products. Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
