Summary Of Collection: The Animal Health Protection Act (AHPA) of 2002 is the primary Federal law governing the protection of animal health.

Because of the serious threat to the U.S. swine industry, Congress passed Public Law 96–468 ‘‘Swine Health Protection Act’’ on October 17, 1980. This law requires USDA to ensure that all garbage is treated prior to its being fed to swine that are intended for interstate or foreign commerce or that substantially affect such commerce. The Act and the regulations will allow only operators of garbage treatment facilities, which meet certain specification to utilize garbage for swine feeding. APHIS will use various forms to collect information. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS collects information from persons desiring to obtain a permit (license) to operate a facility to treat garbage. Prior to issuance of a license, an inspection will be made of the facility by an authorized representative to determine if it meets all requirements of the regulations. Periodic inspections will be made to determine if licenses are meeting the standards for operation of their approved facilities. Upon receipt of the information from the Animal Health Officials, the information is used by Federal or State animal health personnel to determine whether the waste collector is feeding garbage to PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 swine, whether it is being treated, and whether the feeder is licensed or needs to be licensed.

The law gives the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to detect, control, or eradicate pest or diseases of livestock or poultry. The regulations under which the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) conduct disease prevention activities are contained in Title 9, Chapter 1, Subchapter D, Parts 94, place certain restrictions on the importation of swine, pork, and pork products into the United States. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS will collect information to ensue regulatory compliance for mitigation of classical swine fever (CFS) from imports of swine, pork, and pork products into the United States. One requirement is completion of a certificate issued by a salaried veterinary officer of the Governments of Mexico, Chile and/or Brazil that must accompany swine, pork, and pork products from their respective regions. Other requirements are a compliance agreement that is required by the operators of the processing establishment located in a non-CSF free region that processes pork products from CSF free regions and a cooperative service agreement that is required by the processing establishment located in a non-CSF free region that processes pork products from CSF free regions, or a party on its behalf, must enter into a cooperative service agreement with APHIS to pay all expenses incurred by APHIS for the initial evaluation of the processing establishment and periodically thereafter. If the information was not collected APHIS would be unable to establish an effective defense against the entry and spread of CSF from Mexican, E:\FR\FM\25FEN1.SGM 25FEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 37 / Tuesday, February 25, 2014 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Chilean, and Brazilian swine, pork, and pork product imports.

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) fruits and vegetables regulations allow the importation, under certain conditions, of clementines, mandarins, and tangerines from Chile into the United States. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS requires that some plants or plant products are accompanied by a phytosanitary inspection certificate that is completed by plant health officials in the originating or transiting country. APHIS will use the information on this certificate to determine the pest condition of the shipment at the time of inspection in the foreign country.
