The Order became effective on November 3, 2004. It is administered by the National Mango Board (Board) with oversight by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program is financed by an assessment of three quarters of a cent per pound on first handlers and importers of 500,000 pounds or more of mangos annually. The Order specifies that first handlers are responsible for submitting assessments to the Board on a monthly basis and maintaining records necessary to verify their reporting. Importers are responsible for paying assessments on mangos imported for consumption in the United States through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The purpose of the Order is to carry out an effective, continuous, and coordinated program of promotion, research, and information designed to strengthen mangos’ competitive position, and to maintain and expand the domestic market for mangos. The Board is composed of 18 members as follows: 8 Importers; 2 domestic producers; 1 first handler; and 7 foreign producers. Nominations for importer, domestic producer, and first handler members are solicited by importers, domestic producers, and first handlers, respectively. Nominations for foreign producer members are solicited from foreign producers and foreign producer associations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Order (7 CFR part 1206) is authorized 
under the Commodity Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996 
(Act) (7 U.S.C. 7411-7425).
    The Order became effective on November 3, 2004. It is administered 
by the National Mango Board (Board) with oversight by the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture (USDA). The program is financed by an 
assessment of three quarters of a cent per pound on first handlers and 
importers of 500,000 pounds or more of mangos annually. The Order 
specifies that first handlers are responsible for submitting 
assessments to the Board on a monthly basis and maintaining records 
necessary to verify their reporting. Importers are responsible for 
paying assessments on mangos imported for consumption in the United 
States through the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The purpose of 
the Order is to carry out an effective, continuous, and coordinated 
program of promotion, research, and information designed to strengthen 
mangos' competitive position, and to maintain and expand the domestic 
market for mangos.
    The Board is composed of 18 members as follows: 8 Importers; 2 
domestic producers; 1 first handler; and 7 foreign producers. 
Nominations for importer, domestic producer, and first handler members 
are solicited by importers, domestic producers, and first handlers, 
respectively. Nominations for foreign producer members are solicited 
from foreign producers and foreign producer associations. Members are 
appointed to the Board by the Secretary of Agriculture and serve a term 
of three years.
    The AMS published in the Federal Register on March 24, 2006, (71 FR 
14827) its plan to review certain regulations, including the mango 
program, under criteria contained in section 610 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 
601-612). Because many AMS regulations impact small entities, AMS 
decided, as a matter of policy, to review certain regulations which, 
although they may not meet the threshold requirement under section 610 
of the RFA, warrant review. According to the schedule published in 
2006, this notice and request for comments is made for the Order.
    The purpose of the review is to determine whether the Order should 
be continued without change, amended, or rescinded (consistent with the 
objectives of the Act) to minimize the impacts on small entities. AMS 
will consider the following factors: (1) The continued need for the 
Order; (2) the nature of complaints or comments received from the 
public concerning the Order; (3) the complexity of the Order; (4) the 
extent to which the Order overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other 
Federal rules, and, to the extent feasible, with State and local 
regulations; and (5) the length of time since the Order has been 
evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or 
other factors have changed in the area affected by the Order.
    Written comments, views, opinions, and other information regarding 
the Order's impact on small businesses are invited.
