SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Eggplant From Israel. OMB Control Number: 0579–0350. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. As authorized by the PPA, APHIS regulates the importation of fruits and vegetables into the United States from certain parts of the world as provided in ‘‘Subpart— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–69). Section 319.56–49 of the regulations provides for the importation of eggplant from Israel into the continental United States under specified conditions intended to prevent the introduction of certain quarantine pests. These requirements include the use of information collection activities, such as trapping records, box labeling, approval (grower registration) and inspection of pest-exclusionary structures, and a phytosanitary certificate issued by the national plant protection organization (NPPO) of Israel with an additional declaration confirming that the eggplant has been produced in accordance with the regulations. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1.0 hour per response. Respondents: Importers and growers of eggplant and the NPPO of Israel. Estimated annual number of respondents: 3. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1.667. Estimated annual number of responses: 5. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 5 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response). All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Virus-Serum-Toxin Act and Regulations.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0013.
    Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information 
collection.
    Abstract: Under the Virus-Serum-Toxin Act (21 U.S.C. 151-159), the 
Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is authorized to 
promulgate regulations designed to prevent the importation, 
preparation, sale, or shipment of harmful veterinary biological 
products. These regulations are contained in 9 CFR parts 102 to 124.
    Veterinary biological products include viruses, serums, toxins, and 
analogous products of natural or synthetic origin, such as vaccines, 
antitoxins, or the immunizing components of microorganisms intended for 
the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of diseases in domestic 
animals.
    APHIS issues licenses to qualified establishments that produce 
veterinary biological products and issues permits to importers of such 
products. APHIS also enforces requirements concerning production, 
packaging, labeling, and shipping of these products and sets standards 
for the testing of these products.
    To help ensure that veterinary biological products used in the 
United States are pure, safe, potent, and effective, APHIS requires 
certain information collection activities, including, among other 
things, establishment license applications, product license 
applications, product import permit applications, product and test 
report forms, field study summaries, stop distribution and sale 
notifications, and recordkeeping.
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 
years.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for 
the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, 
electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average 1.976 hours per response.
    Respondents: U.S. importers, exporters, and shippers of veterinary 
biological products; State veterinary authorities; and operators of 
establishments that produce or test veterinary biological products or 
that engage in product research and development.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 220.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 180.32
    Estimated annual number of responses: 39,670.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 78,382 hours. (Due to 
averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of 
the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per 
response.)
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.

    Done in Washington, DC, this 30th day of July 2014.
