SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Fresh Pitaya Fruit From Central America Into the Continental United States. OMB Control Number: 0579–0378. Type of Request: Revision to and 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, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates the importation of certain fruits and vegetables in accordance with the regulations in ‘‘Subpart—Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56–1 through 319.56–69). Under these regulations, fresh pitaya from Central America may be imported into the continental United States under certain conditions, as listed in 7 CFR 319.56–55, to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. The regulations require information collection activities, including production site certification and registration, review and maintenance of records, packinghouse registration, a workplan, records of fruit fly detections and checking of traps, identification of places of production on shipping documents, box marking, and a phytosanitary certificate with an additional declaration. When comparing the regulations to the information collection activities that were previously approved, we found that production site registration and box markings were omitted from the E:\FR\FM\14AUN1.SGM 14AUN1
