SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Longan From Taiwan. OMB Control Number: 0579–0351. 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. Regulations authorized by the PPA concerning the importation of fruits and vegetables into the United States from certain parts of the world are contained in ‘‘Subpart— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–71). Under these regulations, longan from Taiwan are subject to certain conditions before entering the United States to ensure that exotic plant pests are not introduced into the United States. The regulations require the use of cold treatment and special port-of-arrival inspection procedures for certain quarantine pests. In addition, the fruit must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate stating that the fruit was inspected and found to be free of certain pests, and the individual cartons or boxes in which the longan are shipped must be stamped or printed with a statement prohibiting their importation into or distribution within the State of Florida. Since the last extension of approval for these information collection activities, we realized that we counted the estimated annual number of responses per respondent under the estimated annual number of respondents. We have corrected both estimates in this document. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 0.0018 hours per response. Respondents: National plant protection organization of Taiwan and importers of longan. Estimated annual number of respondents: 2. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 6,009. Estimated annual number of responses: 12,018. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 22 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 24th day of October 2014. Kevin Shea, Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
