SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Tomatoes From the Souss-Massa-Draa Region of Morocco. OMB Control Number: 0579–0345. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to prohibit or 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 regulates the importation of certain fruits and vegetables in accordance with the regulations contained in ‘‘Subpart– Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56 through 319.56–71). The regulations in § 319.56–28(g) allow tomatoes from the Souss-MassaDraa region of Morocco to be imported into the United States subject to certain conditions that will protect the tomatoes from infestation by the Mediterranean fruit fly (Medfly). Among other things, the regulations include requirements for pest-exclusionary structures, fruit fly trapping for production sites, and pestexclusionary packing procedures. In addition, the tomatoes must be pink at the time of packing. Allowing tomatoes to be imported in accordance with the regulations necessitates the use of certain information collection activities, including a phytosanitary certificate with a declaration, production site registration, and maintenance of records of trap placement, trap maintenance, and any Medfly captures. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 hour per response. Respondents: Importers, exporters, growers of tomatoes, and the national plant protection organization of Morocco. Estimated annual number of respondents: 11. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 36. Estimated annual number of responses: 398. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 395 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: Emergency Management Response System.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0071.
    Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information 
collection.
    Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et 
seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to 
protect the health of U.S. livestock and poultry populations by 
preventing the introduction and interstate spread of serious diseases 
and pests of livestock and by eradicating such diseases from the United 
States when feasible.
    The Emergency Management Response System (EMRS), which is a web-
based system, helps APHIS manage and investigate potential incidents of 
foreign animal diseases in the United States.
    When a potential foreign animal disease incident is reported, APHIS 
or State animal health officials dispatch a foreign animal disease 
veterinary diagnostician to the premises of the reported incident to 
conduct an investigation. The diagnostician obtains vital epidemiologic 
data by conducting field investigations, including sample collection, 
and by interviewing the owner or manager of the premises being 
investigated. These important data, submitted electronically by the 
diagnostician into EMRS, include such items as the purpose of the 
diagnostician's visit and suspected disease, type of operation on the 
premises, the number and type of animals on the premises, the number of 
sick or dead animals on the premises, the results of physical 
examinations of affected animals and necropsy examinations, vaccination 
information on the animals in the herd or flock, biosecurity practices 
at the site, whether any animals were recently moved out of the herd or 
flock, whether any new animals were recently introduced into the herd 
or flock, the number and kinds of test samples taken, and detailed 
geographic data concerning the premises location. EMRS allows these 
epidemiological and diagnostic data to be documented and transmitted 
more efficiently.
    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, such as 
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: Owners or operators of livestock and poultry 
facilities and State animal health officials.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 387.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 4.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 1,548.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 1,548 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.
