SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Petitions for Rulemaking.
    OMB Control Number: 0583-0136.
    Type of Request: Renewal of an approved information collection.
    Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the 
functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53) as specified in the 
Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the 
Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.), and 
the Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). FSIS 
protects the public by verifying that meat, poultry, and egg products 
are safe, wholesome, not adulterated, and correctly labeled.
    The Administrative Procedure Act requires that Federal agencies 
give interested persons the right to petition for issuance, amendment, 
or repeal of a rule (5 U.S.C. 553(e)).
    FSIS has regulations to govern the submission to the Agency of 
petitions for rulemaking (9 CFR part 392). These regulations are 
designed to encourage the filing of well-supported petitions that 
contain information that the Agency needs to evaluate a requested 
rulemaking in a timely manner. FSIS uses the information associated 
with a petition to assess the merits of the requested action and to 
determine whether to issue, amend, or repeal regulations in response to 
the petition.
    FSIS is requesting a renewal of the approved information collection 
addressing paperwork requirements regarding petitions submitted to the 
Agency. FSIS is making no changes to the approved collection.
    FSIS has made the following estimates based upon an information 
collection assessment.
    Estimate of Burden: FSIS estimates that it takes respondents an 
average of 40 hours per year to complete and submit a petition.
    Respondents: Official establishments, official plants, firms, trade 
associations, and public interest groups.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 400 hours. Copies of 
this information collection assessment can be obtained from Gina Kouba, 
Paperwork Reduction Act Coordinator, Food Safety and Inspection 
Service, USDA, 1400 Independence, SW., Room 6077, South Building, 
Washington, DC 20250, (202) 690-6510.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of FSIS's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of FSIS's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information, including 
through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or 
other technological collection techniques, or other forms of 
information technology. Comments may be sent to both FSIS, at the 
addresses provided above, and the Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office 
of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 
Washington, DC 20253.
    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.
