On October 1998, the OMB approved FCC Form 498, the ‘‘Service Provider Information Form’’ to enable USAC to collect service provider name and address, telephone number, Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN), contact names, contact telephone numbers, and remittance information. FCC Form 498 enables participants to request a Service Provider Identification Number (SPIN) and provides the official record for participation in the universal service support mechanisms. The remittance information provided by participants on FCC Form 498 enables USAC to make payments to participants in the universal service support mechanisms. The following proposed revisions have been made to the FCC Form 498 for which we seek OMB approval: • Form name changed to ‘‘Service Provider and Billed Entity Identification Number and Contact Information Form’’; • Added an additional field in block 3 for a company’s Federal Registration Number (FRN); • Added a column for the Study Area Code Company Name in block 8; • Added the ability for a carrier to designate an alternate bank account for the payment of BEAR funds in block 11; • Added a box in block 1 and a supplemental information sheet to allow respondents to include information about affiliates; • Updated the Principal Communications Types in block 14 to include additional business types as listed on the FCC Form 499–A; and • Added a box after every program on the form that will allow service providers to cease participation in the associated program without having to deactivate their entire SPIN. Corresponding adjustments were made to the instructions to reflect the proposed changes to the FCC Form 498. The information collected on the FCC Form 498 is used by USAC to disburse federal universal service support consistent with the specifications of eligible participants in the universal service programs. FCC Form 498 submissions also provide USAC with updated contact information so that USAC can contact universal service fund participants when necessary. Without such information, USAC would not be able to distribute support to the proper entities and this would prevent the Commission from fulfilling its VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:43 Oct 01, 2015 Jkt 238001 statutory responsibilities under the Act to preserve and advance universal service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DoNot-Call Registry Fee Extension Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–188, 122 Stat. 635) (‘‘Act’’), mandates a specific fee structure to use in determining the fees for accessing the Registry. According to the Act, for each year beginning after fiscal year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount equal to the amounts specified in the Act, whichever fee is applicable, multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the Department of Labor) (‘‘CPI’’) for the most recently ended 12-month period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar amount if the CPI change is less than 1 percent. We measure this change in CPI from the time of the previous fee increase. Last year, for fiscal year 2015, we calculated an increase in the CPI of 1.56 percent, and adjusted the fees accordingly (79 FR 51477 (August 29, 2014)). The average value of the CPI for the 12-month period ending June 2014 was 234.966; the average for the 12 months ending June 2015 was 236.677. This is an increase of 0.73 percent, less than the one percent threshold to trigger an increase. As this falls below the statute’s 1 percent required change in the CPI, there shall be no fee access increase. Therefore, the fees will remain at the current level of $60 per area code, with a maximum fee of $16,482. The access fee for each area code during the second six months of an entity’s annual subscription period remains at $30.

The notice for the proposed information collection is published to obtain comments from the public and affected agencies.

Written PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background and Brief Description The purpose of this information collection proposal is to request a revision of a currently approved data collection ‘‘Foreign Quarantine Regulations’’ that expires September 30, 2017. This revision is an effort to provide greater clarity surrounding paperwork requirements and focuses exclusively on certain information collections within OMB Control No. 0920–0134 pertaining to importation of dogs into the United States. Specifically, CDC seeks to make the following changes: • CDC is asking to correct a transcription error in the burden tables in section 12. Currently, the relevant IC reads: 71.51(b)(2) Dogs/cats: Certification of Confinement, Vaccination (CDC form 75.37). It should have been: 71.51(c)(2) Dogs: Certification of Confinement, Vaccination (CDC form 75.37). • CDC is also proposing to replace the CDC form 75.37 NOTICE TO OWNERS AND IMPORTERS OF DOGS: Requirement for Dog Confinement with a new Application For Permission To Import A Dog Unimmunized Against Rabies, which, if the importer meets the criteria for importation, will be followed by a CDC-completed Permit to Conditionally Import a Dog Inadequately Immunized against Rabies—Single Entry. • CDC is also requesting approval to change and split the current information collection (IC) ‘‘71.51(c)(2) Dogs/cats: Certification of Confinement, Vaccination (CDC form 75.37)’’ into two separate ICs. • CDC will include one modified IC: ‘‘71.51(c)(2), (d) Application For Permission To Import A Dog Unimmunized Against Rabies’’. This will include a reduced estimate of the numbers of these permits, formerly CDC form 75.37 NOTICE TO OWNERS AND IMPORTERS OF DOGS: Requirement for Dog Confinement, issued each year. • CDC will include a separate IC pertaining to 71.51(c)(1), (d). The title for this IC is Valid Rabies Vaccination Certificate, which will include only the burden associated with rabies vaccination certificates. E:\FR\FM\02OCN1.SGM 02OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Do-Not-Call Registry Fee Extension Act 
of 2007 (Pub. L. 110-188, 122 Stat. 635) (``Act''), mandates a specific 
fee structure to use in determining the fees for accessing the 
Registry. According to the Act, for each year beginning after fiscal 
year 2009, the dollar amounts charged shall be increased by an amount 
equal to the amounts specified in the Act, whichever fee is applicable, 
multiplied by the percentage (if any) by which the average of the 
monthly consumer price index (for all urban consumers published by the 
Department of Labor) (``CPI'') for the most recently ended 12-month 
period ending on June 30 exceeds the CPI for the 12-month period ending 
June 30, 2008. The Act also states that any increase shall be rounded 
to the nearest dollar and that there shall be no increase in the dollar 
amount if the CPI change is less than 1 percent. We measure this change 
in CPI from the time of the previous fee increase.
    Last year, for fiscal year 2015, we calculated an increase in the 
CPI of 1.56 percent, and adjusted the fees accordingly (79 FR 51477 
(August 29, 2014)). The average value of the CPI for the 12-month 
period ending June 2014 was 234.966; the average for the 12 months 
ending June 2015 was 236.677. This is an increase of 0.73 percent, less 
than the one percent threshold to trigger an increase.
    As this falls below the statute's 1 percent required change in the 
CPI, there shall be no fee access increase. Therefore, the fees will 
remain at the current level of $60 per area code, with a maximum fee of 
$16,482. The access fee for each area code during the second six months 
of an entity's annual subscription period remains at $30. Users will 
still be able to access the first five area codes free of charge, and 
organizations that are not required to comply with the Registry will 
still be able to access it if they choose to while remaining exempt 
from fees.
