Applications for permits required under current regulations (for import of African elephant sport-hunted trophies from CITES Appendix-I populations) are approved under OMB Control Number 1018–0093, which expires May 31, 2017. Under the revised rule, permits will be required to import all African elephant sport-hunted trophies from both Appendix-I and Appendix-II populations. As a result of the revised 4(d) rule, we expect to receive an additional 300 applications for permits. The burden associated with these additional applications is the basis of this information collection.

We asked for emergency approval because of the potential negative effects of delaying publication of the final 4(d) rule. OMB approved our request and assigned OMB Control No. 1018–0164, which expires November 30, 2016. We will ask OMB to grant regular approval (3 years) for this information collection. If OMB grants regular approval, we will include the burden Number of respondents Activity associated with the expected 300 additional applications in OMB Control Number 1018–0093 when we renew the approval in May 2017.
