SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Lacey Act (18 U.S.C. 42) (Act) prohibits the importation of any 
animal deemed to be and prescribed by regulation to be injurious to:
     Human beings;
     The interests of agriculture, horticulture, and forestry; 
or
     Wildlife or the wildlife resources of the United States.
    The Department of the Interior is charged with enforcement of this 
Act. The Act and regulations at 50 CFR 16 allow for the importation of 
animals classified as injurious if specific criteria are met. To 
effectively carry out responsibilities and protect the aquatic 
resources of the United States, we must gather information on the 
animals being imported with regard to their source, destination, and 
health status. It is also imperative that we ensure the qualifications 
of those individuals who provide the fish health data and sign the 
health certificate upon which we base our decision to allow 
importation.
    We use three forms to collect this information:
    (1) FWS Form 3-2273 (Title 50 Certifying Official Form). New 
applicants and those seeking recertification as a title 50 certifying 
official provide information so that we can assess their 
qualifications.
    (2) FWS Form 3-2274 (U.S. Title 50 Certification Form). Certifying 
officials use this form or their own health certificate to affirm the 
health status of the fish or their reproductive products to be 
imported.
    (3) FWS Form 3-2275 (Title 50 Importation Request Form). We use the 
information on this form to ensure the safety of the shipment and to 
track and control importations.
