Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.; ESA) makes it unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products for commercial purposes without first obtaining an import/export license (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(d)). The ESA also requires that fish or wildlife be imported into or exported from the United States only at a designated port or at a nondesignated port under certain limited circumstances (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(f)). This information collection includes the following permit/license application forms: (1) FWS Form 3–200–2 (Designated Port Exception Permit). Under 50 CFR 14.11, it is unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products at ports other than those designated in 50 CFR 14.12 unless you qualify for an exception. The following exceptions allow qualified individuals, businesses, or scientific organizations to import or export wildlife or wildlife products at a nondesignated port: (a) To export the wildlife or wildlife products for scientific purposes; (b) To minimize deterioration or loss; or (c) To relieve economic hardship. To request authorization to import or export of wildlife or wildlife products at nondesignated ports, applicants must complete FWS Form 3–200–2. Designated port exception permits can be valid for up to 2 years. We may require a permittee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of the permit. (2) FWS Form 3–200–3a and 3–3b (Import/Export License). It is unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products for commercial purposes without first obtaining an import/export license (50 CFR 14.91). Applicants located in the United States must complete FWS Form 3–200–3a to request this license. Foreign applicants that reside or are located outside the United States must complete FWS Form 3–200–3b to request this license. We use the information that we collect on the application as an enforcement tool and management aid to (a) monitor the international wildlife market and (b) detect trends and changes in the commercial trade of wildlife and wildlife products.

We may require a licensee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of the import/export license. Permittees and licensees must maintain records that accurately describe each importation or exportation of wildlife or wildlife products made under the license, and any additional sale or transfer of the wildlife or wildlife products. In addition, licensees must make these records and the corresponding inventory of wildlife or wildlife products available for our inspection at reasonable times, subject to applicable limitations of law. We believe the burden associated with these recordkeeping requirements is minimal because the records already exist. Importers and exporters must complete FWS Form 3–177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife) for all imports or exports of wildlife or wildlife products. This form provides an accurate description of the imports and exports. OMB has approved the information collection for FWS Form 3–177 and assigned OMB Control Number 1018–0012. Normal business practices should produce records (e.g., invoices or bills of sale) needed to document subsequent sales or transfers of the wildlife or wildlife products. Comments: On September 6, 2016, we published in the Federal Register (81 FR 61239) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew approval for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on November 7, 2016. We received no comments in response to this notice. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: • Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; • The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents.

    Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $1,073,500.
    Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.; ESA) 
makes it unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products for 
commercial purposes without first obtaining an import/export license 
(see 16 U.S.C. 1538(d)). The ESA also requires that fish or wildlife be 
imported into or exported from the United States only at a designated 
port or at a nondesignated port under certain limited circumstances 
(see 16 U.S.C. 1538(f)). This information collection includes the 
following permit/license application forms:
    (1) FWS Form 3-200-2 (Designated Port Exception Permit). Under 50 
CFR 14.11, it is unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife 
products at ports other than those designated in 50 CFR 14.12 unless 
you qualify for an exception. The following exceptions allow qualified 
individuals, businesses, or scientific organizations to import or 
export wildlife or wildlife products at a nondesignated port:
    (a) To export the wildlife or wildlife products for scientific 
purposes;
    (b) To minimize deterioration or loss; or
    (c) To relieve economic hardship.
    To request authorization to import or export of wildlife or 
wildlife products at nondesignated ports, applicants must complete FWS 
Form 3-200-2. Designated port exception permits can be valid for up to 
2 years. We may require a permittee to file a report on activities 
conducted under authority of the permit.
    (2) FWS Form 3-200-3a and 3-3b (Import/Export License). It is 
unlawful to import or export wildlife or wildlife products for 
commercial purposes without first obtaining an import/export license 
(50 CFR 14.91). Applicants located in the United States must complete 
FWS Form 3-200-3a to request this license. Foreign applicants that 
reside or are located outside the United States must complete FWS Form 
3-200-3b to request this license. We use the information that we 
collect on the application as an enforcement tool and management aid to 
(a) monitor the international wildlife market and (b) detect trends and 
changes in the commercial trade of wildlife and wildlife products. 
Import/export licenses are valid for up to 1 year. We may require a 
licensee to file a report on activities conducted under authority of 
the import/export license.
    Permittees and licensees must maintain records that accurately 
describe each importation or exportation of wildlife or wildlife 
products made under the license, and any additional sale or transfer of 
the wildlife or wildlife products. In addition, licensees must make 
these records and the corresponding inventory of wildlife or wildlife 
products available for our inspection at reasonable times, subject to 
applicable limitations of law. We believe the burden associated with 
these recordkeeping requirements is minimal because the records already 
exist. Importers and exporters must complete FWS Form 3-177 
(Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife) for 
all imports or exports of wildlife or wildlife products. This form 
provides an accurate description of the imports and exports. OMB has 
approved the information collection for FWS Form 3-177 and assigned OMB 
Control Number 1018-0012. Normal business practices should produce 
records (e.g., invoices or bills of sale) needed to document subsequent 
sales or transfers of the wildlife or wildlife products.
    Comments: On September 6, 2016, we published in the Federal 
Register (81 FR 61239) a notice of our intent to request that OMB renew 
approval for this information collection. In that notice, we solicited 
comments for 60 days, ending on November 7, 2016. We received no 
comments in response to this notice.
    We again invite comments concerning this information collection on:
     Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, 
including whether or not the information will have practical utility;
     The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this 
collection of information;
     Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your address, phone number, email 
address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you 
should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal 
identifying information, may be made publicly available at any time. 
While you can ask OMB in your comment to withhold your personal 
identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that it 
will be done.
