SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7801 In accordance with a determination of NMFS under 50 CFR 216.91(a)(3)(v), implementing the Dolphin Protection Consumer Information Act, 16 U.S.C. 1385, that certain fisheries have a regular and significant mortality and serious injury of marine mammals, observer statements are required to accompany tuna product from tuna harvested in those fisheries (observer statements). See the Federal Register notice ‘‘Taking and Importing of Marine Mammals and Dolphin-Safe Tuna Products’’ published by NMFS on September 28, 2016 (81 FR 66625). NMFS’ authority to require these observer statements was subject to approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) because the statements are considered a ‘‘collection of information’’ subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Under the terms of the September 28, 2016, Federal Register notice, the observer statements would be required only upon publication of an additional notice in the Federal Register of OMB approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act. On November 18, 2016, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act, OMB approved the observer statements under Control Number 0648– 0335. Therefore, the observer statements are required beginning on January 23, 2017. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: January 17, 2017.
