SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Unshu Oranges. OMB Control Number: 0579–0173. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. As authorized by the PPA, the United States Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) regulates the importation of citrus fruit from certain parts of the world as provided in ‘‘Subpart—Citrus Fruit’’ (7 CFR 319.28). In accordance with these regulations, APHIS allows the importation of Unshu oranges from certain regions into the United States under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. These conditions involve the use of information collection activities, including markings, registrations, permits, and certificates. The information collection requirements above are currently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB Control Number 0579–0173, Importation of Unshu Oranges, and OMB Control Number 0579–0418, Importation of Fresh Unshu Oranges From Japan into the United States. After OMB approves this combined information collection package (0579–0173), APHIS will retire OMB Control Number 0579–0418. We are asking OMB to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7785 of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.08 hours per response. Respondents: Growers and packinghouses of Unshu oranges, and the national plant protection organization of the exporting region. Estimated annual number of respondents: 27. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 2,469. Estimated annual number of responses: 66,663. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 5,585 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.
