Agricultural Marketing Service Title: Processed Egg and Egg Products Verification Program. OMB Control Number: 0581–New. Summary of Collection: The Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (AMA) (7 U.S.C. 1621–1627), authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to provide consumers with voluntary Federal certification services that facilitate the marketing of agricultural commodities. The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) provides these services under the authority of 7 CFR part 62—Livestock, Meat, and Other Agricultural Commodities (Quality System Verification Program (QSVP)). QSVP is a voluntary audit-based, user-fee programs collection that allows applicants to have program documentation and program processes assessed by AMS auditors. QSVP programs are available to respondents who request these services with fees based on an approved hourly rate established under 7 CFR part 62. The Processed Egg and Egg Products Export Verification (PEEPEV) Program is a voluntary export verification program that aids domestic food manufacturers in exporting processed food products containing eggs to other countries. As part of this service AMS will issue an official certificate for product from facilities verified by AMS as meeting the requirements of the Program. To facilitate this process, AMS will use a new form LPS–234, USDA Processed Egg and Egg Products Export Certificate. Need and Use of the Information: The information is collected from domestic food manufacturers who request to participate in the PEEPEV program to export processed food products containing egg to other countries. The information will be used by authorized representatives of the USDA (AMS, Livestock, Poultry, and Seed Program’s QAD national and field staff) to complete the form LPS–234. The information collection requirements in this request are essential to carry out the intent of the AMA, to provide PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 respondents the type of service they request and to administer the program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—Store Applications. Form Number: FNS–252; 252–E; 252– FE; 252–R; 252–2; and 252–C. OMB Number: 0584–0008. Expiration Date: August 31, 2017. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection of information. Abstract: Section 9(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.) requires that FNS determine the eligibility of retail food stores and certain food service organizations to accept SNAP benefits and to monitor them for compliance and continued eligibility and to ensure Program integrity. FNS is also responsible for requiring updates to application information and reviewing retail food store applications at least once every five years to ensure that each firm is under the same ownership and continues to meet eligibility requirements. The Act specifies that only those applicants whose participation will ‘‘effectuate the purposes of the program’’ should be authorized. There are six forms associated with this approved Office of Management VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:05 Feb 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 and Budget (OMB) information collection number 0584–0008—the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Application for Stores, Forms FNS–252 (English and Spanish) and FNS–252–E (paper and online version respectively); Farmer’s Market Application, Form FNS–252–FE; Meal Service Application, Form FNS–252–2; Reauthorization Application, Form FNS–252–R; and the Corporation Supplemental Application, Form FNS– 252–C used for individual (chain) stores under a corporation. For new authorizations, the majority of applicants use form FNS–252 or FNS– 252–E (paper or online, respectively). FNS is responsible for reviewing retail food store applications at least once every five years to ensure that each firm is under the same ownership and continues to meet eligibility guidelines. In order to accomplish this regulatory requirement, form FNS–252–R is used for reauthorization. In addition to these forms, during authorization or reauthorization, FNS may conduct an on-site store visit of the firm. The store visit of the firm helps FNS confirm that the information provided on the application is correct. An FNS representative or store visit contractor obtains permission to fill in the store visit checklist, photograph the store and asks the store owner or manager about the continued ownership of the store. Applicants using form FNS–252–E or FNS–252–FE must also first self-register for a Level 1 access account through the USDA eAuthentication system in order to start an online application. USDA eAuthentication facilitates the electronic authentication of an individual. The Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) amended the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) to increase the requirement that certain SNAP authorized food stores have available on a continual basis at least three varieties of items in each of four staple food categories, to a mandatory minimum of seven varieties. The 2014 Farm Bill also amended the Act to increase, for certain SNAP authorized retail food stores, the minimum number of categories which perishable foods are required from two to three. Further, using existing authority in the Act and feedback from a Request for Information that was published in the Federal Register on August 20, 2013, FNS proposed some additional changes. Among other items, these proposed changes would address depth of stock, amend the definition of ‘‘staple foods’’, and amend the definition of ‘‘retail food PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 store’’ to clarify when a retailer is a restaurant rather than a retail food store. These changes were made in the final rule titled ‘‘Enhancing Retailer in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) which was published in the Federal Register on December 15, 2016 (81 FR 90675). FNS seeks to renew the current information collection, and where appropriate, revise the information collection of all SNAP application forms (paper and electronic), in order to clarify and/or reword questions, instructions, and examples as a result of these regulatory changes required by the Act and amended by the Farm Bill. Such changes would include (1) revision to the Food Inventory section; (2) additional inventory stock examples of perishables and varieties of staple food items; (3) additional questions that ask whether the store has a Web site, whether optical scanners are used at the store, the name and address of the financial institution where SNAP deposits will be made, and whether the store offers any incentives or discounts to SNAP recipients; and (4) update assistance materials such as the General and Specific Instruction sections and on-line help screens. FNS used FY 2016 data in our calculation of burden estimates associated with this information collection as this was the most complete data available to us at this time. Table A below clarifies the burden of this information collection. The total burden hours associated with this information collection increased by approximately 2.33 minutes. The response time per respondent varies from 1 minute to 14.11 minutes. We estimate the new burden, on average, to be 6.34 minutes per respondent, an increase from 6.11 minutes. There is no recordkeeping burden associated with these forms. Affected Public: Business for Profit; Retail food stores; Farmers’ Markets. Estimated Number of Respondents: The total estimated number of respondents is 127,597 annually. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: Respondents complete either 1 application form at initial authorization or 1 reauthorization application, as appropriate, for a total of 1 response each. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 127,597. Estimated Time per Response: 6.34 minutes (0.109548).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)--Store 
Applications.
    Form Number: FNS-252; 252-E; 252-FE; 252-R; 252-2; and 252-C.
    OMB Number: 0584-0008.
    Expiration Date: August 31, 2017.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection of 
information.
    Abstract: Section 9(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as 
amended, (the Act) (7 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.) requires that FNS determine 
the eligibility of retail food stores and certain food service 
organizations to accept SNAP benefits and to monitor them for 
compliance and continued eligibility and to ensure Program integrity.
    FNS is also responsible for requiring updates to application 
information and reviewing retail food store applications at least once 
every five years to ensure that each firm is under the same ownership 
and continues to meet eligibility requirements. The Act specifies that 
only those applicants whose participation will ``effectuate the 
purposes of the program'' should be authorized.
    There are six forms associated with this approved Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) information collection number 0584-0008--
the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Application for Stores, 
Forms FNS-252 (English and Spanish) and FNS-252-E (paper and online 
version respectively); Farmer's Market Application, Form FNS-252-FE; 
Meal Service Application, Form FNS-252-2; Reauthorization Application, 
Form FNS-252-R; and the Corporation Supplemental Application, Form FNS-
252-C used for individual (chain) stores under a corporation. For new 
authorizations, the majority of applicants use form FNS-252 or FNS-252-
E (paper or online, respectively). FNS is responsible for reviewing 
retail food store applications at least once every five years to ensure 
that each firm is under the same ownership and continues to meet 
eligibility guidelines. In order to accomplish this regulatory 
requirement, form FNS-252-R is used for reauthorization. In addition to 
these forms, during authorization or reauthorization, FNS may conduct 
an on-site store visit of the firm. The store visit of the firm helps 
FNS confirm that the information provided on the application is 
correct. An FNS representative or store visit contractor obtains 
permission to fill in the store visit checklist, photograph the store 
and asks the store owner or manager about the continued ownership of 
the store.
    Applicants using form FNS-252-E or FNS-252-FE must also first self-
register for a Level 1 access account through the USDA eAuthentication 
system in order to start an online application. USDA eAuthentication 
facilitates the electronic authentication of an individual.
    The Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) amended the Food and 
Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) to increase the requirement that 
certain SNAP authorized food stores have available on a continual basis 
at least three varieties of items in each of four staple food 
categories, to a mandatory minimum of seven varieties. The 2014 Farm 
Bill also amended the Act to increase, for certain SNAP authorized 
retail food stores, the minimum number of categories which perishable 
foods are required from two to three. Further, using existing authority 
in the Act and feedback from a Request for Information that was 
published in the Federal Register on August 20, 2013, FNS proposed some 
additional changes. Among other items, these proposed changes would 
address depth of stock, amend the definition of ``staple foods'', and 
amend the definition of ``retail food store'' to clarify when a 
retailer is a restaurant rather than a retail food store. These changes 
were made in the final rule titled ``Enhancing Retailer in the 
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) which was published in 
the Federal Register on December 15, 2016 (81 FR 90675).
    FNS seeks to renew the current information collection, and where 
appropriate, revise the information collection of all SNAP application 
forms (paper and electronic), in order to clarify and/or reword 
questions, instructions, and examples as a result of these regulatory 
changes required by the Act and amended by the Farm Bill. Such changes 
would include (1) revision to the Food Inventory section; (2) 
additional inventory stock examples of perishables and varieties of 
staple food items; (3) additional questions that ask whether the store 
has a Web site, whether optical scanners are used at the store, the 
name and address of the financial institution where SNAP deposits will 
be made, and whether the store offers any incentives or discounts to 
SNAP recipients; and (4) update assistance materials such as the 
General and Specific Instruction sections and on-line help screens.
    FNS used FY 2016 data in our calculation of burden estimates 
associated with this information collection as this was the most 
complete data available to us at this time. Table A below clarifies the 
burden of this information collection.
    The total burden hours associated with this information collection 
increased by approximately 2.33 minutes. The response time per 
respondent varies from 1 minute to 14.11 minutes. We estimate the new 
burden, on average, to be 6.34 minutes per respondent, an increase from 
6.11 minutes. There is no recordkeeping burden associated with these 
forms.
    Affected Public: Business for Profit; Retail food stores; Farmers' 
Markets.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: The total estimated number of 
respondents is 127,597 annually.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: Respondents complete 
either 1 application form at initial authorization or 1 reauthorization 
application, as appropriate, for a total of 1 response each.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 127,597.
    Estimated Time per Response: 6.34 minutes (0.109548). The estimated 
time response varies from 1 minute to 14.11 minutes depending on 
respondent group, as shown in the table below:
