OMB Control Number: 0579–0372. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to, among other things, prohibit or restrict the importation and interstate movement of animals and animal products into the United States to prevent the introduction of animal diseases and pests. The regulations for the importation of animals and animal products are contained in 9 CFR parts 92 through 98. The regulations in part 94 provide the requirements for the importation of specified animals and animal products to prevent the introduction into the United States of various animal diseases, including rinderpest and footand-mouth disease (FMD). Among other things, the regulations in § 94.1 place certain restrictions on beef and ovine meat exported to the United States in accordance with § 94.29, when the beef or ovine meat enters a port or otherwise transits a region where rinderpest or FMD exists during shipment to the United States. An authorized official of the exporting region must provide the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) with certification that specific conditions for importation listed in § 94.1 have been met. Section 94.29 places certain restrictions on the importation of beef and ovine meat from Uruguay and fresh (chilled or frozen) beef from certain regions in Argentina and Brazil into the United States to prevent the introduction of FMD. These conditions involve information collection activities, such as the requirement that APHIS collect, for each shipment, certification from an authorized veterinary official of the country of export that the conditions in § 94.29 have been met. For some of these conditions to be met, the facility in which the bovines and sheep are slaughtered must allow periodic on-site evaluation and subsequent inspection of its facilities. The information collection requirements above are currently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB control numbers 0579–0372 (Importation of Ovine Meat From Uruguay), 0579–0414 (Importation of Beef From a Region in VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Mar 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 Brazil), and 0579–0428 (Importation of Beef From a Region in Argentina). After OMB approves this combined information collection package (0579– 0372), APHIS will retire OMB control numbers 0579–0414 and 0579–0428. Lastly, as a result of the merging of these information collection activities, APHIS has revised the name of this information collection from ‘‘Importation of Ovine Meat From Uruguay’’ to ‘‘Importation of Beef and Ovine Meat From Uruguay and Beef From Argentina and Brazil.’’ We are asking the 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 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 0.99 hours per response. Respondents: Authorized veterinary officials employed by the Governments of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay and managers of foreign facilities that process meat and meat products. Estimated annual number of respondents: 8. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1,861. Estimated annual number of responses: 14,888. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 14,755 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.
