SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Importation of Ruminant and Swine Hides, Bird Trophies, and Deer Hides. OMB Control Number: 0579–0307. Type of Request: Reinstatement of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to prohibit or restrict the importation and interstate movement of animals and animal products to prevent the introduction into and dissemination within the United States of livestock diseases and pests. To carry out this mission, APHIS regulates the importation of animals and animal products into the United States. The regulations are contained in title 9, parts 91 through 99, of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The regulations in 9 CFR part 95 (referred to below as the regulations) prohibit or restrict the importation of specified animal products into the asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Apr 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 United States to prevent the introduction into the U.S. livestock population of certain contagious animal diseases. Sections 95.16 and 95.17 of the regulations contain, among other things, specific processing, recordkeeping, and certification requirements for untanned hides and skins and bird trophies. The regulations require that shipments of hides be accompanied by certificates showing their origin and certifying that the hides are from areas free of certain animal diseases. Shipments of ruminant hides from Mexico must be accompanied by written statements indicating that the hides were frozen for 24 hours and treated for ticks. Shipments of bird trophies must be accompanied by certificates of origin certifying that the trophies are from regions free of exotic Newcastle disease and highly pathogenic avian influenza. These activities help ensure that the products do not harbor disease or ticks. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for 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 0.2 hours per response. Respondents: National government officials of the exporting country, owners of untanned ruminant and swine hides, and importers of untanned ruminant and swine hides. Estimated number of respondents: 264. Estimated number of responses per respondent: 2.59. Estimated annual number of responses: 683. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 137 hours. (Due to PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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.

OMB Control Number: 0579–0055. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) provides the services of a Federal inspector to clear imported and exported agricultural commodities for animal and plant health purposes. These services are paid for by user fees during regular working hours. If an importer wishes to have shipments cleared at other hours, such services will usually be provided on a reimbursable overtime basis, unless already covered by a user fee. Exporters wishing cargo to be certified during nonworking hours may also utilize this procedure. Many importers and exporters who require inspection services are repeat customers who request that APHIS bill them. The Agency needs to collect certain information to conduct a credit check on prospective applicants to ensure creditworthiness prior to extending credit services and to prepare billings. Also, the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996, as amended (31 U.S.C. 3332), requires that agencies collect tax identification numbers from all persons doing business with the Government for purposes of collecting delinquent debts. APHIS Form 192 (Application for Credit Account) is used to collect this information and must be completed before credit is extended. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of this information PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 19655 collection activity 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.

Estimate of Burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.25 hours per response. Respondents: Importers, exporters, or brokers who wish to set up an account for billing of inspection services provided during nonworking hours. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 261. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Annual Number of Responses: 261. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 65 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.)
