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. 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 0.25 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.) 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. Done in Washington, DC, this 25th day of April 2017. Michael C. Gregoire, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Credit Account Approval for Reimbursable Services.
    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 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. 
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 0.25 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.)
    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.
