SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Overview of This Information Collection Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS). Title: Cranberries grown in States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Long Island in the State of New York; Marketing Order No. 929. OMB Number: 0581–NEW. Type of Request: New Information Collection. Abstract: The information requirements in this request are essential to carry out the intent of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937, as amended (7 U.S.C. 601–674), hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘Act’’, to provide the respondents the type of service they request, and to administer the cranberry marketing order program. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is responsible for overseeing Marketing Agreement and Order No. 929, as amended (7 CFR part 929), regulating the handling of cranberries grown in the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Long Island in the State of New York, hereinafter referred to as the ‘‘order.’’ The order is effective under the Act. On August 31, 2017, the Cranberry Marketing Committee (Committee) recommended establishing a handler withhold volume regulation for the 2017–18 season in response to historically high inventory levels for cranberries. Following the recommendation for the handler withhold, the Committee developed the forms necessary to effectively carry out the handler withhold. Given that the industry has begun harvesting the 2017– 18 crop, these forms need to be effective immediately. On September 15, 2017, the Committee unanimously recommended that cranberry handlers covered under the order provide the Committee with a report indicating the anticipated total quantity of cranberries acquired by the handler, the amount withheld from handling, and the disposition of such E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 194 / Tuesday, October 10, 2017 / Notices withheld cranberries during the crop year. This form, titled ‘‘Handler Withholding Report,’’ will be submitted directly to the Committee by handlers by June 1, 2018. This report will give the Committee background data on how each handler plans to meet the requirements of the handler withhold volume regulation. The Committee also recommended that handlers covered under the order submit a report certifying whenever a disposal of withheld cranberries is made. This report will contain information regarding the volume, the form of disposed cranberries, and information on the container type. This form, titled ‘‘Handler Disposal Certification,’’ will be submitted directly to the Committee by handlers following each disposal activity. This information collection provides the Committee with data regarding the amount of cranberries diverted and the information needed to help track handler compliance with the recommended handler withhold. The Committee also recommended that handlers provide the Committee with a record of withheld cranberries disposed of in non-commercial outlets. This form, titled ‘‘Handler Application for Outlets for Withheld Fruit,’’ will be submitted directly to the Committee by handlers to provide information regarding the type, form, and volume of cranberries disposed of in noncompetitive outlets. Handlers will submit this form prior to each disposal activity of this type to provide the Committee with the opportunity to review and approve the requested outlet. This information collection provides the Committee with information on the noncompetitive outlets used to meet the requirements for withheld cranberries, and is necessary for the Committee to track compliance with the recommended handler withhold. The Committee also recommended that handlers submit a report confirming the third-party receipt of withheld fruit. This form, titled ‘‘Third-Party Confirmation of Receipt of Withheld Fruit,’’ will include certification by outlets receiving withheld cranberries for use in a noncompetitive outlet. This form needs to be filed after each shipment of withheld fruit received by noncompetitive outlets, such as charities. This report contains information on the type, form, and volume of withheld fruit received. This reporting requirement helps track the disposition of withheld cranberries and facilitates compliance with the recommended handler withhold. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Oct 06, 2017 Jkt 244001 The Committee also recommended establishing a form for handlers to use to appeal any denial of a request made for disposing of cranberries in a noncompetitive outlet. This form, titled ‘‘Handler Withholding Appeal,’’ will need to be submitted by the handler making the appeal within 30 days of the denial. This form will include information on why the handler is making the appeal and what additional information is being provided. The order authorizes the Committee to collect certain information as required. The information collected will only be used by authorized representatives of the USDA, including the AMS Specialty Crops Program regional and headquarters staff, and authorized employees of the Committee. All proprietary information will be kept confidential in accordance with the Act and the order. The Committee developed these forms to effectively carry out a handler withhold volume regulation for the 2017–18 season. The purpose of these forms will be to ensure compliance with the recommended handler withhold. Upon OMB approval of the new forms and the information collection package, AMS will request OMB approval to merge the new forms and this information collection in the currently approved information collection OMB control number 0581–0189, Fruit Crops.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Overview of This Information Collection

    Agency: Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS).
    Title: Cranberries grown in States of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, 
Washington, and Long Island in the State of New York; Marketing Order 
No. 929.
    OMB Number: 0581-NEW.
    Type of Request: New Information Collection.
    Abstract: The information requirements in this request are 
essential to carry out the intent of the Agricultural Marketing 
Agreement Act of 1937, as amended (7 U.S.C. 601-674), hereinafter 
referred to as the ``Act'', to provide the respondents the type of 
service they request, and to administer the cranberry marketing order 
program. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is 
responsible for overseeing Marketing Agreement and Order No. 929, as 
amended (7 CFR part 929), regulating the handling of cranberries grown 
in the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, 
Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Long Island in 
the State of New York, hereinafter referred to as the ``order.'' The 
order is effective under the Act.
    On August 31, 2017, the Cranberry Marketing Committee (Committee) 
recommended establishing a handler withhold volume regulation for the 
2017-18 season in response to historically high inventory levels for 
cranberries. Following the recommendation for the handler withhold, the 
Committee developed the forms necessary to effectively carry out the 
handler withhold. Given that the industry has begun harvesting the 
2017-18 crop, these forms need to be effective immediately.
    On September 15, 2017, the Committee unanimously recommended that 
cranberry handlers covered under the order provide the Committee with a 
report indicating the anticipated total quantity of cranberries 
acquired by the handler, the amount withheld from handling, and the 
disposition of such

[[Page 46955]]

withheld cranberries during the crop year. This form, titled ``Handler 
Withholding Report,'' will be submitted directly to the Committee by 
handlers by June 1, 2018. This report will give the Committee 
background data on how each handler plans to meet the requirements of 
the handler withhold volume regulation.
    The Committee also recommended that handlers covered under the 
order submit a report certifying whenever a disposal of withheld 
cranberries is made. This report will contain information regarding the 
volume, the form of disposed cranberries, and information on the 
container type. This form, titled ``Handler Disposal Certification,'' 
will be submitted directly to the Committee by handlers following each 
disposal activity. This information collection provides the Committee 
with data regarding the amount of cranberries diverted and the 
information needed to help track handler compliance with the 
recommended handler withhold.
    The Committee also recommended that handlers provide the Committee 
with a record of withheld cranberries disposed of in non-commercial 
outlets. This form, titled ``Handler Application for Outlets for 
Withheld Fruit,'' will be submitted directly to the Committee by 
handlers to provide information regarding the type, form, and volume of 
cranberries disposed of in noncompetitive outlets. Handlers will submit 
this form prior to each disposal activity of this type to provide the 
Committee with the opportunity to review and approve the requested 
outlet. This information collection provides the Committee with 
information on the noncompetitive outlets used to meet the requirements 
for withheld cranberries, and is necessary for the Committee to track 
compliance with the recommended handler withhold.
    The Committee also recommended that handlers submit a report 
confirming the third-party receipt of withheld fruit. This form, titled 
``Third-Party Confirmation of Receipt of Withheld Fruit,'' will include 
certification by outlets receiving withheld cranberries for use in a 
noncompetitive outlet. This form needs to be filed after each shipment 
of withheld fruit received by noncompetitive outlets, such as 
charities. This report contains information on the type, form, and 
volume of withheld fruit received. This reporting requirement helps 
track the disposition of withheld cranberries and facilitates 
compliance with the recommended handler withhold.
    The Committee also recommended establishing a form for handlers to 
use to appeal any denial of a request made for disposing of cranberries 
in a noncompetitive outlet. This form, titled ``Handler Withholding 
Appeal,'' will need to be submitted by the handler making the appeal 
within 30 days of the denial. This form will include information on why 
the handler is making the appeal and what additional information is 
being provided.
    The order authorizes the Committee to collect certain information 
as required. The information collected will only be used by authorized 
representatives of the USDA, including the AMS Specialty Crops Program 
regional and headquarters staff, and authorized employees of the 
Committee. All proprietary information will be kept confidential in 
accordance with the Act and the order.
    The Committee developed these forms to effectively carry out a 
handler withhold volume regulation for the 2017-18 season. The purpose 
of these forms will be to ensure compliance with the recommended 
handler withhold.
    Upon OMB approval of the new forms and the information collection 
package, AMS will request OMB approval to merge the new forms and this 
information collection in the currently approved information collection 
OMB control number 0581-0189, Fruit Crops.
