OMB Control Number: 0579–0387. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. As authorized by the PPA, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service regulates the importation of fruits and vegetables into the United States from certain parts of the world as provided in ‘‘Subpart— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–80). In accordance with § 319.56–70, fresh litchi and longan fruit from Vietnam may be imported into the continental United States under certain conditions to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. These conditions require the use of certain information collection activities including an application for permit to import plants and plant products, appeal of denial or revocation of permit, emergency action notification, notice of arrival, registration of production sites, labeling of packages, and recordkeeping. Also, each consignment of litchi or longan fruit must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the national plant protection organization (NPPO) of Vietnam with an additional declaration stating that the provisions of § 319.56–70 have been met, and that the consignment was inspected prior to export. In addition, for litchi fruit, the phytosanitary certificate must indicate that the consignment was found free of Phytophthora litchii. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (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; VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:18 Nov 02, 2017 Jkt 244001 (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 burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.019 hours per response. Respondents: Growers and importers of litchi and longan fruit from Vietnam, and the NPPO of Vietnam. Estimated annual number of respondents: 7. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 4,432. Estimated annual number of responses: 31,021. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 574 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 31st day of October 2017. Kevin Shea, Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.
