SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: National Veterinary Services Laboratories Request Forms. OMB Control Number: 0579–0430. 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.) provides the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to prohibit or restrict, through orders and regulations, the importation or entry of any animal, article, or means of conveyance if the U.S. Department of Agriculture determines that the prohibition or restriction is necessary to prevent the introduction or spread of any pest or disease of livestock within the United States. Disease prevention is the most effective method for maintaining a healthy animal population. As an element of the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) disease prevention mission, the National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) safeguard U.S. animal health by ensuring that timely and accurate laboratory support is provided through a nationwide animal health diagnostic system. NVSL’s work necessitates the use of several information collection activities including requests for reagents or supplies, NVSL contact information updates, and NVSL applications for laboratory training. 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; FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57197 (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 0.25 hours per response. Respondents: Domestic and foreign diagnostic laboratories (Federal, State, university, or private), researchers (academia, private, government), and private veterinary practitioners. Estimated annual number of respondents: 652. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 4. Estimated annual number of responses: 2,800. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 692 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.)

These regulations govern the importation of animals and animal products. APHIS currently places certain restrictions on the importation and intransit movement of fresh (chilled or frozen) pork and pork products from Mexico because of the presence of classical swine fever (CSF) in some areas of Mexico.1 However, the regulations in § 94.15 allow pork and pork products from certain Mexican States to transit the United States, under seal, for export to another country. In addition, the regulations in § 94.6 provide the requirements for, among other things, the importation of poultry carcasses, parts, products, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) from regions where Newcastle disease (ND) is considered to exist. However, § 94.33 allows poultry carcasses, parts, products, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) that do not qualify for entry into the United States to transit the United States via land ports, for immediate export, from Mexican States that Mexico considers to be free of ND. APHIS believes that allowing such in-transit movements presents a negligible risk of introducing ND or CSF into the United States while simultaneously avoiding unnecessary restrictions on trade. APHIS also currently has regulations in place that restrict the importation of poultry meat and other poultry products from Mexico due to the presence of ND in that country.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Importation of Poultry Meat and Other Poultry Products From 
Sinaloa and Sonora, Mexico; Poultry and Pork Transiting the United 
States.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0144.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: The Animal Health Protection Act is the primary Federal 
law governing the protection of animal health. The law gives the 
Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to detect, control, or 
eradicate pests or diseases of livestock or poultry. The Secretary may 
also prohibit or restrict the import or export of any animal or related 
material if necessary to prevent the spread of any livestock or poultry 
pest or disease.
    Disease prevention is the most effective method for maintaining a 
healthy animal population and for enhancing the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), 
Veterinary Services' ability to allow U.S. animal producers to compete 
in the world market of animal and animal product trade. APHIS is the 
agency charged with carrying out disease prevention by regulating the 
importation of animals and animal products into the United States. The 
regulations under which APHIS conducts these disease prevention 
activities are contained in title 9, chapter 1, subchapter D, parts 91 
through 99, of the Code of Federal Regulations. These regulations 
govern the importation of animals and animal products.
    APHIS currently places certain restrictions on the importation and 
in-transit movement of fresh (chilled or frozen) pork and pork products 
from Mexico because of the presence of classical swine fever (CSF) in 
some areas of Mexico.\1\ However, the regulations in Sec.  94.15 allow 
pork and pork products from certain Mexican States to transit the 
United States, under seal, for export to another country.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On August 8, 2017, APHIS published a notice of availability 
of an evaluation of the CSF status of Mexico. The notice, supporting 
documents, and the comment we received may be viewed at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=APHIS-2016-0038.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the regulations in Sec.  94.6 provide the requirements 
for, among other things, the importation of poultry carcasses, parts, 
products, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) from regions where 
Newcastle disease (ND) is considered to exist. However, Sec.  94.33 
allows poultry carcasses, parts, products, and eggs (other than 
hatching eggs) that do not qualify for entry into the United States to 
transit the United States via land ports, for immediate export, from 
Mexican States that Mexico considers to be free of ND. APHIS believes 
that allowing such in-transit movements presents a negligible risk of 
introducing ND or CSF into the United States while simultaneously 
avoiding unnecessary restrictions on trade.
    APHIS also currently has regulations in place that restrict the 
importation of poultry meat and other poultry products from Mexico due 
to the presence of ND in that country. However, under the regulations 
in Sec.  94.30, APHIS allows the importation of poultry meat and 
poultry products from the Mexican States of Sinaloa and Sonora, if 
imported according to APHIS' requirements, because APHIS has determined 
that poultry meat and products from these two Mexican States pose a 
negligible risk of introducing ND into the United States.
    To ensure these items are safe for importation, APHIS requires that 
information collection activities take place such as foreign meat 
inspection certificates, serially numbered seals, applications for 
import permits, emergency action notification, and pre-arrival 
notifications.
    The information collection requirements above are currently 
approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB control 
numbers 0579-0144 (Importation of Poultry Meat and other Poultry 
Products from Sinaloa and Sonora, Mexico) and 0579-0145 (Poultry and 
Pork Products Transiting the United States). After OMB approves this 
combined information collection package (0579-0144), APHIS will retire 
OMB control number 0579-0145.
    In addition, as a result of merging these information collection 
activities, APHIS has revised the title of this information collection 
from ``Importation of Poultry Meat and other Poultry Products from 
Sinaloa and Sonora, Mexico'', to ``Importation of Poultry Meat and 
Other Poultry Products From Sinaloa and Sonora, Mexico; Poultry and 
Pork Transiting the United States.''
    We are asking 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 burden for this collection of 
information is estimated to average 0.9 hours per response.
    Respondents: Federal animal health authorities in Mexico and U.S. 
importers and exporters of poultry meat,

[[Page 57199]]

other poultry products, pork, and pork products from Mexico.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 400.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 1.40.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 562.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 558 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.
