Abstract: Form CCC–10, ‘‘Representations for Commodity Credit Corporation or Farm Service Agency Loans and Authorization to File a Financing Statement and Related Documents’’ is necessary to: (a) Gather or verify basic data, provided by a CCC or FSA loan applicant, that is required on a financing statement filed by CCC or FSA to perfect a security interest in collateral used to secure a loan; and (b) Obtain applicant permission to file a financing statement prior to the execution of a security agreement. FSA’s Farm Loan Programs (FLP) uses the CCC–10 when a nonapplicant third party pledges the full value of chattel security to FSA as adequate security required for an FLP loan. Both CCC’s Marketing Assistance Loan and Farm Storage Facility Loan programs also use the CCC–10, but are exempt from the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act according to the Agricultural Act of 2014 (Pub. L. 113–79, Title I, Subtitle F— Administration). FSA is increasing the number of respondents by 360, since the last request. The burden hours will decrease by 2,088 hours due to not needing to account for the travel time in the burden hours. For the following estimated total annual burden on respondents, the formula used to calculate the total burden hours is the estimated average time per response multiplied by the estimated total annual of responses. Estimated Annual Burden: The public reporting burden for this information collection is estimated to average 5 minutes per response (0.083 of an hours).

    FSA is increasing the number of respondents by 360, since the last 
request. The burden hours will decrease by 2,088 hours due to not 
needing to account for the travel time in the burden hours.
    For the following estimated total annual burden on respondents, the 
formula used to calculate the total burden hours is the estimated 
average time per response multiplied by the estimated total annual of 
responses.

information collection is estimated to average 5 minutes per response 
(0.083 of an hours).

collection to help us to:

necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
