Request for Nominations, 8287-8288 [2018-03853]

Download as PDF 8287 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 38 / Monday, February 26, 2018 / Notices submitting information to confirm their designations remain appropriate. We use the information to ensure their designations remain appropriate. Description of Respondents: Respondents to this information collection include rendering facilities, feed manufacturers, livestock feeders, and foreign governments seeking designation under § 589.2001(f). In the Federal Register of November 3, 2017 (82 FR 51279), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. We received four comments, which were not responsive to the four collection of information topics solicited, and therefore will not be discussed in this document. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL RECORDKEEPING BURDEN 1 Number of recordkeepers 21 CFR section Number of records per recordkeeper Average burden per recordkeeping Total annual records Total hours 589.2001(c)(2)(ii), maintain written procedures ................. 589.2001(c)(2)(vi) and (c)(3)(i), maintain records ............. 589.2001(c)(3)(i)(A) and (B), certification or documentation from the supplier ..................................................... 50 175 1 1 50 175 20 20 1,000 3,500 175 1 175 26 4,550 Total ............................................................................ .......................... ........................ ........................ ........................ 9,050 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. Except where otherwise noted, this estimate is based on our estimate of the number of facilities affected by the final rule entitled ‘‘Substances Prohibited From Use in Animal Food or Feed’’ published in the Federal Register of April 25, 2008 (73 FR 22720 at 22753). The estimated recordkeeping burden is derived from Agency resources and discussions with affected industry. Our regulations require the maintenance of certain written procedures if cattle not inspected and passed for human consumption are to be rendered for use in animal feed. The recordkeeping burden associated with the requirement to maintain written procedures (§ 589.2001(c)(2)(ii)) will apply to only those renderers that choose to render for use in animal feed cattle not inspected and passed for human consumption. The recordkeeping requirement in § 589.2001(c)(2)(vi) will apply to the limited number of renderers that will handle CMPAF. We estimate that the recordkeeping burden associated with § 589.2001(c)(3)(i) would apply to the balance of the rendering firms not handling CMPAF. Table 1 also reflects the estimated 26 hours each renderer will need to satisfy the requirement in § 589.2001(c)(3)(i)(A) and (B) under which renderers must maintain records from their supplier, certifying that materials provided were free of CMPAF. TABLE 2—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 589.2001(f); request for designation .................................. 589.2001(f); response to request for review by FDA ........ daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 1 There Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents 21 CFR section 1 1 Average burden per response Total annual responses 1 1 1 1 Total hours 80 26 80 26 are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information. Our estimate of the reporting burden for designation under § 589.2001(f) is based on estimates in the final rule entitled ‘‘Substances Prohibited From Use in Animal Food or Feed’’ published in the Federal Register of April 25, 2008, our experience, and the average number of requests for designation received in the past 3 years. The reporting burden for § 589.2001(f) is minimal because requests for designation are seldom submitted. Since 2009, we have received two requests for designation. In the last 3 years, we have not received any new requests for designation; therefore, we estimate that one or fewer requests for designation will be submitted annually. Although we have not received any new requests for designation in the last 3 years, we believe these information collection provisions should be extended to provide for the potential future need of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:58 Feb 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 a foreign government to request designation under § 589.2001(f). Table 2, row 1, presents the expected burden of requests for designation. Countries designated under § 589.2001(f) are subject to review by FDA to ensure that their designation remains appropriate. We assume a country’s response to a request for review will take about one third the time and effort of a request for designation. Table 2, row 2, presents the expected burden of a request for review. The burden for this information collection has not changed since the last OMB approval. Dated: February 21, 2018.
