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. Regulations authorized by the PPA concerning the importation of fruits and vegetables into the United States from certain parts of the world are contained in ‘‘Subpart— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–82). In accordance with § 319.56–60, mangoes from Australia are subject to certain conditions before entering the continental United States to ensure that plant pests are not introduced into the United States. The regulations require information collection activities that include inspections, emergency action notification, notice of arrival, recordkeeping, and the inspection of the production site by the national plant protection organization (NPPO) of Australia. In addition, each shipment of mangoes must be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate issued by the NPPO of Australia with an additional declaration stating that the mangoes were inspected prior to export and found free of certain pests and treated in accordance with the regulations. 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. APHIS needs this outside input to help accomplish the following: (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, (such as through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.) PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21999 Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.634 hours per response.

Estimated annual number of responses: 257. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 163 hours.
