Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 125 / Thursday, June 28, 2018 / Notices amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 cane sugar exempt from the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for the raw cane sugar imports and related requirements on the condition that an equivalent quantity of refined sugar be: (1) Exported as refined sugar; (2) exported as an ingredient in sugar containing products; or (3) used in production of certain polyhydric alcohols. The information requirements set forth in the regulation are necessary to enable FAS to administer the licensing program in full compliance with the regulation and to ensure that licensed imports do not enter the commercial sugar market in circumvention of the TRQ for raw cane sugar. Need and Use of the Information: FAS will collect information to verify that the world-priced sugar is actually exported and not diverted onto the domestic market, thereby undermining the objectives of politically sensitive U.S. sugar policies. This collection enables USDA to monitor participants in an effort to ensure compliance with program parameters. Without the collection, there would be increased opportunity to divert sugar onto the domestic market. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit. Number of Respondents: 325. Frequency of Responses: Recordkeeping; Reporting; Quarterly. Total Burden Hours: 414. Foreign Agricultural Service Title: Specialty Sugar Certificate Application. OMB Control Number: 0551–0025. Summary of Collection: The collect of information is necessary to fulfill the legal obligations of the regulation at 15 CFR 2011 subpart B to issue specialty sugar certificates, letters to importers signed by the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) Certifying Authority, and ensuring that U.S. importers comply with the program’s requirements. The regulation sets forth the terms and conditions under which the Certifying Authority in FAS issues certificates to importers allowing them to enter specialty sugars under the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for refined sugar. Need and Use of the Information: The collected information will be used to: (1) Determine whether applicants for the program meet the regulation’s eligibility criteria; (2) ensure that sugar to be imported is specialty sugar and meets the requirements of the regulation; (3) audit participants’ compliance with the regulation; and (4) prevent entry of world-priced program sugar from entering the domestic commercial market instead of domestic specialty sugar market. The Certifying Authority VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Jun 27, 2018 Jkt 244001 needs the information to manage, plan, evaluate, and account for program activities. Less frequent collection or no collection would impede administration of the specialty sugar certificate program and reduce or eliminate imports essential to U.S. organic food and beverages processors. Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit. Number of Respondents: 60. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually. Total Burden Hours: 66. 30399 [FR Doc. 2018–13889 Filed 6–27–18; 8:45 am] Instructions: All submissions submitted by mail or electronic mail must include the Agency name and OMB Control Number.
