Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (Act; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) makes it unlawful to import or export fish, wildlife, or plants without filing a ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1 1198 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 22 / Friday, February 1, 2019 / Notices declaration or report deemed necessary for enforcing the Act or upholding the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) (see 16 U.S.C. 1538(e)). With a few exceptions, businesses, individuals, or government agencies importing into or exporting from the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife product must complete and submit to the Service an FWS Form 3–177 (Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife). This form, as well as FWS Form 3–177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions for completion, are available for electronic submission at https://edecs.fws.gov. These forms are also available in fillable format at http:// www.fws.gov/forms/. The information that we collect is unique to each wildlife shipment and enables us to: • Accurately inspect the contents of the shipment; • Enforce any regulations that pertain to the fish, wildlife, or wildlife products contained in the shipment; and • Maintain records of the importation and exportation of these commodities. Businesses or individuals must file FWS Forms 3–177 and 3–177a with us at the time when and at the port where they request clearance of the import or export of wildlife or wildlife products. Our regulations allow certain species of wildlife to be imported or exported between the United States and Canada or Mexico at U.S. Customs and Border Protection ports, even though our wildlife inspectors may not be present. In these instances, importers and exporters may file the forms with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. We collect the following information: (1) Name of the importer or exporter and broker. (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife. (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required). (4) Description, quantity, and value of the fish or wildlife. (5) Natural country of origin of the fish or wildlife. In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill of lading number, the location of the shipment containing the fish or wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical examination of the shipment is necessary. In 2009, we implemented a new user fee system intended to recover the costs of the compliance portion of the wildlife inspection program. Since that time, we have been made aware that we may have placed an undue economic burden on businesses that exclusively trade in small volumes of low-value, nonfederally protected wildlife parts and products. To address this issue, we implemented a program that exempts certain businesses from the designated port base inspection fees as an interim measure while we reassess the current user fee system. Businesses that possess a valid Service import/export license may request to participate in the fee exemption program through our electronic filing system (eDecs). Qualified licensees must create an eDecs filer account as an importer or exporter, if they do not already have one, and file their required documents electronically. To be an approved participating business in the program and receive an exemption from the designated port base inspection fee, the licensed business must certify that it will exclusively import or export nonliving wildlife that is not listed as injurious under 50 CFR part 16 and does not require a permit or certificate under 50 CFR parts 15 (Wild Bird Conservation Act), 17 (Endangered Species Act), 18 (Marine Mammal Protection Act), 20 and 21 (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), 22 (Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act), or 23 (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). The requesting business also must certify that it will exclusively import or export the above types of wildlife shipments where the quantity in each shipment of wildlife parts or products is 25 or fewer and the total value of each wildlife shipment is $5,000 or less. Any licensed business that has more than two wildlife Annual number of respondents Requirement shipments that were refused clearance in the 5 years prior to its request is not eligible for the program. In addition, any licensees that have been assessed a civil penalty, issued a notice of violation, or convicted of a misdemeanor or felony violation involving wildlife import or export will not be eligible to participate in the program. We are also requesting OMB’s continued approval for electronic collection of data through U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as an alternative electronic option for importers and exporters to eDecs. The Safe Port Act requires the Service to participate in the International Trade Data System, and the Executive Order on Streamlining Exports and Imports establishes ACE as the primary means for collection of international trade data by the government. The latter includes the use of Census’s Automated Export System (AES) to collect agency licenses and other permissions for exports. Although the Service does not mandate importers or exporters to use ACE and AES to file Service data at this time, we will begin collection of data in ACE as an alternative to eDecs. If importers file in ACE, they will not file in eDecs. Title of Collection: Declaration for Importation or Exportation of Fish or Wildlife, 50 CFR 14.61–14.64 and 14.94(k)(4).

the United States any fish, wildlife, or wildlife product must complete

FWS Form 3-177a (Continuation Sheet) and instructions for completion,

information:

    (2) Scientific and common name of the fish or wildlife.
    (3) Permit numbers (if permits are required).
    (4) Description, quantity, and value of the fish or wildlife.
    (5) Natural country of origin of the fish or wildlife.
    In addition, certain information, such as the airway bill or bill 
of lading number, the location of the shipment containing the fish or 
wildlife for inspection, and the number of cartons containing fish or 
wildlife, assists our wildlife inspectors if a physical examination of 
the shipment is necessary.
    In 2009, we implemented a new user fee system intended to recover 
the costs of the compliance portion of the wildlife inspection program. 
Since that time, we have been made aware that we may have placed an 
undue economic burden on businesses that exclusively trade in small 
volumes of low-value, non-federally protected wildlife parts and 
products. To address this issue, we implemented a program that exempts 
certain businesses from the designated port base inspection fees as an 
interim measure while we reassess the current user fee system. 
Businesses that possess a valid Service import/export license may 
request to participate in the fee exemption program through our 
electronic filing system (eDecs). Qualified licensees must create an 
eDecs filer account as an importer or exporter, if they do not already 
have one, and file their required documents electronically.
    To be an approved participating business in the program and receive 
an exemption from the designated port base inspection fee, the licensed 
business must certify that it will exclusively import or export 
nonliving wildlife that is not listed as injurious under 50 CFR part 16 
and does not require a permit or certificate under 50 CFR parts 15 
(Wild Bird Conservation Act), 17 (Endangered Species Act), 18 (Marine 
Mammal Protection Act), 20 and 21 (Migratory Bird Treaty Act), 22 (Bald 
and Golden Eagle Protection Act), or 23 (the Convention on 
International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). The 
requesting business also must certify that it will exclusively import 
or export the above types of wildlife shipments where the quantity in 
each shipment of wildlife parts or products is 25 or fewer and the 
total value of each wildlife shipment is $5,000 or less. Any licensed 
business that has more than two wildlife shipments that were refused 
clearance in the 5 years prior to its request is not eligible for the 
program. In addition, any licensees that have been assessed a civil 
penalty, issued a notice of violation, or convicted of a misdemeanor or 
felony violation involving wildlife import or export will not be 
eligible to participate in the program.
    We are also requesting OMB's continued approval for electronic 
collection of data through U.S. Customs and Border Protection's 
Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as an alternative electronic 
option for importers and exporters to eDecs. The Safe Port Act requires 
the Service to participate in the International Trade Data System, and 
the Executive Order on Streamlining Exports and Imports establishes ACE 
as the primary means for collection of international trade data by the 
government. The latter includes the use of Census's Automated Export 
System (AES) to collect agency licenses and other permissions for 
exports. Although the Service does not mandate importers or exporters 
to use ACE and AES to file Service data at this time, we will begin 
collection of data in ACE as an alternative to eDecs. If importers file 
in ACE, they will not file in eDecs.
