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 L— Fruits and Vegetables’’ (7 CFR 319.56– 1 through 319.56–12). In accordance with the regulations, baby corn and baby carrots from Zambia are subject to certain conditions before entering the continental United States to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States. The regulations amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Feb 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 include requirements for the issuance of a phytosanitary certificate by the national plant protection organization (NPPO) of Zambia stating that the commodity was inspected and found free of the listed pest(s). In addition, there are activities associated with inspection of production sites and emergency action notifications.

Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 5. Estimated annual number of responses: 15. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 17 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.)

    Title: Agriculture Select Agent Services; Import and Transport 
Permits for Non-Select Materials.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0213.
    Type of Request: Reinstatement of an information collection.
    Abstract: The Animal Health Protection Act (the Act, 7 U.S.C. 8301 
et seq.) authorizes the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to 
provide for the oversight of the importation, entry, and movement in 
the United States of animals, pests or diseases, or any material or 
tangible object that could harbor them. Under the Act, USDA regulates 
certain organisms, biological agents, toxins, vectors, and animal 
products that have the potential to pose a severe threat to animal 
health or to animal products through the risk of disease or pest 
introduction.
    The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has the 
primary responsibility for implementing the provisions of the Act 
within USDA. APHIS regulations for these activities are contained in 9 
CFR part 94 (animals or animal products), 9 CFR part 95 (animal 
byproducts) and 9 CFR part 122 (organisms and vectors). The regulations 
require an individual or entity, unless specifically exempted under the 
regulations, to apply for and be granted, by APHIS, a permit 
authorizing specific import or transport activities for regulated 
materials prior to engaging in the activities.
    APHIS has revised the name of this information collection from 
``Select Agent Registration'' to ``Agriculture Select Agent Services; 
Import and Transport Permits for Non-Select Materials.''
    The information collection activities associated with the 
regulation of select agents and toxins, a related activity, are 
included in Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number 0920-
0576. In addition to maintaining approval of OMB control number 0920-
0576, we are asking OMB to approve our use of these information 
collection activities, as described, for the non-select agent aspects 
of the program for 3 years under 0579-0213.
    The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public 
(as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. 
These comments will help us:
    (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, through use, as appropriate, of automated, 
electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g.,
