It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. We are soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the Service; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Service enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Service minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. We will include or summarize each comment in our request to OMB to approve this ICR.

Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) (16 U.S.C. 703 et seq.) prohibits the unauthorized take of migratory birds and authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to regulate take of migratory birds in the United States. Under this authority, we control the hunting of migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the United States. Regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. Additionally, for law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 application for approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the application to decide whether to approve a material as nontoxic. Title of Collection: Approval Procedures for Nontoxic Shot and Shot Coatings (50 CFR 20.134). OMB Control Number: 1018–0067. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Businesses that produce and/or market approved nontoxic shot types or nontoxic shot coatings. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 1. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 3,200 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,200 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $26,630 ($1,630 application processing fee and $25,000 for solubility testing). An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Dated: May 24, 2019.
