SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 12, 2016, we published in the Federal Register (81 FR 53398–53399) a notice 1 of intent to prepare a programmatic environmental impact statement (EIS) to analyze and examine the environmental effects of control alternatives available to the agency, including a no action alternative, for the Fruit Fly Cooperative Control Program. The notice solicited comments from the public for additional alternatives and environmental impacts that should be examined further in the EIS. We invited comments through September 26, 2016, and received seven comments during the 45-day comment period. On April 27, 2018, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice of availability for the draft EIS in the Federal Register (83 FR 18554). APHIS made the draft EIS available and invited public comment through June 11, 2018. Our responses to the two comments received are in the final EIS. On November 16, 2018, the EPA published a notice of availability of the final EIS in the Federal Register (83 FR 57726). APHIS published the final EIS with a review period of 30 days ending December 17, 2018. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) implementing regulations in 40 CFR 1506.10 require a minimum 30day waiting period between the time a final EIS is published and the time an agency makes a decision on an action 1 The notices, comments, draft and final EIS, record of decision, and supporting documents for this docket can be viewed at http:// www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=APHIS2016-0031.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Certificates of Medical Examination. OMB Control Number: 0583–0167. Expiration Date: 1/31/2022. Type of Request: Revision of an approved information collection. Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53) as specified in the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (21 U.S.C. 451, et seq.) and the Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These statutes mandate that FSIS protect the public by verifying that meat, poultry, and egg products are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled and packaged. FSIS is requesting revision of the approved information collection regarding certificates of medical examination, by adding two new medical examination forms to the collection. The Agency has increased the burden estimate by 59 hours due to the addition of these forms for completion by health care providers. FSIS employees will ask their health care providers to complete FSIS Form 4306–5, ‘‘Medical Documentation for Employee’s Reasonable Accommodation Request,’’ if they apply for a reasonable accommodation, and FSIS Form 4630– 8, ‘‘Confidential Medical Information,’’ if they apply for the FSIS Leave Bank Program. The approval for this information collection will expire on January 31, 2022. The current information collection approval includes FSIS Form 4339–1, ‘‘Certificate of Medical Examination (with Medical History).’’ FSIS uses this form to determine whether an applicant for a Food Inspector, Consumer Safety Inspector, or Veterinary Medical Officer in-plant position meets the medical qualification standards for the position approved by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The certificates of medical examination ensure accurate collection of the required data. The OPM-approved medical qualification standards apply only to positions in FSIS, not positions in other Federal agencies. When requesting that applicants for the positions listed above undergo the medical examination, a representative of FSIS notifies the applicants in writing of the reasons for the examination, the process, and the consequences of the failure to report for an examination or provide medical documentation. Any physical condition that would hinder an individual’s full, efficient, and safe performance of his or her duties is considered disqualifying for employment, except when the individual presents convincing evidence that he or she can perform the essential functions of the job efficiently and without hazard. In addition to the FSIS Form 4339–1, FSIS is adding two new medical examination forms for completion by health care providers to the information collection. First, FSIS will use the FSIS Form 4306–5, ‘‘Medical Documentation for Employee’s Reasonable E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1
