SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Tuberculosis. OMB Control Number: 0579–0146. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to prohibit or restrict the interstate movement of animals and animal products to prevent the dissemination within the United States of animal diseases and pests, and for conducting programs to detect, control, and eradicate pests and diseases of livestock. As part of this mission, APHIS participates in a national cooperative State/Federal tuberculosis eradication program to eliminate bovine tuberculosis in cattle, bison, and captive cervids from the United States. This program is conducted under various States’ authorities supplemented by Federal authorities regulating the interstate movement of affected animals. The tuberculosis regulations contained in 9 CFR part 77 provide for several levels of State tuberculosis risk classifications, the creation of tuberculosis risk status zones within the same State, and the testing of regulated animals before they are permitted to move interstate. The requirements for establishing zones and testing regulated animals enhance the effectiveness of APHIS’ tuberculosis eradication program by decreasing the likelihood that infected animals will be moved interstate or internationally, thus preventing the spread of tuberculosis. The requirements also provide mechanisms to help APHIS’ Veterinary Services trace, locate, and eradicate regulated animals when outbreaks occur. These regulations include information collection activities such as memoranda of understanding for zone recognition; epidemiological reviews; permits for movement of restricted animals; certificates for animals moved interstate; retention of movement certificates; tuberculosis management plans; accredited herd plans; approved herd plans; test records and results; affected herd data and herd testing results; wildlife risk surveys; monthly reports of tuberculosis eradication; reports of tuberculosis lesions; specimen submissions and collections; submissions by States of requests to APHIS for State or zone status; submissions by States of an annual VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:42 Aug 02, 2019 Jkt 247001 report to APHIS for renewal of State or zone status; commuter herd agreements; depopulation and repopulation agreements; extension requests; tuberculosis infected herd field reports; investigations for evidence of tuberculosis; appraisals and indemnity claims; records of proceeds from animals sold to slaughter; owner participation in new tuberculosis tests; recordkeeping for approved feedlots; and application of shipping labels. These activities enhance the APHIS’ ability to allow U.S. animal producers to manage bovine and captive cervid tuberculosis and compete in the world market of animal and animal product trade. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. 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., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.31 hours per response. Respondents: State animal health officials, producers and owners (including feedlot owners), accredited veterinarians, professional appraisers, and laboratory technicians. Estimated annual number of respondents: 4,914. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 18. Estimated annual number of responses: 89,325. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 27,830 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.)

(Flexible Packaging), Shelbyville, Kentucky Amcor Flexibles L.L.C. (Amcor) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Shelbyville, Kentucky. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on July 29, 2019. Amcor already has authority to produce flexible packaging within FTZ 29. The current request would add one finished product and one foreign status material/component to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status material/component and specific finished product described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Amcor from customs duty payments on the foreign-status material/ component used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreignstatus material/component noted below and in the existing scope of authority, Amcor would be able to choose the duty rates during customs entry procedures that apply to finished die cut lids (duty rate 2.6%). Amcor would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The material/component sourced from abroad is laminated aluminum foil (duty rate 3.0%). The request indicates that the material/component is subject to special duties under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 (Section 232). The applicable Section E:\FR\FM\05AUN1.SGM 05AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Title: Tuberculosis.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0146.
    Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an 
information collection.
    Abstract: Under the Animal Health Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et 
seq.), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture is authorized, among other things, to 
prohibit or restrict the interstate movement of animals and animal 
products to prevent the dissemination within the United States of 
animal diseases and pests, and for conducting programs to detect, 
control, and eradicate pests and diseases of livestock. As part of this 
mission, APHIS participates in a national cooperative State/Federal 
tuberculosis eradication program to eliminate bovine tuberculosis in 
cattle, bison, and captive cervids from the United States. This program 
is conducted under various States' authorities supplemented by Federal 
authorities regulating the interstate movement of affected animals.
    The tuberculosis regulations contained in 9 CFR part 77 provide for 
several levels of State tuberculosis risk classifications, the creation 
of tuberculosis risk status zones within the same State, and the 
testing of regulated animals before they are permitted to move 
interstate. The requirements for establishing zones and testing 
regulated animals enhance the effectiveness of APHIS' tuberculosis 
eradication program by decreasing the likelihood that infected animals 
will be moved interstate or internationally, thus preventing the spread 
of tuberculosis. The requirements also provide mechanisms to help 
APHIS' Veterinary Services trace, locate, and eradicate regulated 
animals when outbreaks occur.
    These regulations include information collection activities such as 
memoranda of understanding for zone recognition; epidemiological 
reviews; permits for movement of restricted animals; certificates for 
animals moved interstate; retention of movement certificates; 
tuberculosis management plans; accredited herd plans; approved herd 
plans; test records and results; affected herd data and herd testing 
results; wildlife risk surveys; monthly reports of tuberculosis 
eradication; reports of tuberculosis lesions; specimen submissions and 
collections; submissions by States of requests to APHIS for State or 
zone status; submissions by States of an annual report to APHIS for 
renewal of State or zone status; commuter herd agreements; depopulation 
and repopulation agreements; extension requests; tuberculosis infected 
herd field reports; investigations for evidence of tuberculosis; 
appraisals and indemnity claims; records of proceeds from animals sold 
to slaughter; owner participation in new tuberculosis tests; 
recordkeeping for approved feedlots; and application of shipping 
labels. These activities enhance the APHIS' ability to allow U.S. 
animal producers to manage bovine and captive cervid tuberculosis and 
compete in the world market of animal and animal product trade.
    We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve 
our use of these information collection activities, as described, for 
an additional 3 years.
    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., 
permitting electronic submission of responses.
    Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection 
of information is estimated to average 0.31 hours per response.
    Respondents: State animal health officials, producers and owners 
(including feedlot owners), accredited veterinarians, professional 
appraisers, and laboratory technicians.
    Estimated annual number of respondents: 4,914.
    Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 18.
    Estimated annual number of responses: 89,325.
    Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 27,830 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.)
    All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.

    Done in Washington, DC, this 30th day of July 2019.
