When reviewing nominations, NMFS, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, will consider the following six criteria: (1) Ability to make time available for the purposes of the SRG; (2) Knowledge of the species (or closely related species) of marine mammals in the SRG’s region; (3) Scientific or technical achievement in a relevant discipline, particularly the areas of expertise identified above, to be considered an expert peer reviewer for the topic; (4) Demonstrated experience working effectively on teams; (5) Expertise relevant to current and expected needs of the SRG, in particular, expertise required to provide adequate review and knowledgeable feedback on current or developing stock assessment issues, techniques, etc. In practice, this means that each member should have expertise in more than one topic as the species and scientific issues discussed in SRG meetings are diverse; and (6) No conflict of interest with respect to their duties as a member of the SRG. Next Steps Following review, nominees who are identified by NMFS as potential new members must be vetted and cleared in accordance with Department of Commerce policy. NMFS will contact these individuals and ask them to provide written confirmation that they are not registered Federal lobbyists or registered foreign agents, and to complete a confidential financial disclosure form, which will be reviewed by the Ethics Law and Programs Division within the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Office of General Counsel. All nominees will be notified of a selection decision in advance of the 2020 SRG meetings. Dated: August 14, 2019. Cathryn E. Tortorici, Acting Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.

Needs and Uses: Pursuant to domestic statutory authorities and/or multilateral agreements, NMFS has implemented a number of trade monitoring programs to collect information from the seafood industry regarding the origin of certain fishery products. The purpose of these programs is to determine the admissibility of the products in accordance with the specific criteria of the trade measure or documentation requirements in effect for the species of fish that are being imported or exported. The Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act, Pub. L. 109–347) requires all Federal agencies with a role in import admissibility decisions to collect information electronically through the International Trade Data System (ITDS). U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) developed the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) as an internet-based system for the collection and dissemination of information for ITDS. NMFS works with CBP to designate certain codes from the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States as requiring additional information when an entry is electronically filed in ACE. That information (harvesting vessel, ocean area of catch, fishing gear, date and port of landing, etc.) is used by NMFS to determine that the fish products in the shipment were lawfully acquired, properly labeled and are admissible into U.S. commerce. Trade permits are issued by NMFS to importers and exporters of the designated fish species so that the import/export documentation requirements can be communicated to the trade community and to provide a point of contact when shipment documentation problems are encountered at the border. Electronic reporting of trade data has been approved by OMB under three separate information collections: 0648– PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 0732, 0648–0739 and 0648–0776.

Affected Public: Importers and exporters of seafood subject to catch documentation requirements. Frequency: Annual trade permits; electronic reports upon import/export; provision of supply chain documents when selected for audit. Respondent’s Obligation: Affected importers and exporters must obtain an annual trade permit from NMFS. An electronic message set specific to NMFS must be filed electronically in ACE upon import/export of fish species subject to documentation requirements. When imports are selected for audit, the importer must furnish supply-chain records to NMFS for examination. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov.
