The appendices, which contained the model Certificate of Independence and model Certificate of Compliance (items (K) and (L), respectively, on the table above), were eliminated as part of recent changes made by OGE to the Executive Branch Financial Disclosure, Qualified Trusts, and Certificates of Divestiture regulation at 5 CFR part 2634. The changes went into effect on January 1, 2019. The information previously found in Appendix B is available on www.oge.gov. Second, OGE proposes removing all references to facsimile as the best means of communication and replacing it with email. Third, with regard to the model communications (item (A) in the table above), OGE proposes to update the dates in the sample documents to make them more contemporary. Fourth, OGE proposes to add one sentence to the Privacy Act statements to better notify users of the consequences of not providing the requested information. Fifth, OGE proposes to make a few minor formatting corrections and to fix a typographical error in the Privacy Act statements. Sixth, OGE proposes to update the Privacy Act statement in accordance with recent changes made to the OGE/ GOVT–1 system of records, covering Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records. The changes were effective on November 8, 2019. On September 25, 2019, OGE published a first round notice of its intent to request approval for the modified model trust certificates and trust documents under the Paperwork Reduction Act. See 84 FR 50449. OGE received no responses to that notice. Request for Comments: Agency and public comment is again invited specifically on the need for and practical utility of this information collection, the accuracy of OGE’s burden estimate, the enhancement of quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected, and the minimization of burden (including the use of information technology). Comments received in response to this notice will be summarized for, and may be included with, the OGE request for extension of OMB approval. The comments will also become a matter of public record.

Reporting Associated With Designated New Animal Drugs for Minor Use and Minor Species—21 CFR Part 516 [FR Doc. 2019–26605 Filed 12–10–19; 8:45 am] OMB Control Number 0910–0605— Extension The Minor Use and Minor Species (MUMS) Act (Pub. L. 108–282) amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to authorize FDA to establish new regulatory procedures intended to make more medications legally available to veterinarians and animal owners for the treatment of minor animal species as well as uncommon diseases in major animal species. This legislation provides incentives designed to help pharmaceutical companies overcome the financial burdens they face in providing limited-demand animal drugs. These incentives are only available to sponsors whose drugs are ‘‘MUMS-designated’’ by FDA. Minor use drugs are drugs for use in major species (e.g., cattle, horses, swine, chickens, turkeys, dogs, and cats) that are needed for diseases that occur in only a small number of animals either because they occur infrequently or in limited geographic areas. Minor species are all animals other than the major species (e.g., zoo animals, ornamental fish, parrots, ferrets, and guinea pigs). Some animals of agricultural importance are also minor species. These include animals such as sheep, goats, catfish, and honeybees. Participation in the MUMS program is completely optional for drug sponsors, so the associated reporting only applies to those sponsors who request and are subsequently granted ‘‘MUMS designation.’’ Our regulations in 21 CFR part 516 specify the criteria and procedures for requesting MUMS designation as well as the annual reporting requirements for MUMS designees. Section 516.20 provides requirements on the content and format of a request for MUMS-drug designation; § 516.26 provides requirements for amending MUMS-drug designation; § 516.27 provides for change in sponsorship of MUMS-drug designation; § 516.29 provides for termination of MUMS-drug designation; § 516.30 contains the requirements for annual reports from sponsor(s) of MUMS-designated drugs; and § 516.36 sets forth consequences for insufficient quantities of MUMS-designated drugs. Description of Respondents: The respondents to this information collection are pharmaceutical companies that sponsor new animal drugs.

Reporting Associated With Designated New Animal Drugs for Minor Use and 
Minor Species--21 CFR Part 516

OMB Control Number 0910-0605--Extension

    The Minor Use and Minor Species (MUMS) Act (Pub. L. 108-282) 
amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to authorize FDA to 
establish new regulatory procedures intended to make more medications 
legally available to veterinarians and animal owners for the treatment 
of minor animal species as well as uncommon diseases in major animal 
species. This legislation provides incentives designed to help 
pharmaceutical companies overcome the financial burdens they face in 
providing limited-demand animal drugs. These incentives are only 
available to sponsors whose drugs are ``MUMS-designated'' by FDA. Minor 
use drugs are drugs for use in major species (e.g., cattle, horses, 
swine, chickens, turkeys, dogs, and cats) that are needed for diseases 
that occur in only a small number of animals either because they occur 
infrequently or in limited geographic areas. Minor species are all 
animals other than the major species (e.g., zoo animals, ornamental 
fish, parrots, ferrets, and guinea pigs). Some animals of agricultural 
importance are also minor species. These include animals such as sheep, 
goats, catfish, and honeybees. Participation in the MUMS program is 
completely optional for drug sponsors, so the associated reporting only 
applies to those sponsors who request and are subsequently granted 
``MUMS designation.''
    Our regulations in 21 CFR part 516 specify the criteria and 
procedures for requesting MUMS designation as well as the annual 
reporting requirements for MUMS designees. Section 516.20 provides 
requirements on the content and format of a request for MUMS-drug 
designation; Sec.  516.26 provides requirements for amending MUMS-drug 
designation; Sec.  516.27 provides for change in sponsorship of MUMS-
drug designation; Sec.  516.29 provides for termination of MUMS-drug 
designation; Sec.  516.30 contains the requirements for annual reports 
from sponsor(s) of MUMS-designated drugs; and Sec.  516.36 sets forth 
consequences for insufficient quantities of MUMS-designated drugs.
    Description of Respondents: The respondents to this information 
collection are pharmaceutical companies that sponsor new animal drugs.

published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of

application reporting requirements for similar actions by this same 
segment of the regulated industry and from previous interactions with 
the minor use/minor species community, and has not changed since the 
last OMB approval.
