SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:57 May 18, 2020 Jkt 250001 OMB Number: 0551–0001. Expiration Date of Approval: June 30, 2020. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information collection. Abstract: The currently approved information collection supports the Dairy Tariff-rate Import Quota regulation (the Regulation) (7 CFR 6.20– 6.36) which governs the administration of the import licensing system applicable to most dairy products subject to tariff-rate quotas (TRQs). The TRQs were established in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) as a result of the entry into force of certain provisions in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (Pub. L. 103–465) that converted existing absolute quotas to TRQs. Imports of nearly all cheeses made from cow’s milk (except soft-ripened cheese such as Brie) and certain non-cheese dairy products (including butter and dried milk) are subject to TRQs and the Regulation. Licenses are issued each quota year to eligible applicants and are valid for 12 months (January 1 through December 31). Only licensees may enter specified quantities of the subject dairy articles at the applicable in-quota tariffrates. Importers who do not hold licenses may enter dairy articles only at the over-quota tariff-rates. Each quota year, all applicants must submit form FAS 923 (rev. 7–96). This form, available online, requires applicants to: (1) Certify they are an importer, manufacturer or exporter of certain dairy products; (2) certify they meet the eligibility requirements of § 6.23 of the Regulation; and (3) submit documentation required by § 6.23 and § 6.24 as proof of eligibility for import licenses. Applicants for non-historical licenses must also submit form FAS 923–A (rev. 7–96) (cheese) and/or FAS 923–B (rev. 7–96) (non-cheese dairy products). This form requires applicants to request licenses in descending order of preference for specific products and countries listed on the form. After licenses are issued, § 6.26 requires licensees to surrender by October 1 on form FAS 924–A, License Surrender Form, any license amount that a licensee does not intend to enter that year. These amounts are reallocated, to the extent practicable, to existing licensees for the remainder of that year based on requests submitted on form FAS 924–B, Application for Additional License Amounts. Forms 924A and 924B require the licensee to complete a table listing the surrendered amount by license number, or listing the additional amounts requested by dairy PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 article and supplying country in descending order of preference. The estimated total annual burden of 479 hours in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) inventory for the currently approved information collection will remain at 479 hours. The public reporting burden for this collection of currently approved forms FAS 923, FAS 923–A and 923–B (one form) (rev. 7–96) is estimated to average 446 hours; and FAS 924–A and FAS 924–B (one form) is 33 hours. Estimate of burden: The average burden, including the time for reviewing instructions, gathering data needed, completing forms, and record keeping is estimated at .75 hour for form FAS 923, 923–A, 923–B (rev. 7–96) and .15 hour for form 924–A, 924–B. Respondents: Importers and manufacturers of cheese and non-cheese dairy products, and exporters of noncheese dairy products. Estimated number of respondents: 550 for form FAS 923, 923–A, 923–B (rev. 7–96) and 150 for form 924–A, 924–B (rev. 7–96), total 700. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 479 hours. Copies of this information collection may be obtained from Connie Ehrhart, the Agency Information Collection Coordinator, at (202) 690–1578. Requests for Comments: Send comments regarding (a) whether the information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information including validity of the methodology and assumption used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques, or other forms of information technology. FAS is committed to compliance with the Government Paperwork Elimination Act, which requires Government agencies, in general, to provide the public the option of submitting information or transacting business electronically to the maximum extent possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Dairy Tariff-rate Import Quota Licensing Program.
    OMB Number: 0551-0001.
    Expiration Date of Approval: June 30, 2020.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved information 
collection.
    Abstract: The currently approved information collection supports 
the Dairy Tariff-rate Import Quota regulation (the Regulation) (7 CFR 
6.20-6.36) which governs the administration of the import licensing 
system applicable to most dairy products subject to tariff-rate quotas 
(TRQs). The TRQs were established in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTS) as a result of the entry into force of certain 
provisions in the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (Pub. L. 103-465) that 
converted existing absolute quotas to TRQs. Imports of nearly all 
cheeses made from cow's milk (except soft-ripened cheese such as Brie) 
and certain non-cheese dairy products (including butter and dried milk) 
are subject to TRQs and the Regulation. Licenses are issued each quota 
year to eligible applicants and are valid for 12 months (January 1 
through December 31). Only licensees may enter specified quantities of 
the subject dairy articles at the applicable in-quota tariff-rates. 
Importers who do not hold licenses may enter dairy articles only at the 
over-quota tariff-rates.
    Each quota year, all applicants must submit form FAS 923 (rev. 7-
96). This form, available online, requires applicants to: (1) Certify 
they are an importer, manufacturer or exporter of certain dairy 
products; (2) certify they meet the eligibility requirements of Sec.  
6.23 of the Regulation; and (3) submit documentation required by Sec.  
6.23 and Sec.  6.24 as proof of eligibility for import licenses. 
Applicants for non-historical licenses must also submit form FAS 923-A 
(rev. 7-96) (cheese) and/or FAS 923-B (rev. 7-96) (non-cheese dairy 
products). This form requires applicants to request licenses in 
descending order of preference for specific products and countries 
listed on the form.
    After licenses are issued, Sec.  6.26 requires licensees to 
surrender by October 1 on form FAS 924-A, License Surrender Form, any 
license amount that a licensee does not intend to enter that year. 
These amounts are reallocated, to the extent practicable, to existing 
licensees for the remainder of that year based on requests submitted on 
form FAS 924-B, Application for Additional License Amounts. Forms 924A 
and 924B require the licensee to complete a table listing the 
surrendered amount by license number, or listing the additional amounts 
requested by dairy article and supplying country in descending order of 
preference.
    The estimated total annual burden of 479 hours in the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) inventory for the currently approved 
information collection will remain at 479 hours. The public reporting 
burden for this collection of currently approved forms FAS 923, FAS 
923-A and 923-B (one form) (rev. 7-96) is estimated to average 446 
hours; and FAS 924-A and FAS 924-B (one form) is 33 hours.
    Estimate of burden: The average burden, including the time for 
reviewing instructions, gathering data needed, completing forms, and 
record keeping is estimated at .75 hour for form FAS 923, 923-A, 923-B 
(rev. 7-96) and .15 hour for form 924-A, 924-B.
    Respondents: Importers and manufacturers of cheese and non-cheese 
dairy products, and exporters of non-cheese dairy products.
    Estimated number of respondents: 550 for form FAS 923, 923-A, 923-B 
(rev. 7-96) and 150 for form 924-A, 924-B (rev. 7-96), total 700.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 479 hours.
