    An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service

    Title: Federal Recognized State Managed Phytosanitary Program.
    OMB Control Number: 0579-0365.
    Summary of Collection: Under the Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 
7701-7772), the Secretary of Agriculture is authorized to prohibit or 
restrict the importation, entry, or movement of plants and plant pests 
to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or 
their dissemination within the United States. The Animal and Plant 
Health Inspection Service (APHIS), Plant Protection and Quarantine 
(PPQ), has established the following procedures for States (through the 
National Plant Board (NPB)) to petition the Agency to recognize State-
level plant pest regulations and associated action taken as meeting the 
international criteria for official control and accepted measures to 
protect areas that would be economically or environmentally endangered 
by the introduction of a pest. The International Plant Protection 
Convention (IPPC) defines ``official control'' as the active 
enforcement of mandatory phytosanitary regulations and the application 
of mandatory phytosanitary procedures with the objective of eradication 
or containment of quarantine pests or for the management of regulated 
non-quarantine pests.
    Need and use of the Information: APHIS developed criteria by which 
petitions will be evaluated and status will be granted. APHIS/PPQ and 
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP), take action on imported products when quarantine 
pests are found upon inspection. Quarantine pests include those that 
pose a risk to agriculture or the environment but: (1) Do not exist in 
the United States, (2) exist in the United States but are under Federal 
domestic quarantine under 7 CFR 301 or by Federal Order, (3) exist in 
the United States but were recently detected and whose regulatory 
status is under consideration, or (4) exist in the United States but 
are under State-level quarantine that has been approved by APHIS as 
providing a level of protection equivalent to a Federal domestic 
quarantine. APHIS has taken action on pests that meet the fourth 
criteria for years based on informal requests by States in the interest 
of supporting our State cooperators and industries within those States 
and this program/information collection aims to standardize this 
process. Without this information, APHIS would be less effective in 
establishing procedures that are used to contain regulated plant pests 
within the United States. If this information was not collected or 
collected less frequently, APHIS would be less effective in 
establishing procedures that are used to contain regulated plant pests 
within the United States.
    Description of Respondents: State, Local, or Tribal Government.
    Number of Respondents: 1.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion.
