    Title: Laboratory Assessment Requests.
    OMB Control Number: 0583-New.
    Summary of Collection: The Food Safety and Inspection Service 
(FSIS) has been delegated the authority to exercise the functions of 
the Secretary as provided in the Federal Meat Inspection Act (FMIA) (21 
U.S.C. 601, et seq.), the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) (21 
U.S.C. 451, et seq.) and the Egg Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 
U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). These statutes mandate that FSIS protect the 
public by ensuring that meat, poultry, and egg products are wholesome, 
not adulterated, and properly labeled and packaged.
    As a public health regulatory agency, FSIS investigates reports of 
foodborne illness, contamination, and adulteration potentially 
associated with FSIS-regulated products. During these investigations, 
non-FSIS laboratories may test FSIS regulated product and share the 
results with FSIS. FSIS Office of Public Health Science (OPHS) Staff 
(SciS) will review the results and associated documentation shared by 
the non-FSIS laboratory to determine whether FSIS will accept the 
results. If the SciS lead investigator determines the non-FSIS 
laboratory result is acceptable, FSIS may use the result to inform 
regulatory action (e.g. request a recall or detain product).
    Need and Use of the Information: As part of the process to 
determine if the non-FSIS laboratory result is acceptable, the SciS 
lead investigator collects information from the non-FSIS laboratory and 
verifies that the non-FSIS laboratory can provide the appropriate 
certifications and documentation of accreditation, such as ISO17025, or 
another third-party accreditation entity covering the methods 
performed. The SciS lead investigator also verifies that the laboratory 
has submitted all the necessary information, including evidence of 
chain of custody, the appropriate laboratory reports with sample 
identification, final results, and authorization by the responsible 
official for affirming results. The laboratory may use FSIS Form 8000-
17, Evidence Receipt and Chain of Custody, to submit information to 
FSIS. Finally, the SciS investigator collects and verifies laboratory 
methods and quality assurance records documentation from the 
accredited, non-FSIS laboratory.

    Number of Respondents: 3.
    Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.
    Total Burden Hours: 23.
