Food Safety and Inspection Service 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 FSISregulated 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 PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 laboratory methods and quality assurance records documentation from the accredited, non-FSIS laboratory.

It authorizes the Agency to enter into contracts to make payments to eligible entities to support and ensure an expanding production of advanced biofuels. Entities eligible to receive payments under the Program are producers of advanced biofuels that meet all of the requirements of the Program.

The reduction in the burden to the public reflects a full accounting of all Rural Development (RD) forms that must be provided by participating producers. The estimated burden includes accounting for the Assurance Agreement (RD 400–4) and the Certification for Contracts, Grants and Loans (RD 1940–Q). The total estimated costs to the public was decreased by $16,879 per year, from $66,096 to 49,217. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.89 hours per response. Respondents: The respondents are the advanced biofuel producers and Agency staff who process applications and quarterly payment requests. Estimated Number of Respondents: 206 advanced biofuel producers. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimate Number of Responses: 1,500. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1,339 hours.
