Abstract: The collection of the information on the ‘‘Create/Update Importer Identity Form’’, commonly referred to as the ‘‘CBP Form 5106’’ is the basis for establishing bond coverage, release and entry of merchandise, liquidation and the issuance of bills and refunds. Members of the trade community use the Create/Update Importer Identification Form to register an entity as an Importer of Record (IOR) on the Automated Commercial Environment. Registering as IOR with CBP is required if an entity intends to transact Customs business and be involved as an importer, consignee/ ultimate consignee, any individual or organization involved as a party, such as 4811 party, or sold to party on an informal or formal entry. The number used to identify an IOR is either an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Employer Identification Number (EIN), a Social Security Number (SSN), or a CBP-Assigned Number. By collecting, certain information from the importer enables CBP to verify the identity of the importers, meeting IOR regulatory requirements for collecting information. 19 CFR 24.5. Importers, each person, business firm, government agency, or other organization that intends to file an import entry shall file CBP Form 5106 with the first formal entry or request for services that will result in the issuance of a bill or a refund check upon adjustment of a cash collection. This form is also filed for the ultimate consignee for whom an entry is being made. CBP Form 5106 is authorized by 19 U.S.C. 1484 and 31 U.S.C. 7701, and provided for by 19 CFR 24.5.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On July 6, 2020, we published in the Federal Register (85 FR 40309) a notice of our intent to request that OMB approve this information collection. In that notice, we solicited comments for 60 days, ending on September 4, 2020. We received one comment in response to that notice: Comment 1: The respondent commented on the Southeast Geographic Area Bat Reporting Form (3– 202–55c), the Mussel Reporting Form (3–2523), and the Bumblebee Reporting Form (3–2526). They supported the southeast bat reporting form, stating their opinion that the form is useful, and an improvement over their State’s reporting form. They also recommended providing forms in an electronic input format for use in the field. Agency Response to Comment 1: We appreciate the respondent’s response on the utility of the Southeast Geographic Area Bat Reporting Form. The respondent is not within the geographic area where they would be using the Mussel or Bumblebee Reporting Forms, so their comments are not germane to the information collection at this time. We will update the form names accordingly to reduce confusion. At this time, we are not exploring creating an electronic input data form, but we will consider this as a potential streamlining tool for future information collection renewals. As part of our continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burdens, we are again soliciting comments from the public and other Federal agencies on the proposed SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78143 information collection request (ICR) that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following: (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) How might the agency minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of response. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The Endangered Species Act (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) provides a means to conserve the ecosystems upon which endangered and threatened species depend, to provide a program for the conservation of these endangered and threatened species, and to take the appropriate steps that are necessary to bring any endangered or threatened species to the point where measures provided for under the ESA are no longer necessary. Section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA authorizes us to issue permits for otherwise prohibited activities in order to enhance the propagation or survival of the affected species. Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA authorizes us to issue permits if the taking is incidental to the carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. ESA section 10(d) requires that such permits be applied for in good faith and, if granted, that the permit not operate to the disadvantage of endangered species, and that the permit be consistent with the purposes of the ESA. Our regulations implementing the ESA are in chapter I, subchapter B of title 50 of the Code of Federal E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1
