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.

Abstract: The Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA, 16 U.S.C. 703, et seq.) prohibits the unauthorized take of migratory birds and authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to regulate take of migratory birds in the United States. Under this authority, we control the hunting of migratory game birds through regulations in 50 CFR part 20. On January 1, 1991, we banned lead shot for hunting waterfowl and coots in the United States. This is a non-form collection. Regulations at 50 CFR 20.134 outline the application and approval process for new types of nontoxic shot. When considering approval of a candidate material as nontoxic, we must ensure that it is not hazardous in the environment and that secondary exposure (ingestion of spent shot or its components) is not a hazard to migratory birds. To make that decision, we require each applicant to provide information about the solubility and toxicity of the candidate material. Additionally, for law enforcement purposes, a noninvasive field detection device must be available to distinguish candidate shot from lead shot. This information constitutes the bulk of an application for approval of nontoxic shot. The Director uses the data in the application to decide whether to approve a material as nontoxic. Title of Collection: Approval Procedures for Nontoxic Shot and Shot Coatings (50 CFR 20.134). OMB Control Number: 1018–0067. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Businesses that produce and/or market approved nontoxic shot types or nontoxic shot coatings. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 1. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 1. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 3,200 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 3,200 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Required to obtain or retain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: On occasion. E:\FR\FM\20OCN1.SGM 20OCN1
