Background

The Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is accepting comments through July 29 on the information collection requirements associated with the importation of certain types of peppers from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama, which are allowed without treatment under certain conditions. These requirements include inspections by Central American national plant protection organization officials, phytosanitary certificates, labeling of boxes, monitor traps, trapping records, bilateral workplans, production site registrations and quality control programs.

Comments should address whether the information collected will have practical utility; the accuracy of APHIS’ estimate of the burden on those who are to respond and ways to minimize that burden, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information collected.
