SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Egg Products.
    Type of Request: New information collection.
    Abstract: FSIS has been delegated the authority to exercise the 
functions of the Secretary (7 CFR 2.18, 2.53) as specified in the Egg 
Products Inspection Act (EPIA) (21 U.S.C. 1031, et seq.). This statute 
mandates that FSIS protect the public by verifying that egg products 
are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled and packaged.
    FSIS intends to collect information on the FSIS Form PY-200 ``Egg 
Products Inspection Certificate.'' FSIS is seeking approval for the 
FSIS Form PY-200 so that industry personnel can assist FSIS with its 
completion (9 CFR 590.220). This is a new information collection with 
an estimated burden of 96,360 hours.
    The FSIS Form PY-200 ``Egg Products Inspection Certificate'' is a 
USDA-FSIS serially numbered official form that has multiple uses within 
the egg products inspection program. IPP assigned to an official egg 
products plant issue the FSIS Form PY-200 for various reasons. The form 
is used to record inspection results, such as information indicating 
that IPP have examined the type (i.e., frozen whole eggs, liquid egg 
yolks, dried egg whites) and the condition of egg products to be 
shipped. The form is also used to record that the egg product meets the 
requirements of 9 CFR part 590 and any applicable voluntary 
specification requirements. IPP are to issue a completed FSIS Form PY-
200 to meet FSIS regulatory requirements and at the request of an 
applicant (e.g., egg products plant manager) to accompany any domestic 
shipment of egg products.
    FSIS has made the following estimates on the basis of an 
information collection assessment.
    Estimate of Burden: FSIS estimates that it takes respondents an 
average of 15 minutes to complete the form.
    Respondents: Egg products plant personnel.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 66.
    Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 5,840.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 96,360 hours.
    Copies of this information collection assessment can be obtained 
from Gina Kouba, Office of Policy and Program Development, Food Safety 
and Inspection Service, USDA, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Room 6065, 
South Building, Washington, DC 20250-3700; (202) 720-5627.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of FSIS's 
functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of FSIS's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
method and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, 
and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information, including through 
the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other 
technological collection techniques, or other forms of information 
technology. Comments may be sent to both FSIS, at the addresses 
provided above, and the Desk Officer for Agriculture, Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB), Washington, DC 20253.
    Responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of 
public record.
