As part of our continuing effort to
reduce paperwork and respondent
burdens, we invite the public and other
Federal agencies 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.
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. We will include or
summarize each comment in our request
to OMB to approve this ICR. Before

Abstract: The Captive Wildlife Safety
Act (CWSA; Pub. L. 108–191, 16 U.S.C.
3371 note, and 16 U.S.C. 3372 note)
amended the Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371
et seq.; 18 U.S.C. 42–43) by making it
illegal to import, export, buy, sell,
transport, receive, or acquire, in
interstate or foreign commerce, live
lions, tigers, leopards, snow leopards,
clouded leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, or
cougars, or any hybrid combination of
any of these species, unless certain
exceptions are met. The CWSA was
signed into law in 2003, and
enforcement began on September 17,
2007. There are several exemptions to
the prohibitions of the CWSA, including
accredited wildlife sanctuaries. There is
no requirement for wildlife sanctuaries
to submit applications to qualify for the
accredited wildlife sanctuary
exemption. Wildlife sanctuaries
themselves will determine if they
qualify. As a matter of routine, we do
not inspect or follow up on wildlife
sanctuaries unless we have cause for
concern. To qualify, they must meet all
of the following criteria:
Obtain approval by the U.S. Internal
Revenue Service (IRS) as a corporation
that is exempt from taxation under
section 501(a) of the IRS Code of 1986
(Pub. L. 99–514), which is described in
sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of
that code.
Do not engage in commercial trade
in the prohibited wildlife species,
including offspring, parts, and products.
Do not propagate the prohibited
wildlife species.
Allow no direct contact between the
public and the prohibited wildlife
species.
The basis for this information
collection is the recordkeeping
requirement that we place on accredited
wildlife sanctuaries. We require
accredited wildlife sanctuaries to
maintain complete and accurate records
of any possession, transportation,
acquisition, disposition, importation, or
exportation of the prohibited wildlife
species as defined in the CWSA (see
title 50 of the Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR) at part 14, subpart K).
Records must be up to date and include:
(1) Names and addresses of persons to
or from whom any prohibited wildlife
species has been acquired, imported,
exported, purchased, sold, or otherwise
transferred; and (2) dates of these
transactions. Accredited wildlife
sanctuaries must:
Maintain these records for 5 years.
Make these records accessible to
Service officials for inspection at
reasonable hours.
Copy these records for Service
officials, if requested.
Title of Collection: Captive Wildlife
Safety Act, 50 CFR 14.250–14.255.
OMB Control Number: 1018–0129.
Form Number: None.
Type of Review: Extension of a
currently approved collection.
Respondents/Affected Public:
Accredited wildlife sanctuaries.
Total Estimated Number of Annual
Respondents: 750.
Total Estimated Number of Annual
Responses: 750.
Estimated Completion Time per
Response: 1 hour.
Total Estimated Number of Annual
Burden Hours: 750.
Respondent’s Obligation: Required to
obtain or retain a benefit.
Frequency of Collection: Ongoing.
Total Estimated Annual Nonhour
Burden Cost: $300.
An agency may not conduct or
sponsor and a person is not required to
respond to a collection of information
unless it displays a currently valid OMB
control number.
The authority for this action is the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
