Concurrence With OIE Risk
Designations for Bovine Spongiform
Encephalopathy
AGENCY
: Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service, USDA.
ACTION
: Notice.
SUMMARY
: We are advising the public of
our decision to concur with the World
Organization for Animal Health’s (OIE)
bovine spongiform encephalopathy
(BSE) risk designations for Ecuador and
Serbia. The OIE recognizes Ecuador as
being of controlled risk for BSE and
Serbia as being of negligible risk for
BSE. We are taking this action based on
our review of information supporting
the OIE’s risk designations for these
regions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
regulations in 9 CFR part 92 subpart B,
‘‘Importation of Animals and Animal
Products; Procedures for Requesting
BSE Risk Status Classification With
Regard To Bovines’’ (referred to below
as the regulations), set forth the process
by which the Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service (APHIS) classifies
regions for bovine spongiform
encephalopathy (BSE) risk. Section 92.5
of the regulations provides that all
countries of the world are considered by
APHIS to be in one of three BSE risk
categories: Negligible risk, controlled
risk, or undetermined risk. These risk
categories are defined in § 92.1. Any
region that is not classified by APHIS as
presenting either negligible risk or
controlled risk for BSE is considered to
present an undetermined risk. The list
of those regions classified by APHIS as
having either negligible risk or
controlled risk can be accessed on the
APHIS website at https://www.aphis.
usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/
animal-and-animal-product-import-
information/animal-health-status-of-
regions. The list can also be obtained by
writing to APHIS at Regionalization
Evaluation Services, 4700 River Road,
Unit 38, Riverdale, MD 20737.
Under the regulations, APHIS may
classify a region for BSE in one of two
ways. One way is for regions that have
not received a risk classification from
the World Organization for Animal
Health (OIE) to request classification by
APHIS. The other way is for APHIS to
concur with the classification given to a
country or region by the OIE.
If the OIE has classified a region as
either BSE negligible risk or BSE
controlled risk, APHIS will seek
information to support concurrence
with the OIE classification. This
information may be publicly available
information, or APHIS may request that
regions supply the same information
given to the OIE. APHIS will announce
in the Federal Register, subject to
public comment, its intent to concur
with an OIE classification.
In accordance with this process, we
published a notice
1
in the Federal
Register on October 25, 2019 (84 FR
57384–57385, Docket No. APHIS 2019–
0053), in which we announced our
intent to concur with the OIE risk
classifications of the following regions:
Regions of negligible risk for BSE:
Serbia.
Regions of controlled risk for BSE:
Ecuador.
We solicited comments on the notice
for 60 days ending on December 24,
2019. We did not receive any comments
by this date.
Therefore, in accordance with the
regulations in § 92.5, we are announcing
our decision to concur with the OIE risk
classifications for Ecuador and Serbia.
Pursuant to the Congressional Review
Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), the Office of
Information and Regulatory Affairs
designated this action as not a major
rule, as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
Authority: 7 U.S.C. 1622 and 8301–
8317; 21 U.S.C. 136 and 136a; 31 U.S.C.
9701; 7 CFR 2.22, 2.80, and 371.4.

Agency Information Collection
Activities: Proposed Collection;
Comment Request—Annual State
Report on Verification of Supplemental
Nutrition Assistance Program
Participation
AGENCY
: Food and Nutrition Service,
USDA.
ACTION
: Notice.
SUMMARY
: In accordance with the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, this
notice invites the general public and
other public agencies to comment on the
proposed information collection for the
Annual State Report of Verification of
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (SNAP) Participation. This is a
revision of a currently approved
information collection request. The
purpose of the Annual State Report of
Verification of SNAP Participants is to
ensure that no person who is deceased,
or has been permanently disqualified
from SNAP, improperly received SNAP
benefits for the fiscal year preceding the
report submission. Section 4032 of the
Agricultural Act of 2014 is the basis for
this collection. Section 4032 mandates
that States will ‘‘submit to the Secretary
a report containing sufficient
information for the Secretary to
determine whether the State agency has,
for the most recently concluded fiscal
year preceding that annual date, verified
that the State agency in that fiscal year
(1) did not issue benefits to a deceased
individual; and (2) did not issue
benefits to an individual who had been
permanently disqualified from receiving
benefits.’’ An email from each State
agency to the corresponding Food and
Nutrition Service (FNS) Regional SNAP
Program Director containing the
answers to the above questions will be
used as the mechanism for State
agencies to report their compliance with
the Agriculture Act of 2014.
DATES
: Written comments must be
submitted on or before November 1,
2021.
ADDRESSES
: Comments are invited on:
(a) Whether the proposed information
collection is necessary for the proper
performance of the functions of the
agency, including whether the
information has practical utility; (b) the
accuracy of the agency’s estimated
burden for the proposed information
collection, including the validity of the
methodology 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 information collection on
those who are to respond, including the
use of appropriate automated,
electronic, mechanical, or other
technological collection techniques or
other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Title: Annual State Report on
Verification of SNAP Participation.
OMB Number: 0584–0605.
Expiration Date: July 31, 2022.
Type of Request: Revision of a
currently approved information
collection.
Abstract: SNAP regulations at 7 CFR
273.16 require that State agencies
disqualify an individual who has
committed an intentional program
violation (IPV). Paragraph 7 CFR
273.16(e)(8) requires that these
individuals ‘‘be disqualified in
accordance with the disqualification
periods and procedures in paragraph (b)
of this section’’ (273.16(b)). Paragraph 7
CFR 273.16(i) requires State agencies to
report information concerning each
individual disqualified for an IPV to the
disqualified recipient database, the
electronic Disqualified Recipient
System (eDRS), and to use eDRS data to
determine the eligibility of individual
applicants prior to certification. SNAP
regulations at 7 CFR 272.14 require that
each State agency establish a system to
verify and ensure that benefits are not
issued to individuals who are deceased,
and that data source is the Social
Security Administration’s (SSA) Death
Master File. The information required
for the Annual State Report on
Verification of SNAP Participation is
obtained by validating that the State had
the appropriate systems in place and
followed procedures currently
mandated at 7 CFR 272.14 and 7 CFR
273.16 for the preceding fiscal year. The
burdens associated with establishing a
system to verify and ensure that benefits
are not issued to deceased individuals
or those permanently disqualified from
SNAP using both the SSA Death Master
File and eDRS are already approved
under OMB burden number 0584–0064,
expiration date August 31, 2021. Upon
OMB approval of the renewal of the
information collection for 0584–0605,
FNS intends to merge the hours
associated with 0584–0605 into OMB
Control Number 0584–0083, expiration
08/31/2023.
In order to meet the reporting
requirements specified in section 4032
of the Act, States are required to confirm
via email to their FNS Regional SNAP
Program Director that in the
immediately preceding Federal fiscal
year, they had the appropriate systems
in place to meet the requirements of
regulations at 7 CFR 272.14 and
273.16(i)(4) and that they conducted the
matches required by these regulations.
States are required to submit their
section 4032 reports to the FNS
Regional SNAP Director by March 31
each year for the preceding Federal
fiscal year. The estimated annual
burden for this collection is 57.4255
hours. This estimate includes the time
it takes each State agency to confirm
that they have complied with FNS
regulations for performing mandated
checks against both eDRS and the SSA
Death Master File, send an email to their
FNS Regional Office SNAP Program
Director to provide the verification, and
any additional recordkeeping associated
with this burden. States must perform
this verification once a year and must
retain these records for 3 years.
Burden Estimates: The previous
burden for this collection was 53
reporting hours. The requested burden
is 53 reporting hours. There is no
change in reporting hours. The previous
burden reported for recordkeeping was
4.41649. The requested recordkeeping
