                 Title: Export Certificate Request Forms.
                 OMB Number: 0581-0283.
                 Expiration date of Approval: March 31, 2022.
                 Type of Request: Extension and revision of a currently approved

                 Abstract: The dairy grading program is a voluntary fee program
                authorized under the Agricultural Marketing Act (AMA) of 1946 (U.S.C.
                1621-1627). The regulations governing inspection and grading services
                of manufactured or processed dairy products are contained in 7 CFR part
                58. Importing countries require certification methods and sources of
                raw ingredients for dairy products. USDA, AMS, Dairy Grading Branch is
                the designated unit for dairy products in the United States. Exporters
                must request export certificates from USDA.
                 Need and Use of the Information: To provide the required
                information on dairy export sanitary certificates AMS must collect the
                information from the exporter. The information required on the sanitary
                certificates varies from country to country requiring specific forms
                for each country. Such information includes: Identity of the importer
                and exporter, to describe consignments specifics, and identify border
                entry at the country of destination. The information gathered using
                these forms is only used to create the export sanitary certificate.
                There has been a change in the overall burden of this submission.
                 Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of
                information is estimated to average .20 hours per response.
                 Respondents: Dairy product manufacturers, distributors, exporters,
                and consultants.
                 Estimated Number of Respondents: 275.
                 Estimated Total Annual Responses: 54,345.
                 Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 10,854.
                 Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of
                information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of
                the agency, including whether the information will have practical
                utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the
                proposed collection of information including the validity of the
                methodology and assumptions used; (3) way to enhance the quality,
                utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways
                to minimize the burden of the collection of information 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.
                 All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the
                request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public
                record.
