                Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request
                August 24, 2021.
                 The Department of Agriculture has submitted the following
                information collection requirement(s) to OMB for review and clearance
                under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, Public Law 104-13. Comments
                are requested regarding: Whether the collection of information is
                necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
                including whether the information will have practical utility; the
                accuracy of the agency's estimate of burden including the validity of
                the methodology and assumptions used; ways to enhance the quality,
                utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to
                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.
                 Comments regarding this information collection received by
                September 27, 2021 will be considered. Written comments and
                recommendations for the proposed information collection should be
                submitted within 30 days of the publication of this notice on the
                following website Find this
                particular information collection by selecting ``Currently under 30-day
                Review--Open for Public Comments'' or by using the search function.
                 An agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information
                unless the collection of information displays a currently valid OMB
                control number and the agency informs potential persons who are to
                respond to the collection of information that such persons are not
                required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays
                a currently valid OMB control number.
                Foreign Agricultural Service
                 Title: Specialty Sugar Certificate Application.
                 OMB Control Number: 0551-0025.
                 Summary of Collection: The collect of information is necessary to
                fulfill the legal obligations of the regulation at 15 CFR 2011 subpart
                B to issue specialty sugar certificates, letters to importers signed by
                the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) Certifying Authority, and
                ensuring that U.S. importers comply with the program's requirements.
                The regulation sets forth the terms and conditions under which the
                Certifying Authority in FAS issues certificates to importers allowing
                them to enter specialty sugars under the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) for
                refined sugar.
                 Need and Use of the Information: The collected information will be
                used to: (1) Determine whether applicants for the program meet the
                regulation's eligibility criteria; (2) ensure that sugar to be imported
                is specialty sugar and meets the requirements of the regulation; (3)
                audit participants' compliance with the regulation; and (4) prevent
                entry of world-priced program sugar from entering the domestic
                commercial market instead of domestic specialty sugar market. The
                Certifying Authority needs the information to manage, plan, evaluate,
                and account for program activities. Less frequent collection or no
                collection would impede administration of the specialty sugar
                certificate program and reduce or eliminate imports essential to U.S.
                organic food and beverages processors.
                 Description of Respondents: Business or other for-profit.
                 Number of Respondents: 45.
                 Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually.
                 Total Burden Hours: 90.
                Ruth Brown,
                Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.
