SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Title: African Swine Fever;
Importation of Live Dogs for Resale
From Regions Where African Swine
Fever Exists or is Reasonably Believed
to Exist.
OMB Control Number: 0579–0478.
Type of Request: Extension of
approval of an information collection.
Abstract: Under the Animal Health
Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 8301 et seq.),
the Secretary of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA) is authorized to
protect the health of the livestock,
poultry, and aquaculture populations in
the United States by preventing the
introduction and interstate spread of
serious diseases and pests of livestock,
poultry, and aquaculture, and for
eradicating such diseases and pests from
the United States, when feasible. Within
the USDA, this authority and mission is
delegated to the Animal and Plant
Health Inspection Service (APHIS).
Within APHIS, Veterinary Services is
tasked with, among other things,
preventing foreign animal disease
outbreaks in the United States, and
monitoring, controlling, and eliminating
a disease outbreak should one occur. In
the past several years, there have been
significant worldwide outbreaks of
African swine fever (ASF). ASF is a

highly contagious and deadly viral
disease affecting domestic and feral
(wild) pigs. The disease has not been
detected in the United States; however,
APHIS is committed to working with
State and industry partners to keep the
disease out of the country.
APHIS has determined that dogs
imported from ASF-affected countries
for resale purposes, along with their
bedding, represent a possible pathway
for the introduction of disease. To block
this pathway, APHIS issued a Federal
Order (DA–2021–01) 1 imposing several
restrictions on the importation of dogs
for resale from regions where ASF exists
or is reasonably believed to exist.
Importers will need to verify that they
have met these restrictions by
completing and submitting a Dog Import
Record that will record information
regarding the dogs’ characteristics,
identification, origin, entry into the
United States, disposition of their
bedding and packing material, and
confirmation of bathing.
We are asking the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) to
approve our use of these information
collection activities for 3 years.
The purpose of this notice is to solicit
comments from the public (as well as
affected agencies) concerning our
information collection. These comments
will help us:
(1) Evaluate 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;
(2) Evaluate the accuracy of our
estimate of the burden of the collection
of information, including the validity of
the methodology and assumptions used;
(3) Enhance the quality, utility, and
clarity of the information to be
collected; and
(4) Minimize the burden of the
collection of information on those who
are to respond, through use, as
appropriate, of automated, electronic,
mechanical, and other collection
technologies; e.g., permitting electronic
submission of responses.
Estimate of burden: The public
burden for this collection of information
is estimated to average 0.5 hours per
response.
Respondents: Importers and animal
breeders.
Estimated annual number of
respondents: 200.
Estimated annual number of
responses per respondent: 9.
Estimated annual number of
responses: 1,800.

Estimated total annual burden on
respondents: 900 hours. (Due to
averaging, the total annual burden hours
may not equal the product of the annual
number of responses multiplied by the
reporting burden per response.)
All 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.
Done in Washington, DC, this 25th day of
