There is a program increase of +10 responses resulting in an increase of +10 burden hours. The increases are due to APHIS adding the addition of two activities to this information collection based on a revision of an underlying Veterinary Services guidance document; 1. Authorized Access Affidavit and 2. Standard Operating procedures. There is an adjustment increase of +8 respondents and +98 responses resulting in an increase of +128 burden hours. The increase is due to the addition of three import centers since the previous submission of this collection, bringing the total number of permanent privately owned equine import centers to seven. Also, APHIS is increased the accounting of the actual time spent by representative facilities in completing the activities.
