    Abstract: The information in this ICR enables the agency to obtain 
information needed to track the use of registered Livestock Protection 
Collar products which contain solutions of Sodium Monofluoroacetate 
(Compound 1080). The mandatory record-keeping requirements for these 
Compound 1080 collars were imposed by an administrative judge in 
October 1982 and confirmed by the agency in 1983. It ensures the proper 
use and function of the 1080 collar products, and demonstrates there is 
no threat of unreasonable harm to non-target animals or people.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Certified pesticide applicators that 
apply or hold inventory of 1080 collars, and the reporting agencies 
(state government, NAICS 999200) responsible for implementing and 
administering a 1080 collar monitoring program.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory.
    Estimated number of respondents: 33 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annual.
    Total estimated burden: 1,431 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

[[Page 28657]]

    Total estimated cost: $64,213 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 513 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease reflects voluntary cancellation of the 
1080 Livestock Protection Collar registration formerly held by the 
South Dakota Department of Agriculture and the removal of estimated 
burden associated with submission of annual Livestock Protection Collar 
production reports erroneously included in the previous renewal of this 
ICR. This resulted in a corresponding decrease in the associated 
burden. This change is an adjustment.

Director, Regulatory Support Division.
