Title: Veterans Affairs Acquisition Regulation (VAAR) Provision 852.270-3, Shellfish.
OMB Control Number: 2900-0589.
Type of Review: Reinstatement, without change, of a previously approved collection for which approval has expired.
Abstract: VAAR Provision 852.270-3, Shellfish, requires that a firm furnishing shellfish to VA must ensure that the shellfish is packaged in a container that is marked with the packer's State certificate number and State abbreviation. In addition, the firm must ensure that the container is tagged or labeled to show the name and address of the approved producer or shipper, the name of the State of origin and the certificate number of the approved producer or shipper. This information normally accompanies the shellfish from the packer and is not information that must be separately obtained by the seller. The information is needed to ensure that shellfish purchased by VA comes from a State- and Federal-approved and inspected source. The information is used to help ensure that VA purchases healthful shellfish.
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on March 27, 2001, at page 16704.
Affected Public: Business or other for profit, individuals or households, and not-for-profit institutions.
Estimated Annual Burden: 17 hours.
Estimated Average Burden Per Respondent: 1 minute.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,000.
