Start Preamble

The Department of Commerce has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Title: Limits on Application of Take Prohibitions.

Form Number(s): None.

Number of Respondents: 301.

Average Hours per Response: Plans, 12 hours; and annual reports, 2 hours.

Needs and Uses: In accordance with Section 4(d) of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), NOAA promulgates regulations that would prohibit “take” (e.g., harassment or harm) of threatened salmonids. These regulations identify conservation-oriented programs or circumstances in which the ESA's take prohibitions would not apply.

Frequency: Annually and on occasion.
