Title: Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Program.
OMB Control Number: 0551-0001.
Summary of Collection: The Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota regulation (the Regulation) (7 CFR part 6.20-6.37) which governs the administration of the import licensing system applicable to most dairy products subject to tariff-rate quotas (TRQs). The importation of most cheese made from cow's milk and certain non-cheese dairy articles (butter, dried milks, and butter substitutes) are subject to TRQs and must be accompanied by an import license issued by the Department to enter at the lower tariff. Importers without licenses may enter these dairy articles but are required to pay the higher tariff. The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) will collect information using several forms.
Need and Use of the Information: FAS will use the collected information in the administration of the tariff-rate import quota licensing system for certain dairy products and the issuance of licenses in accordance with the Regulation. If the information were collected less frequently, FSA would be unable to issue licenses on an annual basis in compliance with the Import Regulation.
Description of Respondents: Business or other-for-profit.
Number of Respondents: 700.
Frequency of Responses: Record keeping, Reporting: Annually.
Total Burden Hours: 479.
