US - The Food and Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) says it intends to approve information collection concerning the regulatory requirements for marking, labeling and packaging of meat, poultry and egg products.

The proposal is in line with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations. However, it is also in response to the increased time and resources it is taking the service to deal with expanding information collection procedures.

The Agency is revising its information collection based on revised estimates of the number of establishments and the time necessary to complete forms and assocaited 'red tape' requirments. Findings suggest an increased total burden of hours to 85,508, which far exceeds what the FSIS has available.

Comments on this notice may be mailed to Docket Clerk, US Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW., Room 2534 South Building, Washington, DC 20250.
