Title: Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Economy Compliance: Light Duty Vehicles, Light Duty Trucks, and Highway Motorcycles (Renewal). Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7521 et seq.) manufacturers and importers of light duty vehicles (passenger cars), light trucks, and motorcycles must have a certificate of conformity issued by EPA covering any vehicle they intend to offer for sale. In addition, light duty vehicles and light truck manufacturers and importers must also submit fuel economy information and reports required by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (49 U.S.C. 32901 et seq.). EPA reviews vehicle information and test data to determine if the vehicle design conforms to applicable requirements and to verify that the required testing has been performed. After a certificate of conformity has been issued, subsequent audit and enforcement actions may be taken based on the initial information submitted as well as on information submitted while the vehicles are in service. Until a vehicle is available for purchase, information is confidential. Some proprietary information is permanently confidential. 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 OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 4,656 hours per respondent.

    Title: Motor Vehicle Emission and Fuel Economy Compliance: Light 
Duty Vehicles, Light Duty Trucks, and Highway Motorcycles (Renewal).
    Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7521 et seq.) 
manufacturers and importers of light duty vehicles (passenger cars), 
light trucks, and motorcycles must have a certificate of conformity 
issued by EPA covering any vehicle they intend to offer for sale. In 
addition, light duty vehicles and light truck manufacturers and 
importers must also submit fuel economy information and reports 
required by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (49 U.S.C. 32901 et 
seq.). EPA reviews vehicle information and test data to determine if 
the vehicle design conforms to applicable requirements and to verify 
that the required testing has been performed. After a certificate of 
conformity has been issued, subsequent audit and enforcement actions 
may be taken based on the initial information submitted as well as on 
information submitted while the vehicles are in service. Until a 
vehicle is available for purchase, information is confidential. Some 
proprietary information is permanently confidential.
    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 OMB control numbers for EPA's 
regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and are identified on 
the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 4,656 
hours per respondent. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to 
a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review 
the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the 
information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are passenger car, light truck, and motorcycle vehicle 
manufacturers and importers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 139.
    Frequency of Response: Annually and Quarterly.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 647,176.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $47,459,648, which includes $3,060,000 
annualized O&M costs, $8,275,000 annualized capital/startup costs, and 
$36,124,648 annual labor costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 105,058 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is an adjustment of the prior 
estimate primarily reflecting an increase in the number of light duty 
test groups along with a more detailed analysis of the labor burdens 
associated with a more comprehensive accounting of tests and reports.
