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 VerDate jul<14>2003 14:24 Jul 19, 2005 Jkt 205001 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.

    Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must 
collect information on pesticide-producing establishments in order to 
meet the statutory requirements of Section 7 of the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). FIFRA requires 
producers of pesticide products, active ingredients, and devices to 
register their establishments with EPA and to submit an initial report, 
and thereafter, annually report on the types and amounts of products 
produced. The purpose of this notice is to request renewal of the 
collection process and reporting processes for the Application for 
Registration of Pesticide-Producing Establishments (EPA Form 3540-8), 
the Notification of Registration of Pesticide-Producing Establishments 
(EPA Form 3540-8A), and the Pesticides Report for Pesticide-Producing 
Establishments (EPA Form 3540-16).
    Application for Registration of Pesticide-Producing Establishments 
information, collected on EPA Form 3540-8, is a one-time requirement 
for all pesticide-producing establishments. The reporting of pesticide 
production information collected on the Pesticides Report for 
Pesticide-Producing Establishments, EPA Form 3540-16, is required 
within 30 days of receipt of the Notification of Registration of 
Pesticide-Producing Establishments (EPA Form 3540-8A); and then 
annually thereafter, on or before March 1. The information is entered 
and stored in EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance 
(OECA)/Office of Compliance (OC) Section Seven Tracking System (SSTS), 
a computerized data processing and record-keeping system.
    The Office of Compliance/OECA collects the establishment and 
pesticide production information for compliance oversight and risk 
assessment. The information is used by EPA Regional pesticide 
enforcement and compliance staffs, OECA, and the Office of Pesticide 
Programs (OPP) within the Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic 
Substances (OPPTS), as well as the U.S. Department of Agriculture

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 1.5 
hours per response. 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
