Title: Secondary Non-Ferrous Metals Processing Area Source Standard Development Questionnaire. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43407 Abstract: The proposed ICR will collect information and data from 110 existing secondary non-ferrous metal processing plants. Plants will be requested to complete a simple paper questionnaire on production processes and equipment, air pollution control systems, pollution prevention management practices, applicable regulatory requirements, and emissions test data. The questionnaire may be completed from existing information; no additional monitoring or testing is required. The EPA will use the collected information and data to develop area source standards for hazardous air pollutants required under section 112(d) of the Clean Air Act. This collection of information is mandatory under section 114 of the Clean Air Act, (42 U.S.C 7414). All information submitted to EPA pursuant to this ICR for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to Agency policies in 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. 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.

Burden Statement: The average annual respondent burden per facility is estimated at 62 hours at a cost of $4,894. 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 E:\FR\FM\27JYN1.SGM 27JYN1 43408 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 143 / Wednesday, July 27, 2005 / Notices 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.

AGENCY: ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: This notice announces amendments to terminate certain uses of products containing the pesticide DCPA, pursuant to section 6(f)(1) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. This notice follows a February 16, 2005 Federal Register Notice of Receipt of Request from the DCPA registrant to voluntarily amend to terminate certain uses of their DCPA product registrations. These are not the last DCPA products registered for use in the United States. In the February 16 Notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the amendments to terminate the subject uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30– day comment period that would merit its further review of the request. The Agency received three substantive comments on the Notice, two of which requested that several use sites proposed for termination be retained. EPA hereby issues in this notice an order to amend the subject registrations to terminate a subset of the uses initially requested for termination by the registrant. Any distribution, sale, or use of the DCPA products subject to this order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions. The use terminations are effective on July 31, 2005.
