Title: Water Quality Standards Regulation (Renewal). Abstract: Section 303(c) of the Clean Water Act requires States and authorized Tribes to establish water quality standards, and to review and, if appropriate, revise their water quality standards once every three years. The Act also requires EPA to review and either approve or disapprove the new or revised standards, and to promulgate replacement Federal standards if necessary. Section 118(c)(2) of the Act specifies additional water quality standards requirements for waters of the Great Lakes system. The Water Quality Standards Regulation governs national implementation of the water quality standards program. The Regulation consists of 40 CFR part 131, and portions of part 132 related to water quality standards, including 40 CFR 132.3, Appendix A, Appendix E, and Procedures 1 and 2 of Appendix F. The Regulation describes requirements and procedures for States and authorized Tribes to develop, review, and revise their water quality standards, and EPA procedures for reviewing and approving the water quality standards. The regulation requires the development and submission of information to EPA, including: —Results of each jurisdiction’s triennial review of its water quality standards (40 CFR 131.6 and 131.20), including any new or revised water quality standards that are adopted, and required supporting information. Water quality standards include use designations for specific water bodies; water quality criteria sufficient to protect the designated uses; and an antidegradation policy. The regulation requires that certain information be made available for public review as well. —Information that an Indian Tribe must submit to EPA in order to determine VerDate jul<14>2003 15:22 Aug 02, 2005 Jkt 205001 whether a Tribe is qualified to administer the water quality standards program (40 CFR 131.8). —Information a State or Tribe must submit if it chooses to exercise a dispute resolution mechanism for disputes between States and Tribes over water quality standards on common water bodies (40 CFR 131.7). —Information required by 40 CFR part 132 from dischargers to waters of the Great Lakes system, including bioassay tests initiated by dischargers to support development of water quality criteria; studies and demonstrations required by the antidegradation policy for the Great Lakes System; and analyses to request variances from water quality standards. The Guidance includes additional information collections that are addressed in separate Information Collection Requests for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program. 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 are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 988 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 a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Respondents/Affected Entities: State and certain Tribal governments, and water dischargers subject to certain requirements related to water quality standards in the Great Lakes system. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,796 (56 States and Territories, 30 Tribes, 516 major industrial and POTW dischargers, and 2,194 minor dischargers). Frequency of Response: At least once every three years for water quality standards reviews and submissions. PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44629 Once per occasion for Tribal applications to administer water quality standards; dispute resolution requests; and Great Lakes bioassay testing, variance requests, and antidegradation demonstrations. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 260,714. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $12,063,453 , including $0 for Capital Expense, $0 for O&M, and $12,063,453 for Respondent Labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 21,938 hours over the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is due to adjustments in the number of tribes receiving approval to administer water programs, even though there was a small reduction in some of the Great Lakes activities.

ICR Title: Application for New and Amended Pesticide Registration ICR Status: This is a request to renew an existing approved collection. This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2005. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. This ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its estimated burden and cost. Abstract: This data collection program is designed to provide the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with necessary data to evaluate an application of a pesticide product as required under Section 3 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). An individual or entity wanting to obtain a registration for a pesticide product must submit an application package consisting of information relating to the identity and composition of the product, proposed labeling, and supporting data (or compensation for others’ data) for the product as outlined in 40 CFR part 158. The EPA bases registration decisions for pesticides on its evaluation of a battery of test data provided primarily by applicants for registration. Required studies include testing to show whether a pesticide has the potential to cause unreasonable adverse human health or environmental effects. The Agency currently collects data on physical chemistry, acute and chronic toxicology, environmental fate, ecological effects, worker exposure, residue chemistry, environmental chemistry, and product performance. Respondents to this information collection activity typically complete and submit to EPA one or more forms, in addition to the required data, with their application for registration. If EPA’s evaluation of the data show that the statutory requirements of FIFRA are met, then a registration is approved. Under FIFRA, all pesticides must be registered by EPA before they may be sold or distributed in U.S. commerce. Registrants of EPA-registered pesticide products at times become subject to regulations, such as 40 CFR part 156, or guidance that include PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 labeling revisions. The revised labeling is submitted as an amendment to the Agency along with the completed application form (EPA Form 8570–1). Normally, data are not required or reviewed for revised labeling regulations or guidance; however, it is necessary that the revised labeling be reviewed and approved. This review is most often accomplished by a Product Manager or Team Leader to ensure that revisions are in compliance with the applicable labeling requirement or guidance. Responses to this information collection activity are required in order to obtain or retain a benefit. 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 be 152,974 hours. 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. The following is a summary of the burden estimates taken from the ICR: Respondents/Affected Entities: Pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing (NAICS 325320), e.g., Businesses engaged in the manufacture of pesticides.

    ICR Title: Application for New and Amended Pesticide Registration
    ICR Status: This is a request to renew an existing approved 
collection. This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2005. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. This 
ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its 
estimated burden and cost.
    Abstract: This data collection program is designed to provide the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with necessary data to evaluate 
an application of a pesticide product as required under Section 3 of 
the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
    An individual or entity wanting to obtain a registration for a 
pesticide product must submit an application package consisting of 
information relating to the identity and composition of the product, 
proposed labeling, and supporting data (or compensation for others' 
data) for the product as outlined in 40 CFR part 158. The EPA bases 
registration decisions for pesticides on its evaluation of a battery of 
test data provided primarily by applicants for registration. Required 
studies include testing to show whether a pesticide has the potential 
to cause unreasonable adverse human health or environmental effects. 
The Agency currently collects data on physical chemistry, acute and 
chronic toxicology, environmental fate, ecological effects, worker 
exposure, residue chemistry, environmental chemistry, and product 
performance. Respondents to this information collection activity 
typically complete and submit to EPA one or more forms, in addition to 
the required data, with their application for registration. If EPA's 
evaluation of the data show that the statutory requirements of FIFRA 
are met, then a registration is approved. Under FIFRA, all pesticides 
must be registered by EPA before they may be sold or distributed in 
U.S. commerce.
    Registrants of EPA-registered pesticide products at times become

include labeling revisions. The revised labeling is submitted as an 
amendment to the Agency along with the completed application form (EPA

labeling regulations or guidance; however, it is necessary that the 
revised labeling be reviewed and approved. This review is most often 
accomplished by a Product Manager or Team Leader to ensure that 
revisions are in compliance with the applicable labeling requirement or 
guidance.
    Responses to this information collection activity are required in 
order to obtain or retain a benefit. 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 be 152,974 
hours. 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.
    The following is a summary of the burden estimates taken from the 
ICR: Respondents/Affected Entities: Pesticide and other agricultural 
chemical manufacturing (NAICS 325320), e.g., Businesses engaged in the 
manufacture of pesticides.
    Estimated number of respondents: 2100.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 152,974.
    Estimated total annual labor cost: $15,811,472.
    Changes in the ICR since the last approval: There is no change in 
the hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB 
Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.

[[Page 44631]]

The only changes are to the respondent costs as reflected by the 
increase in labor costs adjusted to 2004 dollars, an increase of 
$1,603,798 dollars (from $14,208,074 to $15,811,472 dollars).
