Title: NESHAP for Radionuclides (Renewal). Abstract: On December 15, 1989, pursuant to section 112 of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1977 (42 U.S.C. 1857), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated NESHAPs to control radionuclide emissions from several source categories. The effect of these emissions can have an adverse effect on public health if not limited through pollution control devices. The regulations were published in 54 FR 51653, and are codified at 40 CFR part 61, subparts B, H, I, K, R, T, and W. PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48129 Subpart T was rescinded on July 15, 1994 and subpart I was rescinded on December 30, 1996. Subpart H does not require an ICR because it covers Federal facilities that are not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act. Information collected is used by EPA to ensure that public health continues to be protected from the hazards of airborne radionuclides by compliance with the standards mentioned above. If the information were not collected, it is unlikely that a violation of these standards would be identified and, thus, there would be no corrective action initiated to bring the facilities back into compliance. Compliance is demonstrated through emission testing and/or dose calculation. All facilities are required to calculate, monitor, and maintain their records for 5 years, as required by 40 CFR part 61, § 61.95. The results are also reported to EPA–HQ , EPA regions, and delegated states. 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, 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 103 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: Owners and operators of selected facilities that emit radionuclides. Estimated Number of Respondents: 39. Frequency of Response: Annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 4,032. Estimated Total Annualized Cost Burden: $520,508, which includes $0 annualized Capital cost, $190,020 for E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1 48130 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 157 / Tuesday, August 16, 2005 / Notices Operations and Maintenance, and $330,488 Respondent Labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: Some burden hours estimates decreased because the number of facilities affected has increased due to facility closure. Dated: August 8, 2005.

Title: Assessment of Indoor Air Quality Outreach Products and Services. Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency is seeking approval for a three year generic clearance from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to determine how well EPA outreach products and services meet customers’ needs and to assess the effectiveness of its outreach products and services. This will be a voluntary collection of information to gauge customer satisfaction with outreach products and services, measure any resulting changes in knowledge or behavior, and evaluate environmental and human health impacts. EPA proposes to use assessment surveys to obtain feedback on outreach products and services including: documents, Web sites, and voluntary seminars and workshops delivered by Headquarters and Regional voluntary programs to the community. This feedback will help EPA improve the quality and delivery of voluntary tools and services. 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. This ICR will provide data for the purpose of informing EPA of the effectiveness of outreach products and services, and customer satisfaction with outreach products and services. The information collection is voluntary, and will be limited to non-sensitive data concerning the quality of outreach products and services. EPA will request feedback from a representative sample of those who receive products and services. The data collected will be used to estimate the rate of effectiveness of outreach products and services and no data collected will be used to make policy decisions. To help fulfill the broad mandate of protecting human health and the environment, EPA provides outreach products and services to the general public. Outreach products and services provide the general public with the specific information necessary to achieve and maintain good indoor air quality. In addition to providing information on indoor air quality, these products and services describe ways people can work to improve the indoor air quality in their home, work place, school, etc. Specific behavioral changes are described in our products and services that will help improve indoor air quality. In order to determine the effectiveness of the products and E:\FR\FM\16AUN1.SGM 16AUN1
