Title: Recordkeeping and Periodic Reporting of the Production, Import, Export, Recycling, Destruction, Transhipment, and Feedstock Use of Ozone-Depleting Substances (Renewal) Abstract: The international treaty The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone and Title VI of the Clean Air Act (CAA) established limits on total United States (U.S.) production, import, and export of class I and class II controlled ozone depleting substances (ODS). Under its Protocol commitments, the United States is obliged to cease production and import of class I controlled substances with exemptions for essential uses, critical uses, previously used material, and material that will be transformed, destroyed, or exported to developing countries. The Protocol also establishes limits and reduction schedules leading to the eventual phaseout of class II controlled substances with similar exemptions beyond the phaseout. Additionally, the CAA has its own limits on production and consumption of controlled substances that EPA must adhere to and enforce. To ensure the United States compliance with the limits and restrictions established by the Protocol and the CAA, the ODS phaseout regulations establish control measures for individual companies. The limits and restrictions for individual United States companies are monitored by EPA through the recordkeeping and reporting requirements established in the regulations stated in 40 CFR part 82, subpart A. To submit required information, regulated entities can download reporting forms from EPA’s stratospheric ozone Web site (http:// www.epa.gov/ozone/record.index.html), complete them, and then send them to EPA via U.S. Mail or fax. Upon receipt VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:33 Aug 30, 2005 Jkt 205001 of the reports, the data is entered and subsequently stored in the Stratospheric Protection Tracking System (Tracking System). The Tracking System is a secure database that maintains all of the data that is submitted to EPA and allows the Agency to: (1) Maintain control over total production and consumption of controlled substances to satisfy conditions of the CAA and fulfill the United States obligations under the Protocol; (2) monitor compliance with limits and restrictions on production, imports, exports, and specific exemptions to the phaseout for individual U.S. companies; and (3) enforce against illegal imports and violations related to the control of class I and class II substances. Additionally, reporting on the exemptions permits an entity to retain the benefit of being able to produce or import a controlled class I ODS beyond the date of complete phaseout. EPA is developing an electronic reporting system through the Agency’s Central Data Exchange (CDX) that will allow regulated entities to download, complete, and submit reports electronically. Electronic reporting is expected to make the reporting process more effective and efficient for reporting companies and EPA. When electronic reporting becomes available, EPA will change its guidance document and its ICR to indicate a reduction in burden hours. Pursuant to regulations 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, reporting businesses are entitled to assert a business confidentiality claim covering any part of the submitted business information as defined in 40 CFR 2.201(c). 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 about seven hours per response 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 PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51781 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: Persons that produce, import, export, destroy, transform as a feedstock, distribute, or apply controlled ODS. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,138. Frequency of Response: On occasion, quarterly, and annually (as applicable). Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 8,370. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $714,160, which includes $0 annualized capital/startup costs, $5,580 annual O&M costs, and $708,520 annual labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,567 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is largely attributed to the reduction of the number of responses and respondents. The decrease in Agency hours is due to the longevity of the regulatory program and its implementation. Estimates have also been refined based on historical information. Dated: August 25, 2005. Oscar Morales, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Title: NESHAP for Natural Gas Transmission and Storage (Renewal) Abstract: This information collection request addresses Clean Air Act information collection requirements in standards published at 40 CFR part 63, subpart HHH, which have mandatory recordkeeping and reporting requirements. These regulations were proposed on February 6, 1998, promulgated on June 17, 1999, and apply to major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) that transport or store natural gas prior to entering the pipeline to a local distribution company or to a final end user (if there is no local distribution company). In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any start-up, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these records, and retain the file for at least 5 years following the date of PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 such occurrences, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated State or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA Regional Office.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51783 Title: Enforcement Policy Regarding the Sale and Use of Aftermarket Catalytic Converters (Renewal) Abstract: Section (a)(3) of the Clean Air Act (Act) prohibits removing or rendering inoperative automobile emission control devices or elements of design. But for the adoption of the aftermarket catalytic converter enforcement policy (51 FR 28814– 28819, 28133 (August 5, 1986); 52 FR 42114 (November 3, 1987) ), 67 FR 319 (January 3, 2002) the manufacture, sale or installation of aftermarket catalytic converters (catalysts) not equivalent to new original equipment (OE) catalysts would constitute a violation of the Act. However, because replacement OE catalysts are expensive, many consumers had elected to not replace catalysts that malfunctioned subsequent to the expiration of the emissions warranty on their vehicles. The Agency believes that allowing the installation of aftermarket catalysts on older vehicles can be environmentally beneficial if the Agency can be assured that the aftermarket catalysts meet certain standards and if installers are accountable to select the proper aftermarket catalyst for each vehicle application. Manufacturers of new aftermarket catalysts are required on a one time basis, for each catalyst line manufactured, to identify the catalyst physical specifications and summarize pre-production testing of the prototype. Previously, manufacturers were required to submit semi-annual reports to EPA of the number of each type of catalytic converter manufactured and a summary (or copies at manufacturer’s option) of warranty card information. These requirements are both discontinued. The information would still have to be retained for 5 years, and would be subject to EPA inspection. A technical change is being made to clarify the existing requirement that converters be labeled, specifically that information affixed to the converters appears on the underside so that it can be seen after the converter is installed. Reconditioners of used catalysts must, on a one-time basis, identify themselves and provide information regarding their converter testing equipment and procedures followed when testing used catalysts. All used catalytic converters must be individually bench-tested. The requirement to submit semi-annual reports to EPA disclosing the identity of persons who distribute the reconditioned catalysts and the number of reconditioned catalysts of each type that are sold to each distributor is discontinued. Companies that install aftermarket catalysts have no reporting requirements E:\FR\FM\31AUN1.SGM 31AUN1

    Title: NESHAP for Natural Gas Transmission and Storage (Renewal)
    Abstract: This information collection request addresses Clean Air 
Act information collection requirements in standards published at 40 
CFR part 63, subpart HHH, which have mandatory recordkeeping and 
reporting requirements. These regulations were proposed on February 6, 
1998, promulgated on June 17, 1999, and apply to major sources of 
hazardous air pollutants (HAP) that transport or store natural gas 
prior to entering the pipeline to a local distribution company or to a 
final end user (if there is no local distribution company). In general, 
all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, 
and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also required to maintain 
records of the occurrence and duration of any start-up, shutdown, or 
malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period 
during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, 
reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are 
required of all sources subject to NESHAP.
    Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these records, and retain the file for at least 5 
years following the date of such occurrences, maintenance reports, and 
records. All reports are sent to the delegated State or local 
authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the 
reports are sent directly to the EPA Regional Office.
    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 15 
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: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are those that transport or store natural gas prior to 
entering the pipeline to a local distribution company or to a final end 
user (if there is no local distribution company).
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 830.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion, Semi-annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 757 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Costs: $61,087, which includes $0 annualized 
capital/startup costs, $0 annual O&M costs, and $61,087 annual labor 
costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 176 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is due to the calculation of the 
industry technical labor hours at a higher level relative to total 
labor hours than in the active ICR.
