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: Wood furniture manufacturers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 750. Frequency of Response: Initially, semiannually and quarterly. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 47,190 hours. Total Estimated Costs: $3,003,109, which includes $0 annualized Capital Startup Costs, $18,000 annualized Operations & Management (O&M) Costs, and $2,985,109 annualized Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Dated: April 6, 2007.
