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 title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: This information collection addresses paperwork activities that support the administration of the Safer Detergent Stewardship Initiative (SDSI). SDSI is a voluntary program administered by EPA to offer resources and recognition to businesses involved in the transition to safer surfactants. PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63895 Surfactants are a major ingredient in cleaning products such as detergents, cleaners, airplane deicers and firefighting foams. Safer surfactants are those that break down quickly to nonpolluting compounds. Businesses and other organizations that wish to be recognized by EPA should complete and submit an application form (EPA Form 6300–2). Under SDSI, businesses that have fully transitioned to safer surfactants, or (for non-profits, academic institutions, etc.) can document outstanding efforts to encourage the use of safer surfactants, are granted Champion status. Businesses that commit to a full and timely transition to safer surfactants, or (for non-profits, academic institutions, etc.) can document outstanding efforts to encourage the use of safer surfactants, are granted Partner status. This category provides recognition of significant accomplishments towards the use of safer surfactants. Partners will be listed on the EPA SDSI website and may be granted recognition as a Champion in the future if appropriate. Responses to the collection of information are voluntary. Respondents may claim all or part of a notice as CBI. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a CBI claim only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance with, the procedures in 40 CFR part 2.
