That additional data are needed to determine or predict the impacts of the chemical’s manufacture, processing, distribution, use, or disposal. 3. That testing is needed to develop such data. Rules and consent orders under TSCA section 4 require that one manufacturer or processor of a subject chemical perform the specified testing and report the results of that testing to EPA. TSCA section 4 also allows a manufacturer or processor of a subject chemical to apply for an exemption from the testing requirement, if that testing will be or has been performed by another party. This information collection applies to reporting and recordkeeping activities associated with the information that EPA requires industry to provide in response to TSCA section 4 test rules, consent orders, test rule exemptions, and other data submissions. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory (see 40 CFR part 790). Respondents may claim all or part of a document confidential. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a claim of confidentiality only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance with, the procedures in TSCA section 14 and 40 CFR part 2. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 243 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 which have subsequently changed; 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 ICR provides a detailed explanation of this estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 58. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 10.4. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:23 Nov 13, 2007 Jkt 214001 Estimated total annual burden hours: 112,590 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $ 5,662,701. This includes an estimated burden cost of $ 5,662,701 and an estimated cost of $ 0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. IV. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approval? There is a net decrease of 90,424 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease reflects EPA’s revised estimates of the number of test rules and consent orders that the Agency expects to issue in the future, as well as revised estimates of the amount of testing still to be done under EPA’s High Production Volume Challenge Program. The supporting statement includes detailed analyses of these revised estimates. This change is an adjustment. V. What is the Next Step in the Process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.

(Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 2002.04, OMB Control Number 2025-0003.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2007. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
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: The scope of this Information Collection Request will 
focus on the final electronic reporting components of CROMERRR, which 
is designed to allow EPA to comply with the Government Paperwork 
Elimination Act of 1998; to provide a uniform, technology-neutral 
framework for electronic reporting across all EPA programs; to allow 
EPA programs to offer electronic reporting as they become ready for 
CROMERRR; and to provide states with a streamlined process--together 
with uniform set of criteria--for approval of their electronic 
reporting provisions for all their EPA-authorized programs. Responses 
to the collection of information are voluntary. In order to accommodate 
CBI, the information collected must be in accordance with the 
confidentiality regulations set forth in 40 CFR Part 2, Subpart B. 
Additionally, EPA will ensure that the information collection 
procedures comply with the Privacy Act of 1974 and the OMB Circular 
108.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.69 
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 which have subsequently changed; 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 Local Receiving Systems.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 220,826.
    Frequency of Response: Annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 151,963.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $10,763,740 which includes $4,450,658 
annualized Capital Startup Costs, $657,707 annualized Operating and 
Maintenance (O&M) costs and $5,655,374 annualized Labor Costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no significant change in the ICR 
compared to the previous ICR. This is due to the regulations having not 
changed over the past three years and is not anticipated to change over 
the next three years. There is, however, an adjustment in the labor 
cost estimate. This is due to the inflation of the labor rates over the 
past three years.
