Respondents/Affected Entities: Manufacturers, importers, formulators and processors of substitutes for ozone depleting substances. Estimated Number of Respondents: 268. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 8,204 hours. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $511,430. This includes an estimated $492,252 in labor costs, $18,918 in capital costs and $260 in O&M costs. Changes in Estimates: The total number of burden hours requested for this information collection has decreased from 8,927 to 8,204. The SNAP burden hours have been decreasing since 2000 from 10,363 to 8,927 to 8,204 hours. The reason for this change in burden is the smaller number of respondents keeping records for alternatives that are subject to more narrowed use limits than three years ago because of the development of new substitutes. For example, users of some restricted fire suppressants now have other options available with no restriction, and thus no paperwork requirement. In addition, a smaller number of SNAP petitions are being filed than EPA estimated three years ago. The recordkeeping estimates remain the same. Dated: December 6, 2007.

Title: Underground Storage Tanks: Technical and Financial Requirements, and State Program Approval Procedures (Renewal). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1360.08, OMB Control No. 2050–0068. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2008. 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, and 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: Subtitle I of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, requires that EPA develop standards for UST systems, as may be necessary, to protect human health and the environment, and procedures for approving state programs in lieu of the federal program. EPA promulgated technical and financial requirements for owners and operators of USTs at 40 CFR part 280, and state program approval procedures at 40 CFR part 281. This ICR is a comprehensive presentation of all information collection requirements contained at 40 CFR parts 280 and 281. The data collected for new and existing UST system operations and financial requirements are used by owners and operators and/or EPA or the implementing agency to monitor results of testing, inspections, and operation of UST systems, as well as to demonstrate compliance with regulations. EPA E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1 mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 70838 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 239 / Thursday, December 13, 2007 / Notices believes strongly that if the minimum requirements specified under the regulations are not met, neither the facilities nor EPA can ensure that UST systems are being managed in a manner protective of human health and the environment. The response to this information collection for industry is mandatory under 40 CFR part 280. EPA uses state program applications to determine whether to approve a state program. Before granting approval, EPA must determine that programs will be no less stringent than the federal program and contain adequate enforcement mechanisms. States must respond to this information collection in order to obtain or maintain state program approval under 40 CFR part 281. Section 3007(b) of RCRA and 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, which define EPA’s general policy on public disclosure of information, contain provisions for confidentiality. However, the Agency does not anticipate that businesses will assert a claim of confidentiality covering all or part of the requirements covered in this ICR. If such a claim were asserted, EPA must and will treat the information in accordance with the regulations cited above. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 16 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: UST facilities and states. Estimated Number of Respondents: 237,578. Frequency of Response: Once, on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 5,969,217. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $743,453,178 ($453,047,585 in labor costs; $95,975,266 in annualized VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:10 Dec 12, 2007 Jkt 214001 capital/startup costs; and $194,430,327 in operation and maintenance costs). Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 163,020 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to updated data on the respondent universe which show a lower number of affected facilities than previously estimated. Dated: December 6, 2007.

    Title: Underground Storage Tanks: Technical and Financial 
Requirements, and State Program Approval Procedures (Renewal).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1360.08, OMB Control No. 2050-0068.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2008. 
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, and 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: Subtitle I of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act 
(RCRA), as amended, requires that EPA develop standards for UST 
systems, as may be necessary, to protect human health and the 
environment, and procedures for approving state programs in lieu of the 
federal program. EPA promulgated technical and financial requirements 
for owners and operators of USTs at 40 CFR part 280, and state program 
approval procedures at 40 CFR part 281. This ICR is a comprehensive 
presentation of all information collection requirements contained at 40 
CFR parts 280 and 281.
    The data collected for new and existing UST system operations and 
financial requirements are used by owners and operators and/or EPA or 
the implementing agency to monitor results of testing, inspections, and 
operation of UST systems, as well as to demonstrate compliance with 
regulations. EPA

[[Page 70838]]

believes strongly that if the minimum requirements specified under the 
regulations are not met, neither the facilities nor EPA can ensure that 
UST systems are being managed in a manner protective of human health 
and the environment. The response to this information collection for 
industry is mandatory under 40 CFR part 280.
    EPA uses state program applications to determine whether to approve 
a state program. Before granting approval, EPA must determine that 
programs will be no less stringent than the federal program and contain 
adequate enforcement mechanisms. States must respond to this 
information collection in order to obtain or maintain state program 
approval under 40 CFR part 281.
    Section 3007(b) of RCRA and 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, which define 
EPA's general policy on public disclosure of information, contain 
provisions for confidentiality. However, the Agency does not anticipate 
that businesses will assert a claim of confidentiality covering all or 
part of the requirements covered in this ICR. If such a claim were 
asserted, EPA must and will treat the information in accordance with 
the regulations cited above.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 16 
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.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: UST facilities and states.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 237,578.
    Frequency of Response: Once, on occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 5,969,217.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $743,453,178 ($453,047,585 in labor 
costs; $95,975,266 in annualized capital/startup costs; and 
$194,430,327 in operation and maintenance costs).
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 163,020 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to updated data on the 
respondent universe which show a lower number of affected facilities 
than previously estimated.
