Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for Importation of Nonroad Engines and Recreational Vehicles. ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1723.05, OMB Control No. 2060–0320. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on May 31, 2008. 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 ICR covers the burden associated with EPA Form 3520–21, a declaration form for importers of nonroad vehicles or engines into the United States, which identifies the regulated category of engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the possible burden of EPA Form 3520–8 if it comes VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:31 Dec 13, 2007 Jkt 214001 to be used to request final importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers of nonroad Compression Ignition engines, who would have to bring the engines into compliance and provide test results, comparable to the use of Form 3520–8 for on-road vehicles and engines as covered by OMB 2060– 0095. The information is used by Agency enforcement personnel to verify that all nonroad vehicles and engines subject to Federal emission requirements have been declared upon entry or that the category of exclusion or exemption from emissions requirements has been identified in the declaration. The information is also used to identify and prosecute violators of the regulations and to monitor the program in achieving the objectives of the regulations. The Forms are required before making customs entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.81 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 the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4,801. Frequency of response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may be used.) Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 2.5. Estimated total annual burden hours: 9749. Estimated total annual costs: $520,787.

    Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are 
importers into the United States of nonroad engines and vehicles.
    Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for Importation of 
Nonroad Engines and Recreational Vehicles.
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1723.05, OMB Control No. 2060-0320.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on May 31, 
2008. 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 ICR covers the burden associated with EPA Form 3520-
21, a declaration form for importers of nonroad vehicles or engines 
into the United States, which identifies the regulated category of 
engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the 
importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the possible 
burden of EPA Form 3520-8 if it comes to be used to request final 
importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers of nonroad 
Compression Ignition engines, who would have to bring the engines into 
compliance and provide test results, comparable to the use of Form 
3520-8 for on-road vehicles and engines as covered by OMB 2060-0095. 
The information is used by Agency enforcement personnel to verify that 
all nonroad vehicles and engines subject to Federal emission 
requirements have been declared upon entry or that the category of 
exclusion or exemption from emissions requirements has been identified 
in the declaration. The information is also used to identify and 
prosecute violators of the regulations and to monitor the program in 
achieving the objectives of the regulations. The Forms are required 
before making customs entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.81 
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 the Agency's estimate, 
which is only briefly summarized here:
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4,801.
    Frequency of response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may 
be used.)
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 
2.5.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 9749.
    Estimated total annual costs: $520,787. This includes an estimated 
burden cost of $484,785 and an estimated cost of $36,002 for capital 
investment or maintenance and operational costs.

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. At that time, 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. If you have any 
questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the 
technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
