Title: Transition Program for Equipment Manufacturers (Renewal) ICR Numbers: EPA ICR No. 1826.04, OMB Control No. 2060–0369. 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, 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: When EPA establishes new regulations with tighter engine emission standards, engine manufacturers often need to change the design of their engines to achieve the required emissions reductions. Consequently, VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:22 Jan 11, 2008 Jkt 214001 original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) may also need to redesign their products to accommodate these engine design changes. Sometimes, OEMs have trouble making the necessary adjustments by the effective date of the regulations. In an effort to provide OEMs with some flexibility in complying with the regulations, EPA created the Transition Program for Equipment Manufacturers (TPEM). Under this program, OEMs are allowed to delay compliance with the new standards for up to seven years as long as they comply with certain limitations. Participation in the program is voluntary. Participating OEMs and engine manufacturers who provide the noncompliant engines are required to keep records and submit reports of their activities under the program. In 2008, a new TPEM phase will start as the new, nonroad compressionignition emission regulations (also known as Tier 4 regulations) become effective. This ICR Renewal incorporates the requirements that will be in effect during the active period of this supporting statement. The Tier 4 TPEM program is codified at 40 CFR Part 1039.625 while the Tier 1–Tier 3 program is codified at 40 CFR Part 89.102. The information is collected for compliance purposes by the Engine Programs Group, Certification and Compliance Division, Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Office of Air and Radiation. Confidentiality of proprietary information is granted in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act, EPA regulations at 40 CFR 2, and class determinations issued by EPA’s Office of General Counsel. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 86 hours per respondent. 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. PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2245 Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by these actions are manufacturers of compression-ignition engines and equipment. Estimated Number of Respondents: 99. Frequency of Response: Annually and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 8,547. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $652,930, includes $123,558 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 8,522 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. Burden has decreased due to a program change (new regulations). The current phase, as described in the previous ICR (the Tier 1–Tier 3 Program codified at 40 CFR Part 89), is nearing its end and a new phase with new requirements is starting in 2008 (Tier 4, 40 CFR Part 1039). Some overlap exists between the two programs. Although the new requirements impose a slightly larger burden on respondents, EPA estimates that fewer respondents will participate in the Tier 4 phase. The increase in O&M costs is due largely to foreign OEMs that must post a bond before importing their equipment ‘‘to cover any potential enforcement actions under the Clean Air Act.’’ Dated: January 8, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requires all federal agencies to be able to quickly and efficiently respond in the event of a breach of personally identifiable information and has directed agencies to publish a routine use that will allow disclosure of Privacy Act information to persons and entities in a position to assist with notifying affected individuals or playing a role in preventing, minimizing, or remedying any harm from a breach. Accordingly, the EPA is proposing to add a new routine use that will allow it to meet the OMB objective of responding quickly and efficiently should such a breach occur. This new routine use will help the Agency prevent, minimize, or remedy a data breach or compromise. All responses to a confirmed or suspected breach will be prepared on a case-by-case basis. The purpose and intent of this routine use is to allow the Agency, when necessary, to disclose information regarding the breach to individuals identified under the routine use and to give the affected individuals full and fair notice of the extent of these potential disclosures.

SUMMARY: The Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health (BEACH) Act, signed into law on October 10, 2000, amended the Clean Water Act (CWA), to incorporate provisions to reduce the risk of illness to users of the Nation’s recreational waters. Section 406(b) of the CWA, as amended by the BEACH Act, authorizes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to award grants to eligible States, Territories, Tribes, and local governments to develop and implement microbiological monitoring programs of coastal recreation waters, including the Great Lakes, which are adjacent to beaches or similar points of access used by the public. BEACH Act grants also develop and implement programs to notify the public of the potential exposure to disease-causing microorganisms in these waters. EPA encourages coastal and Great Lakes States and Territories to apply for BEACH Act grants for program implementation (referred to as implementation grants) to implement effective and comprehensive coastal recreation water monitoring and public notification programs. EPA also encourages coastal and Great Lakes Tribes to apply for BEACH Act grants for program development (referred to as development grants) to develop effective and comprehensive coastal recreation water monitoring and public notification programs. DATES: States and Territories must submit applications on or before March 14, 2008. Eligible Tribes should notify the relevant Regional BEACH Act grant coordinator of their interest in applying for a grant on or before February 28, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) requires all federal 
agencies to be able to quickly and efficiently respond in the event of 
a breach of personally identifiable information and has directed 
agencies to publish a routine use that will allow disclosure of Privacy 
Act information to persons and entities in a position to assist with 
notifying affected individuals or playing a role in preventing, 
minimizing, or remedying any harm from a breach. Accordingly, the EPA 
is proposing to add a new routine use that will allow it to meet the 
OMB objective of responding quickly and efficiently should such a 
breach occur. This new routine use will help the Agency prevent, 
minimize, or remedy a data breach or compromise. All responses to a 
confirmed or suspected breach will be prepared on a case-by-case basis. 
The purpose and intent of this routine use is to allow the Agency, when 
necessary, to disclose information regarding the breach to individuals 
identified under the routine use and to give the affected individuals 
full and fair notice of the extent of these potential disclosures.

agency for criminal, civil, administrative, personnel, or regulatory 
action.
