ICR Number: EPA ICR Number 1189.20, OMB Control Number 2050– 0053. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2008. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to VerDate Aug<31>2005 20:35 Jan 23, 2008 Jkt 214001 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: Under the authority of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement a comprehensive program for the safe management of hazardous waste. In addition, Congress wrote that ‘‘[a]ny person may petition the Administrator for the promulgation, amendment or repeal of any regulation’’ under RCRA (section 7004(a)). 40 CFR Parts 260 and 261 contain provisions that allow regulated entities to apply for petitions, variances, exclusions, and exemptions from various RCRA requirements. In this ICR, EPA presents a comprehensive description of these paperwork requirements and estimates the total annual burden and cost to respondents and the government. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for this ICR is estimated to average 27 hours per response, and the annual recordkeeping burden for this ICR is estimated to average 2 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. PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Respondents/Affected Entities: Business/industries subject to the regulations under 40 CFR Parts 260 and 261. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,535. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 73,752 hours. Estimated Total Annualized Cost Burden: $11,917,572 (includes $9,239,315 annualized O&M costs and $2,678,259 annualized labor costs). Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 2,177 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The burden decrease is an adjustment to the existing estimates based on data gathered through consultations with EPA Regional and State offices and the regulated community, not due to program changes.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: This ICR covers recordkeeping and reporting requirements for motor vehicle diesel fuel and non-road, locomotive, and marine diesel fuel. It also includes recordkeeping and reporting associated with the placement of codes on dyed diesel fuel (the dye is required under IRS regulations). The main purpose for recordkeeping and reporting is to ensure compliance with the regulations at 40 CFR Part 80, Subpart I—Motor Vehicle, Non-Road, Locomotive and Marine Diesel Fuel. Because the diesel fuel regulations are written to permit several types of flexibility, periodic reporting (annual and quarterly) is necessary in order for EPA to monitor compliance. Most reporting is mandatory. Parties may assert a claim of business confidentiality and submissions covered by such a claim will be treated in accordance with procedures at 40 CFR Part 2 and established Agency procedures. With this ICR the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) is also seeking permission to collect applications from refiners, importers, and independent laboratories in order to permit them to use performance-based test methods for measuring sulfur in diesel fuel and detecting the presence of a marker in diesel sold as heating oil. This was previously covered by EPA ICR Number 2180.02 (2060–0566), but since the entire burden in that ICR is related to motor vehicle and non-road diesel fuel, we are including it in this ICR and will terminate 2180.02 upon approval. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.62 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.

    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

    Abstract: Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), 
as amended, Congress directed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
to implement a comprehensive program for the safe management of 
hazardous waste. The core of the national waste management program is 
the regulation of hazardous waste from generation to transport to 
treatment and eventual disposal, or from ``cradle to grave.''
    This ICR addresses the following categories of informational 
requirements in part 262: pre-transport requirements for both large 
(LQG) and small (SQG) quantity generators; storage requirements in 
tanks, containment buildings and drip pads; air emission standards 
requirements for LQGs (referenced in 40 CFR Part 265, Subparts AA and 
BB); recordkeeping and reporting requirements for LQGs and SQGs; and 
export requirements for LQGs and SQGs (i.e., notification of intent to 
export and annual reporting).
    This collection of information is necessary to help generators and 
EPA: (1) Identify and understand the waste streams being generated and 
the hazards associated with them; (2) determine whether employees have 
acquired the necessary expertise to perform their jobs; and (3) 
determine whether LQGs have developed adequate procedures to respond to 
unplanned sudden or non-sudden releases of hazardous waste or hazardous 
constituents to air, soil, or surface water. This information is also 
needed to help EPA determine whether tank systems are operated in a 
manner that is fully protective of human health and the environment and 
to ensure that releases to the environment are managed quickly and 
efficiently.
    Additionally, this information contributes to EPA's goal of 
preventing contamination of the environment from hazardous waste 
accumulation practices, including contamination from equipment leaks 
and process vents. Export information is needed to ensure that:(1) 
Foreign governments consent to U.S. exported wastes; (2) exported waste 
is actually managed at facilities listed in the original notifications; 
and (3) documents are available for compliance audits and enforcement 
actions. In general, these requirements contribute to EPA's goal of 
preventing contamination of the environment.
    Burden Statement: The average public reporting under this 
collection of information is estimated to be 2.78 hours per respondent. 
The average public recordkeeping burden under this collection of 
information is estimated to be 0.05 hours. 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: Private Sector.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 101,500.
    Frequency of Response: Occasionally and biennially.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 286,866.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $11,321,660. This includes $22,770 in 
annualized capital costs, $15,473 in O&M costs, and $11,283,417 in 
Respondent Labor costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 166,217 annual 
hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB 
Inventory of Approved ICR Burden of 453,083 hours. This change 
primarily results from a decrease of 22,882 facilities, as well as

a change in assumptions associated with such categories as containment 
buildings, and contingency planning resulting in the reduction of 
additional burden hours.
