Title: Fuel Quality Regulations for Diesel Fuel Sold in 2001 & Later Years; for Tax-Exempt (Dyed) Highway Diesel Fuel; & Nonroad Locomotive & Marine Diesel Fuel (Renewal). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1718.08, OMB Control No. 2060–0308. 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 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 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. 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 E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 16 / Thursday, January 24, 2008 / Notices 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: Businesses and other for-profits in the private sector. Estimated Number of Respondents: 4,875. Frequency of Response: Annual, quarterly, and/or on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 264,150. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $2,626,000 (all purchased services). Changes in the Estimates: There is a net decrease of 48,083 hours and $5,874,000 in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The change in burden hours reflects a decrease of 51,683 hours due to agency adjustment and an increase of 3,600 hours due to agency discretion. The additional 3,600 hours cover performance-based test methods previously counted under ICR 2180.02. The reduction in hours is due mostly to reporting requirements that applied at the start of the program that are no longer applicable to most parties (e.g., initial registration, application for flexibilities like small refiner status).

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: As part of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, the U.S. Congress included, as part of Section 507, the requirement that each state establish a Small Business Stationary Source Technical and Environmental Compliance Assistance Program to assist small businesses in complying with the Act. These programs are generally known as state Small Business Environmental Assistance Programs (SBEAP). EPA must provide the Congress with periodic reports from the EPA Small Business Ombudsman (SBO) on these programs, including their effectiveness, difficulties encountered, and other relevant information. Each state assistance program will submit requested information to EPA for compilation and summarization. This collection of information is mandatory under Section 507(a), (d), and (e) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, Public Law 101–549, November 15, 1990. This Act directs EPA to monitor E:\FR\FM\24JAN1.SGM 24JAN1

    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: This ICR covers recordkeeping and reporting requirements 
for motor vehicle diesel fuel and non-road, locomotive, and marine

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

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

includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire,

the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The change in burden hours 
reflects a decrease of 51,683 hours due to agency adjustment and an 
increase of 3,600 hours due to agency discretion. The additional 3,600
