Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 35 / Thursday, February 21, 2008 / Notices what actions, if any, are being taken to protect public health and welfare and the environment. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 10.5 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: EPA expects a number of different industrial categories to report hazardous substances releases under the provisions of the CRRR. No one industry sector or group of sectors is disproportionately affected by the information collection burden. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,587. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 301,508 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $10,290,207, includes $128,076 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 17,354 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is primarily from the use of data on the actual number of continuous release reports from several regions and applying a growth rate consistent with prior years reporting. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Dated: February 12, 2008.
