And finally, in 1992, EPA finalized management standards for used oils destined for recycling. The Agency codified the used oil management standards in part 279 of 40 CFR. The regulations at 40 CFR part 279 establish, among other things, streamlined procedures for notification, testing, labeling, and recordkeeping. They also establish a flexible self-implementing approach for tracking off-site shipments that allow used oil handlers to use standard business practices (e.g., invoices, bill of lading). In addition, part 279 sets standards for the prevention and cleanup of releases to the environment during storage and transit. EPA believes these requirements will minimize potential mismanagement of used oils, while not discouraging recycling. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 4.9 hours per response. The total public recordkeeping burden for the Universal Waste requirements is estimated to average 0.2 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: Private Sector and State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 123,330. Frequency of Response: Biennially, On Occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 651,135. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $30,746,047 which includes $10,004,415 annualized capital and O&M costs and $20,741,632 annualized labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 457,901 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:38 Feb 25, 2008 Jkt 214001 Burdens, and an increase of $10,000,415 in annualized capital/start-up and operations and maintenance costs. This increase is due to the consolidation of this ICR with the Used Oil Management Standards Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements ICR. In addition, the 2005 final rule on Mercury-Containing Equipment also increased the burden for the Universal Waste portion of this ICR. Dated: February 20, 2008.
