Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are State, local, and tribal governments. Title: Establishing No-Discharge Zones Under Clean Water Act section 312. ICR Numbers: EPA ICR No. 1791.05, OMB Control No. 2040–0187. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2008. Abstract: (A) Sewage No-discharge Zones: The need for EPA to obtain information for the establishment of nodischarge zones (NDZs) for vessel sewage in State waters stems from CWA sections 312(f)(3), (f)(4)(A), and (f)(4)(B), and subsequent regulations at 40 CFR 140.4(a)–(c). No-discharge zones are established to provide State and local governments with additional protection of waters from treated or untreated vessel sewage. There are three ways in which NDZs for vessel sewage can be established. This ICR discusses the information requirements associated with the establishment of NDZs for vessel sewage. The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of a sewage NDZ (see 33 U.S.C. 1322). The information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the submission of any confidential information. (B) UNDS No-discharge Zones: Under section 312(n) of the Clean Water Act (‘‘Uniform National Discharge Standards for Vessels of the Armed Forces’’ or ‘‘UNDS’’) no-discharge zones (‘‘NDZs’’) for discharges from Armed Forces vessels may be established by either State prohibition or EPA prohibition following the procedures in 40 CFR Part 1700. UNDS also provides that the Governor of any State may petition EPA and the Secretary of Defense to review any determination or standard promulgated under the UNDS program if there is significant new information that could reasonably result in a change to the determination or standard. This ICR discusses the information that will be required from a State if it decides to establish a NDZ by State prohibition or apply for a NDZ by EPA prohibition, and the information that will be required from a State if it decides to submit a petition for review. The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of an UNDS NDZ or a review of an UNDS determination or standard (see 33 U.S.C. 1322(n)). The information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the submission of any confidential information. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 127 hours per response. The estimates include time for gathering information, and preparing and submitting requests. 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; 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is captured in the following charts.

Introduction The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) gives notice of its intent to submit the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures (UGESP or Uniform Guidelines),1 without change, to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a three-year approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). A prior PRA document relating to the Uniform Guidelines entitled ‘‘Agency Information Collection Activities: Adoption of Additional Questions and Answers To Clarify and Provide a Common Interpretation of the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures as They Relate to the Internet and Related Technologies,’’ was published in the March 4, 2004 1 29 CFR part 1607, 41 CFR part 60–3, 28 CFR part 50, 5 CFR part 300. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Federal Register. 69 FR 10152. (‘‘March 4, 2004 PRA document’’). Based on the comments received to the March 4, 2004 PRA document, the EEOC does not intend to finalize the five additional Questions and Answers that include clarification of the definition of ‘‘applicant.’’ However, employers still must ensure that they are complying with the requirements of UGESP. The preamble of the March 4, 2004 PRA document stated that ‘‘[e]ach agency may provide further information, as appropriate, through the issuance of additional guidance or regulations that will allow each agency to carry out its specific enforcement responsibilities.’’ 69 FR 10153. The Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs then amended its regulations governing applicant recordkeeping requirements ‘‘in light of [its] unique use of applicant data for compliance monitoring and other enforcement purposes.’’ 70 FR 58946. In light of the EEOC’s unique enforcement responsibilities and priorities monitoring employment practices and detecting employment discrimination, it will determine, after further study, how and if it should issue further guidance or regulations clarifying Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act regarding when employers and job seekers use the Internet and related technologies. Request for Comments The EEOC invites comments enabling the agency to: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

What Information Collection Activity or ICR Does This Apply to?

    Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are 
State, local, and tribal governments.
    Title: Establishing No-Discharge Zones Under Clean Water Act 
section 312.
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR No. 1791.05, OMB Control No. 2040-0187.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2008.
    Abstract: (A) Sewage No-discharge Zones: The need for EPA to obtain 
information for the establishment of no-discharge zones (NDZs) for 
vessel sewage in State waters stems from CWA sections 312(f)(3), 
(f)(4)(A), and (f)(4)(B), and subsequent regulations at 40 CFR 
140.4(a)-(c). No-discharge zones are established to provide State and 
local governments with additional protection of waters from treated or 
untreated vessel sewage. There are three ways in which NDZs for vessel 
sewage can be established. This ICR discusses the information 
requirements associated with the establishment of NDZs for vessel 
sewage. The responses to this collection of information are required to 
obtain the benefit of a sewage NDZ (see 33 U.S.C. 1322). The 
information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require 
the submission of any confidential information.
    (B) UNDS No-discharge Zones: Under section 312(n) of the Clean 
Water Act (``Uniform National Discharge Standards for Vessels of the 
Armed Forces'' or ``UNDS'') no-discharge zones (``NDZs'') for 
discharges from Armed Forces vessels may be established by either State 
prohibition or EPA prohibition following the procedures in 40 CFR Part 
1700. UNDS also provides that the Governor of any State may petition 
EPA and the Secretary of Defense to review any determination or 
standard promulgated under the UNDS program if there is significant new 
information that could reasonably result in a change to the 
determination or standard. This ICR discusses the information that will 
be required from a State if it decides to establish a NDZ by State 
prohibition or apply for a NDZ by EPA prohibition, and the information 
that will be required from a State if it decides to submit a petition 
for review. The responses to this collection of information are 
required to obtain the benefit of an UNDS NDZ or a review of an UNDS 
determination or standard (see 33 U.S.C. 1322(n)). The information 
collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the 
submission of any confidential information.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 127 hours 
per response. The estimates include time for gathering information, and 
preparing and submitting requests. 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; 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.
    The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency's estimate, 
which is captured in the following charts.

Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval?

    Estimates have been updated with current state and federal labor 
costs.

What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR?

    EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as 
appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for 
review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will 
issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 
1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the 
opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any 
questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the 
technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
