Coastal Elevations and Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee Charter Renewal, 32572 [E8-12599]

Download as PDF 32572 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 111 / Monday, June 9, 2008 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 66,394. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. Estimated total annual burden hours: 6,700 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $262,980.47. This includes an estimated burden cost of $262,980.47 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval? There is a decrease of 182 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. There are two reasons for this decrease in burden hours. In 2002, it was estimated that there would be 4,000 purchases of small containers of class I and class II refrigerant for resale only by uncertified purchasers. It is estimated that at the time (in 2002), there were an estimated 32 million R–12 MVACs on the road. Today, it is estimated that there are only 11 million R–12 MVACs on the road, or roughly 65% less than there were in 2002. Therefore, to account for the decreased market for small containers of CFC–12 refrigerant, this ICR estimates that the number of purchases for resale only by uncertified purchasers of small cans will be 65% less than in 2002, or 1,370 purchases. The second reason the burden hours have decreased is that the substantially identical equipment approval process is no longer applicable. This portion of Section 609(b)(2)(B) of the Act and 40 CFR 82.36(b) allowed for equipment that was purchased before the proposal of the regulations to be approved by EPA if it was substantially identical to equipment that had been certified by the VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:05 Jun 06, 2008 Jkt 214001 EPA or approved independent laboratory. The substantially identical equipment regulation only relates to CFC–12 recovery and recycling equipment initially purchased before September 4, 1991; CFC–12 recoveryonly equipment initially purchased before April 22, 1992; HFC–134a recovery and recycling, or recovery-only equipment initially purchased before March 6, 1996; equipment that recovers but does not recycle any single, specific refrigerant other than CFC–12 or HFC– 134a that was initially purchased before March 6, 1996; or equipment that recovers and recycles HFC–134a and CFC–12 refrigerant using common circuitry that was initially purchased before March 6, 1996. Because the average lifetime of such equipment is roughly 7 years, all such equipment is obsolete today. Therefore, documentation requirements related to this section have been removed from this ICR. In the previous ICR, 12 establishment burden hours and $1,200 annual costs were allocated to this activity. 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. Dated: June 2, 2008. Brian J. McLean, Director, Office of Atmospheric Programs. [FR Doc.
