Download as PDF jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 126 / Monday, June 30, 2008 / Notices motor vehicles and non-road engines, as defined in the CAA. Motor vehicles and non-road engines not meeting the applicable definitions are excluded from compliance with current regulations. A manufacturer may make an exclusion determination by itself; however, manufacturers and importers may routinely request EPA to make such determination to ensure that their determination does not differ from the Agency’s. To request an exclusion determination, manufacturers submit a letter with a description of the engine and/or vehicle (engine type, horsepower rating, intended usage etc.,) and sales brochures, to the Compliance and Innovative Strategies Division (CISD), Heavy-Duty and Nonroad Engines Group (HDNEG), Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ). CISD uses this information to determine whether the engine or vehicle is excluded from compliance with one or more emission regulations. CISD then stores the data in its internal files, and makes it available to environmental groups and the public upon request under the Freedom of Information Act. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average seven 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 12. Frequency of response: Annual or on occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 3. Estimated total annual burden hours: 69. Estimated total annual costs: $5,654. This includes an estimated burden cost of $5,538 and an estimated cost of $116 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jun 27, 2008 Jkt 214001 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approval? To date, there are no changes in the number of hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. However, EPA is still evaluating information that may lead to a change in the estimates. What Is the Next Step in the Process for These ICRs? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICRs as appropriate. The final ICR packages 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 18, 2008. Karl Simon, Director, Compliance and Innovative Strategies Division, Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Office of Air and Radiation. [FR Doc.
