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 this estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4,190. Frequency of response: Once every five years. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1.0. Estimated total annual burden hours: 432,274 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $19,400,000. This includes an estimated burden cost of $19,400,000 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES IV. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approval? There is an increase of 18,699 hours (from 413,575 hours to 432,274 hours) in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR most recently approved by OMB. In the 2006 Inventory Update Rule (IUR) collection covered by the previous ICR, inorganic chemical were partially exempt and therefore, manufacturers (including importers) of inorganic chemicals completed only partial reports. However, in subsequent reporting periods, including the period covered by this ICR, manufacturers (including importers) of inorganic chemicals must complete full reports when the site-specific production volume is 300,000 pounds or more. Full reports are estimated to take an additional 85 hours to complete. This represents a program change. EPA used data reported to the 2006 IUR collection to estimate numbers of respondents. Total sites reporting are estimated to be 4,190 for this collection. In the previous ICR, the number of sites responding was estimated to be 3,026 sites. This re-estimate is another reason for the change in burden hours. This change is an adjustment. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:40 Sep 04, 2008 Jkt 214001 V. 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. 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.

    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA specifically 
solicits comments and information to enable it to:
    (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden 
of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of 
the methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and
    (iv) 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. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from 
very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of 
specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork 
burden for very small businesses affected by this collection.

    You may find the following suggestions helpful for preparing your 
comments:
    1. Explain your views as clearly as possible and provide specific 
examples.
    2. Describe any assumptions that you used.
    3. Provide copies of any technical information and/or data you used 
that support your views.
    4. If you estimate potential burden or costs, explain how you 
arrived at the estimate that you provide.
    5. Offer alternative ways to improve the collection activity.
    6. Make sure to submit your comments by the deadline identified 
under DATES.
    7. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, be sure to identify the docket 
ID number assigned to this action in the subject line on the first page 
of your response. You may also provide the name, date, and Federal 
Register citation.

What Information Collection Activity or ICR Does This Apply to?

    Affected entities: EPA assumes that industrial waste units that 
previously co-disposed non-hazardous wastes and conditionally exempt 
small quantity generator (CESQG) hazardous waste on-site have ceased 
that practice and that commercial off-site industrial waste units are 
operating with stringent environmental controls in place. Therefore, 
entities that potentially will be affected by this action are limited 
to those that dispose of CESQG hazardous wastes in construction and 
demolition (C&D) waste landfills.
    Title: Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed 
Collection; Comment Request; Criteria for Classification of Solid Waste 
Disposal Facilities and Practices, Recordkeeping andReporting 
Requirements--40 CFR Part 257, Subpart B.
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1745.06, OMB Control No. 2050-0154.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on January 
31, 2009. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays 
a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's 
regulations in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal 
Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed 
either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate 
means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if 
applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA 
regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: In order to effectively implement and enforce final 
changes to 40 CFR Part 257--Subpart B on a State level, owners/
operators of construction and demolition waste landfills that receive 
CESQG hazardous wastes will have to comply with the final reporting and 
recordkeeping requirements. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a 
person is not required to respond to, a collection of information 
unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB 
control number for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 
CFR chapter 15. This continuing ICR documents the recordkeeping and 
reporting burdens associated with the location and ground-water 
monitoring provisions contained in 40 CFR Part 257--Subpart B.
    The EPA would like to solicit comments to:
    (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden 
of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of 
the methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and
    (iv) 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.
    Burden Statement: 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. Burden for this collection of information is estimated to 
average 74 hours per response.
