Abstract: The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) section 7(a) requires that any person who produces pesticides or pesticide devices subject to the Act must register with the Administrator of EPA the establishment in which the pesticide or the device is produced. This section further requires that application for registration of any establishment shall include the name and address of the establishment and of the producer who operates such an establishment. EPA Form 3540–8, Application for Registration of Pesticide-Producing and Device-Producing Establishments, is used to collect the establishment registration information required by this section.

    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
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 and are displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such

    Abstract: The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act 
(FIFRA) section 7(a) requires that any person who produces pesticides 
or pesticide devices subject to the Act must register with the 
Administrator of EPA the establishment in which the pesticide or the 
device is produced. This section further requires that application for 
registration of any establishment shall include the name and address of 
the establishment and of the producer who operates such an 
establishment. EPA Form 3540-8, Application for Registration of 
Pesticide-Producing and Device-Producing Establishments, is used to 
collect the establishment registration information required by this 
section.
    FIFRA section 7(c) requires that any producer operating an 
establishment registered under section 7 report to the Administrator 
within 30 days after it is registered, and annually thereafter by March 
1st for certain pesticide/device production and sales/distribution 
information. The producers must report which types and amounts of 
pesticides, active ingredients, or devices are currently being 
produced, were produced during the past year, and sold or distributed 
in the past year. The supporting regulations at 40 CFR part 167 provide 
the requirements and time schedules for submitting production 
information. EPA Form 3540-16, Pesticide Report for Pesticide-Producing 
and Device-Producing Establishments, is used to collect the pesticide 
production information required by section 7(c) of FIFRA.
    Establishment registration information, collected on EPA Form 3540-
8, is a one-time requirement for all pesticide-producing and device-
producing establishments. Pesticide and device production information, 
reported on EPA Form 3540-16, is required to be submitted within 30 
days after the company is notified of their pesticide-producing or 
device-producing establishment number, and annually thereafter on or 
before March 1st.

Burden Statement

    The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this 
collection of information is estimated to average about 1.5 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: 13,250.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 13,250.
    Frequency of Response: Annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 19,158.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,415,159. There are no annualized 
capital or O&M costs associated with

this ICR since all equipment associated with this ICR is present as 
part of ordinary business practices.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 358 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is due to an adjustment in the 
estimates of the number of respondents.
