Download as PDF 64316 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 29, 2008 / Notices Estimated Annual Costs: $6,564,165 exclusively in Labor cost; there are neither annualized capital/startup nor O&M costs associated with this ICR. Changes in the Estimates: Although the assumptions in the burden calculation for this ICR remain the same as in the previous ICR, there is a small change in the labor hours due to the correction of rounding errors. The assumptions remain the same as in the previous ICR due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 0660.10, OMB Control Number 2060– 0107. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on February 28, 2009. 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 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: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 60, subpart TT were proposed on January 5, 1981 and promulgated on November 1, 1982. These regulations apply to the following surface coating lines in the metal coil surface coating industry: each prime coat operation, each finish coat operation, and each prime and finish coat operation cured simultaneously where the finish coat is applied wet on wet over the prime coat. In general, all New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NSPS. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 41 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 E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 29, 2008 / Notices 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: Owners or operators of metal coil surface coating facilities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 158 Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and annually Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,643 Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,594,680, which is comprised of $331,800 in Operations and Maintenance (O&M) cost, $1,262,880 in annual labor costs, and no capital/ startup costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a change of $200 in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens since the O&M cost, which was previously rounded to the nearest thousand, has been actually reduced by $200.00.

This notice also announces the availability of EPA’s response to a petition from NRDC insofar as it seeks to have EPA cancel all uses of carbaryl under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Elsewhere in today’s Federal Register, EPA is publishing its response to NRDC’s petition insofar as it seeks to have EPA revoke all tolerances for carbaryl under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information A. Does this Action Apply to Me? This action is directed to the public in general, and may be of interest to a wide range of stakeholders including environmental, human health, and agricultural advocates; the chemical industry; pesticide users; and members of the public interested in the sale, distribution, or use of pesticides. Since others also may be interested, the Agency has not attempted to describe all the specific entities that may be affected by this action. If you have any questions regarding the applicability of this action to a particular entity, consult the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. B. How Can I Get Copies of this Document and Other Related Information? 1. Docket. EPA has established a docket for this action under docket identification (ID) number EPA–HQ– OPP–2007–0941. Publicly available docket materials are available either in the electronic docket at http:// www.regulations.gov, or, if only available in hard copy, at the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) Regulatory Public Docket in Rm.

You may access this Federal Register document electronically through the EPA Internet under the ‘‘Federal Register’’ listings at http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr. II. Background A. What Action is the Agency Taking? This notice announces the availability of an amendment to EPA’s Reregistration Eligibility Decision (RED) for Carbaryl. EPA is amending the carbaryl RED to incorporate the revised occupational exposure and risk assessment for carbaryl, which was not included in the September 2007 carbaryl RED. As a result, EPA is modifying certain worker risk mitigation measures that were imposed in the 2004 Interim RED for the pesticide carbaryl. Under section 4 of FIFRA, EPA is reevaluating existing pesticides to ensure that they meet current scientific and regulatory standards. In 2007, EPA issued a RED for carbaryl under section 4(g)(2)(A) of FIFRA. In 2004, EPA issued an interim RED for carbaryl. In response to a notice of availability published in the Federal Register of October 27, 2004 (69 FR 62663) (FRL–7679–9), the Agency received comments from the carbaryl registrant and others, including NRDC. This notice also announces the availability of EPA’s response to a petition submitted by NRDC insofar as the petition seeks to have EPA cancel all registrations for carbaryl. (EPA’s response to this petition is available in the carbaryl RED docket, EPA–HQ– OPP–2007–0941.) Elsewhere in today’s Federal Register, EPA is publishing its response to NRDC’s petition insofar as it seeks to have EPA revoke all tolerances for carbaryl under FFDCA. (See docket EPA–HQ–OPP–2008–0347.) B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? Section 4(g)(2) of FIFRA, as amended, directs that, after submission of all data concerning a pesticide active ingredient, ‘‘the Administrator shall determine whether pesticides containing such active ingredient are eligible for reregistration,’’ before calling in product-specific data on individual enduse products and either reregistering products or taking other ‘‘appropriate regulatory action.’’ E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1
