FIFRA section 24(c) authorizes the States to register additional uses of federally registered pesticides for distribution and use within the State to meet a special local need (SLN). A State-issued registration under FIFRA section 24(c) is deemed a federal registration for the purposes of the pesticide’s use within the State’s boundaries. A State must notify EPA, in writing, of any action it takes, i.e., when it issues, amends, or revokes a State registration. The Agency has 90 days to disapprove the registration. In such cases, the State is responsible for notifying the affected registrant. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 49,500 hours annually for state government ‘‘applicants’’ for the FIFRA section 18 program and for applicants under the FIFRA section 24(c) an annual estimate of 23,400 hours, a combined total of 72,900 burden hours annually. The consolidated ICR, a copy of which is available in the docket, provides a detailed explanation of this estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 950. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. Estimated total annual burden hours: 72,900 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $4,599,290. This ICR does not involve any capital investiment or maintenance and operational costs. V. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approvals? The consolidation of these ICRs will not result in a change of the 72,900 hours in the total estimated combined respondent burden that is currently approved by OMB. hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES VI. What is the Next Step in the Process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the consolidated 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 for the public to submit additional comments for OMB consideration.
