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. IV. What ICR Does this Request Apply to? Title: Pesticide Registration Fees Program. ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2330.01, OMB Control No. 2070–new. ICR status: This ICR reflects the consolidation of the following currently approved ICRs: ‘‘Product Registration Maintenance Fees’’ (EPA ICR No. 1214.07, OMB Control No. 2070–0100; scheduled to expire on November 30, 2010) and ‘‘Pesticide Registration Fee Waivers (PRIA)’’ (EPA ICR No. 2147.03, OMB Control No. 2070–0167; scheduled to expire on October 31, 2010). Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are pesticide registrants holding currently active registrations under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) section 3 and section 24(c), which are subject to this information collection activity. These include pesticide companies and state governments, which may be identified by pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing (North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code 325320) and regulation of agricultural marketing and commodities (NAICS code 9641). Abstract: The proposed consolidation information collection reports the paperwork burden hours and costs for State initiated under either Pesticide Registration Fee Waivers (PRIA) or Pesticide Product Registration Maintenance Fee. PRIA authorizes EPA to process requests for waivers of fees. The ICR covers the collection activities associated with requesting a fee waiver and involves requesters submitting a waiver request, information to demonstrate eligibility for the waiver, and certification of eligibility. Waivers are available for small businesses, for minor uses, and for actions solely associated with the Inter-Regional VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Dec 09, 2008 Jkt 217001 Project Number 4 (IR–4). State and Federal agencies are exempt from the payment of fees. Maintenance fees are collected from pesticides registrants as required by law. Respondents complete and submit EPA Form 8570–30 indicating the respondent’s liability for the registration maintenance fee. Annually the Agency provides registrants a list of the registered products currently registered with the Agency. Registrants are provided the opportunity to review the list, determine its accuracy, and remit payment of maintenance fee. The list of products has space identified for making those products to be supported and those products that are to be cancelled. The registrants are also instructed to identify any products on the list which they believe to be transferred to another company and to add to the list any products which the company believes to be registered that are not the Agency-provided list. The failure to pay the required fee for a product will result in cancellation of that product’s registration. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average a combined 2,109 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: 2,109. Frequency of response: Annual. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. Estimated total annual burden hours: 10,013 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $647,703. This ICR does not involve any capital investment 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 10,013 hours in the total estimated combined respondent burden that is currently approved by OMB. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 additional comments for OMB consideration.

Title: Notice of Pesticide Registration by States to Meet a Special Local Need (SLN) under FIFRA Section 24(c). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 0595.10, OMB Control No. 2070–0055. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on August 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 Code of Federal Regulations (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 for certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: This data collection program is designed to provide EPA with the necessary data to review approval of State-issued pesticide registrations. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (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 SLN. A State- E:\FR\FM\10DEN1.SGM 10DEN1 75096 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 238 / Wednesday, December 10, 2008 / Notices 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. Pursuant to subpart D of 40 CFR part 162, reponses to this collection of information are mandatory. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 52 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 this estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 60. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 11–12. Estimated total annual burden hours: 35,828 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $2,383,251. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES IV. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approval? There is an increase of 12,428 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects the increase in average annual number of applications from 2005–2007. This change is an adjustment. 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Dec 09, 2008 Jkt 217001 1320.12.

to?

    Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are 
state and territorial government involved in issuing pesticide 
registrations (e.g., administration of air and water resources and 
solid waste management programs (North American Industrial 
Classification System (NAICS) code 92411). This listing is not intended 
to be exhaustive, but rather provides a guide for readers regarding 
entities likely to be affected by this action. Other types of entities 
not listed above could also be affected. The NAICS code has been 
provided to assist you and others in determining whether this action 
might apply to certain entities. To determine whether you or your 
business may be affected by this action, you should carefully examine 
the provisions in 40 CFR 162.150.
    Title: Notice of Pesticide Registration by States to Meet a Special 
Local Need (SLN) under FIFRA Section 24(c).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 0595.10, OMB Control No. 2070-0055.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on August 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 Code of Federal Regulations (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 
for certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: This data collection program is designed to provide EPA 
with the necessary data to review approval of State-issued pesticide 
registrations. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act 
(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 SLN. A State-

[[Page 75096]]

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. 
Pursuant to subpart D of 40 CFR part 162, reponses to this collection 
of information are mandatory.
    Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 52 
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 this estimate, which is 
only briefly summarized here:
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 60.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 
11-12.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 35,828 hours.
    Estimated total annual costs: $2,383,251.

IV. Are There Changes in the Estimates from the Last Approval?

    There is an increase of 12,428 hours in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase reflects the increase in average annual 
number of applications from 2005-2007. This change is an adjustment.

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. If you have any questions about this ICR or 
the approval process, please contact the person listed under FOR
