Download as PDF 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. 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 FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR Part 9. Abstract: EPA launched the National Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign (SC3) Program in March of 2007. The SC3 Program uses a variety of innovative approaches to achieve three goals: (1) Removal of outdated and dangerous chemicals from K–12 schools; (2) prevention of future accumulations of chemicals and reduction of accidents by establishing prevention activities such as good purchasing and management practices; and, (3) raising national awareness of the problem. One of the ways that EPA accomplishes its goals under SC3 is by partnering with organizations that volunteer to assist schools in the management of the schools’ chemicals and the removal of schools’ chemical waste. There are currently eleven Partners. EPA intends to conduct a voluntary survey of Partners each year to learn about their experiences and needs under the Program. EPA has created two survey forms for this purpose: an Initial Survey and an Annual Update. The Initial Survey will be completed by Partners who are participating in the SC3 Survey for their first time. It is designed to give EPA a general idea of a Partner’s background, accomplishments, and needs under SC3. Partners will complete the Annual Update in each subsequent year of their partnership. The Annual Update is designed to describe a Partner’s accomplishments and needs since the previous year’s survey. Partners can submit completed surveys by e-mail, postal mail, special delivery, or fax. EPA will use the survey data to further develop and improve the Program (e.g., improve its outreach efforts, encourage greater participation, and address resource needs of Partners) and communicate with the public (e.g., share Partners’ success stories at the SC3 Web site). In addition, EPA is interested in promoting the responsible management of chemicals in K–12 schools. To this VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:49 Dec 09, 2008 Jkt 217001 end, EPA intends to hold three focus groups as part of an effort to gather information about the extent to which colleges and universities are teaching pre-service teachers about responsible chemical management. If EPA finds that a need exists to promote pre-service teacher training on responsible chemical management, EPA will gather feedback from the focus groups for the development and promotion of a curriculum on responsible chemical management that can serve as a model for colleges and universities. Each focus group will consist of up to nine individuals from industry, educational institutions (e.g., faculty, students), and governmental agencies. During the focus groups, EPA will raise questions and collect feedback from focus group members. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for the SC3 Survey is estimated to range from 45 minutes to one hour per respondent. This includes time to complete and submit the survey and respond to EPA’s follow-up questions, if any. There is no recordkeeping burden. The annual public reporting burden for the focus groups is estimated to be three hours per respondent. This includes time to attend and participate in the focus group. There is no recordkeeping burden. 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.

    Abstract: EPA launched the National Schools Chemical Cleanout 
Campaign (SC3) Program in March of 2007. The SC3 Program uses a variety 
of innovative approaches to achieve three goals: (1) Removal of 
outdated and dangerous chemicals from K-12 schools; (2) prevention of 
future accumulations of chemicals and reduction of accidents by 
establishing prevention activities such as good purchasing and 
management practices; and, (3) raising national awareness of the 
problem.
    One of the ways that EPA accomplishes its goals under SC3 is by 
partnering with organizations that volunteer to assist schools in the 
management of the schools' chemicals and the removal of schools' 
chemical waste. There are currently eleven Partners.
    EPA intends to conduct a voluntary survey of Partners each year to 
learn about their experiences and needs under the Program. EPA has 
created two survey forms for this purpose: an Initial Survey and an 
Annual Update. The Initial Survey will be completed by Partners who are 
participating in the SC3 Survey for their first time. It is designed to 
give EPA a general idea of a Partner's background, accomplishments, and 
needs under SC3. Partners will complete the Annual Update in each 
subsequent year of their partnership. The Annual Update is designed to 
describe a Partner's accomplishments and needs since the previous 
year's survey. Partners can submit completed surveys by e-mail, postal 
mail, special delivery, or fax. EPA will use the survey data to further 
develop and improve the Program (e.g., improve its outreach efforts, 
encourage greater participation, and address resource needs of 
Partners) and communicate with the public (e.g., share Partners' 
success stories at the SC3 Web site).
    In addition, EPA is interested in promoting the responsible 
management of chemicals in K-12 schools. To this end, EPA intends to 
hold three focus groups as part of an effort to gather information 
about the extent to which colleges and universities are teaching pre-

that a need exists to promote pre-service teacher training on 
responsible chemical management, EPA will gather feedback from the 
focus groups for the development and promotion of a curriculum on 
responsible chemical management that can serve as a model for colleges 
and universities.
    Each focus group will consist of up to nine individuals from

    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for the SC3 
Survey is estimated to range from 45 minutes to one hour per 
respondent. This includes time to complete and submit the survey and 
respond to EPA's follow-up questions, if any. There is no recordkeeping 
burden. The annual public reporting burden for the focus groups is 
estimated to be three hours per respondent. This includes time to 
attend and participate in the focus group. There is no recordkeeping 
burden. 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: Organizations that volunteer to 
partner with EPA under the SC3 Program.
    Estimated Average Annual Number of Respondents: 42.
    Frequency of Response: Annually or one-time.
    Estimated Total Aggregate Annual Respondent Hour Burden: 56 hours.
    Estimated Total Aggregate Annual Respondent Cost: $2,910. This 
includes an estimated labor cost of $2,896 and operation and 
maintenance cost of $14. There are no capital costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: This is a new ICR. The annual burden of 
56 hours reflects the time for respondents to participate in EPA's SC3 
Survey and focus groups.
