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. All existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Paper and other Web coating manufacturers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 215. Frequency of Response: Initially, monthly, semiannually, and occasionally. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 11,312. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,765,629, which is comprised of $913,229 in Labor costs, $233,500 in capital/startup costs and O&M costs of $618,900. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Secondly, the current growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. It should be noted that there is a correction to labor cost. We also rounded-up the cost figures to the nearest dollar. Dated: April 13, 2009.

Certain New Chemicals; Receipt and Status Information

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) requires 
any person who intends to manufacture (defined by statute to include 
import) a new chemical (i.e., a chemical not on the TSCA Inventory) to 
notify EPA and comply with the statutory provisions pertaining to the 
manufacture of new chemicals. Under sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3) of 
TSCA, EPA is required to publish a notice of receipt of a 
premanufacture notice (PMN) or an application for a test marketing 
exemption (TME), and to publish periodic status reports on the 
chemicals under review and the receipt of notices of commencement to 
manufacture those chemicals. This status report, which covers the 
period from March 1, 2009 through March 20, 2009, consists of the PMNs 
and TME, both pending or expired, and the notices of commencement to 
manufacture a new chemical that the Agency has received under TSCA 
section 5 during this time period.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

A. Does this Action Apply to Me?

    This action is directed to the public in general. As such, the 
Agency has not attempted to describe the specific entities that this 
action may apply to. Although others may be affected, this action 
applies directly to the submitter of the premanufacture notices 
addressed in the 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. What Should I Consider as I Prepare My Comments for EPA?

     1. Submitting CBI. Do not submit this information to EPA through 
regulations.gov or e-mail. Clearly mark the part or all of the 
information that you claim to be CBI. For CBI information in a disk or 
CD-ROM that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM 
that you mail to EPA, mark the outside of the disk or CD-ROM as CBI and 
then identify electronically within the disk or CD-ROM the specific 
information that is claimed as CBI. In addition to one complete version 
of the comment that includes information claimed as CBI, a copy of the 
comment that does not contain the information claimed as CBI must be 
submitted for inclusion in the public docket. Information so marked 
will not be disclosed except in accordance with procedures set forth in 
40 CFR part 2.
     2. Tips for preparing your comments. When submitting comments, 
remember to:
     i. Identify the document by docket ID number and other identifying 
information (subject heading, Federal Register date and page number).
     ii. Follow directions. The Agency may ask you to respond to 
specific questions or organize comments by referencing a Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) part or section number.
     iii. Explain why you agree or disagree; suggest alternatives and 
substitute language for your requested changes.
     iv. Describe any assumptions and provide any technical information 
and/or data that you used.
     v. If you estimate potential costs or burdens, explain how you 
arrived at your estimate in sufficient detail to allow for it to be 
reproduced.
     vi. Provide specific examples to illustrate your concerns and 
suggest alternatives.
     vii. Explain your views as clearly as possible, avoiding the use 
of profanity or personal threats.
     viii. Make sure to submit your comments by the comment period 
deadline identified.

II. Why is EPA Taking this Action?

    Section 5 of TSCA requires any person who intends to manufacture 
(defined by statute to include import) a new chemical (i.e., a chemical 
not on the TSCA Inventory to notify EPA and comply with the statutory 
provisions pertaining to the manufacture of new chemicals. Under 
sections 5(d)(2) and 5(d)(3) of TSCA, EPA is required to publish a 
notice of receipt of a PMN or an application for a TME and to publish 
periodic status reports on the chemicals under review and the receipt 
of notices of commencement to manufacture those chemicals. This status 
report, which covers the period from March 1, 2009 through March 20, 
2009, consists of the PMNs and TME, both pending or expired, and the 
notices of commencement to manufacture a new chemical that the Agency 
has received under TSCA section 5 during this time period.

III. Receipt and Status Report for PMNs

    This status report identifies the PMNs and TME, both pending or 
expired, and the notices of commencement to manufacture a new chemical 
that the Agency has received under TSCA section 5 during this time 
period. If you are interested in information that is not included in 
the following tables, you may contact EPA as described in Unit I. to 
access additional non-CBI information that may be available.
    In Table I of this unit, EPA provides the following information (to 
the extent that such information is not claimed as CBI) on the PMNs 
received by EPA during this period: the EPA case number assigned to the 
PMN; the date the PMN was received by EPA; the projected end date for 
EPA's review of the PMN; the submitting manufacturer; the potential 
uses identified by the manufacturer in the PMN; and the chemical 
identity.
