Title: Notification of Regulated Waste Activity and 2009 Hazardous Waste Report. ICR Numbers: EPA ICR No. 0976.14, OMB Control No. 2050–0024. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 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, 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 in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: This ICR combines two separate ICRs into one: The biennial ‘‘Hazardous Waste Report’’ ICR and the ‘‘Notification of Regulated Waste Activities’’ ICR. Both sections 3002 and 3004 of RCRA require EPA to establish standards for recordkeeping and reporting of hazardous waste generation and management. Section 3002 applies to hazardous waste generators, and section 3004 applies to hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities. The implementing regulations are found at 40 CFR 262.40(b) and (d); 262.41(a)(1)–(5), (a)(8), and (b); 264.75(a)–(e) and (j); 265.75(a)–(e) and (j); and 270.30(l)(9). This is mandatory reporting by the respondents. This collection is done on a two-year cycle as required by Sections 3002 and 3004 of RCRA. The information is collected via a mechanism known as the Hazardous Waste Report for the required reporting year (EPA Form 8700–13 A/B). This form is also known as the Biennial Report form. The beginning part of the Hazardous Waste Report form is the RCRA subtitle C Site Identification Form (EPA Form 8700–12). This form is also a stand alone form which is used to comply with section 3010 of RCRA, which requires any person who generates or transports regulated waste or who owns or operates a facility for the treatment, storage, or disposal of regulated waste to notify EPA of their activities, including the location and general description of activities and the regulated wastes PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 handled. This form is also known as the Notification form. EPA has revised the Hazardous Waste Report form this cycle, particularly the RCRA subtitle C Site Identification portion, because of recent promulgated rules affecting the RCRA universe, as well as ongoing efforts by the Agency and States to improve the forms and their instructions. Burden Statement: The reporting burden for the 2009 Hazardous Waste Report is estimated to average 16.63 hours per respondent, and includes time for reviewing instructions, gathering data, completing and reviewing the forms, and submitting the report. The recordkeeping requirement is estimated to average 3.97 hours per response and includes the time for filing and storing the 2009 Hazardous Waste Report submission for three years. The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for the Notification of Regulated Waste Activity is estimated to average 2 hours per response for the initial notification, and 1 hour per response for any subsequent notifications. 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: Entities potentially affected by this action are businesses or other for-profits as well as State, Local, or Tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 56,763. Frequency of Response: Biennially. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 422,133 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $16,510,025, includes $16,309,358 annualized labor costs and $200,667 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 263,063 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. E:\FR\FM\15OCN1.SGM 15OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 198 / Thursday, October 15, 2009 / Notices The decrease in respondent burden for Notification of Regulated Waste Activity has occurred for two primary reasons. First, there was a decrease in the estimated total number of notifications under RCRA section 3010; 40 CFR part 273, subpart C; and 40 CFR part 279. Second, the burden associated with the notification activities decreased because of adjustments made to the hourly burden estimates for the Site ID Form. In addition, adjustments were made to the hourly burden estimates for the Site ID Form to take into account the option given to respondents in the Site ID Form’s instructions to use their most recently submitted form in making a subsequent notification. These optional procedures relieve them of the need to complete the form in its entirety. These adjustments do not reflect any change in requirements; they represent instead a more accurate representation of the burden that respondents will incur as a result of this information collection. The decrease in respondent burden and State agency burden estimates for the Hazardous Waste Report occurred because there was a decrease in the projected number of respondents and Hazardous Waste Report forms.

    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 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

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: This ICR combines two separate ICRs into one: The 
biennial ``Hazardous Waste Report'' ICR and the ``Notification of 
Regulated Waste Activities'' ICR.
    Both sections 3002 and 3004 of RCRA require EPA to establish 
standards for recordkeeping and reporting of hazardous waste generation 
and management. Section 3002 applies to hazardous waste generators, and 
section 3004 applies to hazardous waste treatment, storage, and 
disposal facilities. The implementing regulations are found at 40 CFR 
262.40(b) and (d); 262.41(a)(1)-(5), (a)(8), and (b); 264.75(a)-(e) and 
(j); 265.75(a)-(e) and (j); and 270.30(l)(9). This is mandatory 
reporting by the respondents. This collection is done on a two-year 
cycle as required by Sections 3002 and 3004 of RCRA. The information is 
collected via a mechanism known as the Hazardous Waste Report for the 
required reporting year (EPA Form 8700-13 A/B). This form is also known 
as the Biennial Report form.
    The beginning part of the Hazardous Waste Report form is the RCRA 
subtitle C Site Identification Form (EPA Form 8700-12). This form is 
also a stand alone form which is used to comply with section 3010 of 
RCRA, which requires any person who generates or transports regulated 
waste or who owns or operates a facility for the treatment, storage, or 
disposal of regulated waste to notify EPA of their activities, 
including the location and general description of activities and the 
regulated wastes handled. This form is also known as the Notification 
form.
    EPA has revised the Hazardous Waste Report form this cycle, 
particularly the RCRA subtitle C Site Identification portion, because 
of recent promulgated rules affecting the RCRA universe, as well as 
ongoing efforts by the Agency and States to improve the forms and their 
instructions.
    Burden Statement: The reporting burden for the 2009 Hazardous Waste 
Report is estimated to average 16.63 hours per respondent, and includes 
time for reviewing instructions, gathering data, completing and 
reviewing the forms, and submitting the report. The recordkeeping 
requirement is estimated to average 3.97 hours per response and 
includes the time for filing and storing the 2009 Hazardous Waste 
Report submission for three years.
    The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for the 
Notification of Regulated Waste Activity is estimated to average 2 
hours per response for the initial notification, and 1 hour per 
response for any subsequent notifications.
    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: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are businesses or other for-profits as well as State, 
Local, or Tribal governments.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 56,763.
    Frequency of Response: Biennially.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 422,133 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $16,510,025, includes $16,309,358 
annualized labor costs and $200,667 annualized capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 263,063 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens.

[[Page 52963]]

    The decrease in respondent burden for Notification of Regulated 
Waste Activity has occurred for two primary reasons. First, there was a 
decrease in the estimated total number of notifications under RCRA 
section 3010; 40 CFR part 273, subpart C; and 40 CFR part 279. Second, 
the burden associated with the notification activities decreased 
because of adjustments made to the hourly burden estimates for the Site 
ID Form. In addition, adjustments were made to the hourly burden 
estimates for the Site ID Form to take into account the option given to 
respondents in the Site ID Form's instructions to use their most 
recently submitted form in making a subsequent notification. These 
optional procedures relieve them of the need to complete the form in 
its entirety. These adjustments do not reflect any change in 
requirements; they represent instead a more accurate representation of 
the burden that respondents will incur as a result of this information 
collection.
    The decrease in respondent burden and State agency burden estimates 
for the Hazardous Waste Report occurred because there was a decrease in 
the projected number of respondents and Hazardous Waste Report forms.
