Download as PDF sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES 61678 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 226 / Wednesday, November 25, 2009 / Notices generally conducted by the states, who enforce FIFRA regulations through cooperative agreements with EPA. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 7.4 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR include pesticide registrants and businesses who formulate pesticide products or pesticide formulation intermediates (NAICS code 325320), farm supply wholesalers (NAICS code 422910), swimming pool applicators (classified under NAICS codes 561790, 453998, and 235990), and agricultural (aerial and ground) commercial applicators (classified under NAICS code 115112). Estimated Number of Respondents: 23,586. This includes 1,804 registrant facilities, 16,795 agricultural pesticide refillers, 322 swimming pool supply companies, and 4,665 facilities requiring secondary containment. Frequency of Response: On occasion. There is no regular reporting involved. This ICR only involves recordkeeping requirements. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 174,550.5 hours. This includes 139,563 hours for container design and residue removal requirements and 34,987.5 hours for containment structure requirements. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $6,124,953. This includes $4,902,723 for container design and residue removal requirements and $1,222,230 for containment structure requirements. Changes in the Estimates: The renewal of this ICR will result in an overall increase of 122,493.5 hours in the total estimated respondent burden identified in the currently approved ICR. When the information collection associated with this ICR was approved VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:36 Nov 24, 2009 Jkt 220001 in 2006, the burden hours were adjusted to reflect only the burden associated with initial rule familiarization and state requests to use their containment regulations in lieu of Federal regulations—a total of 52,057 hours. These were the only burdens that were imposed by the pesticide container and containment regulations during the course of that approval. EPA was instructed to revise the estimates, upon resubmission, to reflect the burden imposed in 2009 and beyond because of compliance with the requirements. Dated: November 18, 2009.
