The total paperwork related labor cost for the entire industry (Non-liquid alternative fuels) is approximately $26,647 ($24,279 for certification and labeling costs + $2,368 for recordkeeping costs). AFV manufacturers: The maximum labor cost for the entire industry (AFV manufacturers) is approximately $1,128,370 per year for recordkeeping and producing and posting labels (37,388 hours × $30.18/ hour). Thus, the estimated total labor cost for both industries for all paperwork requirements is $1,155,017 ($26,647 + $1,128,370) per year, rounded. (3) Estimated annual non-labor cost burden: $426,251 rounded (includes both Non-liquid Alternative Fuels and AFV Manufacturers). Non-liquid Alternative Fuels: Staff believes that there are no current start-up costs associated with the Rule, inasmuch as the Rule has been effective since 1995.

However, based on the labeling of an estimated 1,121,153 new and used AFVs each year at thirty-eight cents for each label (per industry sources), the annual AFV labeling cost is estimated to be $426,038.14 ($0.38 × 1,121,153).
