Download as PDF jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 30150 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 100 / Tuesday, May 24, 2011 / Notices nonindigenous species introductions to marine, estuarine, and freshwater ecosystems of the United States. Ballast water discharges are regulated by EPA under authority of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the U.S. Coast Guard under authority of the Nonindigenous Aquatic Nuisance Prevention and Control Act, as amended (NANPCA). Under the authority of the CWA, EPA’s Vessel General Permit requires the flushing and exchange of ballast water by vessels in Pacific-near-shore voyages and the saltwater flushing of ballast water tanks that are empty or contain only unpumpable residual ballast water. While useful in reducing the presence of potentially invasive organisms in ballast water, ballast water exchange and saltwater flushing can have variable effectiveness and may not always be feasible due to vessel safety concerns. EPA’s Office of Water has requested SAB review of technical documents and available data on the efficacy of ballast water treatment systems and advice on improving the performance of such systems. The SAB’s Ecological Processes and Effects Committee (EPEC) Augmented for the Ballast Water Advisory has conducted this review and developed the draft advisory entitled Efficacy of ballast water treatment systems; A Report by the EPA Science Advisory Board (May 2011 Draft). Background information about the SAB advisory activity, including its meetings and teleconferences, can be found on the SAB Web site at http:// yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/ fedrgstr_activites/BW%20discharge? OpenDocument. Availability of Meeting Materials: The agenda and other materials in support of the teleconference will be placed on the SAB Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab in advance of the teleconference. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for consideration by EPA’s federal advisory committees and panels has a different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. Members of the public can submit comments for a federal advisory committee to consider as it develops advice for EPA. Input from the public to the SAB will have the most impact if it provides specific scientific or technical information or analysis for SAB panels to consider or if it relates to the clarity or accuracy of the technical VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 May 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 information. Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the Designated Federal Officer directly. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a teleconference will be limited to three minutes. Those interested in being placed on the public speakers list for the June 9, 2011 teleconference should contact Ms. Sanzone at the contact information provided above no later than June 9, 2011. Written Statements: Written statements should be supplied to the DFO via e-mail at the contact information noted above by June 9, 2011 for the teleconference so that the information may be made available to the Panel members for their consideration. Written statements should be supplied in one of the following electronic formats: Adobe Acrobat PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM– PC/Windows 98/2000/XP format. It is the SAB Staff Office general policy to post written comments on the Web page for the advisory meeting or teleconference. Submitters are requested to provide an unsigned version of each document because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may be posted to the SAB Web site. Copyrighted material will not be posted without explicit permission of the copyright holder. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Ms. Sanzone (202) 564–2067 or sanzone.stephanie@ epa.gov. To request accommodation of a disability, please contact Ms. Sanzone preferably at least ten days prior to the teleconference to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. General Information The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is creating a Privacy Act system of records in support of its Light-Duty In-Use Vehicle Testing Program. The Clean Air Act requires manufacturers of motor vehicles and engines to design and build vehicles that will comply VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 May 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 with emissions standards throughout the vehicle’s life span. EPA is responsible for monitoring compliance and investigating possible noncompliance with this requirement. In order to fulfill this function, it is necessary for EPA to test actual ‘‘in-use’’ vehicles. This program uses motor vehicle registration information obtained from the Michigan Secretary of State to recruit volunteers who will allow their vehicles to be tested. The information that will be maintained regarding program participants includes: (1) Car owner’s name, address, phone number, and vehicle identification numbers (VIN); (2) owners’ response cards indicating willingness to participate or not; (3) owners’ description of their vehicles on the recruitment response card and telephone questionnaire; (4) notary statement for questionnaire; (5) owners’ optionally provided car maintenance records; (6) results of tests of vehicles recruited; and (7) vehicle release agreement, vehicle test agreement, loaner car agreement, cash incentives agreement (includes social security number for mandatory tax reporting purposes if cash incentive is greater than $600) and (8) cash receipt. The above information is contained in computer and paper files at EPA’s National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan. All information provided by the Secretary of State (vehicle owners’ names, addresses, vehicle identification numbers, vehicle make, model year, body style and weight/fee category) is governed by an approved security, privacy and personnel policy plan mandated by the State. The Plan includes provisions governing the entire information system with respect to computer security, prohibition and detection of any unauthorized access or use of personal information, employee agreements, annual review, notification of violations, system supervision requirements, and if necessary, disciplinary actions. Only contractor employees (governed by Privacy Act compliance terms in their contract) and EPA employees administering the program have access to the information provided by the Secretary of State, the questionnaire, maintenance records, and test results. Files containing personal information are kept in locked filing cabinets. Physical access to the filing cabinets is limited to authorized personnel employees with building key cards. All files are assigned a control number by which they are accessed. If the vehicle owner gives consent, the questionnaire (including the owner’s PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30151 name and address), maintenance records, and test results are shared with the vehicle manufacturer. This information is used by the manufacturer to participate in problem solving with the Agency when emissions compliance issues are raised by the test results and to contact the current owner for voluntary participation in the retest conducted by the manufacturer. Manufacturers already maintain VIN and original owner information in connection with warranty obligations and maintenance information if the service was performed in manufactureraffiliated repair shops. However, additional maintenance information voluntarily submitted by the owner to the Agency will be used to help identify the cause of emissions compliance issues. Dated: April 19, 2011. Malcolm D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. General Information

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is creating a Privacy Act 
system of records in support of its Light-Duty In-Use Vehicle Testing 
Program. The Clean Air Act requires manufacturers of motor vehicles and 
engines to design and build vehicles that will comply with emissions 
standards throughout the vehicle's life span. EPA is responsible for 
monitoring compliance and investigating possible noncompliance with 
this requirement. In order to fulfill this function, it is necessary 
for EPA to test actual ``in-use'' vehicles. This program uses motor 
vehicle registration information obtained from the Michigan Secretary 
of State to recruit volunteers who will allow their vehicles to be 
tested. The information that will be maintained regarding program 
participants includes: (1) Car owner's name, address, phone number, and 
vehicle identification numbers (VIN); (2) owners' response cards 
indicating willingness to participate or not; (3) owners' description 
of their vehicles on the recruitment response card and telephone 
questionnaire; (4) notary statement for questionnaire; (5) owners' 
optionally provided car maintenance records; (6) results of tests of 
vehicles recruited; and (7) vehicle release agreement, vehicle test 
agreement, loaner car agreement, cash incentives agreement (includes 
social security number for mandatory tax reporting purposes if cash 
incentive is greater than $600) and (8) cash receipt.
    The above information is contained in computer and paper files at 
EPA's National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, 
Michigan. All information provided by the Secretary of State (vehicle 
owners' names, addresses, vehicle identification numbers, vehicle make, 
model year, body style and weight/fee category) is governed by an 
approved security, privacy and personnel policy plan mandated by the 
State. The Plan includes provisions governing the entire information 
system with respect to computer security, prohibition and detection of 
any unauthorized access or use of personal information, employee 
agreements, annual review, notification of violations, system 
supervision requirements, and if necessary, disciplinary actions. Only 
contractor employees (governed by Privacy Act compliance terms in their 
contract) and EPA employees administering the program have access to 
the information provided by the Secretary of State, the questionnaire, 
maintenance records, and test results. Files containing personal 
information are kept in locked filing cabinets. Physical access to the 
filing cabinets is limited to authorized personnel employees with 
building key cards. All files are assigned a control number by which 
they are accessed. If the vehicle owner gives consent, the 
questionnaire (including the owner's name and address), maintenance 
records, and test results are shared with the vehicle manufacturer. 
This information is used by the manufacturer to participate in problem 
solving with the Agency when emissions compliance issues are raised by 
the test results and to contact the current owner for voluntary 
participation in the retest conducted by the manufacturer. 
Manufacturers already maintain VIN and original owner information in 
connection with warranty obligations and maintenance information if the 
service was performed in manufacturer-affiliated repair shops. However, 
additional maintenance information voluntarily submitted by the owner 
to the Agency will be used to help identify the cause of emissions 
compliance issues.

Innovative Strategies Division, National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions 
Laboratory, 2000 Traverwood, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48105.

Categories of Individuals Covered by the System:
    Individuals who volunteer to loan vehicles they own or lease for 
emissions standards testing at the National Vehicle and Emissions 
Laboratory.

Categories of Records in the System:
    (a) Car owner/lessee names, addresses, phone numbers, and vehicle 
identification numbers (VINs).
    (b) Owners' response cards.
    (c) Owners' description of vehicle on response cards and telephone 
questionnaires; notary statement for questionnaire; owner's car 
maintenance records (optional); results of tests on participating 
vehicles.
    (d) Vehicle release; vehicle test agreement; loaner car agreement, 
cash incentives agreement (includes social security number for 
mandatory tax reporting purposes if incentive is greater than $600) and

[[Page 30152]]

engines to design and build vehicles which will comply with emission 
standards throughout their lifespan. Pursuant to the Clean Air Act 
section 207 (42 U.S.C. 7541), EPA is responsible for monitoring 
compliance and investigating possible noncompliance with emission 
standards.

Purpose(s):
    The primary purpose of the system is to collect and maintain the 
information necessary to recruit vehicles of a particular class for 
testing. This includes information relevant to the testing of recruited 
vehicles, maintenance records (if volunteered by the participant), 
information from tests conducted on the vehicles, and documents 
necessary to administer the program (vehicle release, loaner agreement, 
cash receipt, etc.).

Routine Uses of Records Maintained in the System, Including Categories 
of Users, and the Purposes of Such Uses:
    General routine uses A, F, G, H, K and L apply to this system. (A 
detailed description of these routine uses can be found in the Agency's 
Systems of Records Web site at http://www.epa.gov/privacy/notice/general.htm.)
    In addition, the following routine uses may also apply:
    A. If the owner consents, maintenance records, questionnaire 
answers, and test results are disclosed to the manufacturer of the 
owner's vehicle. This information may be used by the manufacturer and 
EPA to help clarify the test-related issues.
    B. Manufacturers may, on occasion, use this information to contact 
a vehicle owner to request voluntary participation in a manufacturer-
conducted retest.
    C. IRS Form 21099 is filed with the IRS as required for payments of 
$600 or more. The information provided on the form includes the 
recipient's name, address, and social security number.

Policies and Practices for Storing, Retrieving, Accessing, Retaining, 
and Disposing of Records in the System:
     Storage: Information from the Michigan Secretary of State 
is received on diskette and stored on a computer. All subsequent data 
is received and stored as paper files.
     Retrievability: All data are retrieved by a control number 
that is assigned to each participant at the initiation of the vehicle 
recruitment process.
     Safeguards:
    --Computer-stored information is protected in accordance with the 
Agency's security requirements.
    --Access to the information in the system is limited to authorized 
Agency and contractor personnel who administer the program. No external 
access to the system is provided. A subset of the information may be 
shared with manufacturers in accordance with the vehicle owner's prior 
consent.
