Title: Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program (Renewal) ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1596.08, OMB Control No. 2060–0226. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 2011. 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, and 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: Information collected under this rulemaking is necessary to implement the requirements of the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program for evaluating and regulating substitutes for ozonedepleting chemicals being phased out under the stratospheric ozone protection provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and globally under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Under CAA Section 612, EPA is authorized to identify and restrict the use of substitutes for class I and class II ozone-depleting substances where EPA determines other alternatives exist that reduce overall risk to human health and the environment. The SNAP program, based on information collected from the manufacturers, formulators, and/or sellers of such substitutes, identifies acceptable substitutes. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory under Section 612 for anyone who sells or, in certain cases, uses substitutes for an ozone-depleting substance after April 18, 1994, the effective date of the final rule. Measures to protect confidentiality of information collected under the SNAP program are based on EPA’s confidentiality regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq., or Subpart B). Submitters may designate all or portions of their forms or petitions as confidential. EPA PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 36915 requires the submitters to substantiate their claim of confidentiality. Under CAA Section 114(c), emissions information may not be claimed as confidential. To develop the lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes, the Agency must assess and compare ‘‘overall risks to human health and the environment’’ posed by use of substitutes in the context of particular applications. EPA requires submission of information covering a wide range of health and environmental factors. These include intrinsic properties such as physical and chemical information, ozone depleting potential, global warming potential, toxicity, and flammability, and usespecific data such as substitute applications, process description, environmental release data, exposure data during use of a substitute, environmental fate and transport, and cost information. Once a completed submission has been received, a 90 day review period under the SNAP program will commence. Any substitute which is a new chemical must also be submitted to the Agency through a Premanufacture Notice under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Alternatives that will be used as sterilants must be filed jointly with EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs and with SNAP. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 30 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: manufacturers, importers, formulators and processors of substitutes for ozonedepleting substances. Estimated Number of Respondents: 221. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,683. E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1 36916 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 121 / Thursday, June 23, 2011 / Notices Estimated Total Annual Cost: $476,742, which includes $22,281 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,521 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This is due to changes in EPA’s estimates of the burden hours and number of respondents fulfilling reporting and record-keeping requirements. The development of new substitutes resulted in a greater number of persons filing a SNAP Information Notice or TSCA/SNAP Addendum to increase slightly, but also resulted in fewer respondents keeping records for alternatives that are subject to use conditions or narrowed use limits. In addition, respondents filing a SNAP Information Notice reported a decrease in total annual burden of hours when collecting data to complete the form and when responding to requests for additional information. This decrease may be attributable to increased respondent familiarity with EPA’s forms, more examples in the public record for respondents to research and use in preparing responses, and general increased availability of computer software and information via the Internet.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: EPA’s voluntary WasteWise program encourages businesses and other organizations to reduce solid waste through waste prevention, recycling, and the purchase or manufacture of recycled-content products. WasteWise participants include partners who commit to implementing waste reduction activities tailored to their specific needs, and endorsers who promote WasteWise and recruit organizations to join the program. WasteWise requires partners to register for membership in the program. Previously, WasteWise used paper forms that we estimate took 40 hours for partners and 10 hours for endorsers to complete. In 2009, WasteWise implemented a web-based data management and reporting system for the collection and reporting of data. Under the new web-based system, partners and endorsers enter their data on-line. The Partner Registration Form identifies an organization and its facilities registering to participate in WasteWise, and requires the signature of a senior official that can commit the organization to the program. (This form is completed on-line and is submitted electronically.) Within two months of registering, each partner is required to submit baseline data on existing waste reduction programs to EPA via an E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1

    Abstract: Information collected under this rulemaking is necessary 
to implement the requirements of the Significant New Alternatives 
Policy (SNAP) program for evaluating and regulating substitutes for 
ozone-depleting chemicals being phased out under the stratospheric 
ozone protection provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and globally 
under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. 
Under CAA Section 612, EPA is authorized to identify and restrict the 
use of substitutes for class I and class II ozone-depleting substances 
where EPA determines other alternatives exist that reduce overall risk 
to human health and the environment. The SNAP program, based on 
information collected from the manufacturers, formulators, and/or 
sellers of such substitutes, identifies acceptable substitutes. 
Responses to the collection of information are mandatory under Section 
612 for anyone who sells or, in certain cases, uses substitutes for an 
ozone-depleting substance after April 18, 1994, the effective date of 
the final rule. Measures to protect confidentiality of information 
collected under the SNAP program are based on EPA's confidentiality 
regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq., or Subpart B). Submitters may 
designate all or portions of their forms or petitions as confidential. 
EPA requires the submitters to substantiate their claim of 
confidentiality. Under CAA Section 114(c), emissions information may 
not be claimed as confidential.
    To develop the lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes, 
the Agency must assess and compare ``overall risks to human health and 
the environment'' posed by use of substitutes in the context of 
particular applications. EPA requires submission of information 
covering a wide range of health and environmental factors. These 
include intrinsic properties such as physical and chemical information, 
ozone depleting potential, global warming potential, toxicity, and 
flammability, and use-specific data such as substitute applications, 
process description, environmental release data, exposure data during 
use of a substitute, environmental fate and transport, and cost 
information. Once a completed submission has been received, a 90 day 
review period under the SNAP program will commence. Any substitute 
which is a new chemical must also be submitted to the Agency through a 
Premanufacture Notice under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 
Alternatives that will be used as sterilants must be filed jointly with 
EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs and with SNAP.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 30 
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: manufacturers, importers, 
formulators and processors of substitutes for ozone-depleting 
substances.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 221.
    Frequency of Response: Annual.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,683.

    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $476,742, which includes $22,281 
annualized capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,521 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This is due to changes in EPA's estimates of the
