The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR Part 9. Abstract: The scope of this ICR is the electronic reporting components of the Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR), which is designed to: allow EPA to comply with the Government Paperwork Elimination Act of 1998; provide a uniform, technologyneutral framework for electronic reporting across all EPA programs; allow EPA programs to offer electronic reporting as they become ready for CROMERR; and provide states with a streamlined process—together with uniform set of standards—for approval of their electronic reporting provisions for all their EPA-authorized programs. Use of electronic reporting is voluntary. In order to accommodate CBI, the information collected must be in accordance with the confidentiality regulations set forth in 40 CFR Part 2, subpart B. Additionally, EPA will ensure that the information collection procedures comply with the Privacy Act of 1974 and the OMB Circular 108. Burden Statement: The overall recordkeeping and reporting burden for this ICR is estimated to be about 12 minutes per response. However, the actual burden varies between 5 minutes and 331 hours depending on the specific activity. Please see the supporting statement for the details. 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: Facilities reporting electronically to EPA and state, tribal, or local government authorized programs; and state, tribal, and local government VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Jun 28, 2011 Jkt 223001 authorized programs implementing electronic reporting. Estimated Number of Respondents: EPA estimates that, on average, 87,080 facility employees will register and comply with identity proofing requirements of EPA or state, tribal, or local government authorized program electronic document receiving systems each year. EPA estimates that 24 state, tribal, or local government authorized programs will submit documentation to EPA associated with the approval of their electronic document receiving systems each year. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 39,763 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: The estimated total annual cost is $2,167,446. This includes an estimated labor cost of $1,396,120, capital cost of $632,137, and operation and maintenance (O&M) cost of $139,189. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 38,272 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease occurred for two primary reasons. First, there was a decrease in the annualized number of respondents. The total number of employees registering with EPA’s electronic document receiving system and/or complying with CROMERR’s identity proofing requirements decreased from 93,325 in the currently approved ICR to 87,080 in this ICR. In addition, the total number of state, tribal, and local government authorized programs upgrading their existing electronic document receiving systems or developing new electronic document receiving systems, and submitting documentation associated with the approval of CROMERR applications decreased from 61 in the currently approved ICR to 24 in this ICR. EPA conducted a thorough examination of available information (e.g., number of application received over the past three years) in estimating the number of respondents subject to the requirements of this ICR. EPA thinks that the number of respondents included in this ICR is a reasonable approximation of the actual respondent universe. Second, in developing this ICR, EPA carefully reviewed the respondent activities associated with compliance with identify proofing requirements. EPA made a few changes to the assumptions associated with subscriber agreement and LRA alternatives to be consistent with actual compliance of respondents with these requirements. For example, EPA reduced the proportion of respondents that use the LRA alternative while increasing the PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38151 proportion of respondents that comply with subscriber agreement requirements. This resulted in a burden decrease because the burden associated with subscriber agreements is less than the LRA burden. EPA notes that few, if any, respondents opted to use the LRA alternative over the past three years. Dated: June 23, 2011. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

identified in this document.

What information is EPA particularly interested in?

    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA specifically 
solicits comments and information to enable it to:
    (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden 
of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of 
the methodology and assumptions used;
    (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and
    (iv) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from 
very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of 
specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork 
burden for very small businesses affected by this collection.

What should I consider when I prepare my comments for EPA?

    You may find the following suggestions helpful for preparing your 
comments:
    1. Explain your views as clearly as possible and provide specific 
examples.
    2. Describe any assumptions that you used.
    3. Provide copies of any technical information and/or data you used 
that support your views.
    4. If you estimate potential burden or costs, explain how you

    5. Offer alternative ways to improve the collection activity.
    6. Make sure to submit your comments by the deadline identified 
under DATES.
    7. To ensure proper receipt by EPA, be sure to identify the docket 
ID number assigned to this action in the subject line on the first page 
of your response. You may also provide the name, date, and Federal 
Register citation.

What information collection activity or ICR does this apply to?

    Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are 
importers into the United States of nonroad engines and vehicles.
    Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for Importation of 
Nonroad Engines and Recreational Vehicles (Renewal).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1723.05, OMB Control No. 2060-0320.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on December 
31, 2011. 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 covers the burden associated with EPA Form 3520-
21, a declaration form for importers of nonroad vehicles or engines 
into the United States, which identifies the regulated category of 
engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the 
importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the possible 
burden of EPA Form 3520-8 if it comes to be used to request final 
importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers of nonroad 
Compression Ignition engines, who would have to bring the engines into 
compliance and provide test results, comparable to the use of Form 
3520-8 for on-road vehicles and engines as covered by OMB 2060-0095. 
The information is used by Agency enforcement personnel to verify that 
all nonroad vehicles and engines subject to Federal emission 
requirements have been declared upon entry or that the category of 
exclusion or exemption from emissions requirements has been identified 
in the declaration. The information is also used to identify and 
prosecute violators of the regulations and to monitor the

[[Page 38153]]

program in achieving the objectives of the regulations. The Forms are 
required before making customs entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.81 
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.
    The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency's estimate, 
which is only briefly summarized here:
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4,801.
    Frequency of response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may 
be used).
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 
2.5.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 6,029.
    Estimated total annual costs: $299,481. This includes an estimated 
burden cost of $261,479 and an estimated cost of $38,002 for capital 
investment or maintenance and operational costs.

Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval?

    There are no changes in the number of hours in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. Form 3520-21 has remained relatively unchanged since 
the previous renewal and therefore the burden for filling in the form
