Abstract: This Information Collection Request (ICR) renewal supports activities to implement the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), Subpart J (40 CFR 300.900, ‘‘Use of Dispersants and Other Chemicals’’). Subpart J of the NCP governs the use of bioremediation agents, dispersants, surface washing agents, surface collecting agents, sorbents, and miscellaneous agents in response to oil spills in U.S. waters or adjoining shorelines (40 CFR 300.900). Subpart J requirements include criteria for listing oil spill mitigating agents on the NCP Product Schedule, hereafter referred to as the Schedule. EPA’s regulation, which is codified at 40 CFR 300.900, requires that EPA prepare a schedule of ‘‘dispersants, other chemicals, and other spill mitigating devices and substances, if any, that may be used in carrying out the NCP. Section 300.910 of Subpart J addresses the authorization of the use of products on the Schedule and specifies the conditions under which OSCs may authorize the use of dispersants, other chemicals, and other spill mitigating substances. The Schedule is required by section 311(d)(2)(G) of the Clean Water Act (CWA), as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. The Schedule is used by PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 federal On-Scene Coordinators (OSCs), Regional Response Teams (RRTs), and Area Planners to identify spill mitigating agents in preparation for and response to oil spills. Form Numbers: None Respondents/affected entities: Private manufacturers. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Estimated number of respondents: 11 per year. Frequency of response: Once. Total estimated burden: 315 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $88,743 (per year), includes $72,450 annualized capitol or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 75 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the expectation that the number of manufacturer respondents will decrease from 14 to 11 per year. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.
