EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: In the course of administering environmental protection statutes, EPA collects data from ‘‘businesses’’ in many sectors of the U.S. economy. In many cases, ‘‘businesses’’ mark the data it submits to EPA as confidential business information (CBI). In addition, businesses submit information to EPA without the Agency requesting the information. EPA established the procedures described in 40 CFR Part 2, subparts A and B, to protect the confidentiality of information as well as the rights of the public to obtain access to information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In accordance with these regulations, when EPA finds it necessary to make a final confidentiality determination (e.g., in response to a FOIA request or in the course of rulemaking or litigation, a resubstantiation of a prior claim, or an advance confidentiality determination), it shall notify the affected business and provide an opportunity to submit a substantiation of confidentiality claims. This ICR relates to information EPA needs to collect to assist in determining whether previously submitted information is entitled to confidential treatment. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are businesses and other for-profit companies. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit, 5 USC Section 522 Freedom of Information Act. Estimated number of respondents: 1,320. Frequency of response: 1 per year. Total estimated burden: 1,992 hours. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $88,825.25 includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:05 Sep 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 Changes in Estimates: As part of the ICR renewal process, EPA is obtaining usage for the past 12 months of each of the letters covered by this ICR to obtain up-to-date estimates. EPA anticipates that both usage and response rates will decrease. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Total estimated cost: $2,202,893 (per year), includes $14,800 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an overall decrease in burden and cost for both the respondent and Agency. This is not due to any program changes. The burden decreased since the last ICR renewal due to a revision in the number of respondents. Based on recent industry data and Agency estimates, we have revised the number of affected sources from 40 to 37. This revision also resulted in a corresponding decrease in the total O&M costs. In addition, this ICR corrects the Agency burden associated with the review of repeat performance tests. This ICR assumes that only 5 percent of respondents will conduct these tests.
