Abstract: Under the provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Administrator is required to promulgate regulations to control air pollutant emissions from motor vehicles and nonroad engines, as PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 64209 defined in the CAA. Per Sections 207(c)(1) and 213 of the CAA, when a substantial number of properly maintained and used engines produced by a manufacturer do not conform to emission standards, the manufacturer is required to recall the engines. Engine manufacturers are required to submit Defect Information Reports (DIRs) if emission-related defects are found on engines of the same model year that may cause the engines’ emissions to exceed the standards. EPA uses these reports to target potentially nonconforming classes of engines for future testing, to monitor compliance with applicable regulations and to order a recall, if necessary. Manufacturers can also initiate a recall voluntarily by submitting a Voluntary Emission Recall Report (VERR). VERRs and VERR updates allow EPA to determine whether the manufacturer conducting the recall is acting in accordance with the CAA and to examine and monitor the effectiveness of the recall campaign. Forms: The forms associated with this ICR are available in the docket (EPA– HQ–OAR–2006–0895). Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers of heavy-duty highway and nonroad engines. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under 40 CFR parts 85, 89, 90, 91, 92, 94, 1035, 1039, 1042, 1045, 1048, 1051, 1054, 1068. Estimated number of respondents: 40 (total). Frequency of response: Quarterly. Total estimated burden: 15,084 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,042,252 (per year), includes $9,800 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is decrease of 11,479 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a significant decrease in the estimated number of respondents. This decrease is due to adjustments EPA has made to its estimates.
