Abstract: Under Section 206(a) of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7521), onhighway engine and vehicle manufacturers may not legally introduce their products into US commerce unless EPA has certified that their production complies with applicable emission standards. Per section 207(a), original vehicle manufacturers must warrant that vehicles are free from defects in materials and workmanship that would cause the vehicle not to comply with emission regulations during its useful life. Section 207(a) directs EPA to provide certification to those manufacturers or builders of automotive aftermarket parts that demonstrate that the installation and use of their products will not cause failure of the engine or vehicle to comply with emission standards. An aftermarket part is any part offered for sale for installation in or on a motor vehicle after such vehicle has left the vehicle manufacturer’s production line (40 CFR 85.2113(b)). Participation in the aftermarket certification program is voluntary. Aftermarket part manufacturers or builders (manufacturers) electing to participate conduct emission and durability testing as described in 40 CFR part 85, subpart V, and submit data about their products and testing procedures. Any information submitted to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to policies set forth in CFR title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information (see 40 CFR part 2). Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers or builders of automotive aftermarket parts. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary. PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 547 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $19,063 (per year), which includes $1,955 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.
