Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for the Graphic Arts Industry (40 CFR part 60, subpart QQ) were proposed on October 28, 1980, and promulgated on November 8, 1982. The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or additions to the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart QQ. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial notification report, performance tests, periodic reports, and maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. Reports are required semiannually at a minimum. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/Affected Entities: Graphic arts facilities. Respondent’s Obligation to Respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart QQ). Estimated Number of Respondents: 20.33 (total). Frequency of Response: Initially and semiannually. Total Estimated Burden: 1,802 hours (per year). ‘‘Burden’’ is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total Estimated Cost: $176,264 (per year), which also includes no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total estimated respondent burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The change in burden is due to an increase in the number of sources subject to these standards, and is not due to any program changes. The number of sources has been increased to account for industry growth that has occurred since the most-recent ICR was approved. Also, there is an increase in the respondent cost from the most recentlyapproved ICR due to the use of updated labor rates. This ICR references labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate the respondent burden cost. There is a decrease in the total estimated Agency burden as compared to the most recently-approved ICR. This change is due to a revision in the labor burden estimate for repeat performance testing. Due to a discrepancy in the previous ICR, the labor burden for repeat performance testing included respondents who passed the initial performance test. The revision accounts only for respondents who failed the initial performance test resulted in the reduced labor burden observed in this ICR. Also, note that the ICR also incorporates updated labor rates from OPM. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Abstract: The National Estuary Program (NEP) involves collecting information from the state or local agency or nongovernmental organizations that receive funds under Sec. 320 of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The regulation requiring this information is found at 40 CFR part 35. Prospective grant recipients seek funding to develop or oversee and coordinate implementation of Comprehensive Conservation Management Plans (CCMPs) for estuaries of national significance. In order to receive funds, grantees must submit an annual workplan to EPA which are used to track performance of each of the 28 estuary programs currently in the NEP. EPA provides funding to NEPs to support long-term implementation of CCMPs if such programs pass a program evaluation process. The primary purpose of the program evaluation process is to help EPA determine whether the 28 programs included in the National Estuary Program (NEP) are making adequate progress implementing their CCMPs and therefore merit continued funding under Sec. 320 of the Clean Water Act. EPA also requests that each of the 28 NEPs receiving Sec. 320 funds report information that can be used in the GPRA reporting process. This reporting is done on an annual basis and is used to show environmental results that are being achieved within the overall NEP Program. This information is ultimately submitted to Congress along with GPRA information from other EPA programs. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are those state or local agencies or nongovernmental organizations in the National Estuary Program (NEP) who receive grants under Section 320 of the Clean Water Act. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:40 Jan 10, 2014 Jkt 232001 Respondent’s Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain a benefit (Section 320 of the Clean Water Act). Estimated Number of Respondents: 28 (total). Frequency of Response: Annual. Total Estimated Burden: 4,900 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total Estimated Cost: $221,970 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is decrease of 933 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to the fact that the respondents are not required to submit a program evaluation package in 2016, as a result of modifications made by EPA to the Program Evaluation Guidance and a redistribution of the number of NEPs to be reviewed each evaluation cycle.
