Abstract: Owners and operators of petroleum refinery wastewater systems are required to keep records of design and operating specifications of all equipment installed to comply with such standards such as water seals, roof seals, control devices, and other equipment. This information is necessary to ensure that equipment design and operation specifications are met, and the source is in compliance with NSPS subpart QQQ. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:23 Jan 30, 2014 Jkt 232001 Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Petroleum refinery wastewater systems. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart QQQ) Estimated number of respondents: 135 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually Total estimated burden: 9,237 hours (per year). ‘‘Burden’’ is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $921,126 (per year), includes $17,550 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. The increase in respondent and Agency costs from the most recently approved ICR is due to an adjustment in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The SAB was established pursuant 
to the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration 
Authorization Act (ERDDAA) codified at 42 U.S.C. 4365, to provide 
independent scientific and technical peer review, advice, consultation 
and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on the technical basis for 
EPA actions. As a Federal Advisory Committee, the SAB conducts business 
in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. 
App. 2) and related regulations. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, 
notice is hereby given that the SAB Chemical Assessment Advisory 
Committee (CAAC) along with additional experts will hold public 
meetings to: (1) Learn about the EPA's enhancements to the process for 
developing Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) health assessments 
for chemicals and (2) to conduct peer reviews of two draft IRIS 
assessments, Toxicological Review of Ammonia (August 2013 Draft) and 
Toxicological Review of Trimethylbenzenes (August 2013 Draft). The SAB 
committee and panels will comply with the provisions of FACA and all 
appropriate SAB Staff Office procedural policies.
    EPA's Office of Research and Development has requested that the SAB 
conduct peer reviews of two draft documents, Toxicological Review of 
Ammonia (August 2013 Draft) and Toxicological Review of 
Trimethylbenzenes (August 2013 Draft). The EPA SAB Staff Office 
augmented the SAB CAAC with subject matter experts to provide advice 
through the chartered SAB regarding these IRIS assessments. The SAB 
Staff Office previously requested public nominations of experts to 
serve as chemical-specific experts for these peer reviews in a Federal 
Register notice published on August 28, 2013 (78:167 pp. 53144-46). 
Information about the formation of the SAB CAAC augmented for the 
Ammonia peer review can be found on the SAB Web site at http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/02ad90b136fc21ef85256eba00436459/2fe334e0bec7a3cf85257b65005c500b!OpenDocument&TableRow=2.1#2. 
Information about the formation of the SAB CAAC augmented for the 
Trimethylbenzenes peer review can be found on the SAB Web site at 
http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/sabproduct.nsf/02ad90b136fc21ef85256eba00436459/ee1e280e77586de985257b65005d37e7!OpenDocument&TableRow=2.1#2.
    Prior to the beginning of their peer review activities, the 
augmented CAAC panels will meet in a plenary session to receive EPA 
briefings on the enhancements to the process for developing IRIS health 
assessments for chemicals.
    Availability of the review materials: Information about these 
public meetings will be available on the SAB Web site (http://www.epa.gov/sab) prior to the meetings. Meeting materials can be 
accessed by using the ``calendar'' link in the blue navigation sidebar 
and then clicking on the date corresponding to the meeting date.
    Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comments for 
consideration by EPA's federal advisory committees and panels have a 
different purpose from public comments provided to EPA program offices. 
Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory 
committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an 
EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including 
scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. 
Members of the public can submit relevant comments pertaining to the 
committee's charge, meeting materials and/or the group conducting the 
activity. Input from the public to the SAB will have the most impact if 
it consists of comments that provide specific scientific or technical 
information or analysis for the SAB committee to consider or if it 
relates to the clarity or accuracy of the technical information. 
Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the 
Designated Federal Officer for the relevant advisory committee 
directly.
    Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an 
oral presentation will be limited to five minutes per speaker. 
Interested parties wishing to provide comments regarding the IRIS 
process enhancements or the SAB's review of the agency's Toxicological 
Review of Ammonia (August 2013 Draft) should contact Dr. Suhair 
Shallal, DFO, and interested parties wishing to provide comments 
regarding the Toxicological Review of Trimethylbenzenes (August 2013 
Draft) should contact Mr. Thomas Carpenter, DFO in writing (preferably 
via email), at the contact information noted above, by February 10, 
2014 to be placed on the list of public speakers for the meeting. 
Written Statements: Written statements should be received in the SAB 
Staff Office by February 10, 2014 so that the information can be made 
available to the SAB Committee for consideration. Written statements 
should be supplied to the appropriate DFO in electronic format via 
email (acceptable file formats: Adobe Acrobat PDF, WordPerfect, MS 
Word, MS PowerPoint, or Rich Text files in IBM-PC/Windows 98/2000/XP 
format). It is the SAB Staff Office general policy to post written 
comments on the Web page for the advisory meeting or teleconference. 
Submitters are requested to provide an unsigned version of each 
document

on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their 
personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may
