The SNAP program, based on information collected from the manufacturers, formulators, and/or sellers of such substitutes, identifies acceptable substitutes. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory under Section 612 for anyone who sells or, in certain cases, uses substitutes for an ozone-depleting substance after April 18, 1994. Steps to protect confidentiality of information collected under the SNAP program are based on EPA’s confidentiality regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq.). Submitters may designate all or portions of their forms or petitions as confidential, and must substantiate their claim of confidentiality. Under CAA Section 114(c), emissions information may not be claimed as confidential. To develop the lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes, EPA must assess and compare ‘‘overall risks to human health and the environment’’ posed by use of substitutes in the context of particular applications. EPA requires submission of information covering a wide range of health and environmental factors, including intrinsic properties such as physical and chemical information, ozone depleting potential, global warming potential, toxicity, and flammability, and usespecific data such as substitute applications, process description, environmental release data, exposure data during use of a substitute, environmental fate and transport, and cost information. Any substitute which is a new chemical must also be submitted to EPA under the New Chemicals program under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Alternatives that will be used as sterilants must be filed jointly with EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs and with SNAP. Form Numbers: 1265–14. Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers, importers, formulators, and processors of substitutes for ozonedepleting substances. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 82.176). Estimated number of responses: 212 (per year). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 Aug 26, 2014 Jkt 232001 Frequency of response: Annual. Total estimated burden: 6,371 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $488,007 (per year), includes $22,800 annualized startup/O&M costs. Burden estimate: For persons filing a SNAP Information Notice or petition, the reporting burden is estimated at 165 hours per year. For persons filing a TSCA/SNAP Addendum, the reporting burden is estimated at 36 hours per year. For persons filing a notification of test marketing activity, the reporting burden is estimated at 1 hour per year. For persons keeping records of use of a substitute subject to use conditions or narrowed use limits, the recordkeeping burden is estimated at 27 hours per year. For persons keeping records of a small volume use, the recordkeeping burden is estimated at 12 hours per year. Changes in the estimates: There is a decrease of 312 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The number of SNAP Information Notice submissions each year is expected to increase during the next 3 years. Many SNAP submissions are for chemicals or blends of alternatives previously found acceptable, so while the number of submissions is expected to increase, the burden of developing supporting information for most submissions is expected to decrease because it is easier to find and review information for substitutes previously reviewed. The SNAP submission forms have been revised to improve usability and ease burden on submitters by clarifying the information necessary for review based on the specific sector(s) and end-use(s) being pursued, and by eliminating redundancy. Also, the Agency encourages the submission of electronic files, reducing burden on respondents and the Agency for processing. EPA estimates a 20% reduction in the number of respondents responsible for recordkeeping for substitutes acceptable subject to use conditions and narrowed use limits because the increased availability of alternatives decreases the need for industry to use alternatives previously listed as acceptable subject to narrowed use limits.

to fulfill

the general mandate in Section 612(c) that states the Administrator 
shall promulgate rules providing that it shall be unlawful to replace 
any class I or class II substance with any substitute substance which 
the Administrator determines may present adverse effects to human 
health or the environment, where the Administrator has identified an 
alternative to such replacement that (1) reduces the overall risk to 
human health and the environment; and (2) is currently or potentially 
available.
    The SNAP program, based on information collected from the 
manufacturers, formulators, and/or sellers of such substitutes, 
identifies acceptable substitutes. Responses to the collection of 
information are mandatory under Section 612 for anyone who sells or, in 
certain cases, uses substitutes for an ozone-depleting substance after 
April 18, 1994. Steps to protect confidentiality of information 
collected under the SNAP program are based on EPA's confidentiality 
regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq.). Submitters may designate all or 
portions of their forms or petitions as confidential, and must 
substantiate their claim of confidentiality. Under CAA Section 114(c), 
emissions information may not be claimed as confidential.
    To develop the lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes, 
EPA must assess and compare ``overall risks to human health and the 
environment'' posed by use of substitutes in the context of particular 
applications. EPA requires submission of information covering a wide 
range of health and environmental factors, including intrinsic 
properties such as physical and chemical information, ozone depleting 
potential, global warming potential, toxicity, and flammability, and 
use-specific data such as substitute applications, process description, 
environmental release data, exposure data during use of a substitute, 
environmental fate and transport, and cost information. Any substitute 
which is a new chemical must also be submitted to EPA under the New 
Chemicals program under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). 
Alternatives that will be used as sterilants must be filed jointly with 
EPA's Office of Pesticide Programs and with SNAP.
    Form Numbers: 1265-14.
    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers, importers, 
formulators, and processors of substitutes for ozone-depleting 
substances.

    Estimated number of responses: 212 (per year).
    Frequency of response: Annual.
    Total estimated burden: 6,371 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $488,007 (per year), includes $22,800 
annualized start-up/O&M costs.
    Burden estimate: For persons filing a SNAP Information Notice or 
petition, the reporting burden is estimated at 165 hours per year. For 
persons filing a TSCA/SNAP Addendum, the reporting burden is estimated 
at 36 hours per year. For persons filing a notification of test 
marketing activity, the reporting burden is estimated at 1 hour per 
year. For persons keeping records of use of a substitute subject to use
