Aerosol coatings are included on the list, and the standards for such coatings are codified at 40 CFR part 59, subpart E. The reports required under the standards enable the EPA to identify coating formulations manufactured, imported or distributed in the United States, and to determine the productweighted reactivity. The ICR addresses the burden for activities conducted in 3year increments after promulgation of the national VOC emission standards for aerosol coatings. Regulated entities read instructions to determine how they are affected by the rule. They are required to submit initial notifications when an aerosol coating is manufactured and notification of changes in the initial report, to report formulation data and exemptions claimed and to maintain records. In addition, regulated entities are required to submit triennial reports that include formulation data and VOC usage. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Respondents to this information collection are manufacturers, distributors and importers of aerosol coatings. These regulated entities fall within the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code 32551, ‘‘Paint and Coating E:\FR\FM\16SEN1.SGM 16SEN1
