Abstract: To determine compliance with the NAAQS, State air monitoring agencies are required to use, in their air quality monitoring networks, air monitoring methods that have been formally designated by the EPA as either reference or equivalent methods under EPA regulations at 40 CFR Part 53. A manufacturer or seller of an air monitoring method (e.g., an air monitoring sampler or analyzer) that seeks to obtain such EPA designation of one of its products must carry out prescribed tests of the method. The test results and other information must then be submitted to the EPA in the form of an application for a reference or equivalent method determination in accordance with 40 CFR Part 53. The EPA uses this information, under the provisions of Part 53, to determine whether the particular method should be designated as either a reference or equivalent method. After a method is designated, the applicant must also maintain records of the names and mailing addresses of all ultimate purchasers of all analyzers or samplers sold as designated methods under the method designation. If the method designated is a method for fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and coarse particulate matter (PM10–2.5), the applicant must also submit a checklist signed by an ISO-certified auditor to indicate that the samplers or analyzers sold as part of the designated method are manufactured in an ISO 9001registered facility. Also, an applicant must submit a minor application to seek approval for any proposed modifications to previously designated methods. Form numbers: None.

    Abstract: Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), 
as amended, Congress directed EPA to implement a comprehensive program 
for the safe management of hazardous waste. The core of the national 
waste management program is the regulation of hazardous waste from 
generation to transport to treatment and eventual disposal, or from 
``cradle to grave.'' Section 3001(d) of RCRA requires EPA to develop 
standards for small quantity generators. Section 3002 of RCRA states, 
among other things, that EPA shall establish requirements for hazardous 
waste generators regarding recordkeeping practices. Section 3002 also 
requires EPA to establish standards on appropriate use of containers by 
generators. Finally, Section 3017 of RCRA specifies requirements for 
individuals exporting hazardous waste from the United States, including 
a notification of the intent to export, and an annual report 
summarizing the types, quantities, frequency, and ultimate destination 
of all exported hazardous waste.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Private business or other for-
profit.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Parts 262 and 
265).
    Estimated number of respondents: 67,288.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 253,519 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $14,674,934 (per year), includes $40,041 
annualized

capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 22,323 hours in 
the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a decrease in the universe 
from 90,675 to 67,288.
