EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: In 1995, EPA promulgated regulations at 40 CFR Part 273 that govern the collection and management of widely-generated hazardous wastes known as ‘‘Universal Wastes’’. Universal Wastes are generated in a variety of non-industrial settings, and are present in non-hazardous waste management systems. Examples of Universal Wastes include certain batteries, pesticides, mercury-containing lamps and thermostats. The Part 273 regulations are designed to ensure facilities collect these wastes and properly manage them in an appropriate hazardous waste management system. EPA distinguishes two types of handlers of Universal Wastes: Small quantity handlers of Universal Waste (SQHUW) and large quantity handlers of Universal Waste (LQHUW). SQHUWs do not accumulate more than 5,000 kg of any one category of Universal Waste at one time, while LQHUWs may accumulate quantities at or above this threshold. More stringent requirements are imposed on LQHUWs because of greater potential environmental risks. EPA needs to collect notifications of Universal Waste management from LQHUWs to obtain general information on these handlers and to facilitate enforcement of the Part 273 regulations. EPA promulgated labeling and marking requirements and accumulation time limits to ensure that Universal Waste is being accumulated responsibly. EPA needs to collect information on illegal Universal Waste shipments to enforce compliance with applicable regulations.

In 2001, EPA promulgated regulations in 40 CFR Part 266 that provide increased flexibility to facilities managing wastes commonly known as ‘‘Mixed Waste.’’ Mixed Wastes are lowlevel mixed waste (LLMW) and naturally occurring and/or acceleratorproduced radioactive material (NARM) containing hazardous waste. These wastes are also regulated by the Atomic Energy Act. As long as specified eligibility criteria and conditions are met, LLMW and NARM are exempt from the definition of hazardous waste as defined in Part 261. Although these wastes are exempt from RCRA manifest, transportation, and disposal requirements, facilities must still comply with the manifest, transportation, and disposal requirements under the NRC (or NRCAgreement State) regulations. Section 266.345(a) requires that generators or treaters notify EPA or the Authorized State that they are claiming the Transportation and Disposal Conditional Exemption prior to the initial shipment of a waste to a LLRW disposal facility. This exemption notice provides a tool for RCRA program regulatory agencies to become aware of the generator’s exemption claims. The information contained in the notification package provides the RCRA program regulatory agencies with a general understanding of the claimant. This information also allows the agencies to document the generator’s exemption status and to plan inspections and review exemptionrelated records. And finally, in 1992, EPA finalized management standards for used oils destined for recycling. The Agency codified the used oil management standards at 40 CFR Part 279. The regulations at 40 CFR Part 279 establish, among other things, streamlined procedures for notification, testing, labeling, and recordkeeping. They also establish a flexible self-implementing approach for tracking off-site shipments that allow used oil handlers to use standard business practices (e.g., invoices, bill of lading). In addition, part 279 sets standards for the prevention and cleanup of releases to the environment during storage and transit. EPA believes these requirements will minimize potential mismanagement of used oils, while not discouraging recycling. Used oil transporters must comply with all applicable packaging, labeling, and placarding requirements of 49 CFR parts 173, 178, and 179. In VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Nov 04, 2014 Jkt 235001 addition, used oil transporters must report discharges of used oil according to existing 49 CFR part 171 and 33 CFR part 153 requirements.

Respondent’s obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR Part 273), required to obtain or retain a benefit (40 CFR Parts 266 and 279). Estimated number of respondents: 123,114.

    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting 
comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of 
the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (iv) minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on those who are to respond, including 
through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or 
other technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. EPA 
will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. 
The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and 
approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice 
to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to 
submit additional comments to OMB.
    Abstract: In 1995, EPA promulgated regulations at 40 CFR Part 273

stringent requirements are imposed on LQHUWs because of greater 
potential environmental risks. EPA needs to collect notifications of 
Universal Waste management from LQHUWs to obtain general information on 
these handlers and to facilitate enforcement of the Part 273

Universal Waste shipments to enforce compliance with applicable 
regulations.

Finally, EPA requires tracking of Universal Waste shipments to help 
ensure that Universal Waste is being properly treated, recycled, or 
disposed.
    In 2001, EPA promulgated regulations in 40 CFR Part 266 that 
provide increased flexibility to facilities managing wastes commonly 
known as ``Mixed Waste.'' Mixed Wastes are low-level mixed waste (LLMW) 
and naturally occurring and/or accelerator-produced radioactive 
material (NARM) containing hazardous waste. These wastes are also 
regulated by the Atomic Energy Act. As long as specified eligibility 
criteria and conditions are met, LLMW and NARM are exempt from the 
definition of hazardous waste as defined in Part 261. Although these 
wastes are exempt from RCRA manifest, transportation, and disposal 
requirements, facilities must still comply with the manifest, 
transportation, and disposal requirements under the NRC (or NRC-
Agreement State) regulations. Section 266.345(a) requires that 
generators or treaters notify EPA or the Authorized State that they are 
claiming the Transportation and Disposal Conditional Exemption prior to 
the initial shipment of a waste to a LLRW disposal facility. This 
exemption notice provides a tool for RCRA program regulatory agencies 
to become aware of the generator's exemption claims. The information 
contained in the notification package provides the RCRA program 
regulatory agencies with a general understanding of the claimant. This 
information also allows the agencies to document the generator's 
exemption status and to plan inspections and review exemption-related 
records.
    And finally, in 1992, EPA finalized management standards for used

management standards at 40 CFR Part 279. The regulations at 40 CFR Part

mismanagement of used oils, while not discouraging recycling. Used oil 
transporters must comply with all applicable packaging, labeling, and

used oil transporters must report discharges of used oil according to 
existing 49 CFR part 171 and 33 CFR part 153 requirements.
    Form numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are Private Sector and State, Local, or Tribal Governments.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR Part 273), 
required to obtain or retain a benefit (40 CFR Parts 266 and 279).
    Estimated number of respondents: 123,114.
    Frequency of response: Occasionally.

costs.
    Changes in estimates: The burden hours are likely to stay
