Abstract: Title V of the Clean Air Act (Act) requires the EPA to operate a federal operating permits program in areas not subject to an approved state program. The EPA regulations setting forth the requirements for the federal (EPA) operating permit program are at 40 CFR part 71. The part 71 program is designed to be implemented primarily by the EPA in all areas where state and local agencies do not have jurisdiction, such as Indian country and offshore, beyond states’ seaward boundaries. The EPA may also delegate authority to implement the part 71 program on its behalf to a state, local or tribal agency, if the agency requests delegation and makes certain showings regarding its authority and ability to implement the program. One such delegate agency for the part 71 program exists at present. In order to receive an operating permit for a major or other source subject to the permitting program, the applicant must conduct the necessary research, perform the appropriate analyses, and prepare the permit application with documentation to demonstrate that its facility meets all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. Specific activities and requirements are listed and described in the Supporting Statement for the part 71 ICR. Under part 71, the permitting authority (the EPA or a delegate agency) reviews permit applications, provides for public review of proposed permits, issues permits based on consideration of PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 36805 all technical factors and public input, and reviews information submittals required of sources during the term of the permit. Under part 71, the EPA reviews certain actions and performs oversight of any delegate agency, consistent with the terms of a delegation agreement. Consequently, information prepared and submitted by sources is essential for sources to receive permits, and for federal and tribal permitting agencies to adequately review the permit applications and issue the permits, oversee implementation of the permits, and properly administer and manage the program. Information that is collected is handled according to EPA’s policies set forth in title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information (see 40 CFR part 2). See also section 114(c) of the Act. Form Numbers: The forms are 5900– 01, 5900–02, 5900–03, 5900–04, 5900– 05, 5900–06, 5900–79, 5900–80, 5900– 81, 5900–82, 5900–83, 5900–84, 5900– 85 and 5900–86. Respondents/affected entities: Industrial plants (sources) and tribal permitting authorities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (see 40 CFR part 71). Estimated number of respondents: 99 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 25,937 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,689,347 (per year). There are no annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 11,692 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to updated estimates of the number of sources and permits subject to the part 71 program, rather than any new federal mandates. The changes in estimates are due to shrinkage from the transfer of 36 permits from the part 71 to the part 70 program and due to a previous overestimate of the number of sources that would get permits by the end of the previous ICR (which is the start of the current ICR).

    Abstract: Under the authority of the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended, Congress directed the U.S. 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement a comprehensive 
program for the safe management of hazardous waste. In addition, 
Congress wrote that ``[a]ny person may petition the Administrator for 
the promulgation, amendment or repeal of any regulation'' under RCRA 
(section 7004(a)).
    40 CFR parts 260 and 261 contain provisions that allow regulated 
entities to apply for petitions, variances, exclusions, and exemptions 
from various RCRA requirements.
    The following are some examples of information required from 
petitioners under 40 CFR part 260. Under 40 CFR 260.20(b), all 
rulemaking petitioners must submit basic information with their 
demonstrations, including name, address, and statement of interest in 
the proposed action. Under Sec.  260.21, all petitioners for equivalent 
testing or analytical methods must include specific information in 
their petitions and demonstrate to the satisfaction of the 
Administrator that the proposed method is equal to, or superior to, the 
corresponding method in terms of its sensitivity, accuracy, and 
reproducibility. Under Sec.  260.22, petitions to amend part 261 to 
exclude a waste produced at a particular facility (more simply, to 
delist a waste) must meet extensive informational requirements. When a 
petition is submitted, the Agency reviews materials, deliberates, 
publishes its tentative decision in the Federal Register, and requests 
public comment. EPA also may hold informal public hearings (if 
requested by an interested person or at the discretion of the 
Administrator) to hear oral comments on its tentative decision. After 
evaluating all comments, EPA publishes its final decision in the 
Federal Register.

    Estimated number of respondents: 26,041 (total).

    Total estimated burden: 484,789 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $78,895,502 (per year), includes $51,648,460 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
