ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is notifying the public that electronic emissions reporting is now available for sources covered by the Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR). The FARR requires certain sources of air pollution on Indian Reservations in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to register and report emissions to the EPA. Any person who owns or operates a source of air pollution with the potential to emit two or more tons per year of an air pollutant, with certain exceptions, must register annually and report those emissions. Registration and emissions reports are due within 90 days of commencing operations, and annually thereafter.

What information is EPA particularly interested in? Pursuant to PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), EPA specifically solicits comments and information to enable it to: 1. 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. 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. 4. 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. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork burden for very small businesses affected by this collection. II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply to? Title: Submission of Protocols and Study Reports for Environmental Research Involving Human Subjects. ICR number: EPA ICR No. 2195.05. OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070–0169. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on August 31, 2016. An Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers for certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for the regulation of pesticides under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). As revised in 2006 and 2013, EPA regulations at 40 CFR part 26 protect subjects of ‘‘third-party’’ human research (i.e., research that is not conducted or supported by EPA).1 In addition to other protections, the regulations require affected entities to submit information to EPA and an institutional review board (IRB) prior to initiating, and to EPA upon the completion of, certain studies that involve human research participants. The information collection activity consists of activity-driven reporting and recordkeeping requirements for those who intend to conduct research for submission to EPA under the pesticide laws. If such research involves intentional dosing of human subjects, these individuals (respondents) are required to submit study protocols to EPA and a cognizant local Human Subjects IRB before such research is initiated so that the scientific design and ethical standards that will be employed during the proposed study may be reviewed and approved. Also, respondents are required to submit information about the ethical conduct of completed research that involved human subjects when such research is submitted to EPA. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 2,131 hours per response. Burden is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b). The ICR, which is available in the docket along with other related materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized here: Respondents/Affected Entities: Any entity that submits protocols and study reports for environmental research involving human subjects under FIFRA and/or FFDCA. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 5 annually for research involving intentional exposure of human subjects and 10 annually for all 1 To access the revised regulation go to: http:// www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-02-14/html/201303456.htm E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1

Notice of Availability of Electronic Reporting; Federal Air Rules 
for Reservations Online Reporting System

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is notifying the 
public that electronic emissions reporting is now available for sources 
covered by the Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR). The FARR 
requires certain sources of air pollution on Indian Reservations in 
Idaho, Oregon, and Washington to register and report emissions to the 
EPA. Any person who owns or operates a source of air pollution with the 
potential to emit two or more tons per year of an air pollutant, with 
certain exceptions, must register annually and report those emissions. 
Registration and emissions reports are due within 90 days of commencing 
operations, and annually thereafter. The EPA created the FARR Online 
Reporting System (FORS) to help make registration and emissions 
reporting easier. The FORS, operated through the agency's Central Data 
Exchange (CDX), is CROMERR compliant, which means the electronic 
signature meets the EPA's regulatory electronic signature requirements.

and report emissions electronically.
    How to Access the System: The FORS can be accessed at https://cdx.epa.gov. New users will need to register and select FORS as their 
program service. The EPA intends to provide training to affected 
entities on how to access, register and use the system.
    How to Get Help Using the System: The EPA has provided the CDX user 
guide to each source currently registered under the FARR, and to tribal 
governments in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. That guide is available 
at http://yosemite.epa.gov/R10/tribal.nsf/programs/farr. The CDX Help 
Desk is available for technical support-related questions between the

claimed as confidential should be submitted on compact disk or flash 
drive and mailed to the FARR Registration Coordinator, EPA Region 10, 
AWT-150, 1200 Sixth Ave., Suite 900, Seattle, WA 98101. Confidential 
treatment is automatically forfeited for information submitted through 
the FORS. Note that emissions data and information necessary to
