Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Renewal of Collection; Comment Request, 80357-80359 [2015-32515]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 247 / Thursday, December 24, 2015 / Notices specific transmission projects. The FERC–730 provides annual data on transmission capital expenditures as well as project status detail. The Commission requires that filers specify which projects are currently receiving incentives in the project detail table and that they group together those facilities receiving the same incentive. Specifically, in accordance with the statute, public utilities with incentive rates must file: • Actual transmission investment for the most recent calendar year, and projected, incremental investments for the next five calendar years (in dollar terms); and • a project by project listing that specifies for each project the most up to date, expected completion date, percentage completion as of the date of filing, and reasons for delays for all current and projected investments over the next five calendar years. Projects with projected costs less than $20 million are excluded from this listing. To ensure that Commission rules are successfully meeting the objectives of Section 219, the Commission collects industry data, projections and related information that detail the level of 80357 investment. FERC–730 information regarding projected investments as well as information about completed projects allows the Commission to monitor the success of the transmission pricing reforms and to determine the status of critical projects and reasons for delay. Type of Respondent: Public utilities that have been granted incentives based rate treatment for specific transmission projects under the provisions of 18 CFR 35.35(h) must file the FERC–730. Estimate of Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: FERC–730 (REPORT OF TRANSMISSION INVESTMENT ACTIVITY) Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden & cost per response 6 Total annual burden hours & total annual cost Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1) * (2) = (3) (4) (3) * (4) = (5) (5) ÷ (1) 63 .........................................................................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. 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. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES II.

ICR number: EPA ICR No. 0597.12. OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070–0024. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:57 Dec 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 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 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 use of pesticides to increase crop production often results in pesticide residues in or on the crop. To protect the public health from unsafe pesticide residues, EPA sets limits on the nature and level of residues permitted pursuant to section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). A pesticide may not be used on food or feed crops unless the Agency has established a tolerance (maximum residue limit) for the pesticide residues on that crop, or established an exemption from the requirement to have a tolerance. Under the law, EPA is responsible for ensuring that the maximum residue levels likely to be found in or on food/ feed are safe for human consumption through a careful review and evaluation of residue chemistry and toxicology data. In addition, EPA must ensure that adequate enforcement of the tolerance can be achieved through the testing of submitted analytical methods. If the data are adequate for EPA to determine that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure, the Agency will establish the tolerance or grant an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance. This ICR only applies to the information collection activities associated with the submission of a petition for a tolerance action. While EPA is authorized to set pesticide tolerances, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for their enforcement. Food or feed commodities found to contain pesticide residues in excess of established tolerances are considered adulterated, and are subject to seizure by FDA, and may result in civil penalties. Trade secret or CBI is frequently submitted to the EPA in support of a tolerance petition because submissions usually include the manufacturing process, product formulation, and supporting data. When such information is provided to the Agency, the information is protected from disclosure under FIFRA Section 10. CBI data submitted to the EPA is handled strictly in accordance with the provisions of the ‘‘FIFRA Confidential Business Information Security Manual.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,726 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: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are Pesticide manufacturers and IR–4. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 165. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. Estimated total annual burden hours: 285,128 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $27,475,223.58. This is the estimated burden cost; there is no cost for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs in this information collection request. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? There is an increase of 48,328 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is a result of an increase from 137 to 165 in the estimated average number of tolerance petitions submitted annually, which resulted in a change to the annual burden hours for respondents from 236,800 in the previous renewal to 285,128 in the current renewal. There is no change in burden per tolerance petition; burden for respondents increased as a result of the estimated increase in the average number of petitions submitted annually. This change is an adjustment. IV. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? 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 pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.

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. The EPA created the FARR Online Reporting System (FORS) to help make registration and emissions reporting easier. The FORS, operated through the agency’s SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 80359 Central Data Exchange (CDX), is CROMERR compliant, which means the electronic signature meets the EPA’s regulatory electronic signature requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. 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: Tolerance Petitions for Pesticides on Food/Feed Crops and 
New Food Use Inert Ingredients.
    ICR number: EPA ICR No. 0597.12.
    OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070-0024.
    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 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 use of pesticides to increase crop production often 
results in pesticide residues in or on the crop. To protect the public 
health from unsafe pesticide residues, EPA sets limits on the nature 
and level of residues permitted pursuant to section 408 of the Federal 
Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). A pesticide may not be used on 
food or feed crops unless the Agency has established a tolerance 
(maximum residue limit) for the pesticide residues on that crop, or 
established an exemption from the requirement to have a tolerance.
    Under the law, EPA is responsible for ensuring that the maximum 
residue levels likely to be found in or on food/feed are safe for human 
consumption through a careful review and evaluation of residue 
chemistry and toxicology data. In addition, EPA must ensure that 
adequate enforcement of the tolerance can be achieved through the 
testing of submitted analytical methods. If the data are adequate for 
EPA to determine that there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will 
result from aggregate exposure, the Agency will establish the tolerance 
or grant an exemption from the requirement of a tolerance.
    This ICR only applies to the information collection activities 
associated with the submission of a petition for a tolerance action. 
While EPA is authorized to set pesticide tolerances, the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA) is responsible for their enforcement. Food or feed 
commodities found to contain pesticide residues in excess of 
established tolerances are considered adulterated, and are subject to 
seizure by FDA, and may result in civil penalties.
    Trade secret or CBI is frequently submitted to the EPA in support 
of a tolerance petition because submissions usually include the 
manufacturing process, product formulation, and supporting data. When 
such information is provided to the Agency, the information is 
protected from disclosure under FIFRA Section 10. CBI data submitted to 
the EPA is handled strictly in accordance with the provisions of the 
``FIFRA Confidential Business Information Security Manual.''
    Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,726 
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: Entities potentially affected by 
this ICR are Pesticide manufacturers and IR-4.
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 165.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 285,128 hours.
    Estimated total annual costs: $27,475,223.58. This is the estimated 
burden cost; there is no cost for capital investment or maintenance and 
operational costs in this information collection request.

III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval?

    There is an increase of 48,328 hours in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase is a result of an increase from 137 to 
165 in the estimated average number of tolerance petitions submitted 
annually, which resulted in a change to the annual burden hours for 
respondents from 236,800 in the previous renewal to 285,128 in the 
current renewal. There is no change in burden per tolerance petition; 
burden for respondents increased as a result of the estimated increase 
in the average number of petitions submitted annually. This change is 
an adjustment.

IV. What is the next step in the process for this ICR?

    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 pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another 
Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to 
announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit 
additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or 
the approval process, please contact the person listed under FOR
