Abstract: Owners and operators of wood building products surface coating facilities are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, as well as the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 63, subpart QQQQ. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Wood building products surface coating facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart QQQQ). Estimated number of respondents: 232 (total). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:17 Dec 28, 2015 Jkt 238001 Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 75,800 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $7,880,000 (per year), includes $278,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a small adjustment increase in the respondent and Agency labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. There is also a decrease in the total O&M costs. This is not due to program changes; rather, the changes occurred because we are rounding total values in this ICR to three significant figures.

Matthew Manupella, manupella.matthew@ epa.gov, (703) 347–0411. Alpha-chlorohydrin (Proposed Interim Decision). The registration review docket for alpha-chlorohydrin (EPA–HQ–OPP–2015–0726) is opening in December 2015. The only registered use for alpha-chlorohydrin is as a tamper-proof bait station/bait application delivery system for elimination of Norway rats. Alphachlorohydrin is approved for use in and around the indoors of commercial/ industrial facilities and sanitary sewers. The label states not to use the product in any facility where children may be present, and there are no outdoor uses permitted. EPA is also publishing a draft human health risk assessment and a draft ecological problem formulation at the time of the docket opening for a 60day public comment period. In this alpha-chlorohydrin proposed interim decision, the Agency has determined that no additional data are required and no changes to the affected registration or its labeling are currently required. At this time, EPA is making no human health or environmental safety findings associated with the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) screening of alpha-chlorohydrin, nor is it making an endangered species finding. EPA’s registration review decision for alphachlorohydrin will depend upon the result of an EDSP Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) section 408(p) determination, and Endangered Species Assessment (ESA) determination. The registration review docket for a pesticide generally includes earlier documents related to the registration review of the case. In the case of alphachlorohydrin the Agency expedited the registration review and is opening the docket with the proposed interim decision and supporting documents. The registration review program is being conducted under congressionally mandated time frames, and EPA recognizes the need both to make timely decision and to involve the public. Section 3(g) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136a(g)) required EPA to establish by regulation procedures for reviewing pesticide registrations, originally with a goal of reviewing each pesticide’s registration every 15 years to ensure that a pesticide continues to meet the FIFRA standard for registration. The Agency’s final rule to implement this program was issued in August 2006 and became effective in October 2006, and appears at 40 CFR part 155, subpart C. The Pesticide Registration Improvement Act of 2003 (PRIA) was amended and extended in September 2007. FIFRA, as amended by PRIA in 2007, requires EPA to complete registration review decisions by October 1, 2022, for all pesticides registered as of October 1, 2007. The registration review final rule at 40 CFR 155.58(a) provides for a minimum 60-day public comment period on all proposed interim registration review decisions. This comment period is intended to provide an opportunity for public input and a mechanism for initiating any necessary amendments to the proposed interim decisions. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. These comments will become part of the docket for the pesticide included in the Table. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late.’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the closing date and will provide a ‘‘Response to Comments Memorandum’’ in the docket. The interim registration review decision will explain the effect that any comments had on the interim decision and provide the Agency’s response to significant comments.

the case of alpha-chlorohydrin the Agency expedited the registration 
review and is opening the docket with the proposed interim decision and

    The registration review program is being conducted under

Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked 
``late.'' EPA is not required to consider these late comments.
    The Agency will carefully consider all comments received by the 
closing date and will provide a ``Response to Comments Memorandum'' in 
the docket. The interim registration review decision will explain the

Agency's response to significant comments.
