Abstract: The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Section 7(a) requires that any person who produces pesticides or pesticide devices subject to the Act must register with the Administrator of EPA the establishment in which the pesticide or the device is produced. This Section further requires that application for registration of any establishment shall include the name and address of the establishment and of the producer who operates such an establishment. FIFRA Section 7(c) requires that any producer operating an establishment registered under Section 7 report to the Administrator within 30 days after it is registered, and annually thereafter by March 1st for certain pesticide/device production and sales/distribution information. The producers must report which types and amounts of pesticides, active ingredients, or devices are currently being produced, were produced during the past year, and sold or distributed in the past year. The supporting regulations at 40 CFR part 167 provides the requirements and time schedules for submitting production information. During January 2016, an option has been added to allow pesticide establishment producers to electronically enter and submit their establishment registration information PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43197 and pesticide production information through EPA’s Central Data Exchange (CDX). A supplemental explanation is detailed in Section 5(b) of the Supporting Statement. Form Numbers: 3540–8, 3540–16. Respondents/affected entities: Pesticide-Producing and DeviceProducing Establishments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 167). Estimated number of respondents: 14,730 (total).

Changes in the Estimates: There is a net increase of 1,356,689 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The increase is the result of EPA’s updating of the methodology used to estimate the paperwork burden that involves the addition of previously unaccounted for burden for study data generation; while a decrease of approximately 23,000 hours reflects EPA’s receipt of fewer number of applications.
