Section 5 authorizes EPA to determine by rule (i.e., a significant new use rule or SNUR), after considering all relevant factors, that a use of a chemical substance represents a significant new use. If EPA determines that a use of a chemical substance is a significant new use, section 5 requires persons to submit a significant new use notice (SNUN) to EPA at least 90 days before they manufacture, import, or process the substance for that use. EPA uses the information obtained through this collection to evaluate the health and environmental effects of the significant new use. EPA may take regulatory actions under TSCA section 5, 6 or 7 to control the activities for which it has received a SNUR notice. These actions include orders to limit or prohibit the manufacture, importation, processing, distribution in commerce, use or disposal of chemical substances. If EPA does not take action, section 5 also requires EPA to publish a Federal Register notice explaining the reasons for not taking action. This information collection addresses the reporting and recordkeeping requirements inherent in TSCA section 5 significant new use rules.

    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on July 31, 
2016. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or 
sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending 
at OMB.
    Under PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., 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 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: Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) 
provides EPA with a regulatory mechanism to monitor and, if necessary, 
control significant new uses of chemical substances. Section 5 
authorizes EPA to determine by rule (i.e., a significant new use rule 
or SNUR), after considering all relevant factors, that a use of a 
chemical substance represents a significant new use. If EPA determines 
that a use of a chemical substance is a significant new use, section 5 
requires persons to submit a significant new use notice (SNUN) to EPA 
at least 90 days before they manufacture, import, or process the 
substance for that use.
    EPA uses the information obtained through this collection to 
evaluate the health and environmental effects of the significant new 
use. EPA may take regulatory actions under TSCA section 5, 6 or 7 to 
control the activities for which it has received a SNUR notice. These 
actions include orders to limit or prohibit the manufacture, 
importation, processing, distribution in commerce, use or disposal of 
chemical substances. If EPA does not take action, section 5 also 
requires EPA to publish a Federal Register notice explaining the 
reasons for not taking action. This information collection addresses 
the reporting and recordkeeping requirements inherent in TSCA section 5 
significant new use rules.
    Respondents may claim all or part of their submission as 
confidential. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a claim 
of confidentiality only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance 
with, the procedures in TSCA section 14 and 40 CFR part 2.
    Form Numbers: EPA Form No. 7710-25.
    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this ICR are companies that manufacture, process, import, or distribute 
in commerce chemical substances or mixtures.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 721).
    Estimated number of respondents: 6 (total).
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 1,025 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $100,595 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 289 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase reflects EPA's updating the number of 
affected sites, the average number of SNUNs submitted annually, 
recalculating the average number of chemicals per SNUR, and correcting 
rounding errors in the burden estimate for completing a SNUN and rule 
familiarization. This change is an adjustment.
