The telephone number for the Docket Center is 202–566–1744. For additional information about EPA’s public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/ dockets. Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7521 et seq.) manufacturers and importers of on-highway motorcycles must have a certificate of conformity issued by EPA covering any vehicle they intend to offer for sale in the United States. A certificate of conformity represents that the respective vehicle conforms to all applicable emissions requirements. In issuing a certificate of conformity, EPA reviews vehicle information and emissions test data to determine if the required testing has been performed and the required emissions levels have been demonstrated. After a certificate of conformity has been issued, the Agency may request additional information to verify that the product continues to meet its certified emissions standards throughout its useful life. 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 are listed in 40 CFR part 9. The current ICR for on-highway motorcycle emissions certification and compliance information is set to expire on September 30, 2016. This program was previously included under the current ICR for light-duty vehicle $149,489/year (or $72.00/hour). Commission staff finds that the work done for this information collection is typically done by wage categories similar to those at FERC. E:\FR\FM\29JYN1.SGM 29JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: FERC-539, Gas Pipeline Certificates: Import & Export Related 
Applications.
    OMB Control No.: 1902-0062.
    Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC-539 information 
collection requirements with no changes to the reporting requirements.
    Abstract: Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) \1\ provides, in 
part, that ``. . . . no person shall export any natural gas from the 
United States to a foreign country or import any natural gas from a 
foreign country without first having secured an order from the 
Commission authorizing it to do so.'' The 1992 amendments to Section 3 
of the NGA concern importation or exportation from/to a nation which 
has a free trade agreement with the United States and requires that 
such importation or exportation: (1) Shall be deemed to be a ``first 
sale'' (i.e. not a sale for a resale) and (2) shall be deemed to be 
consistent with the public interest. Applications for such importation 
or exportation should be granted without modification or delay.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 15 U.S.C. 717-717w.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The regulatory functions of Section 3 are shared by the Commission 
and the Secretary of Energy, Department of Energy (DOE). The Commission 
has the authority to approve or disapprove the construction and 
operation of particular facilities, the site at which such facilities 
shall be located, and, with respect to natural gas that involves the 
construction of new domestic facilities, the place of entry for imports 
or exit for exports. DOE approves the importation or exportation of the 
natural gas commodity.\2\ Additionally, pursuant to the DOE Delegation 
Order and Executive Order Nos. 10485 and 12038, the Commission has the 
authority to issue Presidential Permits for natural gas facilities 
which cross an international border of the United States. Persons 
seeking Section 3 authorizations or Presidential Permits from the 
Commission file applications

[[Page 49975]]

for such requests pursuant to Part 153 of the Commission's 
Regulations.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Secretary of DOE's current delegation of authority to the 
Commission relating to import and export facilities was renewed by 
the Secretary's Delegation Order No. 00-004.00A, effective May 16, 
2006.
    \3\ Part 153, Subpart B and Subpart C.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Type of Respondents: The respondents include all jurisdictional 
natural gas companies seeking authorization from the Commission to 
import or export natural gas.
    Estimate of Annual Burden: \4\ The Commission estimates the annual 
public reporting burden for the information collection as:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ The Commission defines burden as the total time, effort, or 
financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, 
retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal 
agency. For further explanation of what is included in the 
information collection burden, reference 5 Code of Federal 
Regulations 1320.3.
    \5\ The estimates for cost per response are derived using the 
2015 FERC average salary plus benefits of $149,489/year (or $72.00/
hour). Commission staff finds that the work done for this 
information collection is typically done by wage categories similar 
to those at FERC.

    Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Commission, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden and 
cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to

to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
