ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on August 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: 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. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59215 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, are subject to seizure by FDA, and may result in civil penalties. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Pesticide manufacturers, IR–4, and similar entities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under FIFRA section 408. Estimated number of respondents: 165 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 285,128 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $27,475,223.58 (per year), there is no cost for capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an increase of 48,328 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is a result of a change in the estimated average number of tolerance petitions submitted annually (from 137 to 165), which changes the annual burden hours for respondents. There is no change in the per tolerance petition burden. This change is an adjustment. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in respondent burden in this ICR from the most recently approved ICR. This is due to several reasons: (1) This ICR assumes all existing sources will have to refamiliarize with the regulatory requirements each year; (2) there is an estimated increase in the respondent universe since the last ICR, with an addition of two new sources per year; and (3) the number of responses associated with waiver request and alternative method/monitoring was corrected for consistency. This results in an increase in the labor hours, costs, and total number of responses. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), and any changes, 
or additions, to the Provisions are specified at 40 CFR part 63, 
subpart O. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit

results. Owners or operators are also required to maintain 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required 
semiannually.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Ethylene oxide sterilization and 
fumigation facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart O).
    Estimated number of respondents: 125 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 9,200 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $1,630,000 (per year), which includes 
$681,000 in either annualized capital/startup or operation & 
maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in 
respondent burden in this ICR from the most recently approved ICR. This 
is due to several reasons: (1) This ICR assumes all existing sources 
will have to re-familiarize with the regulatory requirements each year; 
(2) there is an estimated increase in the respondent universe since the 
last ICR, with an addition of two new sources per year; and (3) the 
number of responses associated with waiver request and alternative 
method/monitoring was corrected for consistency. This results in an 
increase in the labor hours, costs, and total number of responses.
