Abstract: EPA is required under section 183(e) of the Clean Air Act to regulate Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from the use of consumer and commercial products. Under regulations promulgated on February 26, 2007 (72 FR 8428) manufacturers of new portable gasoline containers are required to obtain certificates of conformity with the Clean Air Act, effective January 1, 2009. This ICR covers the burdens associated with this certification process. EPA reviews information submitted in the application for certification to determine if the container design conforms to applicable requirements and to verify that the required testing has been performed. The certificate holder is required to keep records on the testing and collect and keep warranty and defect information for annual reporting on in-use performance of their products. The respondent must also retain records on the units produced, apply serial numbers to individual containers, and track the serial numbers to their certificates of conformity. Any information submitted for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to EPA regulations at 40 CFR 2.201 et seq. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers of new portable gasoline containers from 0.25 to 10.0 gallons in capacity. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory 40 CFR part 59, subpart F. Estimated number of respondents: 8 (total). Frequency of response: Yearly for warranty reports; at least once every five years for certificate renewals. Total estimated burden: 250 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b) Total estimated cost: $32,419.45 (per year), includes $20,452 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of 71 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase of the estimated burden and cost estimates is due to a change in the estimated cost of labor and additional testing requirements for new portable fuel container families to comply with the requirements for PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 evaporative testing promulgated in 40 CFR part 59.

Abstract: EPA is responsible for the regulation of pesticides under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). As revised in 2006 and 2013, EPA regulations at 40 CFR part 26 protect the subjects of ‘‘third-party’’ human research (i.e., research that is not conducted or supported by EPA). In addition to other protections, the regulations require affected entities to submit information to EPA and an institutional review board (IRB) prior to initiating, and to EPA upon the completion of, certain studies that involve human research participants. The information collection activity VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Aug 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 consists of activity-driven reporting and recordkeeping requirements for those who intend to conduct research for submission to EPA under the pesticide laws. If such research involves intentional dosing of human subjects, these individuals (respondents) are required to submit study protocols to EPA and a cognizant local Human Subjects IRB before such research is initiated so that the scientific design and ethical standards that will be employed during the proposed study may be reviewed and approved. Also, respondents are required to submit information about the ethical conduct of completed research that involved human subjects when such research is submitted to EPA. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are any entities that submits protocols and study reports for environmental research involving human subjects under FIFRA and/or FFDCA. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 26). Estimated total number of potential respondents: 7 annually for research involving intentional exposure of human subjects and 10 annually for all other submitted research with human subjects. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total burden: 10,242 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Estimated total costs: $ 923,121 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Changes in the estimates: There is a decrease of 4,711 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a reduction in the preparation of protocols and studies. This change is an adjustment. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.
