SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. What information is EPA particularly interested in? Pursuant to PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), EPA specifically solicits comments and information to enable it to: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility. 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork burden for very small businesses affected by this collection. II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply to? Title: Pesticide Registration Fees Program. ICR number: EPA ICR No. 2330.03. PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070–0179. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 2017. 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 in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, 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: This ICR covers the paperwork burden hours and costs associated with the information collection activities under the pesticide registration fee programs implemented through the Office of Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency. Pesticide registrants are required by statute to pay an annual registration maintenance fee for all products registered under Section 3 and Section 24(c) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). In addition, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA) amended FIFRA in 2004 to create a registration service fee system for applications for specific pesticide registration, amended registration, and associated tolerance actions (Section 33). This ICR specifically covers the activities related to the collection of the annual registration maintenance fees, the registration service fees and the burden associated with the submission of requests for fees to be waived. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,681 hours for the Pesticide Registration Maintenance Fee program and 6,840 hours for the Pesticide Registration Service Fee Waiver program. Burden is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b). The ICR, which is available in the docket along with other related materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized here: Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are identified by the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) codes: 32532—Pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing; 32518—Other Basic Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing; E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM 26SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 186 / Monday, September 26, 2016 / Notices 32519—Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing; and 9641—Regulation of Agricultural Marketing and Commodities. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 1,471. Frequency of response: Annually and on occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. Estimated total annual burden hours: Ranges from 1,681 to 6,840 hours depending on the program. Estimated total annual costs for both programs: $631,791. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? For the Pesticide Registration Maintenance Fee program there is decrease of 312 hours (from 1993 to 1681) hours in the total annual estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. The reason for the decrease was a reduction in the number responses from 1,744 to 1,471. The total estimated annual respondent burden for the pesticide registration service fee waivers information collection has increased from 5,914 hours in the existing ICR to 6,840 hours for this renewal, due to the increase of respondent’s usage of the newer waiver provisions allowed under PRIA. These changes are adjustments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. What information is EPA particularly interested in?

    Pursuant to PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), 
EPA specifically solicits comments and information to enable it to:
    1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility.
    2. Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimates of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used.
    3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected.
    4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated

specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork 
burden for very small businesses affected by this collection.

II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply 
to?

    Title: Pesticide Registration Fees Program.
    ICR number: EPA ICR No. 2330.03.
    OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070-0179.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on June 30, 
2017. 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 in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after 
appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR 
part 9, 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: This ICR covers the paperwork burden hours and costs 
associated with the information collection activities under the 
pesticide registration fee programs implemented through the Office of 
Pesticide Programs, Environmental Protection Agency. Pesticide 
registrants are required by statute to pay an annual registration 
maintenance fee for all products registered under Section 3 and Section 
24(c) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act 
(FIFRA). In addition, the Pesticide Registration Improvement Act (PRIA) 
amended FIFRA in 2004 to create a registration service fee system for 
applications for specific pesticide registration, amended registration, 
and associated tolerance actions (Section 33). This ICR specifically 
covers the activities related to the collection of the annual 
registration maintenance fees, the registration service fees and the 
burden associated with the submission of requests for fees to be 
waived.
    Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1,681 
hours for the Pesticide Registration Maintenance Fee program and 6,840 
hours for the Pesticide Registration Service Fee Waiver program. Burden 
is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    The ICR, which is available in the docket along with other related 
materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities 
and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized here:
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this ICR are identified by the North American Industrial Classification 
System (NAICS) codes: 32532--Pesticide and other agricultural chemical 
manufacturing; 32518--Other Basic Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing;

32519--Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing; and 9641--Regulation 
of Agricultural Marketing and Commodities.
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 1,471.
    Frequency of response: Annually and on occasion.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: Ranges from 1,681 to 6,840 
hours depending on the program.
    Estimated total annual costs for both programs: $631,791.

III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval?

    For the Pesticide Registration Maintenance Fee program there is 
decrease of 312 hours (from 1993 to 1681) hours in the total annual 
estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR 
currently approved by OMB. The reason for the decrease was a reduction 
in the number responses from 1,744 to 1,471. The total estimated annual 
respondent burden for the pesticide registration service fee waivers 
information collection has increased from 5,914 hours in the existing 
ICR to 6,840 hours for this renewal, due to the increase of 
respondent's usage of the newer waiver provisions allowed under PRIA. 
These changes are adjustments.

IV. What is the next step in the process for this ICR?

    EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as 
appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for 
review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another 
Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to
