ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on September 30, 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: TSCA section 8(c) requires companies that manufacture, process, or distribute chemicals to maintain records of significant adverse reactions to health or the environment alleged to have been caused by such chemicals. Since section 8(c) includes no automatic reporting provision, EPA can obtain and use the information contained in company files only by inspecting those files or requiring reporting of records that relate to specific substances of concern. Therefore, under certain conditions, and using the provisions found in 40 CFR part 717, EPA may require companies to report such allegations to the Agency. EPA uses such information on a casespecific basis to corroborate suspected adverse health or environmental effects of chemicals already under review by EPA. The information is also useful to identify trends of adverse effects across the industry that may not be apparent to any one chemical company. This ICR addresses the information reporting and recordkeeping requirements found in 40 CFR part 717. Respondents may claim all or part of a notice as CBI. EPA will disclose VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Sep 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 information that is covered by a CBI claim only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance with, the procedures in 40 CFR part 2. Form Numbers: None. 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; see 40 CFR part 717. Estimated number of respondents: 13,160 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 25,527 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,911,471 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 1,405 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to EPA’s estimate of fewer potential respondents affected by the reporting requirement. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

    Under PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., an agency may not conduct or
