This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved through October 31, 2016. Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register (81 FR 19604) on April 5, 2016 during a 60day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments.

Abstract: As required by the Clean Air Act, EPA has regulations establishing emission standards and other requirements for various classes of vehicles, engines, and evaporative emissions. These regulations require that compliance be demonstrated prior to EPA granting a ‘‘Certificate of Conformity.’’ EPA charges fees for administering this certification program. In 2004 the fees program was expanded to include non-road categories of vehicles and engines, such as several categories of marine engines, locomotives, non-road recreational vehicles, and many non-road compression-ignition and spark-ignition engines. Manufacturers and importers of covered vehicles, engines and components are required to pay the applicable certification fees prior to their certification applications being reviewed.

Estimated number of respondents: 597 (total). Frequency of response: Annually, On occasion. Total estimated burden: 927 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $59,683 (per year), includes $9,965 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 586 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to an increase in the number of online fee forms from manufacturers. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.
