Abstract: This ICR will consolidate two separate ICRs that currently individually cover EPA Declaration Forms 3520–1, 3520–21, and 3520–8. EPA Declaration Form 3520–1 is used by importers of on-highway vehicles and motorcycles and EPA Declaration Form 3520–21 is used by importers of nonroad vehicles, engines and equipment to help facilitate importation of products at U.S. Borders. Each form identifies the regulated category of engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the burden of EPA Form 3520– 8 which is used to request final importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers (ICIs) of onhighway vehicles who are required to bring the on-highway vehicles into compliance and provide test results. This form is currently covered by OMB 2060–0095. EPA is consolidating these two ICRS due to the effort being undertaken by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require electronic filing for all importers. Over the last several years, CBP has been developing the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) for electronic filing. By the end of 2016, ACE will become the primary system the trade community and other importers will use to report imports and exports. Through ACE as the single window, manual processes will be streamlined and automated, and paper submissions (e.g., fillable PDFs) will essentially be eliminated. However, EPA will continue to maintain the forms on our Web site in fillable PDF format. EPA does not collect the forms, but rather makes them available to importers and CBP to facilitate entry of goods at the port. EPA may ask for them upon request to assist CPB and/or EPA enforcement personnel for any given import for which there are questions or issues. The forms are primarily used by CBP at the time of importation to assist CBP in making determination if entry should be allowed. CBP regulations require that the forms be submitted as applicable at the time of entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74. Form Numbers: 3520–1, 3520–21, 3520–8. Frequency of Response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may be used.) Respondents/Affected Entities: Individual importers, or companies who import and/or manufacture on-highway E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1
