ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on February 28, 2017. 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: This information collection supports the consultation process by which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will refine and enhance its logo redesign and education approach for the Safer Choice Product Recognition Program (Safer Choice program), formerly known as the Design for the Environment Program. The Safer Choice program recognizes products where all ingredients meet EPA’s stringent requirements for human health and the environment as found in the Safer Choice Standard. Under the encouragement of the current program, leading companies have already made great progress in developing safer, highly effective chemical products. Since the program’s inception in 1997, formulators have been using the program as a portal to OPPT’s unique chemical expertise, information resources, and guidance on greener chemistry. Safer Choice partners enjoy Agency recognition, including the use of the Safer Choice label on qualifying products. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:24 Mar 03, 2017 Jkt 241001 The Safer Choice program adopted a new logo in March 2015 in response to stakeholder feedback. Following the launch of the new logo, EPA will conduct consumer surveys to gauge consumer recognition of the new logo and understand how the new logo and educational activities are diffusing over time and changing purchasing decisions. This ICR will enable Safer Choice to collect feedback from consumers through focus groups and online surveys and integrate it into the program, which will help to strengthen the visibility of the logo and program, improve product recognition among formulators and partners, and further promote chemical safety. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are individual adult consumers who are members of the general population. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Responses to the collection of information are voluntary. Respondents may claim all or part of a notice confidential. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a claim of confidentiality only to the extent permitted by, and in accordance with, the procedures in TSCA section 14 and 40 CFR part 2. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 2,330. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total burden: 777 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Estimated total costs: $29,513 (per year), includes no annualized capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an increase of 333 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects an increase in per-response burden estimates for completing the consumer online survey based on experience from the previous ICR. This decrease is partially offset by a reduction in the total number of responses because EPA will conduct fewer online consumer surveys. This change is an adjustment.

    Abstract: This information collection supports the consultation 
process by which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will

Safer Choice Product Recognition Program (Safer Choice program), 
formerly known as the Design for the Environment Program. The Safer

recognition, including the use of the Safer Choice label on qualifying

    The Safer Choice program adopted a new logo in March 2015 in 
response to stakeholder feedback. Following the launch of the new logo, 
EPA will conduct consumer surveys to gauge consumer recognition of the 
new logo and understand how the new logo and educational activities are

help to strengthen the visibility of the logo and program, improve 
product recognition among formulators and partners, and further promote 
chemical safety.

this ICR are individual adult consumers who are members of the general 
population.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Responses to the collection of 
information are voluntary. Respondents may claim all or part of a 
notice confidential. EPA will disclose information that is covered by a 
claim of confidentiality only to the extent permitted by, and in 
accordance with, the procedures in TSCA section 14 and 40 CFR part 2.
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 2,330.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total burden: 777 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.3(b).
