At that time, the EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: The information collection includes initial reports and periodic recordkeeping necessary for the EPA to ensure compliance with Federal standards for volatile organic compounds in consumer products.

Form Numbers: None. Respondents/Affected Entities: Manufacturers, distributors, and importers of consumer products. Respondent’s Obligation To Respond: Responses to the collection are mandatory under 40 CFR part 59, subpart C, National Volatile Organic Compound Emission Standards for Consumer Products. Estimated Number of Respondents: 300 (total). Frequency of Response: On occasion. Total Estimated Burden: 16,126 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total Estimated Cost: $1,765,427 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 13,487 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to adjustments to the estimated hours for each level of review. These adjustments are consistent with the assumptions used routinely in ICR renewals, and are discussed in the supporting statements for this action. E:\FR\FM\22MRN1.SGM 22MRN1
