The current TRI chemical list contains 595 chemicals and 31 chemical categories. Environmental agencies, industry, and the public use TRI data for a wide variety of purposes. EPA program offices use TRI data, along with other data, to help establish programmatic priorities, evaluate potential hazards to human health and the natural environment, and undertake appropriate regulatory and/or enforcement activities. Environmental and public interest groups use the data to better understand toxic chemical releases at the community level and to work with industry, government agencies, and others to promote reductions in toxic chemical releases. Industrial facilities use the TRI data to evaluate the efficiency of their production processes and to help track and communicate their progress in achieving pollution prevention goals. The TRI data are unique in providing a multi-media (air, water, and land) picture of toxic chemical releases, transfers, and other waste management activities by covered facilities on a yearly basis. While other environmental media programs provide some toxic chemical data and related permit data, TRI data are unique with regard to the types of chemicals and industry sectors covered as well as the frequency of reporting. Facilities subject to TRI reporting must submit reports for each calendar year to EPA and the State or Indian Country in which they are located by July 1 of the following year. Respondents may claim trade secrecy for a chemical’s identity as described in EPCRA Section 322 and its implementing regulations in 40 CFR part 350. EPA will disclose information covered by a claim of trade secrecy only to the extent permitted by and in accordance with the procedures in 40 CFR part 350 and 40 CFR part 2). Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to range between 22.0 hours and 35.7 hours per response, depending upon the nature of the response. Burden is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b). The ICR, which is available in the docket along with other related materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized here: Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are facilities that submit annual reports under section 313 of EPCRA and section 6607 of PPA. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:59 May 26, 2017 Jkt 241001 Estimated total number of potential respondents: 21,856. Frequency of response: Annual. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 3.5. Estimated total annual burden hours: 3,597,275 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $199,217,090. This includes an estimated burden cost of $199,217,090 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? There is an increase of 41,277 hours (from 3,555,998 hours to 3,597,275 hours) in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects a slight increase in the number of facilities reporting to TRI. This change is an adjustment. IV. What changes does this ICR propose? OMB approved the ICR for Form R, the Form A Certification Statement, and Form R Schedule 1 on November 24, 2014, with the expiration date of November 30, 2017. EPA proposes making several changes to the TRI reporting forms and associated instructions. These revisions are aimed at improving the user experience by clarifying the intent of questions. 1. Provide Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) code as a separate element on the form. (Part I: Section 4.1) 2. When reporting a metal compound, indicate whether report also includes the elemental metal. (Part II: Section 1) 3. Add sub-categories of uses. (Part II: Sections 3.2a, b and Sections 3.3a, b, c) 4. Add finer gradation for range codes used for Maximum Amount of the EPCRA Section 313 Chemical On-site at Any Time during the Calendar Year. (Part II: Section 4) 5. Add management codes for the transfer of waste to POTWs. (Part II: Section 6.1) 6. Separate 8.8 into separate boxes for quantities associated with (1) remedial actions, (2) catastrophic events, and (3) one-time events not associated with production processes. (Part II: Section 8.8) 7. When reporting an air release of chromium, indicate whether the release contains Chromium-VI (hexavalent chromium). (Part II: Section 9.1) 8. Add a free text field for each chemical listed on Form A. (Part II: Section 3) 9. Add a free text field for facilitylevel info on Form A. (Part III: Section 1.1) PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24703 V. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.
