Abstract: EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program implements Section 612 of the 1990 Clean Air Act (CAA) Amendments which authorized the Agency to establish regulatory requirements to ensure that ozone-depleting substances (ODS) are replaced by alternatives that reduce overall risks to human health and the environment, and to promote an expedited transition to safe substitutes. To promote this transition, the CAA specified that EPA establish an information clearinghouse of available alternatives, and coordinate with other federal agencies and the public on research, procurement practices, and information and technology transfers.

The label includes the name of the substitute refrigerant, when and by whom the retrofit was performed, environmental and safety information about the substitute refrigerant, and other information. This information is needed so that subsequent technicians working on the MVAC system will be able to service the equipment properly, decreasing the likelihood of significant refrigerant cross-contamination and potential failure of air conditioning systems and recovery/recycling equipment. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: New and used car dealers, gas service stations, top and body repair shops, general automotive repair shops, automotive repair shops not elsewhere classified, including air conditioning and radiator specialty shops. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under 40 CFR 82.180. Estimated number of respondents: 13 (total). Frequency of response: Once per retrofit of a motor vehicle air conditioner. Total estimated burden: 1 hour (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $15 (per year), includes $1 (per year) annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: There is a decrease of 8 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB (per year). This decrease is based on the decline of MVACs in service today using chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), specifically CFC–12. After 1994, new cars in the U.S. were no longer manufactured with CFC–12 MVACs. The number of MVACs originally designed to use CFC–12 as well as the number of those retrofitted has been decreasing every year and EPA estimates a continued reduction in the number of CFC–12 MVAC retrofits will occur during the next three years. EPA estimates that in 2017 there were 18,000 MVACs originally designed to use CFC– 12 operating in the U.S., and estimates that in 2018, 2019 and 2020 the number of cars originally designed to use CFC– 12 will decrease to 8,200, 3,500 and 1,500, respectively. Of these, EPA estimates that approximately 0.1% will be retrofitted annually to use alternative refrigerants. Therefore, EPA estimates that in 2018, 2019 and 2020 the number of MVACs to be retrofitted are 8, 4 and VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:06 Jul 19, 2018 Jkt 244001 34577 1, respectively; resulting in a total of 13 MVAC retrofits over the three years of this ICR. revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
