Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork burden for very small businesses affected by this collection. II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply to? Title: Chemical-Specific Rules, TSCA Section 8(a). ICR number: EPA ICR No. 1198.11. OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070–0067. ICR status: This ICR expired on June 30, 2018. 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 for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, 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: Section 8(a) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) authorizes the Administrator of EPA to promulgate rules that require persons who manufacture, import or process chemical substances and mixtures, or who propose to manufacture, import, or process chemical substances and mixtures, to maintain such records and submit such reports to EPA as may be reasonably required. Any chemical covered by TSCA for which EPA or another Federal agency has a reasonable need for information and which cannot be satisfied via other sources is a proper potential subject for a chemical-specific TSCA section 8(a) rulemaking. Information that may be collected under TSCA section 8(a) includes, but is not limited to, chemical names; categories of use; production or processing volume, byproducts of chemical production, processing, use or disposal; VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Jul 24, 2018 Jkt 244001 existing data concerning environmental and health effects; exposure data; and disposal information. Generally, EPA uses chemical-specific information under TSCA section 8(a) to evaluate the potential for adverse human health and environmental effects caused by the manufacture (including import), processing, use or disposal of identified chemical substances and mixtures. Additionally, EPA may use TSCA section 8(a) information to assess the need or set priorities for testing and/or further regulatory action. To the extent that reported information is not considered confidential, environmental groups, environmental justice advocates, state and local government entities and other members of the public will also have access to this information for their use. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory (see 40 CFR part 704). Respondents may claim all or part of a response 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. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to range between 60.75 and 70.75 hours per response, depending upon whether the response is by electronic means or paper-based, respectively. 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 primarily those businesses that enter the marketplace to manufacture (import) or process a chemical substance listed in 40 CFR part 704. These entities fall under NAICS codes 325, Chemical Manufacturers and Processors, and 324110, Petroleum Refineries. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 4. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1.0. Estimated total annual burden hours: 281 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $20,480. This includes an estimated burden cost of $20,480 and an estimated cost of $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35273 III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? There is an increase of 6 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects new reporting requirements in the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act to substantiate CBI claims. This change is the result of a program change. IV. 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.

II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply to? Title: ‘‘Foreign Purchaser Acknowledgement Statement of Unregistered Pesticides’’. ICR number: EPA ICR No. 0161.14. OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070–0027. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on March 31, 2019. 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 for EPA’s regulations in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, 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 enables the EPA to provide notice to foreign purchasers of unregistered pesticides exported from the United States that the pesticide product cannot be sold in the United States. Section 17(a)(2) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) requires an exporter of any pesticide not registered under FIFRA section 3 or sold under FIFRA section 6(a)(1) to obtain a signed statement from the foreign purchaser acknowledging that the purchaser is aware that the pesticide is not registered for use in, and cannot be sold in, the United States. A copy of this statement; which is known as the Foreign Purchaser Acknowledgement Statement (FPAS), must be transmitted to the Designated National Authority or appropriate official of the government in the importing country. This information is submitted in the form of annual or per-shipment statements to the EPA, which maintains original records and transmits copies, along with an explanatory letter to appropriate government officials of the countries which are importing the pesticide. In addition to the export notification for unregistered pesticides, FIFRA PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requires that all exported pesticides include appropriate labeling. There are different requirements for registered and unregistered products. Export labeling requirements meet the definition of third-party notification. In the interests of consolidating various related information collection requests, this ICR includes the burden estimates for the FPAS requirement for unregistered pesticides, as well as the labeling requirement for all exported pesticides, both registered and unregistered. These burdens have been consolidated in this information collection since the implementation of the 1993 pesticide export policy governing the export of pesticides, devices, and active ingredients used in producing pesticides. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 1 to 8 hours per response, depending on the activity. 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 individuals or entities engaged that either manufacture and export pesticides or that reformulate or repackage and export pesticides. The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code assigned to the parties responding to this information is 3250A1. Estimated total number of potential respondents: 2,240 annually. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 2. Estimated total annual burden hours: 16,660 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $1,087,102. This includes an estimated burden cost of $1,087,102 and an estimated cost of $0 or capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? There is a decrease of 1,333 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease reflects EPA’s decrease in the annual number of foreign purchaser acknowledgment statements submitted (from 3,024 to 2,774) which resulted in a change to the annual burden hours for respondents from 3,205 in the previous renewal to 2,940 in the current renewal. E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 143 / Wednesday, July 25, 2018 / Notices The respondent burden associated with labeling requirements for unregistered exported pesticides decreased from 4,888 in the previous renewal to 4,480 in the current renewal. The respondent burden associated with labeling requirements for registered exported pesticides decreased from 9,900 in the previous renewal to 9,240 in the current renewal. The decrease in burden is due to a decrease in the estimated number of respondents per calendar year of 2015–2017. Total labor costs for respondents decreased due to a decrease in the estimated number of respondents per calendar year from 2015–2017 and changes in the wage rates made to reflect current wage rates. The new wage estimates incorporated higher estimates for benefits than was used in the previous renewal. These changes are an adjustment. IV. 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. What information is EPA particularly interested in?

    Pursuant to PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), 
EPA specifically solicits comments and information to enable it to:
    1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility.
    2. Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimates of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used.
    3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected.
    4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses. In particular, EPA is requesting comments from 
very small businesses (those that employ less than 25) on examples of 
specific additional efforts that EPA could make to reduce the paperwork 
burden for very small businesses affected by this collection.

II. What information collection activity or ICR does this action apply 
to?

    Title: ``Foreign Purchaser Acknowledgement Statement of 
Unregistered Pesticides''.
    ICR number: EPA ICR No. 0161.14.
    OMB control number: OMB Control No. 2070-0027.
    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on March 31, 
2019. 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 for EPA's 
regulations in title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), after 
appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR 
part 9, 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 enables the EPA to provide 
notice to foreign purchasers of unregistered pesticides exported from 
the United States that the pesticide product cannot be sold in the 
United States. Section 17(a)(2) of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, 
and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) requires an exporter of any pesticide not 
registered under FIFRA section 3 or sold under FIFRA section 6(a)(1) to 
obtain a signed statement from the foreign purchaser acknowledging that 
the purchaser is aware that the pesticide is not registered for use in, 
and cannot be sold in, the United States. A copy of this statement; 
which is known as the Foreign Purchaser Acknowledgement Statement 
(FPAS), must be transmitted to the Designated National Authority or 
appropriate official of the government in the importing country. This 
information is submitted in the form of annual or per-shipment 
statements to the EPA, which maintains original records and transmits 
copies, along with an explanatory letter to appropriate government 
officials of the countries which are importing the pesticide.
    In addition to the export notification for unregistered pesticides, 
FIFRA requires that all exported pesticides include appropriate 
labeling. There are different requirements for registered and 
unregistered products. Export labeling requirements meet the definition 
of third-party notification. In the interests of consolidating various 
related information collection requests, this ICR includes the burden 
estimates for the FPAS requirement for unregistered pesticides, as well 
as the labeling requirement for all exported pesticides, both 
registered and unregistered. These burdens have been consolidated in 
this information collection since the implementation of the 1993 
pesticide export policy governing the export of pesticides, devices, 
and active ingredients used in producing pesticides.
    Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to be 1 to 8 
hours per response, depending on the activity. 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 individuals or entities engaged that either manufacture 
and export pesticides or that reformulate or repackage and export 
pesticides. The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) 
code assigned to the parties responding to this information is 3250A1.
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 2,240 annually.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 2.
    Estimated total annual burden hours: 16,660 hours.
    Estimated total annual costs: $1,087,102. This includes an 
estimated burden cost of $1,087,102 and an estimated cost of $0 or 
capital investment or maintenance and operational costs.

III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval?

    There is a decrease of 1,333 hours in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease reflects EPA's decrease in the annual 
number of foreign purchaser acknowledgment statements submitted (from 
3,024 to 2,774) which resulted in a change to the annual burden hours 
for respondents from 3,205 in the previous renewal to 2,940 in the 
current renewal.

[[Page 35275]]

The respondent burden associated with labeling requirements for 
unregistered exported pesticides decreased from 4,888 in the previous 
renewal to 4,480 in the current renewal. The respondent burden 
associated with labeling requirements for registered exported 
pesticides decreased from 9,900 in the previous renewal to 9,240 in the 
current renewal. The decrease in burden is due to a decrease in the 
estimated number of respondents per calendar year of 2015-2017. Total 
labor costs for respondents decreased due to a decrease in the 
estimated number of respondents per calendar year from 2015-2017 and 
changes in the wage rates made to reflect current wage rates. The new 
wage estimates incorporated higher estimates for benefits than was used 
in the previous renewal. These changes are an adjustment.

IV. 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. If you have any questions about this ICR or 
the approval process, please contact the person listed under FOR
