The information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the submission of any confidential information. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States. Respondent’s obligation to respond: The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of a sewage NDZ (CWA section 312(f)). The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of an UNDS NDZ or a review of an UNDS discharge determination or standard (CWA section 312(n)). Estimated number of respondents: 16 (total). Frequency of response: One time. Total estimated burden: 1,083 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $54,938 (per year), includes $998 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: It is anticipated that the burden hours will stay the same as the current estimate or decrease due to changes in respondent universe when we revise them for this ICR extension. Cost estimates will likely remain the same or rise at the time of revision because of changes in the state and federal labor costs. Dated: August 31, 2018.

At that time, 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 authority for these requirements is section 112(r) of the 1990 CAA Amendments, which provides for the prevention and mitigation of accidental releases. Section 112(r) mandates that EPA promulgate a list of ‘‘regulated substances’’ with threshold quantities and establish procedures for the addition and deletion of substances from the list of regulated substances. Processes at stationary sources that contain more than a threshold quantity of a regulated substance are subject to accidental release prevention regulations promulgated under CAA section 112(r)(7). These two rules are codified as 40 CFR part 68. Part 68 requires that sources with more than a threshold quantity of a regulated substance in a process develop and implement a risk management program and submit a risk management plan (RMP) to EPA. EPA uses RMPs to conduct oversight of regulated sources, and to communicate information concerning them to federal, state, and local agencies and the public, as appropriate. The compliance schedule for the part 68 requirements was established by rule on June 20, 1996. The burden to sources that are currently covered by part 68, for initial rule compliance, including rule familiarization and program implementation was accounted for in previous ICRs. Sources submitted their first RMPs by June 21, 1999. For most sources, the next compliance deadlines occurred (and will occur) thereafter at five-year intervals—in 2004, 2009, 2014 and 2019. Therefore, resubmissions tend to occur in ‘‘waves’’ peaking each fifth E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2018 / Notices year. A source submitting an RMP update to comply with its five-year compliance deadline will often submit its updated RMP several days or weeks early to ensure it is received by EPA before its deadline, and other sources revised and resubmitted their RMPs between the five-year deadlines because of changes occurring at the source that triggered an earlier resubmission. These sources were then assigned a new fiveyear compliance deadline based on the date of their most recent revised plan submission. However, because most sources are not required to resubmit earlier than their five-year compliance deadline, the next RMP submission deadline for most sources occurs in 2019. The remaining sources have been assigned a different deadline in 2020, 2021, 2022 or 2023, based on the date of their most recent submission. Only the first three years are within the period covered by this ICR. In this ICR, EPA has accounted for burden for new sources that may become subject to the regulations, currently covered sources with compliance deadlines in this ICR period (2019 to 2021), sources that are out of compliance since the last regulatory deadline but are expected to comply during this ICR period, and sources that have deadlines beyond this ICR period but are required to comply with certain prevention program documentation requirements during this ICR period.

Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are chemical manufacturers, petroleum refineries, water treatment systems, agricultural chemical distributors, refrigerated warehouses, chemical distributors, non-chemical manufacturers, wholesale fuel distributors, energy generation facilities, etc. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 68). Estimated number of respondents: 12,500 (total). This figure will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Frequency of response: Sources must resubmit RMPs at least every five years and update certain on-site documentation more frequently. Total estimated burden: 80,546 hours (per year). This figure will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $6,736,212 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:49 Sep 10, 2018 Jkt 244001 operation maintenance costs. This figure will be updated with most recent available wage rates from BLS and to account for any changes in O&M costs, burden and number of respondents. Changes in estimates: The above burden estimates are based on the current approved ICR. In the final notice for the renewed ICR, EPA will publish revised burden estimates based on updates to respondent data and unit costs. The revised burden estimates may increase from the current ICR, because the new ICR period will include a fiveyear reporting cycle year, whereas the current approved ICR period did not include a five-year reporting cycle year. Any change in burden will be described and explained in this section when the updated ICR Supporting Statement is completed during the 60-day OMB review period. Dated: August 20, 2018.

information about EPA's public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/dockets.
    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting 
comments and information to enable it to: (i) 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; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of 
the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (iv) 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. 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. At that time, 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 authority for these 
requirements is section 112(r) of the 1990 CAA Amendments, which 
provides for the prevention and mitigation of accidental releases. 
Section 112(r) mandates that EPA promulgate a list of ``regulated 
substances'' with threshold quantities and establish procedures for the 
addition and deletion of substances from the list of regulated 
substances. Processes at stationary sources that contain more than a 
threshold quantity of a regulated substance are subject to accidental 
release prevention regulations promulgated under CAA section 112(r)(7). 
These two rules are codified as 40 CFR part 68.
    Part 68 requires that sources with more than a threshold quantity 
of a regulated substance in a process develop and implement a risk 
management program and submit a risk management plan (RMP) to EPA. EPA 
uses RMPs to conduct oversight of regulated sources, and to communicate 
information concerning them to federal, state, and local agencies and 
the public, as appropriate.
    The compliance schedule for the part 68 requirements was 
established by rule on June 20, 1996. The burden to sources that are 
currently covered by part 68, for initial rule compliance, including 
rule familiarization and program implementation was accounted for in 
previous ICRs. Sources submitted their first RMPs by June 21, 1999. For 
most sources, the next compliance deadlines occurred (and will occur) 
thereafter at five-year intervals--in 2004, 2009, 2014 and 2019. 
Therefore, resubmissions tend to occur in ``waves'' peaking each fifth

[[Page 45929]]

year. A source submitting an RMP update to comply with its five-year 
compliance deadline will often submit its updated RMP several days or 
weeks early to ensure it is received by EPA before its deadline, and 
other sources revised and resubmitted their RMPs between the five-year 
deadlines because of changes occurring at the source that triggered an 
earlier resubmission. These sources were then assigned a new five-year 
compliance deadline based on the date of their most recent revised plan 
submission. However, because most sources are not required to resubmit 
earlier than their five-year compliance deadline, the next RMP 
submission deadline for most sources occurs in 2019. The remaining 
sources have been assigned a different deadline in 2020, 2021, 2022 or 
2023, based on the date of their most recent submission. Only the first 
three years are within the period covered by this ICR.
    In this ICR, EPA has accounted for burden for new sources that may 
become subject to the regulations, currently covered sources with 
compliance deadlines in this ICR period (2019 to 2021), sources that 
are out of compliance since the last regulatory deadline but are 
expected to comply during this ICR period, and sources that have 
deadlines beyond this ICR period but are required to comply with 
certain prevention program documentation requirements during this ICR 
period.
    Form Numbers: Risk Management Plan Form: EPA Form 8700-25; CBI 
Substantiation Form: EPA Form 8700-27; CBI Unsanitized Data Element 
Form: EPA Form 8700-28.
    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are chemical manufacturers, petroleum refineries, water 
treatment systems, agricultural chemical distributors, refrigerated 
warehouses, chemical distributors, non-chemical manufacturers, 
wholesale fuel distributors, energy generation facilities, etc.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 68).
    Estimated number of respondents: 12,500 (total). This figure will 
be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period.
    Frequency of response: Sources must resubmit RMPs at least every 
five years and update certain on-site documentation more frequently.
    Total estimated burden: 80,546 hours (per year). This figure will 
be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Burden is 
defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $6,736,212 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation maintenance costs. This figure will be updated 
with most recent available wage rates from BLS and to account for any 
changes in O&M costs, burden and number of respondents.
    Changes in estimates: The above burden estimates are based on the 
current approved ICR. In the final notice for the renewed ICR, EPA will 
publish revised burden estimates based on updates to respondent data 
and unit costs. The revised burden estimates may increase from the 
current ICR, because the new ICR period will include a five-year 
reporting cycle year, whereas the current approved ICR period did not 
include a five-year reporting cycle year. Any change in burden will be 
described and explained in this section when the updated ICR Supporting 
Statement is completed during the 60-day OMB review period.
