    ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on October 
31, 2018. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or 
sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending 
at OMB. EPA did not receive any comments in response to the previously 
provided public review opportunity issued in the Federal Register on

    Under PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., 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 are displayed either by publication in the

control numbers for certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR 
part 9.
    Abstract: This ICR covers the paperwork burden associated with two 
types of pesticide registration requests made by states, U.S. 
Territories, or Federal agencies under the Federal Insecticide, 
Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), 7 U.S.C. 136a et seq.: (1) 
Emergency exemption requests under FIFRA section 18, which allow for an 
unregistered use pesticide; and (2) Requests by states to register a 
pesticide use to meet a special local need (SLN) under FIFRA section 
24(c).
    FIFRA section 18 allows EPA to grant emergency exemptions to 
states, U.S. Territories, and Federal agencies to allow an unregistered 
pesticide for a limited time if EPA determines that emergency 
conditions exists. FIFRA section 18 requests include unregistered 
pesticide use exemptions for specific agricultural, public health and 
quarantine purposes. FIFRA section 24(c) allows EPA to grant permission 
to a particular state to register additional uses of a federally 
registered pesticide for distribution and use within that state to meet 
a SLN.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Pesticides registrants, which may be 
identified by North American Classification System (NAICS) codes 325320 
(pesticide and other agricultural chemical manufacturing), and 9241 
(governments that administer environmental quality programs).
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (FIFRA Sections 3 & 
11).
    Estimated total number of potential respondents: 283.
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Estimated total burden: 25,753 hours. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 
1320.3(b).
    Estimated total costs: $1,829,103, includes $0 annualized capital 
investment or maintenance and operational costs.
    Changes in the estimates: There is an overall estimated decrease of 
8,422 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that 
identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This change 
corresponds with a decrease in the estimated average annual number of 
submissions that the Agency has projected it might receive in the 
future, i.e., the projection for the estimated number of annual FIFRA 
section 18 submissions decreased from 185 to 143 (burden decrease of 
4,158 hours), and the projection for the estimated number of annual 
FIFRA section 24(c) submissions decreased from about 305 to 223 (burden 
decrease of 4,264 hours). This change is an adjustment.
