Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Private business or other for-profit. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 262 and 265). Estimated number of respondents: 644,345. Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 526,989 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $31,367,417 per year, which includes $63,345 in annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 273,470 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due primarily to changes in the universe size due to the 2016 Hazardous Waste Generators Improvements Rule. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: EPA published the NonHazardous Secondary Materials (NHSM) Rule on March 21, 2011. This rule finalized standards and procedures to be used to identify whether non-hazardous secondary materials are solid wastes when used as fuels or ingredients in combustion units. ‘‘Secondary material’’ is defined as any material that is not the primary product of a manufacturing or commercial process, and can include post-consumer material, offspecification commercial chemical products or manufacturing chemical intermediates, post-industrial material, and scrap (codified in § 241.2). ‘‘Nonhazardous secondary material’’ is a secondary material that, when discarded, would not be identified as a hazardous waste under 40 CFR part 261 (codified in § 241.2). This RCRA solid waste definition determines whether a combustion unit is required to meet the emissions standards for solid waste incineration units issued under section 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) or the emissions standards for commercial, industrial, and institutional boilers issued under section 112 of the CAA. In this rule, EPA also finalized a definition of traditional fuels. Amendments to this rule were published on February 7, 2013 (78 FR 9112), which added new materials to the list of categorical non-waste fuels. These amendments also provided clarification on certain issues on which EPA received new information, as well as specific targeted revisions. Further amendments to this rule were published on February 8, 2016 (81 FR 6688) and on February 7, 2018 (83 FR 5317), which added more materials to the list of categorical non-waste fuels.

Abstract: Under the authority of sections 3004, 3005, 3008 and 3010 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, EPA revised the RCRA hazardous waste permitting program to allow a ‘‘standardized permit.’’ The standardized permit is available to facilities that generate hazardous waste and routinely manage the waste on-site in non-thermal units such as tanks, containers, and containment buildings. In addition, the standardized permit is available to facilities that receive hazardous waste generated off-site by a generator under the same ownership as the receiving facility, and then store or non-thermally treat the hazardous waste in containers, tanks, or containment buildings. The RCRA standardized permit consists of two components: A uniform portion that is included in all cases, and a supplemental portion that the Director of a regulatory agency includes at his or her discretion. The uniform portion consists of terms and conditions, relevant to the unit(s) at the permitted facility, and is established on a national basis. The Director, at his or her discretion, may also issue a supplemental portion on a case-by-case basis. The supplemental portion imposes site-specific permit terms and conditions that the Director determines necessary to institute corrective action under section 264.101 (or state equivalent), or otherwise necessary to protect human health and the environment. Owners and operators have to comply with the terms and conditions in the supplemental portion, in addition to those in the uniform portion. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are business or other for-profit. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Voluntary (40 CFR 270.275). Estimated number of respondents: 86. Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 13,948 hours. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,242,205 (per year), includes $662,478 in annualized labor and $579,727 in annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: The burden hours are likely to stay substantially the same. E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail 
the information that the EPA will be collecting are available in the 
public docket for this ICR. The docket can be viewed online at

information about EPA's public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/dockets.
    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, the 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. The 
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, the 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: EPA published the Non-Hazardous Secondary Materials 
(NHSM) Rule on March 21, 2011. This rule finalized standards and 
procedures to be used to identify whether non-hazardous secondary 
materials are solid wastes when used as fuels or ingredients in 
combustion units. ``Secondary material'' is defined as any material 
that is not the primary product of a manufacturing or commercial 
process, and can include post-consumer material, off-specification 
commercial chemical products or manufacturing chemical intermediates, 
post-industrial material, and scrap (codified in Sec.  241.2). ``Non-
hazardous secondary material'' is a secondary material that, when 
discarded, would not be identified as a hazardous waste under 40 CFR 
part 261 (codified in Sec.  241.2). This RCRA solid waste definition 
determines whether a combustion unit is required to meet the emissions 
standards for solid waste incineration units issued under section 129 
of the Clean Air Act (CAA) or the emissions standards for commercial, 
industrial, and institutional boilers issued under section 112 of the 
CAA. In this rule, EPA also finalized a definition of traditional 
fuels.
    Amendments to this rule were published on February 7, 2013 (78 FR 
9112), which added new materials to the list of categorical non-waste 
fuels. These amendments also provided clarification on certain issues 
on which EPA received new information, as well as specific targeted 
revisions.
    Further amendments to this rule were published on February 8, 2016 
(81 FR 6688) and on February 7, 2018 (83 FR 5317), which added more 
materials to the list of categorical non-waste fuels. The ICRs 
associated with the February 2013, February 2016 and February 2018

    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are Business or other for-profit.

(Sections 1004 and 2002 of RCRA).
    Estimated number of respondents: 2,076.
    Frequency of response: One time.
    Total estimated burden: 3,236. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 
1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $108,068 (per year), which includes $106,716 
in annualized labor and $1,343 in annualized capital or operation & 
maintenance costs.
