Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 54750 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 211 / Wednesday, October 31, 2018 / Notices at 40 CFR Subpart B (Section 82.30 et seq.). The information required to be collected under the section 609 regulations is: Approved refrigerant handling equipment; approved independent standards testing organizations; technician training and certification; and certification, reporting and recordkeeping. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: The following is a list of NAICS codes for organizations potentially affected by the information requirements covered under this ICR. It is meant to include any establishment that may service or maintain motor vehicle air conditioners. 4411 Automobile Dealers 4413 Automotive Parts, Accessories, and Tire Stores 44711 Gasoline Stations with Convenience Stores 8111 Automotive Repair and Maintenance 811198 All Other Automotive Repair and Maintenance Other affected groups include independent standards testing organizations and organizations with technician certification programs. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 82.36, 82.38, 82.40, 82.42). Estimated number of respondents: 45,902 (per year). Frequency of response: On occasion, biennially, only once. Total estimated burden: 4,130 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $218,009 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in estimates: There is a decrease of 33 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due in part to a decrease in the number of new technician certifications and the time allotted for maintenance of the technician certification records. The time associated with the maintenance of these records has decreased, recognizing the move towards electronic recordkeeping which may be more efficient. Additionally, a decrease in the market for small containers of CFC–12 refrigerant has also decreased the burden. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: This information collection request pertains to trade secrecy claims submitted under Section 322 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA). EPCRA contains provisions requiring facilities to report to state and local authorities, and EPA, the presence of extremely hazardous substances (Section 302), inventory of hazardous chemicals (Sections 311 and 312) and manufacture, process and use of toxic chemicals (Section 313). Section 322 of EPCRA allows a facility to withhold the specific chemical identity from these EPCRA reports if the facility asserts a trade secret for that chemic claim for that chemical identity. The provisions in Section 322 establish the requirements and procedures that facilities must follow to request trade secret treatment of chemical identities, as well as the procedures for submitting public petitions to the Agency for review of the ‘‘sufficiency’’ of trade secret claims. Trade secret protection is provided for specific chemical identities contained in reports submitted under each of the following sections of EPCRA: (1) Section 303 (d)(2)—Facility notification of changes that have or are about to occur; (2) Section 303 (d)(3)—Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) requests for facility information to develop or implement emergency plans; (3) Section 311—Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) submitted by facilities, or lists of those chemicals submitted in place of the MSDSs; (4) Section 312—Emergency and hazardous chemical inventory forms (Tier I and Tier II); and (5) Section 313 Toxic chemical release inventory form. Form Numbers: EPA Form 9510–1. Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturer and non-manufacturer facilities subject to reporting under E:\FR\FM\31OCN1.SGM 31OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 211 / Wednesday, October 31, 2018 / Notices sections 303, 311/312 or 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA). Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory if a respondent decides to make a trace secret claim for the chemical identity for any of the chemicals in any of the reports the respondent is required to submit under EPCRA sections 303, 311/312 or 313. Estimated number of respondents: 272 trade secret claims. Frequency of response: Annual, with reports submitted under Sections 312 and 313. Total estimated burden: 2,584 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $151,047 (per year). There are no capital or operation and maintenance costs associated with this ICR. Changes in the estimates: This ICR renewal estimates a total respondent burden of 2,584 hours, which is reduced from the previous ICR. The previous approved burden was 3,154 hours. The burden decreased because the actual number of claims submitted is lower than what EPA estimated in the previous ICR. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Inorganic Arsenic Emissions from Glass Manufacturing Plants (40 CFR part 61, subpart N) apply to each existing and new glass melting furnace that uses commercial arsenic as a raw material located at a glass manufacturing plant. These standards PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54751 do not apply to pot furnaces; in addition, the standards do not consider re-bricking as construction or modification for the purposes of 40 CFR Section 61.05(a). New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 61, subpart N. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Glass manufacturing plants. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 61, subpart N). Estimated number of respondents: 16 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 3,100 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $382,000 (per year), which includes $56,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in labor hours or costs in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden.

identities contained in reports submitted under each of the following 
sections of EPCRA: (1) Section 303 (d)(2)--Facility notification of 
changes that have or are about to occur; (2) Section 303 (d)(3)--Local 
Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) requests for facility information 
to develop or implement emergency plans; (3) Section 311--Material 
Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) submitted by facilities, or lists of those 
chemicals submitted in place of the MSDSs; (4) Section 312--Emergency

sections 303, 311/312 or 313 of the Emergency Planning and Community 
Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA).
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory if a respondent 
decides to make a trace secret claim for the chemical identity for any 
of the chemicals in any of the reports the respondent is required to 
submit under EPCRA sections 303, 311/312 or 313.
    Estimated number of respondents: 272 trade secret claims.
    Frequency of response: Annual, with reports submitted under 
Sections 312 and 313.
    Total estimated burden: 2,584 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $151,047 (per year). There are no capital or

    Changes in the estimates: This ICR renewal estimates a total 
respondent burden of 2,584 hours, which is reduced from the previous 
ICR. The previous approved burden was 3,154 hours. The burden decreased 
because the actual number of claims submitted is lower than what EPA
