manufacturers of listed chemicals must file annual reports of 
manufacturing, inventory, and use data for the listed chemicals they

time estimated for an average respondent to respond: Each respondent 
for this information collection completes one response per year. The

with the proposed collection: The DEA estimates this collection takes a
