ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on April 30, 2019.

Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. Under the 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. Abstract: EPA promulgated the generic Preliminary Assessment Information Rule (PAIR) (40 CFR part 712) under section 8(a) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act amending TSCA was enacted on June 22, 2016; however, the authority for a TSCA section 8(a) PAIR rule was not modified. EPA uses PAIR, using the Manufacturer’s Report Preliminary Assessment Information Form, to collect information to help identify, assess, and manage human health and environmental risks from chemical substances, mixtures and categories. PAIR requires chemical manufacturers and importers to complete and submit standardized information about production, use, or exposure-related data to help evaluate the potential for human health and environmental risks caused by the manufacture or importation of identified chemical substances, mixtures or categories. EPA or other federal agencies can identify chemicals for a TSCA section 8(a) PAIR expediated rulemaking that have a justifiable need for production, use, or exposure-related data. This ICR also covers certain specific chemical testing and reporting requirements under Subpart B of 40 CFR part 766 that are very similar to the PAIR requirements. The Agency rarely receives submissions of the information required by 40 CFR 766. The dibenzopara-dioxin/dibenzofuran regulations at 40 CFR part 766 require that any person who manufactures, imports, or processes a chemical substance listed at 40 CFR 766.25 test that chemical substance and submit appropriate information to EPA. Persons who commence manufacture, import, or processing of a chemical substance listed at 40 CFR 766.25, must submit a letter of intent to test or an exemption application within 60-days of starting any of those activities. Each person who is manufacturing or processing a chemical listed in 40 CFR 766.25, must submit a protocol for testing. Persons who manufacture or import a chemical substance listed under 40 CFR 766.25 must report positive test results, using E:\FR\FM\29APN1.SGM 29APN1
