The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, 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: The authority for EPA’s oil pollution prevention requirements is derived from section 311(j)(1)(C) of the Clean Water Act, as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. EPA’s regulation is codified at 40 CFR part 112. An SPCC Plan will help an owner or operator identify the necessary procedures, equipment, and resources to prevent an oil spill and to respond to an oil spill in a timely manner. If implemented effectively, the SPCC Plan is expected to prevent oil spills and reduce the impact and severity of oil spills. Although the owner or operator is the primary data user, EPA may also require the owner or operator to submit data to the Agency in certain situations to ensure facilities comply with the SPCC regulation and to help allocate response resources. State and local governments may use the data, which are not generally available elsewhere and can assist local emergency preparedness planning efforts. EPA does not require an owner or operator to submit their SPCC Plan but may request the SPCC Plan during a facility inspection or an oil spill incident for review. The SPCC regulation requires the owner or operator to maintain a complete copy of the Plan at the facility if the facility is normally attended at least four hours per day or at the nearest field office if the facility is not so attended. The rule also requires that the Plan be available to the Regional Administrator for on-site review during normal working hours (40 CFR 112.3(e)). SPCC Plan Preparation. Under section 112.3(a) or (b), the owner or operator of an onshore or offshore facility subject to this section must prepare in writing and implement an SPCC Plan in accordance with section 112.7 and any other applicable sections in the regulation. Section 112.7 requires that the Plan be prepared in accordance with good engineering practices. The section also requires that the Plan have the full approval of management at a level of authority to commit the necessary resources to fully implement the Plan. Specific provisions in this section, among others, require the owner or operator to predict the direction, rate of flow, and total quantity of oil which could be discharged from the facility as result of each type of major equipment failure (section112.7(b)); provide for appropriate containment and/or diversionary structures or equipment to PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47949 prevent a discharge (section112.7(c)); provide for Professional Engineer (PE) certification or a qualified facility certification (section112.7(d)); and conduct inspections and tests and maintain records (section112.7(e)). Plan Certification. Under section 112.3(d), a SPCC Plan must be reviewed and certified by a licensed PE for it to be effective to satisfy the requirements except as provided by 40 CFR 112.6, Qualified Facilities Plan Requirements. Under section 112.6, the owner or operator of a qualified facility may selfcertify the Plan if the facility meets the eligibility criteria in section 112.3(g). SPCC Plan Maintenance. Under section 112.5, the owner or operator must complete a review and evaluation of the SPCC Plan at least once every five years. As a result of this review and evaluation, the owner or operator must amend the Plan within six months of the review to include more effective prevention and control technology if the technology has been field-proven at the time of the review and will significantly reduce the likelihood of a discharge of oil. Recordkeeping. Under section 112.7(e), an owner or operator must conduct inspections and tests and maintain records. The inspections and tests must be conducted in accordance with written procedures the facility or the certifying engineer developed for the facility. The written procedures and a record of the inspections and tests must be signed by the appropriate supervisor or inspector and kept with the SPCC Plan for a period of three years. Records of inspections and tests may be kept under usual and customary business practices. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are the owners or operators of facilities that are required to have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan under the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation (40 CFR part 112). The applicability, definitions, and general requirements for all facilities and all types of oil are located in section 112.1 of the regulations and apply to any owner or operator of a nontransportation-related onshore or offshore facility engaged in drilling, producing, gathering, storing, processing, refining, transferring, distributing, using or consuming oil and oil products, which due to its location, could reasonably be expected to discharge oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines in quantities that may be harmful. (See 40 CFR 112.1(a) through (d) for further information E:\FR\FM\11SEN1.SGM 11SEN1 jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 47950 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 176 / Wednesday, September 11, 2019 / Notices about the applicability of the oil pollution prevention regulations.) Entities potentially affected by this action are in the following industries: Oil and gas extraction, farms, electric utilities, petroleum refining and related industries, chemical manufacturing, food manufacturing, manufacturing facilities using and storing animal fats and vegetable oils, metal manufacturing, real estate rental and leasing, retail and wholesale trade, transportation, petroleum bulk stations and terminals, fuel oil dealers, hospitals and other health care, accommodation and food services, gasoline stations, finance and insurance, mining, warehousing and storage, pipelines, and government and military installations, among others. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory, pursuant to 40 CFR 112.3(e). Estimated number of respondents: 541,000 (total). This figure will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Frequency of response: Facilities must prepare and implement an SPCC Plan before beginning operations and review, evaluate and update the SPCC Plan every five years. In the event of certain discharges of oil into navigable waters, a facility owner or operator must submit certain information to the Regional Administrator within 60 days. Total estimated burden: 6.2 million hours (per year). This figure will be updated as needed during the 60-day OMB review period. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $797 million (per year), includes $184 million annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. These figures will be updated with most recent available wage rates from BLS and to account for any changes in O&M costs, burden and number of respondents. Changes in Estimates: The above burden estimates are based on the current approved ICR, OMB Control No. 0328.17. In the final notice for the renewal ICR, EPA will publish revised burden estimates based on updates to respondent data and unit costs. Any change in burden will be described and explained in this section when the updated ICR Supporting Statement is completed during the 60-day OMB review period. In this notice, the Agency is requesting comments on the burden and costs estimated in the current ICR. The Agency is also requesting comments on the ICR’s characterizations, assumptions, data gaps, etc. that can help the Agency develop more refined and accurate burden estimates.

    Abstract: The authority for EPA's oil pollution prevention 
requirements is derived from section 311(j)(1)(C) of the Clean Water 
Act, as amended by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990. EPA's regulation is 
codified at 40 CFR part 112. An SPCC Plan will help an owner or 
operator identify the necessary procedures, equipment, and resources to 
prevent an oil spill and to respond to an oil spill in a timely manner. 
If implemented effectively, the SPCC Plan is expected to prevent oil 
spills and reduce the impact and severity of oil spills. Although the 
owner or operator is the primary data user, EPA may also require the 
owner or operator to submit data to the Agency in certain situations to 
ensure facilities comply with the SPCC regulation and to help allocate 
response resources. State and local governments may use the data, which 
are not generally available elsewhere and can assist local emergency 
preparedness planning efforts. EPA does not require an owner or 
operator to submit their SPCC Plan but may request the SPCC Plan during 
a facility inspection or an oil spill incident for review. The SPCC 
regulation requires the owner or operator to maintain a complete copy 
of the Plan at the facility if the facility is normally attended at 
least four hours per day or at the nearest field office if the facility 
is not so attended. The rule also requires that the Plan be available 
to the Regional Administrator for on-site review during normal working 
hours (40 CFR 112.3(e)).
    SPCC Plan Preparation. Under section 112.3(a) or (b), the owner or 
operator of an onshore or offshore facility subject to this section 
must prepare in writing and implement an SPCC Plan in accordance with 
section 112.7 and any other applicable sections in the regulation. 
Section 112.7 requires that the Plan be prepared in accordance with 
good engineering practices. The section also requires that the Plan 
have the full approval of management at a level of authority to commit 
the necessary resources to fully implement the Plan. Specific 
provisions in this section, among others, require the owner or operator 
to predict the direction, rate of flow, and total quantity of oil which 
could be discharged from the facility as result of each type of major 
equipment failure (section112.7(b)); provide for appropriate 
containment and/or diversionary structures or equipment to prevent a 
discharge (section112.7(c)); provide for Professional Engineer (PE) 
certification or a qualified facility certification (section112.7(d)); 
and conduct inspections and tests and maintain records 
(section112.7(e)).
    Plan Certification. Under section 112.3(d), a SPCC Plan must be 
reviewed and certified by a licensed PE for it to be effective to 
satisfy the requirements except as provided by 40 CFR 112.6, Qualified 
Facilities Plan Requirements. Under section 112.6, the owner or 
operator of a qualified facility may self-certify the Plan if the 
facility meets the eligibility criteria in section 112.3(g).
    SPCC Plan Maintenance. Under section 112.5, the owner or operator 
must complete a review and evaluation of the SPCC Plan at least once 
every five years. As a result of this review and evaluation, the owner 
or operator must amend the Plan within six months of the review to 
include more effective prevention and control technology if the 
technology has been field-proven at the time of the review and will 
significantly reduce the likelihood of a discharge of oil.
    Recordkeeping. Under section 112.7(e), an owner or operator must 
conduct inspections and tests and maintain records. The inspections and 
tests must be conducted in accordance with written procedures the 
facility or the certifying engineer developed for the facility. The 
written procedures and a record of the inspections and tests must be 
signed by the appropriate supervisor or inspector and kept with the 
SPCC Plan for a period of three years. Records of inspections and tests 
may be kept under usual and customary business practices.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are the owners or operators of facilities that are required 
to have a Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan 
under the Oil Pollution Prevention regulation (40 CFR part 112). The
