Information Collection Request Submitted to OMB for Review and Approval; Comment Request; Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program (Renewal), 17876-17877 [2020-06602]

Download as PDF 17876 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 62 / Tuesday, March 31, 2020 / Notices Total estimated burden: 81,985 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $4,244,699 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: The increase in burden hours results from an increase in the estimated number of forms being filed. With the deployment of the ACE system, we are now able to have a much more accurate count of the number of forms that are being filed. There is a decrease in the burden costs because the only O&M costs associated with this ICR are incurred by ICIs during the required certification process, which is covered by 2060–0104. Therefore, with the renewal of this ICR, we are zeroing out the capital and O&M costs in this ICR. The burden totals have been updated accordingly.

Abstract: Information collected under this rulemaking is necessary to implement the requirements of the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program for evaluating and regulating substitutes for ozonedepleting substances (ODS) being phased out under the stratospheric ozone protection provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and globally under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Under CAA Section 612, EPA is authorized to identify and restrict the use of substitutes for class I and class II ODS (listed in 40 CFR part 82, subpart A, appendices A and B) where EPA determines other alternatives are available or potentially available that reduce overall risk to human health and the environment. Any producer of a DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 new substitute must submit a notice of intent to introduce a substitute into interstate commerce 90 days prior to such introduction. The producer must also provide EPA with information covering a wide range of health and environmental factors. The SNAP program, based on information collected from the manufacturers, formulators, and/or sellers of such substitutes, identifies acceptable substitutes. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory under Section 612 for anyone who sells or, in certain cases, uses substitutes for an ODS after April 18, 1994, the effective date of the final rule. Measures to protect confidentiality of information collected under the SNAP program are based on EPA’s confidentiality regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq., or Subpart B). Submitters may designate all or portions of their forms or petitions as confidential. EPA requires the submitters to substantiate their claim of confidentiality. Under CAA Section 114(c), emissions information may not be claimed as confidential. To develop the lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes, the Agency must assess and compare ‘‘overall risks to human health and the environment’’ posed by use of substitutes in the context of particular applications. EPA requires submission of information covering a wide range of health and environmental factors. These include intrinsic properties such as physical and chemical information, atmospheric effects including ozone depleting potential and global warming potential, toxicity, and flammability, and usespecific data such as substitute applications, process description, environmental release data, exposure data during use of a substitute, environmental fate and transport, and cost information of the substitute. Once a completed submission has been received, the SNAP program will commence its review. Any substitute which is a new chemical must also be submitted to the Agency under the Premanufacture Notice program under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Alternatives that will be used as sterilants must be filed jointly with EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs and with SNAP. Form Numbers: 1265–14. Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers, importers, formulators and processors of substitutes for ODS. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR 82.176). Estimated number of respondents: 180 (per year). Frequency of response: Annual. E:\FR\FM\31MRN1.SGM 31MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 62 / Tuesday, March 31, 2020 / Notices Total estimated burden: 5,557 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $471,714, which includes $22,938 annualized capital or O&M costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 814 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The Agency anticipates the number of submissions to the SNAP program to remain the same as the previous ICR during the next 3 years. Many of the recent SNAP submissions, and those anticipated over the next three years, are for chemicals previously found acceptable for other SNAP applications or for blends of alternatives already found acceptable. For the expected submissions, the burden of developing supporting information for the majority of these submissions is expected to decrease because it is easier to find and review information for substitutes that have been reviewed previously. EPA estimates a reduction in the number of respondents responsible for recordkeeping for substitutes acceptable subject to use conditions and narrowed use limits. The increased availability of alternatives reduces the need for industry to use alternatives previously listed as acceptable subject to narrowed use limits.

substitute must submit a notice of intent to introduce a substitute 
into interstate commerce 90 days prior to such introduction. The 
producer must also provide EPA with information covering a wide range 
of health and environmental factors. The SNAP program, based on 
information collected from the manufacturers, formulators, and/or 
sellers of such substitutes, identifies acceptable substitutes. 
Responses to the collection of information are mandatory under Section 
612 for anyone who sells or, in certain cases, uses substitutes for an 
ODS after April 18, 1994, the effective date of the final rule. 
Measures to protect confidentiality of information collected under the 
SNAP program are based on EPA's confidentiality regulations (40 CFR

    Estimated number of respondents: 180 (per year).
    Frequency of response: Annual.

    Total estimated burden: 5,557 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $471,714, which includes $22,938 annualized 
capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 814 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently

estimates a reduction in the number of respondents responsible for 
recordkeeping for substitutes acceptable subject to use conditions and 
narrowed use limits. The increased availability of alternatives reduces 
the need for industry to use alternatives previously listed as
