The draft scope of the risk evaluation for each of these 13 chemical substances includes the conditions of use, hazards, exposures, and the potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulations the EPA plans to consider. Development of the scope is the first step of a risk evaluation. The draft scope of each risk evaluation will include the following components (40 CFR 702.41(c)): • The conditions of use, as determined by the Administrator, that the EPA plans to consider in the risk evaluation. • The potentially exposed populations that EPA plans to evaluate; the ecological receptors that EPA plans to evaluate; and the hazards to health and the environment that EPA plans to evaluate. • A description of the reasonably available information and the science approaches that the Agency plans to use. • A conceptual model that will describe the actual or predicted relationships between the chemical substance, the conditions of use within the scope of the evaluation and the receptors, either human or environmental, with consideration of the life cycle of the chemical substance—from manufacturing, processing, distribution in commerce, storage, use, to release or disposal—and identification of human and ecological health hazards EPA plans to evaluate for the exposure scenarios EPA plans to evaluate. • An analysis plan, which will identify the approaches and methods EPA plans to use to assess exposure, hazards, and risk, including associated uncertainty and variability, as well as a strategy for using reasonably available information and science approaches. • A plan for peer review. With the publication of the draft scopes, EPA is providing a 45-calendar day public comment period. Note that, as a result of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision in Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families v. U.S. EPA, 943 F.3d VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:28 Apr 08, 2020 Jkt 250001 397, 425 (9th Cir. 2019), EPA will no longer exclude legacy uses or associated disposal from the definition of ‘‘conditions of use.’’ Rather, when these activities are intended, known, or reasonably foreseen, these activities will be considered uses and disposal, respectively, within the definition of ‘‘conditions of use.’’ EPA encourages commenters to provide information they believe might be missing or may further inform the risk evaluation. EPA will publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the final scopes within six months of the initiation of risk evaluations that occurred on December 20, 2019 (See Unit IV.).

The provisions of Title II of OWBPA require employers to provide certain information to employees (but not to EEOC) in writing. The regulation at 29 CFR 1625.22 reiterates those requirements. The disclosure of information required by the OWBPA and EEOC’s regulation falls within the PRA and the EEOC must receive OMB’s approval pursuant to the PRA to enforce the disclosure requirements. Prior to this emergency approval, the EEOC last received approval from OMB for this collection on February 28, 2017, which expired on February 29, 2020. The EEOC then sought emergency approval for the collection on March 30, 2020, which OMB approved the next day. Overview of this Information Collection Collection Title: Waivers of Rights and Claims Under the ADEA; Informational Requirements. OMB Number: 3046–0042. Type of Respondent: Business, State or local governments, not for profit institutions. Description of Affected Public: Any employer with 20 or more employees that seeks waiver agreements in connection with an exit incentive or other employment termination program. Number of Respondents: 127. Burden Hours: 2090.42. Number of Forms: None. Abstract: The EEOC enforces the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) which prohibits discrimination against employees and applicants for employment who are age 40 or older. The Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA), enacted in 1990, amended the ADEA to require employers to disclose certain information to employees (but not to the EEOC) in writing when they ask employees to waive their rights under the ADEA in connection with an exit incentive program or other employment termination program. The regulation at 29 CFR 1625.22 reiterates those disclosure requirements. Burden Statement: Based on EEOC’s review of 2015 EEO–1 data, approximately 303 firms reported a reduction in force during the one-year reporting period in the comment field of the EEO–1 form. An estimated 127 or 42% of firms who reported a reduction in force requested waivers of ADEA rights from the employees affected by the reduction in force. Based on data collected from participating employers, EEOC learned that the senior human resource managers and legal counsel bear the most significant brunt of the paperwork and human capital burden in drafting and distributing the waivers to employees. The burden hours for the creation of the ADEA waiver are estimated to be 8.25 per employer. Burden hours for the distribution of the ADEA waiver are estimated to be 8.21 per employer, for a total of 16.46 hours per employer. These figures were applied to 127 firms estimated to request waivers. The total hour burden for these 127 employers would therefore be 2,090.42 hours. For the Commission. Janet L. Dhillon, Chair.

subsection (f), 29 U.S.C. 626(f). The provisions of Title II of OWBPA 
require employers to provide certain information to employees (but not

Overview of this Information Collection

    Collection Title: Waivers of Rights and Claims Under the ADEA; 
Informational Requirements.
    OMB Number: 3046-0042.
    Type of Respondent: Business, State or local governments, not for 
profit institutions.
    Description of Affected Public: Any employer with 20 or more 
employees that seeks waiver agreements in connection with an exit 
incentive or other employment termination program.
    Number of Respondents: 127.
    Burden Hours: 2090.42.
    Number of Forms: None.
    Abstract: The EEOC enforces the Age Discrimination in Employment 
Act (ADEA) which prohibits discrimination against employees and 
applicants for employment who are age 40 or older. The Older Workers 
Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA), enacted in 1990, amended the ADEA to 
require employers to disclose certain information to employees (but not 
to the EEOC) in writing when they ask employees to waive their rights 
under the ADEA in connection with an exit incentive program or other 
employment termination program. The regulation at 29 CFR 1625.22 
reiterates those disclosure requirements.
    Burden Statement: Based on EEOC's review of 2015 EEO-1 data, 
approximately 303 firms reported a reduction in force during the one-
year reporting period in the comment field of the EEO-1 form. An 
estimated 127 or 42% of firms who reported a reduction in force 
requested waivers of ADEA rights from the employees affected by the 
reduction in force.
    Based on data collected from participating employers, EEOC learned 
that the senior human resource managers and legal counsel bear the most 
significant brunt of the paperwork and human capital burden in drafting 
and distributing the waivers to employees. The burden hours for the 
creation of the ADEA waiver are estimated to be 8.25 per employer. 
Burden hours for the distribution of the ADEA waiver are estimated to 
be 8.21 per employer, for a total of 16.46 hours per employer. These 
figures were applied to 127 firms estimated to request waivers. The 
total hour burden for these 127 employers would therefore be 2,090.42 
hours.

    For the Commission.
