Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection Renewal; Comment Request, 3806-3807 [2022-01313]

Download as PDF 3806 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 16 / Tuesday, January 25, 2022 / Notices containing the necessary information, as well as the burden associated with the EPA’s review of state applications. The information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the submission of any confidential information. (B) Uniform National Discharge Standards (UNDS) NDZs and Review of Discharge Determination or Standard: CWA section 312(n)(7) and the implementing regulations in 40 CFR part 1700 identify the information that a state must submit to the EPA in the state’s application to establish an NDZ for one or more discharges incidental to the normal operation of a vessel of the Armed Forces. A state may seek an NDZ designation for any incidental discharge subject to UNDS for which the EPA and Department of Defense (DoD) have promulgated national standards of performance and corresponding implementing regulations, respectively. In addition, CWA section 312(n)(5) provides that that the Governor of any state may petition the EPA and DoD to review any discharge determination or standard promulgated under CWA section 312(n) for vessels of the Armed Forces if there is significant new information that could reasonably result in a change to the discharge determination or standard. This ICR addresses the burden to a state respondent to develop applications for NDZs and requests for a review of a determination or standard and the burden to the EPA to review the applications. The information collection activities discussed in this ICR do not require the submission of any confidential information. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States. Respondent’s obligation to respond: The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of a sewage NDZ (CWA section 312(f)). The responses to this collection of information are required to obtain the benefit of an UNDS NDZ or a review of an UNDS discharge determination or standard (CWA section 312(n)). Estimated number of respondents: 17 (total). Frequency of response: One time. Total estimated burden: 914 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $50,869 (per year), includes $848 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: The EPA expects a decrease in hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. EPA expects a decrease in the overall costs as well, despite increases to state and federal labor costs. These decreases are attributable to fewer anticipated respondents compared with previous estimates. This adjustment is made to account for overestimates in the existing ICR and the EPA’s estimate of applications for NDZs and review of standards that may be submitted during the three-year ICR cycle.

General Description of Collection: The collection requires insured state nonmember banks to comply with the Bank Protection Act and to review bank security programs The Bank Protection Act of 1968 (12 U.S.C. 1881–1884) requires each Federal supervisory agency to promulgate rules establishing minimum standards for security devices and procedures to discourage financial crime and to assist in the identification of persons who commit such crimes. To avoid the necessity of constantly updating a technology-based regulation, the FDIC takes a flexible approach to implementing this statute. It requires each insured nonmember bank to designate a security officer who will administer a written security program. The security program must: (1) Establish procedures for opening and closing for business and for safekeeping valuables; (2) establish procedures that will assist in identifying persons committing crimes against the bank; (3) provide for initial and periodic training of employees in their responsibilities under the security program; and (4) provide for selecting, testing, operating and maintaining security devices as prescribed in the regulation. In addition, the FDIC requires the security officer to report at least annually to the bank’s board of directors on the effectiveness of the security program. There is no change in the method or substance of the collection. The 48,683 increase in burden hours is the result of the agency re-evaluating the time it takes for recordkeeping and reporting associated with the rule, and including new implementation burdens for new entities and entities reviewing their policies in light of mergers and other organizational changes. 2.
