PUBLIC BURDEN

The purpose and need of this renewed collection request is to facilitate compliance with and enforcement of Section 608 of the Act by reducing emissions of class I and class II ozone-depleting refrigerants to the lowest achievable level during the service, maintenance, repair, and disposal of appliances. EPA has used and will continue to use these records and reports to ensure that refrigerant releases are minimized during the recovery and recycling of ozone-depleting refrigerants during the service, maintenance, repair, and disposal of appliances. Collection of this information is mandated by EPA regulations, in accordance with 40 CFR 82.162. This information is not shared with parties outside of the Federal government. EPA's confidentiality regulations (40 CFR 2.201 et seq.) assure computer data security, disclosure prevention, proper handling, proper storage, and proper disposal of the submitted information.

The public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average one (1) hour per response per respondent annually. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. 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.

To comment on the Agency's need for this information, the accuracy of the provided burden estimates, and any suggested methods for minimizing respondent burden, including the use of automated collection techniques, EPA has established a public docket for this ICR under Docket ID No. OAR-2003- 0018, which is available for public viewing at the Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center in the EPA Docket Center (EPA/DC), EPA West, Room B102, 1301 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC.
