    Abstract: Under Title II of the Clean Air Act (CAA) (42 U.S.C. 7521 
et seq.), EPA issues certificates of conformity for motor vehicle 
designs and engines that comply with applicable emission standards set 
under section 202(a)(1) of the CAA, such as those for CO2, 
N2O, and CH4 in the final regulation. Under 49 
U.S.C. 32902, NHTSA is mandated to require manufacturers comply with 
fuel economy and consumption standards. Manufacturers will submit 
applications to certify their products and respond to the information 
collection activities detailed in the HD National Program. They will 
also submit reports, conduct compliance testing, label certified 
vehicles, provide final year-end-reports and retain records of 
information.
    Manufacturer test results will be used by EPA to perform 
confirmatory testing on a sufficient number of engines and vehicles to 
confirm manufacturer-reported results. EPA's emission certification 
programs and NHTSA's fuel efficiency programs are statutorily mandated. 
EPA does not have discretion to cease these functions under Section 
206(a) of the CAA (42 U.S.C. 7521).
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers of Medium- and Heavy-
Duty Engines and Vehicles; owners of heavy-duty truck fleets.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (42 U.S.C. 7521) (40 
CFR 1036.730 and 1037.730).
    Estimated number of respondents: 34 (total).
    Frequency of response: Quarterly, Annually, On Occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 41,305 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b)
    Total estimated cost: $4,565,145 (per year), includes $1,458,333 
annualized capital and operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is no change of hours in the total 
estimated burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.
