the ICR is given below, including its estimated burden and cost to the 
public. 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.

DATES: Additional comments may be submitted on or before April 27, 
2015.

    Abstract: EPA has an ongoing program to evaluate the emission 
performance of in-use light-duty (passenger car and light truck) motor 
vehicles through surveillance and compliance testing, as well as 
special investigations in compliance with the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 
7541).
    This ICR involves light-duty surveys and vehicle testing, which is 
strictly voluntary. A group of 25 to 50 potential participants is 
identified from state vehicle registration records. Three of the 
respondent pool are asked survey questions concerning vehicle 
condition, operation and maintenance. Additional groups of potential 
participants may be contacted until a sufficient number of vehicles 
have been obtained. Owners verify the survey information when they 
deliver their vehicles to EPA, release the vehicle to EPA, voluntarily 
provide maintenance records for copying, receive a cash incentive and, 
if requested, a loaner car, then receive the vehicle from EPA at the 
conclusion of the testing.
    Form Numbers: 5900-304, 5900-305, 5900-306, 5900-307, 5900-308, 
5900-309.
    Respondents/affected entities: Vehicle owners.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Voluntary.
    Estimated number of respondents: 160 (total).

[[Page 16007]]

    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 505 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $11,277, which includes $0 annualized capital 
or operational & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 16 hours in the total 
estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by 
OMB. This decrease is due to an adjustment of testing estimates based 
on the number and type of testing that has been conducted in this 
program over the past few years.

Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
