Vehicle and Engine Compliance Program Fees (Renewal), EPA ICR 2080.07, 
OMB Control No. 2060-0545

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency is planning to submit an 
information collection request (ICR), ``Motor Vehicle and Engine 
Compliance Program Fees (Renewal)'' (EPA ICR No. 2080.07, OMB Control 
No. 2060-0545) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review 
and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.). Before doing so, EPA is soliciting public comments on 
specific aspects of the proposed information collection as described 
below. This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently 
approved through December 31, 2019. 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: Comments must be submitted on or before June 10, 2019.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, referencing Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2013-0119 referencing the Docket ID numbers provided for each item in 
the text, online using www.regulations.gov (our preferred method), or 
by mail to: EPA Docket Center, Environmental Protection Agency, Mail 
Code 28221T, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20460.
    EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included in the 
public docket without change including any personal information 
provided, unless the comment includes profanity, threats, information 
claimed to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other 
information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Sohacki, Compliance Division, 
Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Environmental Protection 
Agency, 2000 Traverwood Dr., Ann Arbor, MI 48105; telephone number:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail 
the information that the EPA will be collecting are available in the 
public docket for this ICR. The docket can be viewed online at 
www.regulations.gov or in person at the EPA Docket Center, WJC West, 
Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC. The telephone 
number for the Docket Center is 202-566-1744. For additional 
information about EPA's public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/dockets.
    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting 
comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of 
the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (iv) minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on those who are to respond, including 
through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or 
other technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. EPA 
will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. 
The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and 
approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice 
to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to 
submit additional comments to OMB.
    Abstract: As required by the Clean Air Act, EPA has regulations 
establishing emission standards and other requirements for various 
classes of vehicles, engines, and evaporative emission component. These 
regulations require that compliance be demonstrated prior to EPA 
granting a ``Certificate of Conformity''. EPA charges fees for 
administering this certification program. In 2004 the fees program was 
expanded to include nonroad categories of vehicles and engines, such as 
several categories of marine engines, locomotives, non-road 
recreational vehicles, and many nonroad compression-ignition and spark-
ignition engines. Manufacturers and importers of covered vehicles, 
engines and components are required to pay the applicable certification 
fees prior to their certification applications being reviewed by the 
Agency. Under section 208 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7542(c)) all 
information, other than trade secret processes or methods, must be 
publicly available. Information about fee payments is treated as 
confidential information prior to certification.
    Form Numbers: 3520-29.
    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers or importers of 
passenger cars, motorcycles, light trucks, heavy duty truck engines, 
nonroad vehicles or engines, and evaporative emissions components are 
required to receive a certificate of conformity from EPA prior to 
selling or introducing these products into commerce in the U.S.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a 
benefit (40 CFR part 1027).
    Estimated number of respondents: 611 (total).
    Frequency of response: An average of approximately eight responses 
per respondent per year.
    Total estimated burden: 1,019 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $67,445 (per year), includes $11,411 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of 92 hours in the total 
estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by 
OMB. This increase is based on the increase in the number applications 
for certification and the associated fees, updates and corrections that 
are filed by the manufacturer as part of the fee payment process.
