Agency Information Collection Activities; Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request; Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements for 
Importation of Nonroad Engines and Recreational Vehicles

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 
U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this document announces that the Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) is planning to submit a request to renew an 
existing approved Information Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB). This ICR is scheduled to expire on 
December 31, 2014. Before submitting the ICR to OMB for review and 
approval, EPA is soliciting comments on specific aspects of the 
proposed information collection as described below.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before September 2, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments referencing Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2007-1138 online using www.regulations.gov (our preferred method), by 
email to pugliese.holly@epa.gov or by mail to: EPA Docket Center, 
Environmental Protection Agency, Mailcode 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: Holly Pugliese, Compliance Division, 
Office of Transportation and Air Quality, Environmental Protection 
Agency, 2000 Traverwood, Ann Arbor, Michigan, 48105; telephone number: 
734-214-4288; fax number: 734-214-4869; email address: 

    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: This ICR covers the burden associated with EPA Form 3520-
21, a declaration form for importers of nonroad vehicles or engines 
into the United States, which identifies the regulated category of 
engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the 
importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the possible 
burden of EPA Form 3520-8 if it comes to be used to request final 
importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers of nonroad 
Compression Ignition engines, who would have to bring the engines into 
compliance and provide test results, comparable to the use of Form 
3520-8 for on-road vehicles and engines as covered by OMB 2060-0095. 
The information is used by Agency enforcement personnel to verify that 
all nonroad vehicles and engines subject to Federal emission 
requirements have been declared upon entry or that the category of 
exclusion or exemption from emissions requirements has been identified 
in the declaration. The information is also used to identify and 
prosecute violators of the regulations and to monitor the program in 
achieving the objectives of the regulations. The Forms are required 
before making customs entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74.
    Form Number: 3520-21.
    Frequency of response: Once per entry. (One form per shipment may 
be used.)
    Respondents/affected entities: Information collected is from 
individual importers, or companies who import and manufacture nonroad 
engines and recreational vehicles.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Required for any importer to 
legally import nonroad vehicles or engines into the U.S.
    Estimated number of respondents: 12,000.
    Total estimated burden: 6029 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $410,178.38 (per year), includes $38,002 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: This is an increase in $110,896.39 the total 
estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by 
OMB. The program has remained consistent over time and the increase in 
burden is primarily due to costs of labor.

    Dated: June 19, 2014.

Director, Compliance Division, Office of Transportation and Air
