    Title: Information Collection Request (ICR) for On-Highway 
Motorcycle Certification and Compliance Program.
    Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7521 et seq.) 
manufacturers and importers of on-highway motorcycles must have a 
certificate of conformity issued by EPA covering any vehicle they 
intend to offer for sale in the United States. A certificate of 
conformity represents that the respective vehicle conforms to all 
applicable emissions requirements. In issuing a certificate of 
conformity, EPA reviews vehicle information and emissions test data to 
determine if the required testing has been performed and the required 
emissions levels have been demonstrated. After a certificate of 
conformity has been issued, the Agency may request additional 
information to verify that the product continues to meet its certified 
emissions standards throughout its useful life. 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. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in 40 CFR 
are listed in 40 CFR part 9. The EPA would like to solicit comments 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.
    The current ICR for on-highway motorcycle emissions certification 
and compliance information is set to expire on September 30, 2016. This 
program was previously included under the current ICR for light-duty 
vehicle emissions certification and in-use testing [EPA ICR No. 
0783.62, OMB Control No. 2060-0104].
    Burden Statement: EPA estimates that 74 respondents will submit 
information each year spending a total of 542,118 hours and incurring 
an annualized cost of 10.9 million dollars. The average burden per 
respondent varies greatly; it is a function of the diversity of the 
products produced or imported. (A large, diversified motor vehicle 
manufacturer will have a much greater burden than a small importer of a 
few identical vehicles.) 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.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are on-highway motorcycles manufacturers and importers.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 74.
    Frequency of Response: Quarterly and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,594.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $386,088, which includes $151,150 
annualized operation and maintenance costs, $113,834 annualized 
capital/startup costs, and $168,614 annual labor costs. These estimates 
reflect an update to the previous cost estimates for on-highway 
motorcycles previously culled and compiled for the current ICR for 
light-duty vehicle emissions certification and in-use testing.

     Dated: February 8, 2016.

Director, Compliance Division, Office of Transportation and Air 
Quality, Office of Air and Radiation.
