    Title: Notice of Supplemental Distribution of a Registered 
Pesticide Product.
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 0278.10, OMB Control No. 2070-0044.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2010. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor 
the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 
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 title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable.
    Abstract: This information collection activity provides the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with notification of supplemental 
registration of distributors of pesticide products. EPA is responsible 
for the regulation of pesticides as mandated by the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), as amended. Section 
3(e) of FIFRA (see 7 U.S.C. 136a(e)), allows pesticide registrants to 
distribute or sell a registered pesticide product under a different 
name instead of or in addition to his own. Such distribution and sale 
is termed ``supplemental distribution'' and the product is termed a 
``distributor product.'' EPA requires the pesticide registrant to 
submit a supplemental statement (EPA Form 8570-5, Notice of 
Supplemental Distribution of a Registered Pesticide Product) when the 
registrant has entered into an agreement with a second company that 
will distribute the registrant's product under the second company's 
name and product name. Responses to this collection of information are 
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average about 
15 minutes per response. 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 which have subsequently changed; 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: Individuals or firms engaged in 
activities related to the registration and supplemental distribution of 
a pesticide product.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,895.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 455.

[[Page 63751]]

    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $36,952, includes $0 annualized 
capital or O&M costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 140 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is an adjustment due to the 
decrease in the number of applications the Agency expects to receive in 
the next 3 years. EPA expects to receive a projected 584 fewer annual 
responses, based on a year-over-year decrease in the number of 
responses received in the 2006-2008 fiscal years. The Agency estimates 
that it will receive an average of 1,895 supplemental registrations 
annually for the next three years.
