    Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) adopted 
requirements for marine vessels operating in and around U.S. 
territorial waters to use reduced-sulfur diesel fuel. This requirement 
does not apply for steamships, but it would apply for steamships that 
are converted to run on diesel engines. A regulatory provision allows 
vessel owners to qualify for a waiver from the fuel-use requirements 
for a defined period for such converted vessels. EPA uses the data to 
oversee compliance with regulatory requirements, including 
communicating with affected companies and answering questions from the 
public or other industry participants regarding the waiver in question.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory.
    Estimated number of respondents: 6 (total).
    Frequency of response: Once.
    Total estimated burden: 14 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 
CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $988 (per year), includes no annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.
