    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 emissions. 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 non-road categories of vehicles and engines, such 
as several categories of marine engines, locomotives, non-road 
recreational vehicles, and many non-road 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. Under section 208 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7542(c)) 

[[Page 72804]]

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 motor 
vehicles and engines.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a 
benefit (40 CFR part 1027).
    Estimated number of respondents: 597 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annually, On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 927 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $59,683 (per year), includes $9,965 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 586 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease is due to an increase in the number of 
online fee forms from manufacturers.

Director, Regulatory Support Division.
