    Abstract: The regulations at 40 CFR 80 require gasoline be 
reformulated to reduce toxic and ozone-forming emissions. The 
regulations also contain reporting and recordkeeping requirements for 
the production, importation, transport and storage of gasoline, in 
order to demonstrate compliance and facilitate compliance and 
enforcement. For example, refiners must report on the benzene content 
of gasoline and other properties. Information claimed as confidential 
is handled in accordance with EPA Freedom of Information Act 
regulations at 40 CFR part 2. Electronic files received by the Agency 
are stored in a secure data base.
    Form Numbers: RFG0302, RFG0303, RFG0400, RFG0500, RFG0800, RFG0900, 
RFG1000, RFG1200, RFG1300, RFG1400, RFG1600, RFG1700, RFG1800, RFG1900, 
RFG2000, RFG2200, RFG2500, 3520-27, GSF0402, 5900-321. All information 
about registration and links to reporting forms and the URF standard 
reporting template are available at https://www.epa.gov/fuels-registration-reporting-and-compliance-help.
    Respondents/affected entities: Refiners, importers, terminals, 
pipelines, truckers and other distributors and retailers/wholesale 
purchase-consumers. Some refiners are importers but that is not always 
the case.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory per 40 CFR part 80.
    Estimated number of respondents: 4,281.
    Frequency of response: Quarterly, annually, or on occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 126,846 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $39,450,368 (per year), includes $24,713,032 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: The burden estimate for each of the listed 
categories has a slight reduction of 400 hours and one fewer report 
compared to the existing clearance; these are due to the expiration of 
the provision allowing for the submittal of a Foreign Refinery Baseline 
Petition. Thus, there is a decrease of the estimated burden hours from 
127,246 currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR 
Burdens to 126,846 hours and a decrease in the number of reports from 
54,078 to 54,076.
