Abstract: Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, Congress directed EPA to implement a comprehensive program for the safe management of hazardous waste. The core of the national waste management program is the regulation of hazardous waste from generation to transport to treatment and eventual disposal, or from “cradle to grave.” Section 3001(d) of RCRA requires EPA to develop standards for small quantity generators. Section 3002 of RCRA states, among other things, that EPA shall establish requirements for hazardous waste generators regarding recordkeeping practices. Section 3002 also requires EPA to establish standards on appropriate use of containers by generators. Finally, Section 3017 of RCRA specifies requirements for individuals exporting hazardous waste from the United States, including a notification of the intent to export, and an annual report summarizing the types, quantities, frequency, and ultimate destination of all exported hazardous waste.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Private business or other for-profit.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Parts 262 and 265).

Estimated number of respondents: 67,288.

Frequency of response: On occasion.

Total estimated burden: 253,519 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

Total estimated cost: $14,674,934 (per year), includes $40,041 annualized Start Printed Page 61641capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 22,323 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a decrease in the universe from 90,675 to 67,288.
