Abstract: This ICR covers the burden associated with EPA Form 3520-21, a declaration form for importers of nonroad vehicles or engines into the United States, which identifies the regulated category of engine or vehicle and the regulatory provisions under which the importation is taking place. In addition, this ICR covers the possible burden of EPA Form 3520-8 if it comes to be used to request final importation clearance for Independent Commercial Importers of nonroad Compression Ignition engines, who would have to bring the engines into compliance and provide test results, comparable to the use of Form 3520-8 for on-road vehicles and engines as covered by OMB 2060-0095. The information is used by Agency enforcement personnel to verify that all nonroad vehicles and engines subject to Federal emission requirements have been declared upon entry or that the category of exclusion or exemption from emissions requirements has been identified in the declaration. The information is used to identify and prosecute violators and to monitor the program in achieving the objectives of the regulations. Forms are required before making customs entry; see 19 CFR 12.73 and 12.74.

Form Number: 3520-21.

Frequency of response: Once per entry (one form per shipment may be used).

Respondents/affected entities: Individual importers, or companies who import and manufacture nonroad engines and recreational vehicles.Start Printed Page 77003

Respondent's obligation to respond: Required for any importer to legally import nonroad vehicles or engines into the U.S.

Estimated number of respondents: 12,000.

Total estimated burden: 6,029 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

Total estimated cost: $410,178 (per year), which includes $38,002 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in Estimates: This is no change the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.
