Proposed Information Collection Request; Comment Request; Motor 
Vehicle Emissions: Revisions to Certification of Alternative Fuels 
Conversions

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Environmental Protection Agency is planning to submit an 
information collection request (ICR), ``Motor Vehicle Emissions: 
Revisions to Certification of Alternative Fuels Conversions'' (EPA ICR 
No. 0783.64, OMB Control No. 2060-0104) to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Before doing so, EPA is 
soliciting public comments on specific aspects of the proposed 
information collection as described below. This is a proposed extension 
of the ICR, which is currently approved through May 31, 2014. An Agency 
may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number.

DATES: Comments must be submitted on or before February 18, 2014.

ADDRESSES: Submit your comments, referencing Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-
2009-0299 online using www.regulations.gov (our preferred method), or 
by mail to: EPA Docket Center, Environmental Protection Agency, Mail 
Code 28221T, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20460.
    EPA's policy is that all comments received will be included in the 
public docket without change including any personal information 
provided, unless the comment includes profanity, threats, information 
claimed to be Confidential Business Information (CBI) or other 
information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Holly Pugliese, Compliance Division, 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2000 Traverwood Drive, Ann Arbor, 
Michigan 48105. Telephone: (734) 214- 4288. Email Address: 
pugliese.holly@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail 
the information that the EPA will be collecting are available in the 
public docket for this ICR. The docket can be viewed online at 
www.regulations.gov or in person at the EPA Docket Center, WJC West, 
Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC. The telephone 
number for the Docket Center is 202-566-1744. For additional 
information about EPA's public docket, visit http://www.epa.gov/dockets.
    Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting 
comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the 
proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the 
information will have practical utility; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of 
the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (iv) minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on those who are to respond, including 
through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or 
other technological collection techniques or other forms of information 
technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. EPA 
will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. 
The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and 
approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice 
to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to 
submit additional comments to OMB.
    Abstract: With this ICR renewal, EPA is seeking permission to 
continue recordkeeping and reporting requirements for manufacturers to 
submit information to EPA to ensure compliance with the provisions of 
EPA's Clean Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Engine Conversions Final Rule 
which was issued on April 8, 2011 (76 FR 19830). This includes a 
variety of requirements for alternative fuel vehicle/engine converters 
who seek an exemption from the anti-tampering prohibition in section 
203(a)(3) of the Clean Air Act. Under Title II of the Clean Air Act (42 
U.S.C. 7521 et seq.)
    Form Numbers: EPA Form Number 5800-257 and EPA Form Number 5800-
258.
    Respondents/affected entities: This action will affect companies 
and persons that manufacture, assemble, sell, import, or install 
alternative fuel conversions for light-duty vehicles, light-duty 
trucks, medium-duty passenger vehicles.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Required to obtain or retain a 
benefit.
    Estimated number of respondents: 25 (total).
    Frequency of response: On occasion as needed to obtain 
certification.
    Total estimated burden: 39,193 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $2,689,777 (per year), includes $363,059 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in estimates: There is an increase of 20,657 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase is due primarily to the increase in the 
number of
