    Abstract: Under Section 206(a) of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 
7521), on-highway engine and vehicle manufacturers may not legally 
introduce their products into US commerce unless EPA has certified that 
their production complies with applicable emission standards. Per 
section 207(a), original vehicle manufacturers must warrant that 
vehicles are free from defects in materials and workmanship that would 
cause the vehicle not to comply with emission regulations during its 
useful life. Section 207(a) directs EPA to provide certification to 
those manufacturers or builders of automotive aftermarket parts that 
demonstrate that the installation and use of their products will not 
cause failure of the engine or vehicle to comply with emission 
standards. An aftermarket part is any part offered for sale for 
installation in or on a motor vehicle after such vehicle has left the 
vehicle manufacturer's production line (40 CFR 85.2113(b)). 
Participation in the aftermarket certification program is voluntary. 
Aftermarket part manufacturers or builders (manufacturers) electing to 
participate conduct emission and durability testing as described in 40 
CFR part 85, subpart V, and submit data about their products and 
testing procedures. Any information submitted to the Agency for which a 
claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to policies 
set forth in CFR title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B--
Confidentiality of Business Information (see 40 CFR part 2).
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Manufacturers or builders of 
automotive aftermarket parts. Respondent's obligation to respond: 
Voluntary.
    Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total).
    Frequency of response: On occasion.
    Total estimated burden: 547 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $19,063 (per year), which includes $1,955 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.

Director, Collection Strategies Division.
