    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory.
    Estimated number of respondents: 1,380 (total).

    Total estimated burden: 38,573 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: The total number of responses for this ICR 
increased by 60 compared to the previously approved ICR in the renewal. 
The responses increased from 37,605 to 37,665 responses. Also, the 
burden increased by 75 from 38,498 in the previously approved ICR to 
38,573 in this renewal. These increases are due to the inclusion of the 
Geographic Phase-in Areas (GPA) refineries that were left out of the 
previous ICR renewal. The cost of this ICR compared with the currently 
approved OMB collection increased by $584,298 due to better numbers 
used to calculate burden.
