    Abstract: Under the authority of sections 3004, 3005, 3008 and 3010 
of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, the 
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing revisions to 
the RCRA hazardous waste permitting program to allow a ``standardized 
permit.'' The standardized permit is available to facilities that 
generate hazardous waste and routinely manage the waste on-site in non-
thermal units such as tanks, containers, and containment buildings. 
This ICR presents a comprehensive description of the information 
collection requirements for owners and operators submitting 
applications for a standardized permit or a standardized permit

disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This 
includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, 
install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of 
collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and 
maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; 
adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable 
instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train 
personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search 
data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and 
transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Private businesses that generate 
hazardous waste.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 866.

burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR
