    Abstract: Producers of pesticides must maintain certain records 
with respect to their operations and make such records available for 
inspection and copying as specified in section 8 of the Federal 
Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and in regulations 
at 40 CFR part 169. This information collection is mandatory under 
FIFRA section 8. It is used by the Agency to determine compliance with 
the Act. The information is used by EPA Regional pesticide enforcement 
and compliance staffs, the Office of Enforcement and Compliance 
Assurance (OECA), and the Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) within the 
Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP), as well as 
the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Food and Drug 
Administration (FDA), and other Federal agencies, States under 
Cooperative Enforcement Agreements, and the public.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Producers of pesticides for sale or 
distribution in the United States.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 169)
    Estimated number of respondents: 14,447 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annual

[[Page 37311]]

    Total estimated burden: 28,894 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b)
    Total estimated cost: $3,500,508 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 5,694 hours in 
the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase is due to the growth in the number of 
respondents since the last ICR.
