This change will not increase the annual ICR burden estimate. It is not mandatory for stakeholders to take advantage of this electronic reporting option. This action will not change the scope or content of submissions, nor would it prescribe a format. The burden associated with CDX registration is covered by another approved ICR (OMB control no. 2025-0003 and ICR No. 2002.07). EPA estimates that this 73% of CSF submitters are already registered in CDX and already use the PSP for other purposes. In most cases, these entities are pesticide registrants. Those that choose to submit electronically may experience some savings related to postage and materials (paper, ink, etc.). Because the electronic reporting option is both time-limited and voluntary, these cost savings are likely to be de minimis. Although there will be additional burden in establishing the eCSF file, subsequent submissions will be faster because of the saved data.

The activities in this ICR increase net respondent burden by 37,624 hours annually over the levels approved in the currently approved collection. While burden per response levels remain unchanged, the number of responses expected in certain categories has shifted as a result of using an updated data set (Section 3 registration actions annually, on average, during the years 2015-2017) to predict future registration application levels. Additionally, in this iteration of the ICR, the Agency calculates the expected annual application burden of three proposed programs that are anticipated to come online in the next three years. The average annual number of Section 3 registration actions dropped during the years 2015-2017 from 7,478 to 7,292. As a result, baseline registration levels, exclusive of the new programs, were reset at an annual averages of 205 “Type A” activities, 7,082 “Type B” activities, and 5 “Type C” activities. EPA estimates that the addition of several new fee-for-service PRIA categories will increase the annual number of Type B actions by 40. The Agency does not anticipate any paperwork burden from data generation for new products or for new active ingredients resulting from these new PRIA categories. The Antimicrobial Performance Evaluation Program (APEP) may impact up to 99 products annually, with an application burden for the registrant of each product. The Agency expects this burden to be similar to a Type B action. Furthermore, there may be a data generation burden for these products annually under this program. EPA conservatively estimates the paperwork burden for data generation under APEP may look similar to the burden for an Antimicrobial new product and has included this burden in the calculations for the Data Generation IC in this ICR. The Agency anticipates that the “Interim Process for Evaluating Potential Synergistic Effects of Pesticides During the Registration Process” will not cause a change in the number of product registrations, but will impose an additional Type A burden on registrants equivalent to about 8 active ingredients annually. The Agency does not anticipate a paperwork burden from data generation for new active ingredients or new products for the draft GTA guidance.
