Request for Renewal of Approval of Collections of Information. Based on previous experience, CPSC staff estimates completion of approximately 97 pool inspections per year under the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. Investigators typically interview pool owners or operators or staff at the time of the inspection. In addition, investigators collect drain cover and sump certification documents as part of the pool inspection. Inspection of a pool or spa facility under the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act generally requires approximately three hours. The annual total testing burden hours for such inspections thus are estimated at 291 (97 inspections × 3 hours per inspection). We estimate that hourly compensation for the time required for testing is $61.06 (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employer Costs for Employee Compensation,” December 2012, Table 9, total compensation for management, professional, and related workers in goods-producing industries: Accordingly, we estimate the annual cost to be $17,768 ($61.06 × 291).
