Title: NSPS for Automobile and Light Duty Truck Surface Coating Operations, (40 CFR part 60, subpart MM).

Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for automobile and light duty truck surface coating operations were proposed on October 5, 1979 and promulgated on December 24, 1980 (45 FR 85415). These standards apply to the following automobile and light duty truck assembly plant lines: each prime coat operation, guide coat operation, and top coat operation commencing construction, modification or reconstruction after October 5, 1979. Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are the pollutants regulated under the standards.

Owners or operators of the affected facilities described must make the following one time-only reports: Notification of the date of construction or reconstruction; notification of the anticipated and actual dates of startup; notification of any physical or operational change to an existing facility which may increase the regulated pollutant emission rate; notification of the date of the initial performance test (not required under section 60.393(a)); and the results of the initial performance test. Responses to the collection of information are mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart MM, Automobile and Light Duty Truck Surface Coating Operations). The required information has been determined not to be confidential. However, any information submitted to the Agency for which a claim of confidentiality is made will be safeguarded according to the Agency policies set forth in Title 40, chapter 1, part 2, subpart B—Confidentiality of Business Information.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. The OMB Control Numbers for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 745 (rounded) hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 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; 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: Automobile and light duty truck surface coating plants.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 54.

Frequency of Response: Initial, Quarterly.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 156,362 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $92,700, which includes $1,700 annualized capital/startup costs and $91,000 annual O&M costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 10,763 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This increase is due to more accurate estimates of existing and anticipated new sources and the correction of a mathematical error in the previous ICR.
