Title: NESHAP for Wood Furniture Manufacturing Operations (40 CFR part 63, subpart JJ).

Abstract: Respondents to this information collection request are the owners and operators of both new and existing wood furniture manufacturing operations that are sources of hazardous air pollutants. Major sources are required to perform recordkeeping activities and submit both initial and semiannual/quarterly compliance reports. Incidental wood furniture manufacturers and area sources must keep records to show that they are not major sources. The information is used to determine that all sources subject to the rule are complying with the standards. The information to be collected is mandatory under the rule.

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 45 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: Wood Furniture Manufacturers.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 750.

Frequency of Response: Semiannually, quarterly and initially.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 47,190 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Costs: $3,003,109, which includes zero annualized capital/startup costs, $18,000 annual O&M costs, and $2,985,109 respondents' labor costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 44,881 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is a result of a more accurate characterization of the sources affected by the standard.
