Title: NESHAP for Beryllium Rocket Motor Firing (40 CFR part 61, subpart D) (Renewal).

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP, 40 CFR part 61, subpart D) was promulgated on April 6, 1973, and amended on November 7, 1985, for this source category. These standards establish limits for beryllium. The rule requires subject test sites to test ambient air for beryllium during and after firing a rocket motor. Samples are analyzed within 30 days and results are reported to EPA by registered letter by the business day following the determination and calculation. The rule also requires continuous stack sampling of beryllium combustion products during and after firing a rocket motor, and analysis and reporting within 30 days. In addition, other reporting requirements include notification of anticipated firing date; air quality emissions and ambient air quality and emission test reports. Recordkeeping requirements include air sampling test results, record of emission test results and making these records available to the Agency. Records are kept for a period of two years for the air sampling test results.

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 8 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 previous 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: These standards apply to sources that are rocket motor test sites that use beryllium propellant.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1.

Frequency of Response: On occasion.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: 8 hours.

Estimated Total Annual Costs: $0, which includes $0 annualized capital/startup costs, $0 annual O&M costs, and $0 annual labor costs.
