Title: NESHAP for Organic Liquids Distribution (Renewal).

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1963.03, OMB Control Number 2060-0539.

ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on April 30, 2007. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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 in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other Start Printed Page 15689appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEE were proposed on April 2, 2002 and promulgated on February 3, 2004. These regulations apply to the collection of activities and equipment, at new and existing facilities, used to distribute organic liquids into, out of, or within a major source plant site, that are not subject to another 40 CFR part 63 rule. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEE.

In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP.

Any owner/operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated State or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 114 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 which have subsequently changed; 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: New and existing facilities that distribute organic liquids and are located at, or are part of, major sources of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 381.

Frequency of Response: Initially, and semiannually on occasion.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 85,503.

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $15,800,891, which is comprised of $1,636,864 annualized Capital Startup Costs, $6,922,300 Operating and Maintenance Costs (O&M) and $7,241,727 annualized Labor Costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 51,667 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR is due to adjustment(s). The decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR is primarily due to the fact that this is the first ICR prepared after the compliance date. In the previous ICR, annual burden hours and costs associated with one-time activities were included for all existing sources as well as new sources. In this ICR, existing sources have been phased into compliance and are subject to on-going requirements, and only new sources are subject to various one-time activities.
