Title: NESHAP for Magnetic Tape Manufacturing Operations (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart EE).
ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1678.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0326.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on May 31, 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 appropriate 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: Owners or operators of magnetic tape manufacturing operations 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; and the results of the initial performance test. Owners, or operators also are required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility. Each owner, or operator of an affected magnetic tape coating operation shall install, calibrate, maintain, and operate a monitoring device that continuously measures control device efficiency. Recordkeeping requirements include records of the freeboard ratio, compliance monitoring system (CMS) maintenance and calibration, performance tests, material balance calculation, and hazardous air pollutant (HAP) usage.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 200 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 Start Printed Page 17896of 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: Owners or operators of magnetic tape manufacturing operations.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 6.
Frequency of Response: Initially, on occasion, semiannually, quarterly.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,395.
Estimated Total Annual Cost: $264,722, which includes $11,000 annualized capital cost, $36,000 O&M costs, and $217,722 labor costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours, or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed during the past three years and are not anticipated to change in the next three years. Second, the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative, or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Because there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR, and there is no change in burden to industry.Start Signature
