Abstract: The respondents to the information collection are owners or operators of new, reconstructed, and existing aerospace manufacturing and rework facilities where the total hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emitted are greater than or equal to 10 tons per year of any one HAP; or where the total HAP emitted are greater than or equal to 25 tons per year of any combination of HAP. Operations covered include: Cleaning, primer and top coat application, depainting, chemical milling maskant application, and handling and storage of waste. This information will then be used by enforcement agencies to verify that sources subject to the standard are meeting the emission reductions mandated by the Clean Air Act.

Owners/operators of aerospace manufacturing and rework facilities are required to submit initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents 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. Semiannual reports are also Start Printed Page 53566required.
