Title: NESHAP for Metal Coil Surface Coating Plants (Renewal).

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1957.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0487.

ICR Status: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Metal Coil Surface Coating Plants were proposed on July 18, 2000, promulgated on June 10, 2002, and amended on March 17, 2003. These standards apply to each facility operating a coil coating line and that is a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). This coil coating line is a process and the collection of equipment used to apply an organic coating to the surface of a metal coil that is less than 0.15 millimeters (0.006 inches) thick.

Abstract: Owners or operators must submit notification reports upon construction or reconstruction of any metal coil surface coating plant. Semiannual reports for periods of operation during which the emission limitation has exceeded, or reports certifying that no exceedances have occurred, also are required. Owners and operators must submit notification reports upon the construction, reconstruction, or modification of any metal coil surface coating plant. Also, required is a one-time-only initial notification for new and reconstructed sources. Owners or operators of metal coil surface coating plants subject to the rule must 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 EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart SSSS, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private.

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 Number for EPA's regulations listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information estimated to average 119 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose and 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. All existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Metal coil surface coating plants.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 89.

Frequency of Response: Initially, weekly, annually, semiannually, and occasionally.

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 19,901.

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,618,874, which includes $1,615,226 in labor costs, $0 in capital/startup costs, and $3,648 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. However, there is an increase in the total labor and Agency costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The change in cost estimates reflects updated labors rates available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Director, Collection Strategies Division.
