Pursuant to section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, EPA is soliciting comments and information to enable it to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or Start Printed Page 33410other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.

(1) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0337; Title: NESHAP for Portland Cement (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart LLL); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1801.12, OMB Control Number 2060-0416; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013.

Abstract: The NESHAP for Portland Cement (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart LLL) were proposed June 16, 2008, promulgated September 9, 2010, and amended January 18, 2011. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators 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. Reports are required semiannually at a minimum.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of any existing or new facility engaged in portland cement manufacturing.

Respondent's obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart LLL).

Estimated number of respondents: 87 (total).

Frequency of response: Semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 643 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).

Total estimated cost: $182,182 (per year), includes $120,155 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The increase in burden is primarily due to the additional recordkeeping and reporting costs attributable to the final amendments. Additionally, there is an increase in burden costs due to an adjustment in labor rates.

(2) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0338; Title: NESHAP for the Manufacture of Amino/Phenolic Resins (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart OOO); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1869.07, OMB Control Number 2060-0434; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013.

Abstract: The NESHAP for the Manufacture of Amino/Phenolic Resins were proposed on December 14, 1998, and promulgated on January 20, 2000. The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart KKKK. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-only report of any physical or operational changes, initial performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators 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. Reports are required semiannually at a minimum.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Amino/phenolic resins manufacturing facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart OOO).

Estimated number of respondents: 40 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly, semiannually, and annually.

Total estimated cost: $2,290,320 (per year), includes $16,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the respondent 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, are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the respondents is very low, negative or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours in the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR. However, there is an increase in burden costs due to an adjustment in labor rates.

(3) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0336; Title: NESHAP for Off-Site Waste and Recovery Operations (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart DD); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1717.08, OMB Control Number 2060-0313; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013.

Changes in Estimates: There is no change in the respondent 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 respondents is very low, negative or non-existent. Therefore, the labor hours in the previous ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in this ICR.

(8) Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OECA-2013-0340; Title: NESHAP for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart ZZZZ); ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1975.09, OMB Control Number 2060-0548; ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2013.

Abstract: The respondents to this information collection are owners or operators of existing spark ignition (SI) engines that have a site rating of less than or equal to 500 brake hp and located at major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP) and existing stationary SI engines located at area sources of HAP emissions. The information is requested by the Agency to determine compliance with the rule. The information will then be used by enforcement agencies to verify that sources subject to the standards are meeting the emission reductions mandated by the Clean Air Act (CAA). Other sizes/types of stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE) have been regulated under previous actions. Thus, this final action fulfills the requirements of section 112 of the CAA, which requires EPA to promulgate standards for stationary RICE, by adding requirements for the remaining engines.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of existing stationary SI RICE.

Respondent's obligation to respond: mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart ZZZZ).

Abstract: EPA is finalizing six national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for seven area source categories. The proposed requirements for two area source categories (Flexible Polyurethane Foam Production and Flexible Polyurethane Foam Fabrication) are combined in one subpart. The standards include emissions limitations and work practice requirements for new and existing plants based on the generally available control technology or management practices (GACT) for each area source category. Potential respondents include one existing acrylic and modacrylic production facility, two existing chromium product manufacturing facilities, 500 existing flexible polyurethane foam production and fabrication facilities, 60 existing lead acid battery manufacturing facilities, and 393 existing wood preserving facilities. The total annual responses attributable to this ICR for existing sources are two one-time notifications; some existing facilities may be required to prepare a startup, shutdown, and malfunction plan, perform additional monitoring and recordkeeping, and/or conduct an initial performance test. The owner or operator of a new area source would be required to comply with all requirements of the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A). No burden estimates are provided for new area sources because no new facilities are expected during the next 3 years.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Acrylic and Modacrylic Fibers Production, Carbon Black Production, Chemical Manufacturing: Chromium Compounds, Flexible Polyurethane Foam Production and Fabrication, Lead Acid Battery Manufacturing, and Wood Preserving
