Title: NESHAP for Halogenated Solvent Cleaners/Halogenated Hazardous Air Pollutants (Renewal)

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1652.08, OMB Control Number 2060-0273

ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2013. Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB.

Abstract: 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 T.

Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial notification, 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.

Respondents/Affected Entities: Halogenated solvent cleaners.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,431.

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

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 45,242.

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $5,395,561, which includes $4,380,761 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,014,800 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an apparent increase in burden hours for the respondent and the Agency as compared to the previous ICR due to burden calculation revisions. The calculations presented in the previous ICR assumed that total respondent hours per year associated with each burden item included technical, managerial, and clerical labor. The previous ICR calculated technical, managerial, and clerical labor hours as being 85, 5, and 10 percent, respectively, of the total hours. To be consistent with the estimation methodology used in other ICRs, this ICR considers total respondent hours to include only technical labor, and that managerial and clerical hours account for an additional 5 and 10 percent, respectively, of those technical labor hours. Additionally, there is an adjustment increase in the respondent labor estimates associated with semiannual and quarterly reporting. The previous ICR estimated labor burdens for one semiannual report and three quarterly reports per year. We have revised the calculations to account Start Printed Page 36776for the burden associated with two semiannual and four quarterly reports per year.
