Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart CCCC. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit an 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, at a minimum, are required semiannually.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart CCCC).

Estimated number of respondents: 30 (total).

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

Total estimated burden: 5,965 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $959,788 (per year), includes $382,200 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the Agency costs from the most recently approved ICR due to an increase in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates in calculating all burden costs.

Additionally, when compared to the previous ICR, there is a decrease in respondent burden and an increase in the total O&M costs. The previous ICR included contractor labor costs associated with initial emissions testing and annual stack testing under Table 1, Annual Respondent Burden and Cost. Since the contractor labor costs apply solely to capital/startup and O&M activities, we have revised the ICR to reflect contractor labor costs under their respective capital/startup and O&M activities, and also have updated the associated contractor labor burden rate.

There is also a decrease in capital/startup costs in this ICR as new sources will become subject to the 2013 standards and will not have burden Start Printed Page 37809associated with capital/startup under this NSPS.
