Title: Emission Guidelines for Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste Incineration Units (Renewal).

ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1927.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0451.

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 Emission Guidelines at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, and any changes, or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit an initial notification report, 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: Commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 90.

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

Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 18,061. “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Estimated Total Annual Cost: $2,892,789, which includes $1,748,799 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $1,143,990 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is a change in the total estimated respondent and Agency burden and cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens due to several reasons: (1) The previous ICR included contractor labor costs associated with annual stack testing and continuous parameter monitoring as a respondent burden. Since the contractor labor costs apply solely to O&M activities, we have revised the ICR to reflect these as O&M costs, resulting in an apparent decrease in the total Start Printed Page 38315respondent labor burden; (2) this ICR revises the number of respondents based on more recent information obtained from a 2011 Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) conducted by EPA. The previous ICR estimated 97 existing sources were subject to the standard; however, the RIA indicates there are approximately 90 existing sources. This ICR reflects the most recent information obtained from the 2011 RIA, and contributes to the apparent decrease in the respondent and Agency labor burdens; and (3) there is a slight increase in Agency burden costs from the most-recently approved ICR due to the use of updated labor rates, because this ICR references labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate respondent burden costs and references labor rates from OPM to calculate Agency burden costs.
