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 Start Printed Page 41062Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEEE.
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, at a minimum, are required semiannually.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of iron and steel foundries.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEEE).
Estimated number of respondents: 98 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 29,747 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $3,309,697 (per year), includes $400,060 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in 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 adjustment increase in the respondent labor costs due to an increase in labor rates. Additionally, there is an adjustment decrease in the Agency labor costs due to a correction of mathematical error. The previous ICR incorrectly calculated total Agency labor cost for each burden item.
