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 OOO. 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: 37 (total).

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

Total estimated burden: 22,370 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $2,202,893 (per year), includes $14,800 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an overall decrease in burden and cost for both the respondent and Agency. This is not due to any program changes. The burden decreased since the last ICR renewal due to a revision in the number of respondents. Based on recent industry data and Agency estimates, we have revised the number of affected sources from 40 to 37. This revision also resulted in a corresponding decrease in the total O&M costs.

In addition, this ICR corrects the Agency burden associated with the review of repeat performance tests. This ICR assumes that only 5 percent of respondents will conduct these tests.
