Abstract: The NESHAP for Plywood and Composite Products covers both new and existing plywood and composite wood products (PCWP) facilities. Plywood and composite products include, but are not limited to plywood, veneer, particleboard, oriented strand board, hardboard, fiberboard, medium density fiberboard, laminated strand lumber, laminated veneer lumber, wood I-joists, kiln-dried lumber and glue-laminated beams.
Owners/operators of plywood and composite products facilities are required to submit an initial notification report, performance tests, and compliance status reports. Also, respondents are 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. Semiannual reports are required.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Plywood and composite product manufacturing facilities.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart DDDD).
Estimated number of respondents: 228 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 11,687 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $1,159,112 (per year), includes $15,960 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent burden from the most-recently approved ICR. This is not due to any program changes. The adjustment increase is the result of a labor rate increase and a rounding correction. The previous ICR rounded the number of hours required to record continuous parameter information. This ICR uses a more- accurate estimate in calculating this burden.
