Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of aerospace manufacturing and rework operations. Respondents must submit one-time reports of initial performance tests and semiannual reports of noncompliance. Record keeping and parameters related to air pollution control technologies is required. The reports and records will be used to demonstrate compliance with the standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Aerospace manufacturing and rework facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart GG).

Estimated number of respondents: 136 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, semiannually, and occasionally.

Total estimated burden: 140,936 hours (per year). “Burden” is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $13,921,987 (per year), includes $136,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in respondent burden hours and an increase in Agency Start Printed Page 68055hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR; however, this is not due to any program changes. The changes are a result of several corrections; specifically, this ICR: (1) Corrects discrepancies in the number of compliance status reports and SSM reports between the respondent and the Agency burden tables; (2) corrects rounding errors in respondent burden Table 1b in the previous ICR; and (3) changes the frequency of reviewing semiannual reports from one to two for the Agency. This ICR also uses updated labor rates in calculating all costs, which results in an overall increase in burden costs.

Furthermore, this ICR corrects the number of responses to be consistent with the burden calculations. This results in an adjustment increase in the total number of responses.
