Abstract: This ICR renewal is being submitted for the Air Emission Standards for Tanks, Surface Impoundments and Containers (40 CFR Part 264, Subpart CC and 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart CC), which were promulgated on December 6, 1994. The requirements of this subpart apply to owners and operators of all facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes in tanks, surface impoundments and containers that are subject to subparts I, J or K of these parts, except for Sections 264.1 and 265.1 and those management units identified at Sections 264.1080(b) and 265.1080(b). Also, the requirements of this subpart apply to large quantity generators that manage hazardous wastes in either tanks, or containers (262.34(a)(1)(i and ii)). The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that treat, store, or dispose of RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC)

Estimated number of respondents: 6,209 (total).

Frequency of response: Occasionally, annually, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 712,293 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $82,092,685 (per year), includes $12,418,000 for operation & maintenance costs annualized capital and no annualized capital/start-up costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent burden hours and costs from the most recently approved ICR. The previous ICR used rounded numbers, while this ICR uses exact values in calculating burden hours. In addition, this ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs.

There is also an increase of one response in this ICR due to a correction. The previous ICR did not account for the annual project report for the Sisterville Plant when calculating the total number of responses.
