Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 61, subpart A, and any changes or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners and 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 when the monitoring system is inoperative.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD).

Estimated number of respondents: 57 (total).

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

Total estimated burden: 7,378 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $8,694,601 (per year), includes $8,271,404 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because the standard has been in effect for more than three years and the requirements are different during initial compliance as compared to on-going compliance. The previous ICR reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing monitoring equipment, conducting performance tests and establishing recordkeeping systems. This ICR, by in large, reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of annual performance test results and semiannual reports of exceedances. The overall result is a decrease in burden hours and labor costs. However, there is an increase in the total O&M costs as this ICR reflects the burden associated with annual performance testing requirement of the Emission Guidelines.

In addition to the changes above, this ICR revises the number of respondents using the latest Agency estimates, and corrects the number of responses as the previous ICR incorrectly included internal records as a response. This attributes to a decrease in the number of respondents and number of responses.
