Abstract: This rule applies to marine tank vessel loading operations that are major sources of HAP, have an annual throughput of 10 million or more barrels of gasoline, and/or have an annual throughput of 200 million or more barrels of crude oil. This ICR also covers owners or operators of existing MTVLO, that emit less than 10 tons per year of each individual HAP, and less than 25 tons/year of all HAP combined, located at major sources of HAP that loads more than 1 million barrels/yr of gasoline, as Start Printed Page 45443well as owners or operators of existing off-shore terminals that load gasoline.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of marine tank vessel loading operations.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart Y).

Estimated number of respondents: 804 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially and annually.

Total estimated burden: 9,892 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $967,810 (per year), including annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total estimated respondent labor burden and cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The labor burden increase is the direct result of adding affirmative defense to this ICR renewal. There is an increase in the cost burden, however, it is due primarily to the use of updated labor rates. This ICR references labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate the respondent cost burden.
