Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).




The Environmental Protection Agency has submitted an information collection request (ICR), “NSPS for Polymeric Coating of Supporting Substrates Facilities (Renewal)” (EPA ICR No. 1284.10, OMB Control No. 2060-0181) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Abstract: Respondents are owners or operators of facilities performing polymeric coating of supporting substrates. NSPS Subpart VVV applies to each coating operation and any on-site mix preparation equipment used to prepare coating for the polymeric coating of supporting substrates, which commences construction, modification, or reconstruction after April 30, 1987. The rule establishes standards for VOC use, emission reduction limits, and capture and recovery of VOC emissions. The recordkeeping, monitoring, and reporting requirements allow the regulatory agencies to determine compliance with the standard.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of facilities performing polymeric coating of supporting substrates.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 59 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 13,667 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $1,995,496 (per year), includes $657,500 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden, capital/startup, and O&M costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is due to industry growth and is not due to any program changes.

There is an apparent decrease in the Agency labor burden hours due to a summation error in the most recently approved ICR. This error resulted in the overestimation of Agency burden. EPA has identified and reconciled this discrepancy during the preparation of this ICR renewal, hence the apparent burden decrease.
