Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).




The Environmental Protection Agency has submitted an information collection request (ICR), “NESHAP for Primary Lead Smelters (40 CFR part 63, subpart TTT) (Renewal)” (EPA ICR No. 1856.10, OMB Control No. 2060-0414) 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: The NESHAP is applicable to primary lead processing facilities that are engaged in the production of lead metal from lead sulfide ore concentrate. The final amendment establishes new emission limits, revises testing, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements. Sources subject to the NESHAP are required to comply with the stack testing, monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements of the standard.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of primary lead smelting facilities.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 1 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 6,265 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $782,379 (per year), includes $169,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an overall decrease in the respondent and Agency burden and cost from the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The currently approved burden is the cumulative burden and cost from EPA ICR Number 1856.06 (existing rule) and EPA ICR Number 1856.08 (2011 amendment). In this ICR renewal, we have combined the two ICRs to reflect current rule requirements and removed duplicate items. In addition, this ICR renewal reflects a decrease in the number of respondents from two to one since EPA ICR Number 1856.06. We have assumed that there are an estimated one respondent subject to NSPS Subpart TTT since rule is still in effect. These changes result in an apparent decrease in labor hours and costs.
