Abstract: Owners and operators of carbon black production, ethylene production, cyanide chemicals manufacturing, and spandex production facilities are subject to 40 CFR part 63, subpart YY. They are required to provide initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. They 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 during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart YY.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of carbon black production, ethylene production, cyanide chemicals manufacturing, and spandex production facilities.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart YY).
Estimated number of respondents: 61 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and annually.
Total estimated burden: 41,753 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $4,549,698 (per year), includes $350,957 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 28,229 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. The respondent burden hours and costs increased because the previous Start Printed Page 15604ICR substantially underestimated the time and effort to collect, compile and maintain records and information required by the standard.
