Abstract: Respondents are owners and operators of pesticides active ingredient production operations. Respondents must submit one-time reports of initial compliance and either semiannual reports or quarterly reports of compliance. Recordkeeping of parameters related to process and air pollution control technologies is required. The reports and records will be used to demonstrate compliance with the standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of pesticides active ingredient production operations.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 18 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 12,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $1,416,000 (per year), includes $236,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the number of responses because this ICR removes leak detection and repair (LDAR) reports. The regulation requires subject sources to include LDAR information in periodic (i.e. semiannual or quarterly) reports. LDAR is not separately reported to EPA; therefore, no additional responses are associated with this activity.
