Abstract: Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), as well as for the specific standard (40 CFR part 63, subpart FFFFF). This includes submitting initial notification reports, performance tests, periodic reports and results, and maintaining 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 reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Integrated iron and steel plants.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 18 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 18,500 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $1,930,000 (per year), which includes $67,000 in either annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: The increase in respondent labor burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to an adjustment. In this ICR, we assume all existing respondents will take some time to re-familiarize with the regulatory requirement. This assumption results in a small increase in labor hours and costs. The respondent labor costs also increased due to use of more updated labor rates. The total estimated cost, including capital and O&M costs, have also been rounded to three significant figures. The rounding results in a small apparent decrease in the total O&M cost.
