Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Environmental Protection Agency has submitted an information collection request (ICR), “NSPS for Surface Coating of Large Appliances (40 CFR part 60, subpart SS)” (EPA ICR No. 0659.13, OMB Control No. 2060-0108), 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 affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS (40 CFR part 60, subpart A) and any changes, or additions, to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart SS. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial notification reports, performance tests, periodic reports, and 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. Reports are also required semiannually.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Existing and new large appliance coating facilities.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart SS).
Estimated number of respondents: 72 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 7,740 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $787,000 (per year), which includes $8,400 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is a small increase in the total estimated respondent burden and cost compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to assuming that all existing respondents will need to spend some time reviewing the rule requirement each year to re-familiarize themselves with it. In previous ICRs, it was assumed that only new respondents would need to read and review the rule requirement. In addition, a portion of the increase in burden cost is due to using updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
