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 are specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Db. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial notification, 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: Industrial, commercial, and institutional steam generating units.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart Db).
Estimated number of respondents: 1,846 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 1,690,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $210,000,000 (per year), which includes $35,100,000 in both annualized capital/startup and operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the overall burden in this ICR from the most-recently approved ICR. This is due to a projection of industry growth, resulting in additional sources becoming subject to the regulation. The growth projection is based on the Agency's November 2011 industry analysis. This results in an increase in the respondent labor Start Printed Page 47797hours, labor costs, capital and O&M costs, and number of responses.Start Signature
