Abstract: Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 63, subpart A), as well as for the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEEE. This includes submitting initial notification reports, performance tests and 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: Iron and steel foundries.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 98 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 30,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $3,490,000 (per year), which includes $400,000 in either annualized capital/startup or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden and cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because this ICR assumes that all existing respondents will have to familiarize with regulatory requirements each year.

There is a small adjustment decrease of $60 in the total capital and O&M cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The change in estimates occurred because this ICR rounds totals to three significant figures.
