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 the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 63, subpart JJJ. This includes submitting initial notifications, 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: Thermoplastic resin production facilities.

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

Estimated number of respondents: 31 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and quarterly.

Total estimated burden: 177,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $9,350,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total estimated burden, labor costs, and capital and O&M costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because the previously-approved ICR only covered the burden and costs associated with the 2014 amendment. This ICR combines the burden from both the 2014 amendment and the pre-2014 requirements of the rule.
