Abstract: Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), as well as the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart BBa. 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: Kraft pulp mills.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 Subpart BBa).
Estimated number of respondents: 10 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 3,950 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $1,230,000 (per year), which includes $821,000 for both annualized capital/startup and operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden and labor costs 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 for two reasons. First, this ICR assumes all existing respondents will have to familiarize with the regulatory requirements each year. Second, the burden has increased due an increase in the estimated number of sources subject to the standard.
There is also an increase in the total capital and O&M costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is due to an increase in the estimated number of sources, and because in year 2 of this ICR existing sources will need to repeat performance tests that are required every 5 years.
