Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has submitted an information collection request (ICR), NESHAP for Engine Test Cells/Stands (EPA ICR No. 2066.07, OMB Control No. 2060-0483), to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act. This is a proposed extension of the ICR, which is currently approved through November 30, 2018. Public comments were previously requested, via the Federal Register on June 29, 2017, during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. A fuller description of the ICR is given below, including its estimated burden and cost to the public. An agency may neither conduct nor sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
Additional comments may be submitted on or before December 13, 2018.
Submit your comments, referencing Docket ID Number EPA-HQ-OECA-2014-0091, to: (1) EPA online using www.regulations.gov (our preferred method), or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to: EPA Docket Center, Environmental Protection Agency, Mail Code 28221T, 1200 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20460; and (2) OMB via email to email@example.com. Address comments to OMB Desk Officer for EPA.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Engine Test Cells/Stands (40 CFR part 63, subpart PPPPP) apply to either new or reconstructed engine test cells/stands located at major source facilities that are being used for testing internal combustion engines. An engine test cell/stand is any apparatus used for testing uninstalled stationary or uninstalled mobile (motive) engines. A plant site that is a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions emits or has the potential to emit any single HAP at a rate of 10 tons (9.07 megagrams) or more per year or any combination of HAPs at a rate of 25 tons (22.68 megagrams) or more per year. New facilities include those that commenced construction or reconstruction after the date of proposal. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to 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. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart PPPPP.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of engine test cells/stands located at major source facilities that are being used for testing internal combustion engines.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart PPPPP).
Estimated number of respondents: 19 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 2,150 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $204,000 (per year), which includes $6,200 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total estimated burden, number of responses, and Capital and O&M costs from the most-recently approved ICR due to several adjustments. First, based on consultations with internal Agency experts, there is an increase in the estimated number of new sources. This renewal reflects burden for an increase in the total number of sources and incorporates burden for one-time requirements for the new source. Second, this renewal includes time for each affected facility to review rule requirements each year.
