Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Printing, Coating and Dyeing of Fabrics and Other Textiles apply to each existing, new, or reconstructed source involved in printing, coating, slashing, dyeing or finishing of fabric and other textiles. 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 OOOO.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/Affected Entities: Facilities involved in the printing, coating, slashing, dyeing or finishing of fabric and other textiles.

Respondent's Obligation to Respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart OOOO).

Estimated Number of Respondents: 43 (total).

Frequency of Response: Initially and semiannually.

Total Estimated Burden: 6,700 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total Estimated Cost: $760,000 (per year), which includes $1,120 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: The decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to an adjustment that has more accurate estimates in the number of sources. There is a significant decrease in the number of respondents from the previously-approved ICR, as based on current Agency analyses. This decrease also results in a reduced number of responses. The decrease in the capital/startup vs. operation and maintenance (O&M) costs as calculated in section 6(b)(iii) is due to the decrease in the number of respondents and there being no additional sources projected over the next 3 years. The overall result is a decrease in burden hours and costs.
