Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has submitted an information collection request (ICR), NESHAP for Polyvinyl Chloride and Copolymers Production (EPA ICR Number 2432.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0666), 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 March 31, 2019.

Abstract: The National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Polyvinyl Chloride and Copolymers Production (40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHHHH) apply to both existing and new PVC production facilities. Area source PVC facilities are subject to 40 CFR part 63, subpart DDDDDD and not covered in this ICR. 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, and are required of all affected facilities subject to NESHAP. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHHHH.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Polyvinyl chloride and copolymer production facilities that are major sources of HAP.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart HHHHHHH).
Estimated number of respondents: 15 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 338,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $45,500,000 (per year), which includes $7,060,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the burden hours in this ICR, compared to the previous ICR, due to a decrease in the number of respondents. In addition, there is an increase in operation and maintenance costs due to updated cost estimates for process vent testing, which were provided by the Vinyl Institute.
