Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Glass Manufacturing Plants (40 CFR part 60, subpart CC) were proposed on June 15, 1979; promulgated on October 7, 1980; and amended on both October 19, 1984, and October 17, 2000. These regulations apply to both existing and new glass melting furnaces located at glass manufacturing plants. Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), as well as for the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart CC. 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. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart CC.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Glass manufacturing facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart CC).

Estimated number of respondents: 41 (total).

Frequency of response: Semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 850 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $338,000 (per year), which includes $238,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in burden from the most recently approved ICR as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for this industry is very low or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, there are also no changes in the capital/startup or operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
