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 for the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart F. 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 Start Printed Page 35084used by EPA to determine compliance with these standards.
Form Numbers: None.
Respondents/affected entities: Portland cement plants.
Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart F).
Estimated number of respondents: 92 (total).
Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually.
Total estimated burden: 14,100 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
Total estimated cost: $2,390,000 (per year), which includes $744,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
Changes in the estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is due to a decrease in the number of affected existing facilities, as identified by a review of Portland cement facilities reporting in EPA's ECHO and GHGRP databases. This change also results in a decrease in operation and maintenance costs. This ICR maintains an assumption that there will be no new respondents over the next three years, but two existing plants will undergo modification or reconstruction. Therefore, the capital costs have not changed from the previous ICR.
