Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are establishments primarily engaged in all types of electroplating, electroless plating, metal spraying, anodizing, coloring, and finishing of metals and formed products for the trade. Also potentially affected by this action are establishments which perform these types of activities, on their own account, on purchased metals or formed SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate jul<14>2003 17:05 Jul 28, 2005 Jkt 205001 products.

Title: Information Request for National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Plating and Polishing Operations. Abstract: The proposed ICR will collect information and data from 930 existing plating and polishing facilities. Facilities will be requested to complete a simple paper questionnaire on general facility information (location, description, processes, electroplating finishes applied, technical contact), hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions and permit data, permit conditions, emission tests data, processes and equipment, HAP-containing material data, local ventilation system information, and HAP emission control/ reduction measures. The questionnaire may be completed from readily available information; no additional emission testing or monitoring will be required. The EPA will use the collected information and data to evaluate the need for area source NESHAP required under section 112(k) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for the Plating and Polishing Area Source Category. If the area source NESHAP are developed, the collected information will be used to evaluate the types of provisions needed to limit HAP emissions from plating and polishing operations and to estimate the impacts of regulatory options. This collection of information is mandatory under section 114 of the CAA (42 U.S.C 7414). All information submitted to EPA pursuant to this ICR for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded according to Agency policies in 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. OMB control numbers for EPA’s regulations in 40 CFR are listed in 40 CFR part 9. The EPA would like to solicit comments to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 proposed collection of information, including the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Burden Statement: The projected cost and hour burden for this one-time collection is $720,000 and 11,400 hours. This burden is based on an estimated 930 likely respondents and an average annual respondent burden of 12 hours at a cost of $770 per facility. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are 
establishments primarily engaged in all types of electroplating, 
electroless plating, metal spraying, anodizing, coloring, and finishing 
of metals and formed products for the trade. Also potentially affected 
by this action are establishments which perform these types of 
activities, on their own account, on purchased metals or formed 
products. The standard industrial classification (SIC) code for this 
industry is primarily 3471, Electroplating, Plating, Polishing, 
Anodizing, and Coloring; the North American Industry Classification 
System (NAICS) code is 332813, Electroplating, Plating, Polishing, 
Anodizing, and Coloring.
    Title: Information Request for National Emission Standards for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Plating and Polishing 
Operations.
    Abstract: The proposed ICR will collect information and data from 
930 existing plating and polishing facilities. Facilities will be 
requested to complete a simple paper questionnaire on general facility 
information (location, description, processes, electroplating finishes 
applied, technical contact), hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions 
and permit data, permit conditions, emission tests data, processes and 
equipment, HAP-containing material data, local ventilation system 
information, and HAP emission control/reduction measures. The 
questionnaire may be completed from readily available information; no 
additional emission testing or monitoring will be required.
    The EPA will use the collected information and data to evaluate the 
need for area source NESHAP required under section 112(k) of the Clean 
Air Act (CAA) for the Plating and Polishing Area Source Category. If 
the area source NESHAP are developed, the collected information will be 
used to evaluate the types of provisions needed to limit HAP emissions 
from plating and polishing operations and to estimate the impacts of 
regulatory options.
    This collection of information is mandatory under section 114 of 
the CAA (42 U.S.C 7414). All information submitted to EPA pursuant to 
this ICR for which a claim of confidentiality is made is safeguarded 
according to Agency policies in 40 CFR part 2, subpart B. An agency may 
not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a 
collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number. OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations in 40 CFR are 
listed in 40 CFR part 9.
    The EPA would like to solicit comments to:
    (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden 
of the proposed collection of information, including the methodology 
and assumptions used;
    (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
to be collected; and
    (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Burden Statement: The projected cost and hour burden for this one-
time collection is $720,000 and 11,400 hours. This burden is based on 
an estimated 930 likely respondents and an average annual respondent 
burden of 12 hours at a cost of $770 per facility. Burden means the 
total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to 
generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or 
for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and 
systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any 
previously applicable instructions and requirements; train personnel to 
be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; 
complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or 
otherwise disclose the information.
