Title: The Consolidated Federal Air Rule for SOCMI (Renewal) Abstract: This information collection request (ICR) is for the Consolidated Federal Air Rule (CAR) for the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturing Industry (SOCMI) and its referencing subparts. EPA will use this information to ensure compliance with the provisions in the CAR and its referencing subparts. E:\FR\FM\01SEN1.SGM 01SEN1 52096 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 169 / Thursday, September 1, 2005 / Notices All existing sources must be in compliance with the requirements of the CAR and/or its referencing subparts within three years of the effective date (i.e., promulgation date) of the appropriate standard for the affected source. All new sources must be in compliance with the requirements of the CAR and/or its referencing subparts upon startup or the promulgation date of standards for an affected source, whichever is later. Compliance is assumed through initial performance testing or design analysis, as appropriate, and ongoing compliance is demonstrated through parametric monitoring. Types of parameters monitored are incinerator temperature, scrubber flow rate, carbon adsorber regeneration frequency as well as others. The appropriate parameter to monitor depends on the type of control device with which the owner or operator chooses to comply. The recordkeeping and reporting requirements in the standards ensure compliance with the applicable regulations which were promulgated in accordance with the Clean Air Act (CAA). The collected information is also used for targeting inspections and as evidence in legal proceedings. Performance tests are required in order to determine an affected facility’s initial capability to comply with the emission standards. In addition, continuous emission monitors are used to ensure that the respondent complies with the standards at all times. During the performance test, a record of the operating parameters under which compliance was achieved may be recorded and used to determine compliance in place of a continuous emission monitor. The notifications required in the standards are used to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject to the requirements of the regulations. The reviewing authority may then inspect the source to ensure that the pollution control devices are properly installed and operated, that leaks are detected and repaired, and that the standards are met. The performance test may also be observed. The required reports are used to determine periods of excess emissions, identify problems at the facility, verify operation/maintenance procedures, and for compliance determinations. 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. The OMB Control Numbers for EPA’s regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, VerDate Aug<18>2005 16:30 Aug 31, 2005 Jkt 205001 and are identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 180 hours per response. 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: Facilities in the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturing Industry. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,913. Frequency of Response: Initially, annually, semiannually and on occasion. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,057,270. Estimated Total Annual Costs: $226,718,704, which includes $3,404,000 in annualized Capital/ startup costs, $91,956,000 annual O&M costs, and $131,358,704 in Respondent Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in burden of 108,330 hours from the most recently approved ICR. Some 35,758 hours of the changes are a program change for NSPS subparts Kb, VV, DDD, III, NNN and RRR, which no longer require Notifications of Anticipated Startup. The balance of the changes (72,572 hours) are adjustments due primarily to correction of errors and the addition of clerical and managerial hours to the burden calculation. There is a corresponding decrease in the average hours per response of 29 hours; from 209 hours per response to 180 hours per response. There was a decrease of $4,561,000 in the Total Capital/Startup and Operation and Maintenance Costs due to an error in the previous ICR regarding the costs for monitoring equipment when determining Total Capital/Startup and Operation and Maintenance Costs for subpart Kb and subpart G of the Hazardous Organic National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (HON). The cost for certain control PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 devices was inadvertently included in the previous ICR. Dated: August 26, 2005.

Manufacturing Industry (SOCMI) and its referencing subparts. EPA will 
use this information to ensure compliance with the provisions in the 
CAR and its referencing subparts.

[[Page 52096]]

    All existing sources must be in compliance with the requirements of 
the CAR and/or its referencing subparts within three years of the 
effective date (i.e., promulgation date) of the appropriate standard 
for the affected source. All new sources must be in compliance with the 
requirements of the CAR and/or its referencing subparts upon startup or 
the promulgation date of standards for an affected source, whichever is 
later. Compliance is assumed through initial performance testing or 
design analysis, as appropriate, and ongoing compliance is demonstrated 
through parametric monitoring. Types of parameters monitored are 
incinerator temperature, scrubber flow rate, carbon adsorber 
regeneration frequency as well as others. The appropriate parameter to 
monitor depends on the type of control device with which the owner or 
operator chooses to comply.
    The recordkeeping and reporting requirements in the standards 
ensure compliance with the applicable regulations which were 
promulgated in accordance with the Clean Air Act (CAA). The collected 
information is also used for targeting inspections and as evidence in 
legal proceedings.
    Performance tests are required in order to determine an affected 
facility's initial capability to comply with the emission standards. In 
addition, continuous emission monitors are used to ensure that the 
respondent complies with the standards at all times. During the 
performance test, a record of the operating parameters under which

requirements of the regulations. The reviewing authority may then 
inspect the source to ensure that the pollution control devices are 
properly installed and operated, that leaks are detected and repaired, 
and that the standards are met. The performance test may also be 
observed.
    The required reports are used to determine periods of excess 
emissions, identify problems at the facility, verify operation/
maintenance procedures, and for compliance determinations.
    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. The OMB Control Numbers for EPA's 
regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15, and are 
identified on the form and/or instrument, if applicable.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 180 
hours per response. 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.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Facilities in the Synthetic Organic 
Chemical Manufacturing Industry.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,913.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, annually, semiannually and on 
occasion.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,057,270.
    Estimated Total Annual Costs: $226,718,704, which includes 
$3,404,000 in annualized Capital/startup costs, $91,956,000 annual O&M 
costs, and $131,358,704 in Respondent Labor Costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in burden of 108,330 
hours from the most recently approved ICR. Some 35,758 hours of the 
changes are a program change for NSPS subparts Kb, VV, DDD, III, NNN 
and RRR, which no longer require Notifications of Anticipated Startup. 
The balance of the changes (72,572 hours) are adjustments due primarily 
to correction of errors and the addition of clerical and managerial 
hours to the burden calculation. There is a corresponding decrease in 
the average hours per response of 29 hours; from 209 hours per response 
to 180 hours per response. There was a decrease of $4,561,000 in the 
Total Capital/Startup and Operation and Maintenance Costs due to an 
error in the previous ICR regarding the costs for monitoring equipment 
when determining Total Capital/Startup and Operation and Maintenance 
Costs for subpart Kb and subpart G of the Hazardous Organic National 
Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (HON). The cost for 
certain control devices was inadvertently included in the previous ICR.
