This regulation covers resin and gel coat operations at fiberglass boat manufacturers, paint and coating operations at aluminum boat manufacturers, and carpet and fabric adhesive operations at all boat manufacturers. Owners/operators of boat manufacturing facilities are required to submit initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents 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. Semiannual reports are also required. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance; and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NESHAP. Any owner or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintain reports and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the EPA regional office. This information is being collected to assure compliance with 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart VVVV as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that have been determined to be private. 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 Number 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 are estimated to average 59 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:01 May 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; 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: Boat manufacturing facilities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 144. Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 26,327. Estimated Total Costs: Include $0 annualized Capital Startup costs, $800 annualized Operating and Maintenance Costs (O&M), and $2,336,986 annualized Labor Costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 15,984 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The adjustment increase in burden from the most recently approved ICR is due to a shift from initial compliance to continuous compliance for the subject sources. There is also an increase of five additional new sources per year over the three years of this ICR. There is also an increase in the labor rates which contributed to an increase in the dollar cost burden. to renew an existing approved collection. The ICR which is abstracted below describes the nature of the collection and the estimated burden and cost. DATES: Additional comments may be submitted on, or before July 2, 2007.

Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct, or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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 in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) using maximum achievable control technology (MACT) for control of chromium emissions from hard and decorative chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks were proposed on December 16, 1993 and promulgated on January 25, 1995. In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents that are not required to conduct an initial performance test (i.e., decorative chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing operations that use a wetting agent and meet the surface tension limit required by the rule, and decorative chromium electroplating operations that use a trivalent chromium bath) are required to notify the Administrator of the initial compliance status of the source. Owners, or operators also are required to maintain records of a source’s VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:01 May 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 operations, including 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. The types of reports required by these standards include initial compliance status reports. Periodic reports required by this standard include annual compliance status reports for area sources and semiannual compliance status reports for major sources, unless an exceedance has occurred which requires sources to submit such reports on a more frequent basis. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NESHAP standards. Any owner, or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state, or local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 83 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 which have subsequently changed; 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: Operators of hard chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, and chromium anodizing facilities/chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing tanks. Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,020. Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, semiannually, annually. Total Annual Hour Burden: 495,774 hours. PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30377 Estimated Total Annual Cost: $106,662,892, of which $75,300,000 accounts for annual O&M costs and $31,362,892 are labor costs. There are no annualized capital/startup costs associated with this ICR. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years. Second, the growth rate for the industry is very low, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Because there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR to estimate the industry and Federal Government burdens. There is one exception: The burden associated with regulators attending performance tests was deleted because that activity is considered part of the implementation of the enforcement program and cannot be attributed to this rule.

Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1611.06, OMB Control Number 2060-0327.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2007. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct, or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, and displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The national emission standards for hazardous air 
pollutants (NESHAP) using maximum achievable control technology (MACT) 
for control of chromium emissions from hard and decorative chromium 
electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks were proposed on December 
16, 1993 and promulgated on January 25, 1995.
    In general, all NESHAP standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents that are not 
required to conduct an initial performance test (i.e., decorative 
chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing operations that use a 
wetting agent and meet the surface tension limit required by the rule, 
and decorative chromium electroplating operations that use a trivalent 
chromium bath) are required to notify the Administrator of the initial 
compliance status of the source. Owners, or operators also are required 
to maintain records of a source's operations, including 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. The types of reports required by these standards 
include initial compliance status reports. Periodic reports required by 
this standard include annual compliance status reports for area sources 
and semiannual compliance status reports for major sources, unless an 
exceedance has occurred which requires sources to submit such reports 
on a more frequent basis. These notifications, reports, and records are 
essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources 
subject to NESHAP standards.
    Any owner, or operator subject to the provisions of this part shall 
maintain a file of these measurements, and retain the file for at least 
five years following the date of such measurements, maintenance 
reports, and records. All reports are sent to the delegated state, or 
local authority. In the event that there is no such delegated 
authority, the reports are sent directly to the United States 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regional office.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 83 
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 which have subsequently changed; 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: Operators of hard chromium 
electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, and chromium 
anodizing facilities/chromium electroplating, or chromium anodizing 
tanks.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 5,020.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, semiannually, 
annually.
    Total Annual Hour Burden: 495,774 hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $106,662,892, of which $75,300,000 
accounts for annual O&M costs and $31,362,892 are labor costs. There 
are no annualized capital/startup costs associated with this ICR.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours or 
cost in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two 
considerations. First, the regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years. Second, the growth rate for the industry is very low, so there 
is no significant change in the overall burden.
    Because there are no changes in the regulatory requirements and 
there is no significant industry growth, the labor hours and cost 
figures in the previous ICR are used in this ICR to estimate the 
industry and Federal Government burdens. There is one exception: The 
burden associated with regulators attending performance tests was 
deleted because that activity is considered part of the implementation 
of the enforcement program and cannot be attributed to this rule.
