Title: Information Collection Request for Requirements for Control Technology Determinations From Major Sources in Accordance With Clean Air Act Sections, Sections 112(g) and 112(j). ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1648.06, OMB Control No. 2060–0266. ICR status: The previous ICR expired on May 31, 2005. 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, are 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 regulations governing section 112(j) case-by-case MACT determinations were promulgated on May 20, 1994 (59 FR 26449), and amended last on May 30, 2003 (68 FR 32586). E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1 sroberts on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 75 / Thursday, April 17, 2008 / Notices The affected entities of this ICR are major sources of polyvinyl chloride and copolymers production; brick and structural clay products manufacturing; clay ceramics manufacturing; and industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters. Previous MACT standards for these source categories have been vacated by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Sources previously subject or would have been subject to those MACT standards would be those entities affected by this ICR. Owners and operators of affected sources must submit title V permit applications or amendments to establish case-by-case MACT terms and conditions. We anticipate that this ICR will cover any activities involving preparing, submitting, and reviewing the Parts 1 and 2 permit applications and applicability determinations, developing the title V permit terms and conditions, and the permit review and approval process. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 92.6 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: Respondents include owners/operators of major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) in the following source categories: polyvinyl chloride and copolymers production, brick and structural clay products manufacturing, clay ceramics manufacturing, and industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,573. Frequency of Response: Once. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 151,730. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $9,995,666. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:08 Apr 16, 2008 Jkt 214001 Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 20,470 hours in the total estimated burden previously identified in the expired ICR in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The ICR 1648.04 spanned the period in which the section 112(j) rule would have applied to any of the 59 source categories covered by the 2000 MACT standards (the 10-year bin). This ICR would affect only the 4 source categories covered by the MACT standards that have been vacated by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Unlike ICR No. 1648.04, which estimated the burden from the Part 1 application only (because all the MACT standards were promulgated before Part 2 applied), this ICR estimates burden for preparing, submitting, and reviewing the Parts 1 and 2 permit applications and applicability determinations, developing the title V permit terms and conditions, and the permit review and approval process. This ICR also estimates the number of responses on a facility basis instead of an individual boiler basis as the previous ICR did, because each facility will submit one application for the facility, not each boiler. Finally, EPA has updated the labor rates for respondents, State, Local, and Tribal agencies, and the EPA. These adjustments were made to more accurately reflect the true cost of an hour of labor for the respondents, State, Local, and Tribal agencies, and the EPA. The unloaded hourly rates are different because they are based on the latest available rates from the BLS and the OPM. In summary, the difference in the burden estimate is due to the adjustments discussed above, including number of respondents, submittal of permit applications, development of the permit, and updated labor rates.

Air Act Sections, Sections 112(g) and 112(j).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1648.06, OMB Control No. 2060-0266.
    ICR status: The previous ICR expired on May 31, 2005. 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, are 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 regulations governing section 112(j) case-by-case 
MACT determinations were promulgated on May 20, 1994 (59 FR 26449), and 
amended last on May 30, 2003 (68 FR 32586).

[[Page 20921]]

    The affected entities of this ICR are major sources of polyvinyl 
chloride and copolymers production; brick and structural clay products 
manufacturing; clay ceramics manufacturing; and industrial, commercial, 
and institutional boilers and process heaters. Previous MACT standards 
for these source categories have been vacated by the U.S. Court of 
Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Sources previously 
subject or would have been subject to those MACT standards would be 
those entities affected by this ICR.
    Owners and operators of affected sources must submit title V permit 
applications or amendments to establish case-by-case MACT terms and 
conditions. We anticipate that this ICR will cover any activities 
involving preparing, submitting, and reviewing the Parts 1 and 2 permit 
applications and applicability determinations, developing the title V 
permit terms and conditions, and the permit review and approval 
process.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 92.6 
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: Respondents include owners/operators 
of major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) in the following 
source categories: polyvinyl chloride and copolymers production, brick 
and structural clay products manufacturing, clay ceramics 
manufacturing, and industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers 
and process heaters.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,573.
    Frequency of Response: Once.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 151,730.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $9,995,666.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 20,470 hours in 
the total estimated burden previously identified in the expired ICR in 
the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens.
    The ICR 1648.04 spanned the period in which the section 112(j) rule 
would have applied to any of the 59 source categories covered by the 
2000 MACT standards (the 10-year bin). This ICR would affect only the 4 
source categories covered by the MACT standards that have been vacated 
by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia 
Circuit. Unlike ICR No. 1648.04, which estimated the burden from the 
Part 1 application only (because all the MACT standards were 
promulgated before Part 2 applied), this ICR estimates burden for 
preparing, submitting, and reviewing the Parts 1 and 2 permit 
applications and applicability determinations, developing the title V 
permit terms and conditions, and the permit review and approval 
process.
    This ICR also estimates the number of responses on a facility basis 
instead of an individual boiler basis as the previous ICR did, because 
each facility will submit one application for the facility, not each 
boiler.
    Finally, EPA has updated the labor rates for respondents, State, 
Local, and Tribal agencies, and the EPA. These adjustments were made to 
more accurately reflect the true cost of an hour of labor for the 
respondents, State, Local, and Tribal agencies, and the EPA. The 
unloaded hourly rates are different because they are based on the 
latest available rates from the BLS and the OPM.
    In summary, the difference in the burden estimate is due to the 
adjustments discussed above, including number of respondents, submittal 
of permit applications, development of the permit, and updated labor 
rates.
