Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are businesses and other for-profit as well as State, local, or tribal governments. Title: RCRA Expanded Public Participation. ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1688.06, OMB Control No. 2050–0149. ICR status: This ICR is currently scheduled to expire on October 31, 2008. 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: Section 7004(b) of RCRA gives EPA broad authority to provide for, encourage, and assist public participation in the development, revision, implementation, and enforcement of any regulation, guideline, information, or program under RCRA. In addition, the statute specifies certain public notices (i.e., radio, newspaper, and a letter to relevant agencies) that EPA must provide before issuing any RCRA permit. The statute also establishes a process by which the public can dispute a permit and request a public hearing to discuss it. EPA carries out much of its RCRA public involvement at 40 CFR parts 124 and 270. In 1995, EPA expanded the public participation requirements under the RCRA program by promulgating the RCRA Expanded Public Participation Rule (60 FR 63417; December 11, 1995). The rule responded to calls by the Administration and stakeholders (e.g., States and private citizens) to provide earlier and better public participation in EPA’s permitting programs, including procedures for more timely information sharing. In particular, the rule requires earlier public involvement in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:35 Jun 09, 2008 Jkt 211001 permitting process (e.g., pre-application meetings), expanded public notice for significant events (e.g., notices of upcoming trial burns), and more opportunities for the exchange of permitting information (e.g., information repository). The required activities and information are needed to help assure timely and effective public participation in the permitting process. The requirements are intended to provide equal access to information to all stakeholders in the permitting process: the permitting agency, the permit applicant, and the community where a facility is located. Some facilities may be required to develop information repositories to allow for expanded public participation and access to detailed facility information as part of the permitting process. EPA sought to reduce the reporting frequency to the minimum that is necessary to ensure compliance with the rule. It would not be possible to collect this information less frequently and still assure that the requirements of permit and public involvement regulations are met by owners or operators. The reporting frequency is essential to assure that any changes in the trial burn plans or in the anticipated permit application contents are made known to EPA and to the public. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 91 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. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: Estimated total number of potential respondents: 33. Frequency of response: On occasion. Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated total annual burden hours: 3,005 hours. Estimated total annual costs: $3,409, which includes $546 annualized capital and $2,863 O&M costs. What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process, please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: May 27, 2008.

Title: NESHAP for Leather Finishing Operations (Renewal). ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1985.04, OMB Control Number 2060– 0478. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 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) for Leather Finishing Operations were proposed on October 2, 2000 (65 FR 58702), and promulgated on February 27, 2002. These standards apply to any existing, reconstructed, or new leather finishing operations. A leather finishing operation is a single process or group of processes used to adjust and improve the physical and aesthetic characteristics of the leather surface through multistage application of a coating comprised of dyes, pigments, film-forming materials and performance modifiers dissolved or suspended in liquid carriers. A leather finishing operation is only subject to the regulation if it is a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP), emitting or has the potential to emit any single HAP at the rate of 10 tons (9.07 megagrams) or more per year or any combination of HAP at a rate of 25 tons (22.68 megagrams). Owners and operators must submit notification reports upon the construction or reconstruction of any leather finishing operation. Any leather finishing operation that starts up after proposal but before promulgation must submit an initial notification similar to the one submitted by existing sources. Each new or reconstructed source that starts up after promulgation must submit a series of notifications in addition to the initial notification that include notification of intent to construct or reconstruct and notification of startup. Upon the collection of twelve PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32705 months of data after the date of initial notification, owners or operators of leather finishing operations must submit an annual compliance status certification report and annually thereafter. Owners or operators of a leather finishing operation subject to the rule must 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. Notifications are to inform the Agency or delegated authority when a source becomes subject to the standard. The reviewing authority may then inspect the source to ensure that the pollution control devices are properly installed and operating and that the standards are being met. Performance test reports are required as these are the Agency’s records of a source’s initial capability to comply with the emission standards and to serve as a record of the operating conditions under which compliance was achieved. The information generated by monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements described in this ICR are used by the Agency to ensure that facilities that are affected by the standard continue to operate the control equipment and achieve continuous compliance with the regulation. 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 TTTT, as authorized in sections 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 listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15 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 33 hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose and 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 E:\FR\FM\10JNN1.SGM 10JNN1 32706 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 10, 2008 / Notices maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information. All existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Leather finishing operations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 334. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $21,279.00, inclusion of labor costs. There are no annualized capital/startup and annual O&M 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: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and there are not anticipated changes over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or nonexistent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. Since 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, and there is no change in burden to industry. announcing listening sessions for the Draft Toxicological Review of Cerium Oxide and Cerium Compounds (73 FR 31683, June 3, 2008) and the Draft Toxicological Review of Beryllium and Compounds (73 FR 31861, June 4, 2008).

    Title: NESHAP for Leather Finishing Operations (Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1985.04, OMB Control Number 2060-0478.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2008. 
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) for Leather Finishing Operations were proposed on 
October 2, 2000 (65 FR 58702), and promulgated on February 27, 2002. 
These standards apply to any existing, reconstructed, or new leather 
finishing operations. A leather finishing operation is a single process 
or group of processes used to adjust and improve the physical and 
aesthetic characteristics of the leather surface through multistage 
application of a coating comprised of dyes, pigments, film-forming 
materials and performance modifiers dissolved or suspended in liquid 
carriers. A leather finishing operation is only subject to the 
regulation if it is a major source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP), 
emitting or has the potential to emit any single HAP at the rate of 10 
tons (9.07 megagrams) or more per year or any combination of HAP at a 
rate of 25 tons (22.68 megagrams).
    Owners and operators must submit notification reports upon the 
construction or reconstruction of any leather finishing operation. Any 
leather finishing operation that starts up after proposal but before 
promulgation must submit an initial notification similar to the one 
submitted by existing sources. Each new or reconstructed source that 
starts up after promulgation must submit a series of notifications in 
addition to the initial notification that include notification of 
intent to construct or reconstruct and notification of startup. Upon 
the collection of twelve months of data after the date of initial 
notification, owners or operators of leather finishing operations must 
submit an annual compliance status certification report and annually 
thereafter. Owners or operators of a leather finishing operation 
subject to the rule must 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.
    Notifications are to inform the Agency or delegated authority when 
a source becomes subject to the standard. The reviewing authority may 
then inspect the source to ensure that the pollution control devices 
are properly installed and operating and that the standards are being 
met. Performance test reports are required as these are the Agency's 
records of a source's initial capability to comply with the emission 
standards and to serve as a record of the operating conditions under 
which compliance was achieved. The information generated by monitoring, 
recordkeeping and reporting requirements described in this ICR are used 
by the Agency to ensure that facilities that are affected by the 
standard continue to operate the control equipment and achieve 
continuous compliance with the regulation.
    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 TTTT, as 
authorized in sections 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 listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15 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 33 
hours per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial 
resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or 
disclose and 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

[[Page 32706]]

maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information. All 
existing ways will have to adjust to comply with any previously 
applicable instructions and requirements that 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: Leather finishing operations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 10.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 334.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $21,279.00, inclusion of labor costs. 
There are no annualized capital/startup and annual O&M 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: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and there are not anticipated changes over the next three 
years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative 
or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall 
burden.
    Since 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, and there is no change in burden 
to industry.
