ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1658.05, OMB Control No. 2060–0373. ICR status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 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, 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 112(g)(2)(B) of the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 (CAA) requires that maximum achievable control technology (MACT) PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51811 standards be met by constructed or reconstructed major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAP). Where no applicable emission limit has been set, the MACT determination shall be made on a case-by-case basis. The source owner or operator must submit certain information to allow the permitting authority to perform a caseby-case MACT determination (40 CFR 63.43(e)). Permitting agencies, either State, local, Tribal or Federal, review information submitted and make caseby-case MACT determinations. Specific activities and requirements are listed and described in the Supporting Statement for the ICR. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 134 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: Owners or operators who construct or reconstruct a major source of HAP emissions and are responsible for obtaining a case-by-case MACT determination under CAA section 112(g); State, local, and Tribal agencies with operating permit programs that have been approved by EPA. Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 48. Frequency of Response: Once. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 6,437. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $432,503, which includes $969 in O&M costs and no capital costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 30,363 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. The primary reason for the decrease in estimated burden hours is because the universe of potentially affected sources is much smaller than that estimated under the currently approved ICR. The 112(g) regulation E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1 51812 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 173 / Friday, September 5, 2008 / Notices applies to constructed or reconstructed major sources for which no MACT standard exists. Since approval of the current ICR, we have completed promulgation of MACT standards for the source category list, resulting in few major sources that could be constructed or reconstructed over the next 3 years that do not have applicable MACT standards.

ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 2152.03, OMB Control No. 2060–0570. ICR Status: This ICR is currently 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, PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated the Clean Air Interstate Rule to Reduce Interstate Transport of Fine Particulate Matter and Ozone, which includes reporting requirements and combines these requirements with existing requirements from the Consolidated Emissions Reporting Rule (CERR), the Emission Reporting Requirements for Ozone State Implementation Plan (SIP) Revisions Relating to Statewide Budgets for NOX Emissions to Reduce Regional Transport of Ozone (NOX SIP Call) and the Acid Rain Program under Title IV of the CAA Amendments of 1990. Each of these three existing requirements has an approved ICR in place. This ICR is being submitted to account for the incremental burden associated with CAIR. The ICR details the additions and changes to reporting requirements associated with CAIR. These changes include: (1) Changes to existing requirements for emission reporting under the CERR; and (2) the addition of reporting requirements to support emissions trading in States using the CAIR model cap and trade rules. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 87 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.

    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1658.05, OMB Control No. 2060-0373.
    ICR status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on October 31, 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

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

described in the Supporting Statement for the ICR.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 134 
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

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: Owners or operators who construct or 
reconstruct a major source of HAP emissions and are responsible for 
obtaining a case-by-case MACT determination under CAA section 112(g); 
State, local, and Tribal agencies with operating permit programs that 
have been approved by EPA.
