ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 0982.09, OMB Control Number 2060– 0016. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on November 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 48 CFR chapter 15, and displayed either by publication in the PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55507 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 New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Metallic Mineral Processing Plants (40 CFR part 60, subpart LL) were promulgated on February 21, 1984. This NSPS affects owners and operators of metallic mineral processing plants. Owners and operators must conduct initial performance tests, maintain records of startups, shutdowns, and malfunction and continuous monitoring system parameters, and submit semiannual reports. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance; and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NSPS. 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 check if the pollution control devices are properly installed and operating and 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 is to be achieved. The information generated by monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting requirements described in this ICR are used by the Agency to ensure that facilities 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 60, subpart LL, as authorized in section 112 and 114(a) of the Clean Air Act. The required information consists of emissions data and other information that has been determined to be private. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 52 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 E:\FR\FM\25SEN1.SGM 25SEN1 55508 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 187 / Thursday, September 25, 2008 / Notices information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjusting 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: Metallic mineral processing plants. Estimated Number of Respondents: 20. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 2,306. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $199,140, which is comprised of $13,000 in O&M costs, $186,140 in labor costs, and no annualized capital/startup costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. Dated: September 22, 2008.
