Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 62806 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 11, 2011 / Notices continue to conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. Abstract: The National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Pesticide Active Ingredient Production were proposed on November 10, 1997 (62 FR 60579), and promulgated on June 23, 1999, (64 FR 33550). Owners or operators of pesticide active ingredient (PAI) production facilities to which this regulation applies must choose one of the compliance options that are described in the rule or install and monitor a specific control system that reduces hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions to the compliance level. The respondents are subject to sections of subpart A of 40 CFR part 63 relating to NESHAP. These requirements include those associated with the applicability determination; the notification that the facility is subject to the rule; the notification of testing [control device performance test and continuous monitoring system (CMS) performance evaluation]; the results of performance testing and CMS performance evaluations; startup, shutdown, and malfunction reports; semiannual or quarterly summary reports, and/or excess emissions reports; and CMS performance reports. In addition to the requirements of subpart A, many respondents are required to submit precompliance plan and leak detection and repair (LDAR) reports; and plants that wish to implement emissions averaging provisions must submit an emissionaveraging plan. Respondents electing to comply with the emission limit or emission reduction requirements for process vents, storage tanks, or wastewater must record the values of equipment operating parameters as specified in 40 CFR 63.1367 of the rule. Owners or operators of PAI production facilities 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. 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 MMM, 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:47 Oct 07, 2011 Jkt 226001 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 is estimated to average 57 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: Pesticide active ingredient production. Estimated Number of Respondents: 15. Frequency of Response: Initially, quarterly, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,666. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $366,098, which includes $346,223 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $19,875 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: The adjustment decrease in burden from the most recently approved ICR is due to a more accurate estimate of existing and anticipated new sources. After consulting with the EPA Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS), and a number of trade associations, our data indicates that there are approximately fifteen sources subject to the rule, as compared with the active ICR that shows eighty-eight sources. There are no new facilities expected to be constructed over the next three years of this ICR. The decline in the number of sources is due to: (1) Plant closures, including the cost to retrofit aging facilities increased due to the down turn in the economy; (2) corporate mergers; and (3) foreign competition. Therefore, there is a net decrease in the burden to industry. Because there are no new sources with reporting requirements, no capital/ PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 startup costs are incurred. The only cost that is incurred is for the operation and maintenance (O&M) of the monitoring equipment, which have decreased by $333,125 due to the decline in the number of sources, as explained above.
