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.

    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 pre-compliance plan and leak detection and repair 
(LDAR) reports; and plants that wish to implement emissions averaging 
provisions must submit an emission-averaging 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 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

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/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.
