ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 0660.11, OMB Control Number 2060– 0107. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2011. 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: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for the regulations published at 40 CFR part 60, subpart TT were proposed on January 5, 1981 and promulgated on November 1, 1982. These regulations apply to the following surface coating lines in the metal coil surface coating industry: each prime coat operation, each finish coat operation, and each prime and finish coat operation cured simultaneously where the finish coat is applied wet on wet over the prime coat. In general, all New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) require initial notifications, performance tests, VerDate Mar<15>2010 22:00 Dec 23, 2011 Jkt 226001 and periodic reports. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance, and are required of all sources subject to NSPS. 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 TT, 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. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 41 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: Metal coil surface coating facilities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 158. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, annually, and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 15,643. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,829,259, which includes $1,497,459 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $331,800 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. Consultations with EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) and trade associations revealed that there are approximately PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 158 sources subject to the rule, with no new facilities expected to be constructed over the next three years of this ICR. However, there is an increase in the estimated burden cost as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. The increase is not due to any program changes. The change in burden is due to the use of the most updated labor rates. Dated: December 20, 2011. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: In 1995, EPA promulgated regulations in 40 CFR Part 273 that govern the collection and management of widely-generated hazardous wastes known as ‘‘Universal Wastes’’. Universal Wastes are wastes that are generated in non-industrial settings by a vast community, and are present in nonhazardous waste management systems. Examples of Universal Wastes include certain batteries, pesticides, mercurycontaining lamps and thermostats. The Part 273 regulations are designed to separate Universal Waste from the municipal wastestream by encouraging individuals and organizations to collect these wastes and to manage them in an appropriate hazardous waste management system. EPA distinguishes two types of handlers of Universal Wastes: small quantity handlers of Universal Waste (SQHUW) and large quantity handlers of Universal Waste (LQHUW). SQHUWs do not accumulate more than 5,000 kg of any one category of Universal Waste at one time, while LQHUWs may accumulate quantities at or above this threshold. More stringent requirements are imposed on LQHUWs because of greater potential environmental risks. In 2001, EPA promulgated regulations in 40 CFR Part 266 that provide increased flexibility to facilities managing wastes commonly known as ‘‘Mixed Waste’’. Mixed Waste are lowlevel mixed waste (LLMW), and naturally occurring and/or acceleratorproduced radioactive material (NARM) containing hazardous waste. These wastes are also regulated by the Atomic Energy Act. As long as specified eligibility criteria and conditions are met, LLMW and NARM are exempt from the definition of hazardous waste as defined in part 261. Although these eligible wastes are exempted from RCRA manifest, transportation, and disposal requirements, they must still comply with the manifest, transportation, and disposal requirements under the NRC (or NRC–Agreement State) regulations. And finally, in 1992, EPA finalized management standards for used oils destined for recycling. The Agency codified the used oil management standards in part 279 of 40 CFR. The regulations at 40 CFR part 279 establish, among other things, streamlined procedures for notification, testing, labeling, and recordkeeping. They also PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 80931 establish a flexible self-implementing approach for tracking off-site shipments that allow used oil handlers to use standard business practices (e.g., invoices, bill of lading). In addition, part 279 sets standards for the prevention and cleanup of releases to the environment during storage and transit. EPA believes these requirements will minimize potential mismanagement of used oils, while not discouraging recycling. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 4.9 hours per response. The total public recordkeeping burden for the Universal Waste requirements is estimated to average 0.2 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: Private Sector and State, Local, or Tribal Governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 123,164. Frequency of Response: Biennially, occasionally. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 651,165 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $34,534,985 which includes $10,014,520 annualized capital and O&M costs and $24,520,465 annualized labor costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 30 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This is due to an adjustment in the state universal waste program. Dated: December 16, 2011. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1597.10, OMB Control No. 2050-0145.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2011. 
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

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.

costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 30 hours in the 
total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This is due to an adjustment in the state 
universal waste program.
