Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either conduct or sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. Abstract The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart SS. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial notification, performance tests, periodic reports, and 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. Reports are also required semiannually. Burden Statement The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 27 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: Facilities that conduct surface coating operations for large appliances. Estimated Number of Respondents: 72. Frequency of Response: Occasionally and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 7,659. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $750,011, which includes $741,611 in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $8,400 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the labor hours in this ICR PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. However, there is an adjustment increase in burden costs for both the respondents and the Agency. The cost increase is due to an adjustment in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. Additionally, there is an increase in the total number of annual responses due to a mathematical correction made in the previous ICR. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 0659.12, OMB Control Number 2060-0108.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2012. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either conduct or 
sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending 
at OMB.

Abstract

    The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the 
NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or additions to the 
Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart SS.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial 
notification, performance tests, periodic reports, and 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. Reports are also required 
semiannually.

Burden Statement

    The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this 
collection of information is estimated to average 27 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: Facilities that conduct surface 
coating operations for large appliances.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 72.
    Frequency of Response: Occasionally and semiannually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 7,659.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $750,011, which includes $741,611 in 
labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $8,400 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. This is due to two 
considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative 
or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall 
burden. However, there is an adjustment increase in burden costs for 
both the respondents and the Agency. The cost increase is due to an 
adjustment in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the 
Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs.
    Additionally, there is an increase in the total number of annual 
responses due to a mathematical correction made in the previous ICR.
