ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1093.10, OMB Control Number 2060– 0162. ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2013. 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 TTT. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Jan 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 notification report, 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 35 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: Owners and operators of facilities that apply surface coatings to plastic parts for use in the manufacture of business machines. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10. Frequency of Response: Quarterly and semiannually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 979. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $94,725, which includes $94,725 in labor costs, and neither capital/startup costs, nor operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of one hour in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program change, but rather it is due to the fact that the current total of burden hours was rounded off to the nexthighest whole number. There is an increase in costs for both the respondents and the Agency from the most recently approved ICR. The increase in burden cost is due to an increase in labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to 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 Ec. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Jan 15, 2013 Jkt 229001 notification report, 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 115 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: Owners and operators of hospital, medical or infectious waste incinerators. Estimated Number of Respondents: 5. Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and annually. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 3,912. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $664,375, which includes $378,826 in labor costs, $90,924 in capital/startup costs, and $194,625 in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens; however, this increase is not due to any program changes. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because the revised standard has been in effect for more than three years and the requirements are different during initial compliance for new facilities, as compared to on-going compliance for existing facilities. The previous ICR reflected those burdens and costs associated with the initial activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing monitoring equipment, conducting performance tests and establishing recordkeeping systems. This ICR reflects the on-going burden and costs for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3415 continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of semiannual reports. In addition, there are a number of new facilities that are in the initial compliance phase described above. The overall result is an increase in burden hours, labor costs, and O&M costs. Furthermore, a portion of the labor cost increase is a result of increased labor rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. Additionally, there is an adjustment decrease in capital costs in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is not due to any program changes. The previous ICR assumed all capital costs associated with monitoring were incurred during a single year; whereas this ICR calculates the average capital costs for new sources of each year that is covered under the ICR.

(Renewal).
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1730.09, OMB Control Number 2060-0363.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2013. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to 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 Ec.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial 
notification report, 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 115 
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: Owners and operators of hospital,

    Estimated Number of Respondents: 5.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and

operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the 
total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens; however, this increase is not due to any program 
changes. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred because 
the revised standard has been in effect for more than three years and 
the requirements are different during initial compliance for new 
facilities, as compared to on-going compliance for existing facilities. 
The previous ICR reflected those burdens and costs associated with the 
initial activities for subject facilities. This includes purchasing 
monitoring equipment, conducting performance tests and establishing 
recordkeeping systems. This ICR reflects the on-going burden and costs 
for existing facilities. Activities for existing source include 
continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of semiannual 
reports. In addition, there are a number of new facilities that are in 
the initial compliance phase described above. The overall result is an 
increase in burden hours, labor costs, and O&M costs. Furthermore, a 
portion of the labor cost increase is a result of increased labor 
rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics to calculate burden costs.
    Additionally, there is an adjustment decrease in capital costs in 
this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is not due to any program 
changes. The previous ICR assumed all capital costs associated with 
monitoring were incurred during a single year; whereas this ICR 
calculates the average capital costs for new sources of each year that 
is covered under the ICR.
