This information collection addresses the burden associated with industry reporting of such notifications. The respondent may claim all or part of a notice confidential.

Abstract: The NESHAP for Boat Manufacturing (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart VVVV) covers resin and gel coat operations at fiberglass boat manufacturers, paint and coating operations at aluminum boat manufacturers, and carpet and fabric adhesive operations at all boat manufacturers. Owners or operators of boat manufacturing facilities are required to submit initial notification, performance tests, and periodic reports. Respondents 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. Semiannual reports are also required. These notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance; and are required, in general, of all sources subject to NESHAP. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Boat manufacturing. PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59671 Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVV). Estimated number of respondents: 144 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, quarterly, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 23,543 hours (per year). ‘‘Burden’’ is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $2,303,583 (per year), includes $800 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in 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 the respondent burden costs due to an increase in labor rate. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. Richard T. Westlund, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
