Abstract: This ICR renewal is being submitted for the Air Emission Standards for Tanks, Surface Impoundments and Containers (40 CFR Part 264, Subpart CC and 40 CFR Part 265, Subpart CC), which were promulgated on December 6, 1994. The requirements of this subpart apply to owners and operators of all facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous wastes in tanks, surface impoundments and containers that are subject to subparts I, J or K of these parts, except for Sections 264.1 and 265.1 and those management units identified at Sections 264.1080(b) and 265.1080(b). Also, the requirements of this subpart apply to large quantity generators that manage hazardous wastes in either tanks, or containers (262.34(a)(1)(i and ii)). 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 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Facilities that treat, store, or dispose of RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 264, subpart CC and 40 CFR part 265, subpart CC) Estimated number of respondents: 6,209 (total). PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Frequency of response: Occasionally, annually, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 712,293 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $82,092,685 (per year), includes $12,418,000 for operation & maintenance costs annualized capital and no annualized capital/start-up costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the respondent burden hours and costs from the most recently approved ICR. The previous ICR used rounded numbers, while this ICR uses exact values in calculating burden hours. In addition, this ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate burden costs. There is also an increase of one response in this ICR due to a correction. The previous ICR did not account for the annual project report for the Sisterville Plant when calculating the total number of responses. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Each year, EPA will attempt to compare gas cylinders from every specialty gas producer being used by ambient air monitoring organizations. Cylinders will be verified at a predetermined time each quarter. In order to make the appropriate selection, EPA needs to know what specialty gas producers are being used by the monitoring organizations.

    ICR Information: EPA ICR Number 2375.02; OMB Control Number 2060-
0648.
    Abstract: This ICR includes ambient air monitoring data reporting 
and recordkeeping activities associated with the 40 CFR part 58, 
appendix A, Ambient Air Quality Surveillance Quality Assurance 
Regulations. These data and information are collected by state, local, 
and tribal air quality management agencies and reported to the EPA.
    The EPA Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Program's quality assurance 
requirements in 40 CFR part 58, appendix A, require: ``2.6 Gaseous and 
Flow Rate Audit Standards. Gaseous pollutant concentration standards 
(permeation devices or cylinders of compressed gas) used to obtain test 
concentrations for CO, SO2, NO, and NO2 must be 
traceable to either a National Institute of Standards and Technology 
(NIST) Traceable Reference Material (NTRM), NIST Standard Reference 
Materials (SRM), and Netherlands Measurement Institute (NMI) Primary 
Reference Materials (valid as covered by Joint Declaration of 
Equivalence) or a NIST-certified Gas Manufacturer's Internal Standard 
(GMIS), certified in accordance with one of the procedures given in 
reference 4 of this appendix. Vendors advertising certification with 
the procedures provided in reference 4 of this appendix and 
distributing gases as ``EPA Protocol Gas'' must participate in the EPA 
Protocol Gas Verification Program or not use ``EPA'' in any form of 
advertising.''
    These requirements give assurance to end users that all specialty 
gas producers selling EPA Protocol Gases are participants in a program 
that provides an independent assessment of the accuracy of their gases' 
certified concentrations. In 2010, EPA developed an Ambient Air 
Protocol Gas Verification Program that provides end users with 
information about participating producers and verification results. 
Each year, EPA will attempt to compare gas cylinders from every 
specialty gas producer being used by ambient air monitoring 
organizations. Cylinders will be verified at a pre-determined time each 
quarter. In order to make the appropriate selection, EPA needs to know 
what specialty gas producers are being used by the monitoring 
organizations. Therefore, EPA needs information from each primary 
quality assurance organization every year on specialty gas producers 
being used and whether the monitoring organization would like to 
participate in the verification for the upcoming calendar year.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: State, local, and Tribal air quality 
management agencies.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory under 40 CFR part 58.
    Estimated number of respondents: 211 (total).
    Frequency of response: Yearly.
    Total estimated burden: 70 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 
CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $4,674 (per year). There are no annualized 
capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the total estimated 
respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB.
