Abstract: Owners and operators of chromium electroplating or chromium PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 anodizing tanks at existing and new facilities performing hard chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, and chromium anodizing are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, as well as the applicable specific standards found at 40 CFR part 63, subpart N. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining 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 reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Hard chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, and chromium anodizing facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart N). Estimated number of respondents: 1,343 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, annually, semiannually and quarterly. Total estimated burden: 242,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $28,300,000 (per year), includes $20,400,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the respondent burden hours and a decrease in the number of annual responses and the annual cost burden. The burden currently approved by OMB is the sum of the burden from EPA ICR Number 1161.10 (2012 amendment) and EPA ICR Number 1611.07 (existing rule). Changes to the OMB approved burden occurred because this ICR is updated to reflect the ongoing compliance burden and cost of the 2012 rule, and to use more recent estimate on the number of sources for all burden calculations. The increase in the respondent labor hours is primarily due to the correction of a data entry error, which was that the number of area sources using wetting agents monitoring on a regular schedule was switched with the number monitoring on a reduced schedule, and vice versa.

    Abstract: Owners and operators of chromium electroplating or 
chromium anodizing tanks at existing and new facilities performing hard 
chromium electroplating, decorative chromium electroplating, and 
chromium anodizing are required to comply with reporting and record 
keeping requirements for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 63, 
subpart A, as well as the applicable specific standards found at 40 CFR 
part 63, subpart N. This includes submitting initial notifications, 
performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining 
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 reports are 
used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Hard chromium electroplating, 
decorative chromium electroplating, and chromium anodizing facilities.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart N).
    Estimated number of respondents: 1,343 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, annually, semiannually and 
quarterly.
    Total estimated burden: 242,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $28,300,000 (per year), includes $20,400,000 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the respondent 
burden hours and a decrease in the number of annual responses and the 
annual cost burden. The burden currently approved by OMB is the sum of 
the burden from EPA ICR Number 1161.10 (2012 amendment) and EPA ICR
