Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General Provisions of the NSPS (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 reports, 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. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Existing and new large appliance coating facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart SS). Estimated number of respondents: 72 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 7,740 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $787,000 (per year), which includes $8,400 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a small increase in the total estimated respondent burden and cost compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to assuming that all existing respondents will need to spend some time reviewing the rule requirement each year to re-familiarize themselves with it. In previous ICRs, it was assumed that only new respondents would need to read and review the rule requirement. In addition, a portion of the increase in burden cost is due to PO 00000 79891 ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY [EPA–HQ–OAR–2003–0073, FRL_9940–48– OAR] Proposed Information Collection Request; Comment Request; Distribution of Offsite Consequence Analysis Information Under Section 112(r)(7)(H) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The RMP includes information on offsite consequence analyses (OCA) as well as other elements of the risk management program. On August 5, 1999, the President signed the Chemical Safety Information, Site Security, and Fuels Regulatory Relief Act (CSISSFRRA). The Act required the President to promulgate regulations on the distribution of OCA information (CAA section 112(r)(7)(H)(ii)). The President delegated to EPA and the Department of Justice (DOJ) the responsibility to promulgate regulations to govern the dissemination of OCA information to the public. The final rule was published on August 4, 2000 (65 FR 48108). The regulations imposed minimal requirements on the public, state and local agencies that request OCA data from EPA. The state and local agencies who decide to obtain OCA information must send a written request on their official letterhead to EPA certifying that they are covered persons under Public Law 106–40, and that they will use the information for official use only. EPA will then provide OCA data to those agencies as requested. The rule authorizes and encourages state and local agencies to set up reading rooms. The local reading rooms would provide read-only access to OCA information for all the sources in the LEPC’s jurisdiction and for any source where the vulnerable zone extends into the LEPC’s jurisdiction. Members of the public requesting to view OCA information at federal reading rooms would be required to sign in and self-certify. If asking for OCA information from federal reading rooms for the facilities in the area where they live or work, they would be required to provide proof that they live or work in that area.

EPA estimates a total of 715 hours (annually) for state and local agencies requesting OCA data from EPA and providing read-only access to the public. For the public to display photo identification, sign a sign-in sheet, certify that the individual has not received access to OCA information for more than 10 stationary sources for that calendar month, and to request information from the vulnerable zone indicator system (VZIS), EPA estimates a total of 800 hours annually. The total burden for the members of the public, state and local agencies is 1,515 hours and $48,854 annually (4,545 hours and $146,562 for three years). The labor and wage rates would also be adjusted based on the current rates available. Dated: December 16, 2015. Reggie Cheatham, Director, Office of Emergency Management.
