Abstract: Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, as well as the specific requirements at 40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja. 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: Petroleum refineries constructed, reconstructed, or modified after May 14, 2007. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart Ja). Estimated number of respondents: 150 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 64,300 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $22,100,000 (per year), includes $15,700,000 annualized capital and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the number of PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 81321 responses, capital costs, and O&M costs as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The change in the burden and cost estimates for the renewal of this ICR occurred because we assumed that all refineries are now in full compliance with the rule initial flare compliance requirements since the standard has been in effect for more than three years. The active ICR reflects those burdens and costs associated with the initial activities for refineries that included purchasing monitoring equipment, conducting performance test(s) and establishing recordkeeping systems. This ICR renewal addresses the burden and costs for existing refineries to comply with the ongoing compliance requirements, including continuously monitoring of pollutants and the submission of semiannual reports. There is an increase in the respondent labor hours since we assumed all respondents are now required to comply with the flare ongoing rule requirements each year compared to one third per year in the active ICR. In addition, the labor burden calculation in the renewal includes additional hours associated with managerial and clerical work since the active ICR did not break down these types of labor costs, which also contribute to labor burden increase.
