The increase in respondent labor hour is caused by a change in assumption; in this ICR, we assume all existing sources will take some time each year to re-familiarize themselves with the rule requirements. There is also a small increase in the total O&M cost due to rounding of all calculated values to three significant digits. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.

Abstract: These standards apply to the area source NESHAP for chemical manufacturing (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVVVV). There are nine area source categories in the chemical manufacturing sector: Agricultural Chemicals and Pesticides Manufacturing, Cyclic Crude and Intermediate Production, Industrial Inorganic Chemical Manufacturing, Industrial Organic Chemical Manufacturing, Inorganic Pigments Manufacturing, Miscellaneous Organic Chemical Manufacturing, Plastic Materials and Resins Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Production, and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing. The requirements apply to process vents, storage tanks, equipment leaks, wastewater systems, transfer operations, and heat exchange systems at affected sources in each area source category and are combined in one subpart. The standards are based on EPA’s determination of generally available control technology (GACT) or management practices for each area source category. Form Numbers: None. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4623 Respondents/affected entities: Chemical manufacturing area source facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart VVVVVV). Estimated number of respondents: 498 (total). Frequency of response: Initially and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 9,590 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $2,220,000 (per year), includes $1,250,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment decrease in the respondent burden and number of responses from the most recently approved ICR. The decrease occurred because the rule has been in effect for three years, and the burden associated with initial compliance (e.g. initial performance tests and notification reports) differ from the burden for ongoing compliance (e.g. submittal of semiannual reports). However, there is an adjustment increase in the total capital and O&M cost. This is primarily due to two reasons: (1) The previous ICR presented capital costs as annualized costs over 15 years, rather than one-time costs; and (2) the total number of sources with O&M cost (i.e. maintain systems and monitors) has increased now that the rule is fully implemented.
