At that time, the EPA will issue another Federal Register notice to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA) contains several provisions directing the EPA to require source owners to conduct monitoring to support certification as to their status of compliance with applicable requirements. These provisions are set forth in section 504 and section 114 of the CAA. Under CAA section 504(c), each operating permit must ‘‘set forth inspection, entry, monitoring, compliance, certification and reporting requirements to assure compliance with the permit terms and conditions.’’ See VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:55 Jul 08, 2016 Jkt 238001 also CAA section 504(a) (each permit shall require reporting of monitoring and such other conditions as are necessary to assure compliance). CAA section 504(b) allows us to prescribe by rule, methods and procedures for determining compliance recognizing that continuous emissions monitoring systems need not be required if other procedures or methods provide sufficiently reliable and timely information for determining compliance. Section 114(a)(1) of the CAA provides additional authority concerning monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements. This section provides the Administrator with the authority to require any owner operator of a source to install and to operate monitoring systems and to record the resulting monitoring data. We promulgated the Compliance Assurance Monitoring rule, 40 CFR part 64, on October 22, 1997 (62 FR 54900), pursuant to these provisions. In accordance with CAA section 114(c) and CAA section 503(e), the monitoring information source owners must submit must also be available to the public except under circumstances set forth in section 114(c) of the CAA. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for the EPA’s regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9. We are soliciting comments to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting election submission of responses. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are all facilities required to have an operating permit under Title V of the CAA. See section 502(a) of the CAA, which defines the sources required to obtain a PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44861 Title V permit. See also 40 CFR 70.2 and 71.2. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory under Title V of the CAA. See section 502(a) of the CAA, which defines the sources required to obtain a Title V permit. See also 40 CFR 70.2 and 71.2. Estimated number of respondents: There are 24,121 pollutant specific emission units (PSEUs), where the number of respondents is the number of PSEUs subject to the compliance assurance monitoring rule, and 116 permitting authorities. Therefore, the estimated number of respondents is 24,237 (total). Frequency of response: At least every 6 months per Title V, 70.6(a)(3)(iii)(A) and (B). Total estimated burden: 51,080 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,998,453 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation and maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of 607 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to adjustments to the estimates (e.g., to account for permit issuance increases). There is an increase of 1,114 respondents in the average annual number of respondents. This increase is due to an increased number of permitting authorities (4 more) and to an estimated increase in the number of PSEUs (1,110 more). Dated: July 1, 2016.

rule, 40 CFR part 64, on October 22, 1997 (62 FR 54900), pursuant to 
these provisions. In accordance with CAA section 114(c) and CAA section 
503(e), the monitoring information source owners must submit must also 
be available to the public except under circumstances set forth in 
section 114(c) of the CAA. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a 
person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless 
it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control 
numbers for the EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9.
    We are soliciting comments to:
    (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden 
of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of

    (iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting election 
submission of responses.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by 
this action are all facilities required to have an operating permit 
under Title V of the CAA. See section 502(a) of the CAA, which defines 
the sources required to obtain a Title V permit. See also 40 CFR 70.2 
and 71.2.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory under Title V of the 
CAA. See section 502(a) of the CAA, which defines the sources required 
to obtain a Title V permit. See also 40 CFR 70.2 and 71.2.
    Estimated number of respondents: There are 24,121 pollutant 
specific emission units (PSEUs), where the number of respondents is the 
number of PSEUs subject to the compliance assurance monitoring rule, 
and 116 permitting authorities. Therefore, the estimated number of 
respondents is 24,237 (total).
    Frequency of response: At least every 6 months per Title V, 
70.6(a)(3)(iii)(A) and (B).
    Total estimated burden: 51,080 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $1,998,453 (per year), includes $0 annualized 
capital or operation and maintenance costs.
    Changes in Estimates: There is an increase of 607 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This increase is due to adjustments to the estimates 
(e.g., to account for permit issuance increases). There is an increase 
of 1,114 respondents in the average annual number of respondents. This 
increase is due to an increased number of permitting authorities (4 
more) and to an estimated increase in the number of PSEUs (1,110 more).
