Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 141 / Friday, July 22, 2016 / Notices inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with the standards. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Nitric acid plants. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subparts G and Ga). Estimated number of respondents: 29 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 2,190 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $2,970,000 (per year), which includes $2,740,000 in both annualized capital/startup and operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This increase is not due to any program changes. The change in the burden and cost estimates occurred due to industry growth in the past three years, resulting in an additional number of respondents that have become subject to Subpart Ga. Additionally, this ICR assumes that all respondents will have to familiarize themselves with regulatory requirements each year. These changes result in an increase in the number of responses, labor hours and costs, and total O&M costs. Courtney Kerwin, Acting Director, Collection Strategies Division.
