Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 60 / Thursday, March 30, 2017 / Notices any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with these standards. Form numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Graphics arts facilities. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 Subpart QQ). Estimated number of respondents: 21 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 1,920 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $198,000 (per year), which includes $0 annualized capital/startup and operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the estimates: There is an adjustment increase in the total estimated burden and cost 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 for two reasons: (1) This ICR assumes all existing respondents will have to familiarize with the regulatory requirements each year; and (2) the burden has increased due an increase in the estimated number of sources subject to the standard. The number of sources has increased by one since the last ICR to account for industry growth in the past three years. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

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 PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15705 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 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. 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 E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1 15706 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 60 / Thursday, March 30, 2017 / Notices 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 the 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 (four more) and to an estimated increase in the number of PSEUs (1,110 more).

    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 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.
    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

[[Page 15706]]

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 the 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 (four 
more) and to an estimated increase in the number of PSEUs (1,110 more).
